The Adventures of Dod

The Teachers’ Corner is meant to help educators and parents use The Adventures of Dod series as a tool. Kids learn from every book they read, however, they learn more when the right words and issues are discussed shortly after they’ve read about them.

The following pages contain curriculum resources on a chapter by chapter basis. You will find vocabulary, class discussion questions, and word searches. Other parts of this website may be useful for teachers in the classroom, such as Picture Puzzles, Mazes, Maps and Arts & Crafts.

Feel free to print as many copies as you want, just not for commercial gain.

WHO SAID IT?

~ Dilly, Book 1

"In your dreams, maggot!" 

~ Dod, Book 1

"Con won't mind.  If he's not here yet, we better eat while we still have a chance--that boy's as big as a barge. I'd pull a frog out my nose if he eats anything less than half-a-cow per day." 

~ Boot, Book 2

"Please, son, try to be good tomorrow." 

~ Bonboo, Book 1

"I guess that's what you get for sleeping in.  You're a link left out of the chain."

"If you've brought us all the way over here to show us the insides of that thing, I'm not going to be pleased."
