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

Charlotte's Web by E.B. White is one of my favorite books to read growing up. I remember our teacher reading this to us and allowing us to watch the movie afterward. The story takes place of a farm where a piglet (and also the runt of the litter) is saved by a farmers daughter, Fern. Fern raises the piglet into a healthy full grown pig, where is is then sold off to the farm down the street. There, Wilbur the pig meet Charlotte the spider and they become instantly acquainted. Wilbur is getting ready to be slaughtered when Charlotte devises a plan to save Wilbur's life. The story has many events where Charlotte saved Wilbur's life by writing messages in her web above his stall. I would rate this book a four out of five stars and is listed as a 680L on the Lexile scale. an activity I would use for this book would be a cause and effect sheet. i would have a list of causes (events in the story) and ask my students to list the effects of each cause.

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

A little girl named Fern convinced her father to spare the life of a piglet who she ends up naming Wilbur. After Wilbur does some growing, he is sold to Fern's uncle where there is more room. Wilbur tries to befriend the other farm animals but they reject him. Charlotte, a spider on the barn door, befriends Wilbur and keeps him company. Wilbur discovers that he is going to b slaughtered so Charlotte comes up with a plan to save him. Charlotte spins words describing Wilbur into her web which attracts a lot of local attention. Wilbur goes to the county fair and is praised by most of the people there. While at the fair with Wilbur, Charlotte spins an egg sac and ends up passing away. Wilbur takes the egg sac back home where is hatches and Charlotte's offspring keep Wilbur company. I would use this book to help with reading comprehension and sequencing.
