The Chocolate Factory - Pin It to Win It!

If you've been following my past posts you know that I just finished a run of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with  my fourth graders. They loved it and I did too. The book just leaves so much for the imagination to grow. While I was creating lesson plans for the book I thought it would be fun to throw a little TpT packet together.

116 pages later, my novel study packet is done. You can go back through my last seven posts to see some of the pages in action. If you like this idea and would like a whack at picking the packet for free you are in luck!

Let's play a little Pin It to Win It. If you visit the store product here:

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Novel Study

On the left hand side there is a little Pin It button. Make a copy of your pin post and list it in the comments below for a chance to win it for free. The contest will end next Friday and the winner will be revealed here.

If you'd like a SECOND chance at winning it for free, have a look at my ScrappyGuy Facebook page and become a fan.

Here's a little


GREETINGS TO YOU, the lucky finder of this golden packet of stuff! I'm so excited to release this product since it is about one of my all time favorite books. Charlie and I go way back and he continues to amaze me every year.

This packet is geared more towards the Fourth Grade common core curriculum, but third and fifth should be able to use it to its full advantage.

Inside you'll find a veritable rabbit warren of goodies. There are pre-reading activities such as predictions and characterizations. There are things to do while you are reading such as chapter summarizations, story flow charts, and some poetry. Then there are tons of activities to do after you read such as writing prompts and yummy websites to visit to learn more.

Of course you'll find vocabulary tests, comprehension questions, and a final exam for each chapter.

I've included a section on Grammar and Math activities. You can find such topics as:

*Homophones – To, Too, Two
*Linking Verbs
*Verb Tenses
*Run-On Sentences
*Prepositional Phrases
*Possessive Pronouns
*Parts of Speech
*Subject-Verb Agreement
*Relative Pronouns

*Area and Perimeter
*Candy Bar Math

Just for added flavor I've also thrown in a Chocolate Inventing Machine Project with a rubric for scoring!

**All Answer Keys are located at the back of the packet so that you can print out pages back to back if you need to.

I hope you enjoy the chocolately goodness in this novel study. I'd love to hear how you are using it in your classroom!
