Charlotte's Web
Charlotte's Web - E.B. White,Garth Williams,Rosemary Wells

Charlotte's Web is a classic story that has many activities that can go along with it. One activity could be a character study of each character in the book or you could have students choose one character to do a character study on. This book is a level 4.4 on the accelerated reading leveling system.

Charlotte’s Web
Charlotte's Web - E.B. White,Garth Williams,Rosemary Wells

Charlotte’s Web is on a 4.4 accelerated reading level (4th grade, 4th month reading level). This story is about a runt-born pig named Wilbur, whose life was saved by Fern. This book shares Wilbur’s life experiences. One fun activity for students to complete after reading Charlotte’s Web, is to make a spider out of a paper plate. The legs of the spider are created out of words that have been cut out of magazines (much like the strips of paper of words that Templeton found to describe Wilbur in the story). These words should describe the student who is creating the spider. The teacher can display these crafty spiders throughout the room.

Some Book about Some Pigv and it's Terrific!
Charlotte's Web - E.B. White,Garth Williams,Rosemary Wells

This book was always one of my favorites as a child. It was written on a DRA reading level of 40, or for audiences of third through eighth grade. This book can be used in a classroom to assist teachers in covering a vast variety of topics in their curriculum. An example of one of these topics would be personification. This is exhibited throughout the course of the entire book. Aside from the terrific content that is within this book, this is a wonderful story that would warm anyone's heart. I highly recommend it!

Goldenhand, Garth Nix
Goldenhand - Garth Nix

This marks a return to form after the disappointing Clariel. It also marks a return to the story of Lirael, Remembrancer and Abhorsen-in-waiting, picking up during the events of the novella, The Creature in the Case. We also get a new protagonist in the form of Ferin, a girl from one of the far northern tribes, beyond the Old Kingdom's power. It's a ripping yarn and I gobbled it down.

 

For over 3/4 of the book I thought it was just setting up for a sequel, then, abruptly, I realised it was going to resolve the plot before it ended, meaning that the actual quest is rather rushed and the final victory felt too easy, given such a formidable opponent, but over-all I thought this was a lot of fun.
