Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh is a classic book for children ages 8-12. It has been read by many children all over the world for many years. I have created some Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh Spelling Lists to supplement this book. These 6 lists are FREE for you to use today with your children!
I read this book when I was in school and my kids will read it when they are old enough! It is a Newberry Award winning book about mice and rats working together. My initial reaction to reading a book about mice and rats is not “Yea! I can’t wait!” However, once you start reading the book you become engaged in this wonderful story. It also makes a wonderful read-aloud book for classrooms and homes.
As kids read the book, they will likely come across words they don’t know or are unfamiliar to them. These make great vocabulary words for them to work on. You can pick out a few and give them some activities like dictionary work or making pictures for describing the words. I have chosen to make 6 spelling lists for this book. These spelling lists are grouped by chapters. You can read a few chapters or assign a few to read and work on the spelling words for that section. Then you can test them on the spelling words if you choose. They are words that should be learned easily enough for this reading level. These are also words that should challenge them, yet not frustrate your children.
