Global Read Aloud

A Modified Charlotte’s Web Unit

For the 2012 Global Read Aloud project, participants chose the chapter book Charlotte’s Web. I was disappointed at first.  How are we ever going to participate in this project with such a high level book with so few pictures?  Okay, I thought, I think we can do this.  After all, we’ve read Freckle Juice in … Continue reading »
