Today we made comics of Charlotte's Web. We went on the computers to make them. First we picked the template. Next we picked the background. Then we added the characters. The last thing we did was add the speech bubbles. The speech bubbles let us know what each character was saying.
We listened to the rest of Charlotte's Web. We found out that Charlotte dies at the fair. Wilbur was sad that his friend died. Templeton used his teeth to get Charlotte's egg sac. Wilbur took it back to the farm. In the spring, the eggs hatched. Three of the baby spiders stayed. Their names were Nelly, Joy, and Aranea. The other spiders flew off.
We got in pairs and wrote as many words as we could think of about Charlotte's Web. We typed them into a program called Wordle. We made pictures with the words.
We wrote 5W poems about Charlotte's Web. We picked a character and wrote poems about them answering the questions Who? What? When? Where? and Why?
