“It’s a touching and rewarding finale to a fantastic series, and “personal challenges” is definitely a very fitting title!” - Rainbow Book Reviews “Loved this book!!!” - Love Bytes Reviews “KC wells continues to blow me away with each book that is written and this one did the same.” - Reader Review
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.
This story about a pig’s perseverance is great. With the help of a couple other animals, especially Charlotte the spider, Wilbur’s life is saved. Even though he was the runt, he had people (and animals) that believed in him. Charlotte’s Web is a very fun and entertaining read for any age.
This book could be used in many ways in the classroom. It could be used to read as a class, literature circles, or independent reading. The book could cover comprehension, characters, setting, plot, etc.
