These are all the worksheets I designed for the 1977 Disney Movie The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.
(The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh was a combination of 3 previously released Winnie the Pooh shorts: Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree (1966), Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day (1968), and Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too (1974).)

These worksheets follows the same pattern and approach as the worksheets I previously designed on Peter Pan, The Jungle Book, 101 Dalmations, and The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad.   In order to avoid repeating myself too much, I'm going to try to keep the explanation to a minimum here.

I have, however, made one major change--I've increased the difficulty of the task by increasing the number of missing words for each section from 5 to 10.  I thought my students were ready for the challenge.
(Note: I don't view this movie worksheets as vocabulary lessons.  The missing words are primarily just to force interaction with the sentences.  Therefore the missing words are selected based on how salient they are in their context, and not on how useful they are for vocabulary building.   As a result of this, the selection of words is not ideal for vocabulary acquisition: some of the words are very basic and will already be known to the learner, while others are low frequency vocabulary and not useful at this level.  Also words are often repeated between worksheets).

Showing movies in class is based on the philosophy that young learners benefit most from lots of input.  The majority of this input should be highly graded, but I think some authentic material in the classroom is not a bad thing.  (I try to limit myself to about 5 minutes of this movie at a time, so they get about 5 minutes of authentic input during a class of 2 hours.  Although, granted, by the time I've gone through all the activities surrounding this movie, it can eat up anywhere between 10-25 minutes of class time.)

Although the actual movie itself is far above the students' level, the worksheets are based off of the "grade the task not the text" philosophy, and so the intention was to make the task as easy as possible.

In the class, the movie worksheets follow these steps.
1. Students are introduced to 10 vocabulary words on PowerPoint.
2. Students read together "The Story Last Time" section on the PowerPoint
3. Students listen quietly to the section of the movie
4. Students are given the script, and fill in the missing words.
5. The movie is played again.  Students follow along with their script to check their answers.  The teacher pauses the movie after each answer is given, to ensure everyone has the right answer, and to allow weaker students to find their place in the script again.
6. After the movie finishes, final feedback is on PowerPoint.

The pictures for "The Story Last Time" Section on PowerPoint all come from this website here.
The basis for the script comes from this website here, but I also proofed it myself and I've adjusted it wherever I thought it was in error.

I used various links to online version of the movie (all of which are linked to off of the Google Slides presentations).  However, as the movie is copyrighted material, it's only a matter of time before the video is taken down, and the links become invalid.  If at all possible, it's probably best if anyone re-using these worksheets just buys the DVD.

Each movie worksheet also contains a link to a quizlet quiz.  The quizlet quiz reviews all of the vocabulary covered up until that point:

Addendums
I tried to limit myself to only 4 pages for each class (which comes out to 2 pieces of paper when photocopied double-sided).  There was one exception, however.  Part 19 is 5 pages long.  This was a simple mistake on my part, but I only realized the mistake after the worksheet was finished.  And so, for that one part only, I just allowed myself an extra sheet.
