Get discussion questions, extension activities, vocabulary lists, and more for teaching with Charlotte's Web by E.B. White
As students complete the assignments in these two lesson plans and interact with the Charlotte's Web Flashlight Readers activity, they will:
- Explore character, setting, and story events, and organize a variety of these elements to construct story-related comic strips
- Use text, images, and dialogue to reconstruct story events and make up their own storylines or messages
- Use word analysis skills to identify parts of speech and to identify plural and singular nouns, synonyms, prefixes, and word meanings
- Learn about and discuss processes involved in producing a film version of a popular children's book
- Cooperatively work with a group of peers to develop a plan for and write a story-based script to perform for others
Students will use character, setting, and plot to retell and make up their own versions of story events from Charlotte's Web using a comic strip format and the Make Your Own Comics interactive activity.
In this activity, students exercise their vocabulary and word analysis skills by placing particular words on Charlotte's web until they discover the one perfect word that ends the game.
