Story time with Ms Kildee
Updated: 4 days ago
CHARLOTTE'S WEB BY E.B WHITE
We start a new book today! I hope you enjoy it...it's one of my favourites.
Here's Chapter 1:
What do you think of Charlotte's Web so far? What characters have we met? What is the setting of the story?
Here's Chapter 2:
Are you enjoying the book so far? I hope so. This chapter begins with a wonderful description of the Zuckerman's barn. A fun activity would be for you to draw the barn based on this description-when you listened to the story, how did you picture the barn in your head? Another choice would be to try writing a description of your own home-the look, the smell, the sounds.
Here's Chapter 3:
In this chapter Wilbur is feeling lonely and disappointed because all the plans he made to do fun things have to be cancelled, and he must stay inside. I think we can all relate to that!! However, there‘s an exciting turn of events at the end of Chapter 4!
Here’s Chapter 4:
Wilbur has a new friend...and she’s not what he expected! He’s excited to meet her...but some of her ways are so different from his own that he finds it frightening. The author, E.B. White, explains it this way:
“Wilbur was merely suffering the doubts and fears that often go with finding a new friend.”
Have you ever felt that way when you met a new friend?
Here’s Chapter 5:

Here's the third part of the story!
Mrs. Hoppy certainly loves her pet, Alfie. I'd love to see your stories or pictures about your pets, a pet you'd like to have, a pet that you think would be interesting or even what you think would be the WORST pet, email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here's Part 4:
When Roald Dahl wrote his stories, he worked at his home-just like we're working from home! You can check out the shed where he wrote many of his books here:
I wrote an acrostic poem about Alfie, the tortoise:
A titchy tortoise who was
Loved by Mrs. Silver
Found himself lifted from his cosy home
Into a sea of other brown tortoises in Mr. Hoppy's flat!
"Everyone here looks just like me," he thought!
Write an acrostic poem about Alfie, Mr. Hoppy or Mrs. Silver and send it to email@example.com
