E.B. White Novel Units-Charlotte’s Web and Stuart Little

I used to teach at a charter school and we followed Core Knowledge.  I absolutely loved Core Knowledge and how we built novel studies into our day.  One of the novels that we were required to read to the students was Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White.  I students loved this story of the adorable little pig but were still struggling with truly comprehending what was being read to them.  So to help students fully understand what they were reading, I created Charlotte’s Web Novel Unit.

This novel includes:

-22 Comprehension Checks/Quizzes (1 for each chapter) with answer key
-Text to Self Connection: Venn Diagram
-Predictions Graphic Organizer
-Bubble Map
-Fact/opinion sort
-Cause and Effect blank
-Cause and Effect with Causes written
-Two Writing Prompt Page
-Making words
-Acrostic Poem Template and Craftivity
-My Mental Image Page
-Retell Cards

Text-to-Self: Choose your own talking animal and create a book cover.

I just had to include this cute little craftivity.

After using this resource for two years when I taught 2nd grade, I realized how much of a difference it made for my students to fully understand the story.  Then I moved to a new school and a new grade level.  I was now teaching 3rd grade and no longer reading Charlotte’s Web, we were now asked to read Stuart Little.  So, of course, I felt like my students needed a novel unit to help them understand Stuart Little, so the Stuart Little Novel Unit was created.

This novel unit includes:

-15 Comprehension Checks/Quizzes (1 for each chapter) with answer key
-Text to Self Connection: Venn Diagram
-Predictions Graphic Organizer
-Bubble Map
-Fact/opinion sort
-Cause and Effect blank
-Cause and Effect with Causes written
-Writing Prompt Page
-Making words
-My Mental Image Page
-Retell Cards

Some of my favorite activities:

Both of these novels are also great to do back-to-back and I have been doing just that since I have moved back to second grade.  We start with Charlotte’s Web and then we read Stuart Little.  The students LOVE it!

If you are interested in having your students read both novels, I have bundled both of these novel units together: Bundle Up! E.B. White Novel Units.

You can find all of these resources in my TpT Store.

Happy Reading!
