The Power of Words in Charlotte's Web

"How can a few good words save a pig's life?" Posed with this question, your ELD students explore E.B. White's Charlotte's Web in a meaningful, valuable way. By analyzing specific word choice from the book, especially the excerpts describing Charlotte's silken praise for Wilber, young readers can extend their vocabulary and context clue skills. The lesson includes a chart with quotes from the book, an adjective-guessing game, and a prompt for an original short story.
