Have you ever won an award or a medal? Hopefully, not for being a pig! How did it make you feel? What did you do or say?

In Chapters 17 and 18, you read about the final word that Charlotte will spin in to her web.

Tell your teacher the word Charlotte chose and the two reasons this is a good fit for Wilbur. If you need a reminder about the events in Chapters 17-18, review the Related Lesson in the right-hand sidebar.

Complete the Charlotte's Web Chapter Summary in your notebook on Page 10. (Downloadable Resources) Add a summary for Chapters 17-18. You can use the same format you used in previous lessons to write your summary. Look back in the book for help if you need a reminder about what happened. Be sure your summary includes these five points:

  • Somebody (who was the chapter about)
  • Wanted (what did the character want)
  • But (what was the problem)
  • So (what happened next)
  • Then (how was the problem solved or how did the section end)

Now, think about what you have read in previous chapters. What do you think will happen in the next two chapters? On the right side of the page, write a prediction about what you think will happen in Chapters 19-20.

You will come back to this page for other chapter summaries.

In Chapters 19-20, you will read some words that may be unfamiliar to you. To prepare yourself for reading these words, print Charlotte's Web Vocabulary 19-20 from Downloadable Resources in the right-hand side bar.

After you follow the instructions to assemble and glue the page to your notebook on Page 31, add it to the Table of Contents page in the beginning of the notebook. Don't forget to number your pages. You will work on this page in the Got It? section.

Once you have your vocabulary page ready, move on to the Got It? section to begin reading the next two chapters of Charlotte's Web.
