#AugustABC #Day9 #Innocence A pig named Wilbur may be one of the most innocent and sweet characters I‘ve ever had the pleasure to read. This was one of my favourite books growing up so of course it was one of the first middle grade books I bought for my granddaughter. Though I loved the character of Charlotte, she wasn‘t enough to overcome my arachnophobia unfortunately! If you haven‘t bought your little bookworms this book yet, do them a favour.

Charlotte‘s Web (TL) written by E.B White and illustrated by Garth Williams. This famous book tells the story of a pig name Wilbur and a spider named Charlotte. One day, Wilbur is in danger of being slaughtered. In an effort to save him, Charlotte writes notes in her web praising Wilbur in all sorts of ways! This cute story would make a great LC for older elementary school students.

alexialovesmith Because this book was turned into a major motion picture, it only makes sense to watch it with your students after reading! The following link takes you to an online activity site. https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/activities/teaching-content/charlottes-web-f... This website gives students the opportunity to make their own comics, learn about the author, and much more. 3w
alexialovesmith Using this website meets UDL2.5 by using the internet and EL13 by having students complete the activities. This site is very interactive! #ucflae3414su19 3w
fquadri This book is great for LC. I love this book and will definitely use it in my future classroom. Thanks for sharing! 3w
DrSpalding Scholastic is a high-quality resource and your image is beautiful! I could not help but think of Wilbur when Kendyl brought those cute little piglets. Use this classic for literature circles in your classroom. 3w
gabbymartin @alexialovesmith I LOVE this book! I read it as a child & was obsessed! I would definitely have my students watch the motion picture because I watched it so many times & it is a great remake for the book. I love your website you used too! 3w

This is an old classic I grew up reading as a young adult. Charlotte‘s Web is a TL, Newbery award winning book written by E.B. White. Diving deep into the understanding of friendship, Wilbur and Charlotte develop a close relationship. They are faced with many challenges on and off the barn and work together to conquer it all. Using this story as a SR, teachers can lead group discussions to dig deeper into the true meaning of friendship. EL...

This TL Newbery honor award novel written by E.B. White is a great addition to a classroom library. This story is about Fern and Wilbur who are great friends on Fern‘s family farm. She knows her dad must end Wilbur‘s life and she opposes it as best as she can. This is where Wilbur meets Charlotte, which leads to a friendship. Find out what happens when Charlotte doesn‘t return with Wilbur back to the farm from the fair! #UCFLAE3414SU19

Macker11 The class can use this book in a LC and talk about the farm animals friendship and loyalty to one another. They can use UDL 5.3 to build their fluencies and comprehension of the book during discussions with their LC group. Also ESOL#13 providing them with review and preview activities for discussion. https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/unit-plans/teaching-content/charlottes-web-t... this has resources they can do as a LC as well. 1mo

I really enjoyed reading Charlotte‘s Web (RF) because it is a book about friendship and love. This book is about a spider named Charlotte, a pig named Wilbur and a girl named Fern who are all friends and help each other in beautiful ways.

fquadri This award winning book has won the John Newbery Medal and I think it would be good for AS because the author, E.B White has written many award winning books and it would be a wonderful idea for students to study his life and inspirations. 1mo
fquadri EL strategy 29 can be used for this book in order to help ELs understand the main concepts of the book. UDL strategy 2.4 can be used so that teachers can help ELs learn about the books central themes through their native language.
This website provides a whole lesson plan on the book that can be used by teachers.

How can anyone not like this classic?! While I knew the story and had seen the movie(s) multiple times, I don‘t know that I‘d ever actually read this book. This was my boy‘s first chapter book that we read together. Love all the opportunities for vocab growth presented in the book without it being too overwhelming for early readers. My boy had already seen the movie and that helped his reading stamina...he knew what was coming...

AndreaG ...and would push through to get to parts he remembered from the movie that he enjoyed. AND even though, he knew how the story ended, I still saw the emotion in him toward the end. Reading a story is just different and awesome. Huge thumbs up. I feel like this is an excellent choice for kids moving from picture books to chapter books. Challenging, but not overwhelming. 2mo

This is the first chapter book I finished with my daughter. I had forgotten what a powerful story of friendship this is. It‘s full of selfless choices and loyalty. It also tackles serious themes, but does so with elegance, a no nonsense approach, and beautiful language. Beautiful and accessible for any age!

“This lovely world, these golden days.”

“‘You have been my friend,‘ replied Charlotte. ‘That in itself is a tremendous thing.‘”

My great grandmother (yes, "Great") died recently at the age of 99. I loved her dearly and though I know it was her time, I'm having some trouble accepting that she's gone.
Anyway, I was a reader for the funeral and at one point a spider was sitting on the microphone. I managed to handle that pretty well, but I felt like it was a message from my grandmother. It was a little nudge to reread this book.

"But Charlotte," said Wilbur, "I'm not terrific."

"That doesn't make a particle of difference," replied Charlotte. "Not a particle. People believe almost anything they see in print." [89]

"People believe almost anything they see in print." Isn't that the frightening truth?!

"Can I have a pig, too, Pop?" asked Avery.

"No, I only distribute pigs to early risers," said Mr. Arable. "Fern was up at daylight, trying to rid the world of injustice. As a result, she now has a pig. A small one, to be sure, but nevertheless a pig. It just shows what can happen if a person gets out of bed promptly. [5]

To Fern: You go, girl! I like to rid the world of injustice, too! ??

rretzler Isn‘t it funny that Charlotte‘s Web is so beloved after all these years and it only won the Newbery Honor, while no one reads the Newbery Medal winner from that year anymore 3mo

Charlotte‘s Web is a very famous and well liked RF novel. This Newberry award winning book follows a pig named Wilbur and a young girl named Fern who adopts him. The two develop a close bond and friendship early on in the book. The suddenly, Wilbur is sent to a new farm away from Fern. At this farm, Wilbur becomes friends with a spider named Charlotte.

MNelson98 Wilbur soon learns that he will eventually be slaughtered, so Charlotte tries to help him avoid this fate throughout the book. This novel is a very heartfelt story that students will absolutely love. It is a perfect book for IR. Since students will be reading this individually, ESOL strategy 6 is important to use to make sure students are comprehending the story. ESOL strategy 9 can be used so students will have notes from the novel for future 4mo
MNelson98 assignments or discussions. UDL 2.1 can be used for students to learn new vocabulary shown in the book. UDL 7.1 can be used for IR because students will be able to make their own decisions regarding a reading plan.

This classic TL novel would be the perfect RA. I only know this, of course, because this is the first novel I can remember being read to me in school. I remember everyone getting a class copy, the smell of old books (is that a guilt pleasure for anyone else??) and most of all the illustrations. I found a great resource https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/unit-plans/teaching-content/charlottes-web-t... that could aid teachers in a RA.

kennedimartin Using UDL 5.1, after reading the novel a teacher could show the movie adaptation of the book and also then talk about the difference between movies and books. a ESOL 17 could also apply by the teacher reading aloud and the movie and discussion after. If you have never actually read this, I highly recommend doing so! #lae3414sp19 4mo

At some point in our lives we will be given the opportunity to meet someone that we often misunderstood but actually is a good person through and through. That's charlotte, the arachnid fellow that befriended a lovely pig. She dedicated her life to helping her friend survive the world and left her legacy before departure.

A classic like no other. As you go into the mind of a young girl in and around her barn as she meets amazing and infighting animals. The animals talk to her and amongst themselves, this timely classic is not only a good read but a great place for a child to explore their imagination and truly paint a picture in their own head.

I read this book in second grade. As a child, you are captured by the simplicity of good friends and family. However, when you read this tale as an older person themes of life and death are beautifully strung together. I believe that this american classic should be loved and cherished by all.

MODERN FANTASY
