Charlotte’s Web Activities for Kids

charlottesweb2

Good morning readers! I have a cute post to share today of our creativity in action!

I’m sure most of you have seen my Charlotte’s Web unit study, but I wanted to show these cute webs that my kiddos came up with.  Tinker Bell decided to make one with pipe cleaners. By the time she was done she had a whole little family of pipe cleaner spiders. They turned out really cute.

True to form, Turbo took the web concept to a whole new level, and created this gigantic web using a hot glue gun and large popsicle sticks.  As you can see it’s about 2 1/2 feet tall or so. It went up to the middle of our school room door.

As you can see Tinker Bell LOVES pigs, so this book was right up her alley! She read through it quite quickly though, so she ended up doing a couple of lapbook activities each day. But I didn’t want to slow down her reading because she was really enjoying the book.

And here’s Tinker Bell’s completed lapbook along with some inside pictures for you.

While reading she learned about the animals on the farm, roman numerals, seasons, all about pigs, character studies, and some logical thinking skills. Along with a little creativity in the web building and her pet fair planning!

We’re plugging away through my Classic Literature units this year and having a lot of fun! Have you used any of my units? I would love to see pictures of what your kiddos have come up with! If you have an instagram account post your pics with #coahclassiclits so everyone can see, and you can follow me on instagram here!

    When you make lap books with your kids does each child make their own or do you work on just one together? Just purchased one of your single literature studies to try it out. I have two children that are reading the book together.

      Hi JoLynne,
      Each of my children make their own lapbook, but you could have them work together. Mine just prefer to cut out and color their own books

    Hi Erica,
    I purchased this unit and i have a question. For chapter 5 you give a website (http://starpoohonline.com/pigfacts/), which is supposed to help with Pig facts, yet it seems to bring me to some weird website which has absolutely nothing to do with pigs. Am i missing something or is this a mistake? Other than that, me and my kiddos are loving this unit!! Thanks so much!!

      Hi Veronica,
      Thanks for letting me know, it looks like the domain expired. I’ll have to find another good website to recommend for that!

      Hi Charis,
      The units are best for grades 1-5. It depends on how good a reader your 6 yr old is, if they’re still learning, you might want to do the unit with them, but read aloud to them. My units in Vol. 1 Mega Pack are meant for younger readers, so you might want to start with those units.

    Last week my kids made their spider webs and the beginning of this week made their barns! Thanks you so much for this unit study and ideas! I’m loving it.
