The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe - C.S. Lewis

The Lion, The with and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis is such a good book to read. Its a story of four siblings who discover a hidden world within a wardrobe found while playing hide and seek. The children ar part of a great prophecy to help Aslan save Narna from the white witch. I would rate this book a four and a half out of five stars and it is listed as a 940L on the Lexile scale. As an activity for my class, I would read the book aloud to my class during group reading time. During the book (between the chapters each day that we stop) i would have a different activity set up for my students with activity sheets. One side that I would love to use it describing the characters given context clues from he book. I think this would be a great way to expand their knowledge of comprehension and context clues.

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe - C.S. Lewis

This was one of my favorite books growing up. I love how much creativity and imagination was put into it. Reading this book is like an adventure itself. You can truly visualize the settings, even though they’re unrealistic.

 

 

In the classroom, this book could be used for a class reading, literature circles, independent reading, etc. There is so much content that can be used for comprehension lessons also.

Prince Caspian
Prince Caspian (Chronicles of Narnia Series #4) - C.S. Lewis,Pauline Baynes

I have an impression of each book in my head, and it turns out those impressions are mostly wrong. For some reason I remember Prince Caspian as being a lot of walking in the woods, when in fact the characters don't spend that much time walking in the woods at all.

 

This is one of my favorite in the Narnia series. I especially liked Caspian's backstory (which I had completely forgotten) this time around. It's like a little adventure tale inside an adventure tale.

The Last Battle
The Last Battle (Chronicles of Narnia, #7) - C.S. Lewis,Pauline Baynes

Friends, I'm not going to lie, this is a weird book. But I remember liking it the first time I read it. I stayed up late to finish it. There's something about the descriptions of the new lands at the end that I found captivating. Same thing happened to me on this reread.

 

But the rest of the book is so strange. For some reason I thought the bits with the shed were a lot longer than they actually are. Basically from my first reading I only remembered the shed and that people go into it and it's really dark (I don't think these count as spoilers as it's only kind of sort of what actually happens in the book).

 

The allegory gets pretty heavy handed in this book. Moreso than any of the others. And there's that whole bit where

 Susan doesn't end up with the others at the end of it all which is bs.

(spoiler show)

 

Both of the most common reading orders end with this book, which makes sense (the title is literally The Last Battle), but I'm glad I'm not ending my Narnia journey here this time.
