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

Charlotte's Web is about a pig named wilbur who is born a runt. Fern protects him and saves his life. The book illustrates the aventures and obstacles wilbur overcomes. This book can be used in the classroom to introduce characters, setting, and plot. The book can also lead to an activity where the students find words in the dictionary and find their definitions along with a sentence using the new vocabulary word.

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

When Ferns father spares the runt of the liter, Fern names him Wilbur. Wilbur is sold to Ferns uncle and in his barn is where Wilbur meets a spider named Charlotte. While there are plans to slaughter Wilbur, Charlotte weaves praise of Wilbur into her webs, which gives the farmers reason to spare Wilbur. He is entered into the fair for his extraordinary abilities but does not take home a prize. Charlotte lays eggs that are kept safe by Wilbur, only the three smallest stay to keep Wilbur company and stay in the doorway where Charlotte was previously. I would use this book to have the students identify character traits about themselves or classmates that Charlotte would put in her web about them!

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

Charlotte’s Web is the story of a runt pig and his journey to stay alive. Wilbur was the smallest in his litter of piglets and seen as a waste time because of it. After her was rescued by Fern, he grew into a fine prize-winning pig. He did not do this alone though. He had the help of his barnyard friends, especially Charlotte. Charlotte was a spider who saw something special in Wilbur and believed it was unfair for him to die. She supported him up until her last breath and trusted him with her children. Although most of Charlotte’s children flew off into the wind, three stayed and lived their lives in the barnyard with Wilbur. I would love to do an activity where students had a web and wrote three qualities they admired about a classmate. The students would write the words on the web, and write the definitions of the words in their writing journal. The Fountas and Pinnell reading level is R.

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

Charlotte's Web by E.B. White is a level R on the Fountas and Pinnell reading level scale. Charlotte's Web is about a pig named Wilbur who is the runt of the litter. He is saved by Fern and becomes Fern's pet. Wilbur is sent to Mr. Zuckermann's farm who is Fern's uncle, and Fern tries to visit as much as she can, but Wilbur is lonely. Until, he meets a spider named Charlotte. Wilbur finds out that in the winter he is going to be slaughtered for his meat, but Charlotte comes up with a plan to make Wilbur seem like a special pig. Charlotte starts spinning these words in her web to make Wilbur look like an amazing pig which saves him. Wilbur is put in the county fair because of the miraculous webs, and Charlotte comes along to keep spinning the words in her webs. While they are at the fair, Charlotte also spins a web for her eggs, and tells Wilbur that she will not be able to come back with him to the farm after the fair. She tells him to take care of her eggs, and he does so until they hatch and all of them but three leave. Those three keep Wilbur company during his long and happy life on the farm. This book is amazing for students lessons to teach them that they are all special in their own way. An activity you could do is tell students to create their own webs that have a characteristic that makes them special spun into the web.

Charolette's Web
Charlotte's Web - Garth Williams,E.B. White,Kate DiCamillo

Charlotte’s Web, written by Garth Williams, is a fantastic read. It’s about a girl named Fern who adopts a little pig named Wilbur who becomes best friends with a spider named, Charlotte.  Wilbur was a happy and carefree pig until he finds out that the owner of the farm is fattening him up for Christmas dinner. To stop that from happening, Charlotte uses her web to spell out different adjectives that describes Wilbur. Wilbur eventually becomes a hit at the county fair but will that be enough to keep him safe from the owner? I can have the students describe someone that they love using 3 adjectives!
