As My Quest Continues...
Bridge to Terabithia - Katherine Paterson

...to read some of the Scholastic books I purchased for my sons during the elementary years, this one came highly recommended by both.  Now I know why...

Fun On A Rope Swing
Bridge to Terabithia - Katherine Paterson

Bridge to Terabithia showcases children's creative sides. Two friends create a magical kingdom in their imagination and the only way to get there is by using a rope swing. The main female character, Leslie, dies in accident which causes Jess to reflect back on his memories of Terabithia and Leslie. This book introduces the themes strength and courage in the wake of a tragedy. While reading the book, I would want my students to think creatively and design a magical kingdom in their minds. After reading, the students will write about their kingdom and draw an picture of it. This activity provides students with a creative outlet.

Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson
Bridge to Terabithia - Katherine Paterson,Donna Diamond

Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson is a great novel that tells a touching story about friendship and loss. This novel is easily relatable to any audience as most have felt like an outsider at some point in their lives. It is easy to fall in love with the characters and relate to their conflicts in the novel.


This is a perfect novel for the classroom as it has a great deal of symbolism for students to learn from. The symbolism in this book can be broken down during class discussions and further enhanced through a variety of comprehension activities. There are endless possibilities to using this novel in the classroom!

That's What Friends Are For!
Bridge to Terabithia - Katherine Paterson

AR: 4.6

Grade Level: 4th-8th

Summary: This book is all about imagination! Two friends come together to build a magical kingdom, until something tragic happens. However, this devastation is an impetus for Jess' understanding of strength and courage. 

Idea: I would use this book for the purpose of building character. I would allow for my students to come up with their own magical kingdom (class-wide). They would be required to build a script, then act it out. It would be a made from scratch. It would be an original readers' theater!

Bridge to Terabithia is a great novel that tells a story about two lonely children that feel like outsiders create a magical forest kingdom with their imaginations. This novel tells a story about great friendship and the loss of it. The real life conflicts that the characters experience throughout this novel make you love them all the more. I would use this novel in my classroom to not only teach life lessons but also practice with segmenting of events.
