Charlotte's Web

By E.B White

This lovely story begins with a heart. When Fern was going to see what Papa was doing she saw that he was going to kill a pig but Fern saved him and named him Wilber. The problem was when Wilber got older Fern needed to let him go to her uncle's farm. Then Wilber met Charlotte and his world changed.    

I think the author did an amazing job because his description was the best it made me feel like I was in the book. When he was describing Charlotte it seemed Charlotte was wright next to me.   

  When I was reading this weak I notice that when I was reading I was at the farm cleaning write next to  Lervy!! But when I was reading I didn't even Know I was reading I just kept on reading. Another thing is that the word radiant on Charlotte's web was not so interesting but when I saw Wilbur jumping up and down my mouth dropped opened. Also I didn't like when Charlotte kept saying this and that over and over again. Then they had a meting that took up a hole chapter just how to spell Terrific. Last is that I think that people will get suspicious about the web.                                                 

Fern and Avery are going to the fair!! Templeton and Charlotte are going to help Wilbur win the fair but first they are going to need a word. Charlotte tells Templeton that she needs a word  for Wilbur. First Templeton refused but the thing that convinced him is that he can steel all the food after. When Templeton comes with a word Charlotte asks him what is it. Then he said humble. I think what will happen in the book is that Wilbur will get first place in the fair the next day because the word will probably win because of the words on the web.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Yeah!!!!!! Mr. Zuckermen  won $25! When Mr. Zuckermen got a prize everyone was cheering and when the  cheering got softer Wilbur got  a medal! After people left Wilbur was eating when he was he heard the most terrible news. Charlotte told Templeton that she wanted him  to get her egg sack. When Templeton got the sack he gave it  to Wilbur to take care of it. When Wilbur ask her a question, and when he waited a moment he relied that she had died then he relied that was the terrible news.

Nice job, Gavin! I enjoyed your writing on this entry! I agree that the book begins with a very brave act of love. When I first read the book, I remember being shocked that anyone would think of harming a pig because it was born small. I remember being so relieved when Fern was successful in stopping her father. How did that part make you feel? Would you have made the same choice as Fern? Which parts of his description did you like the best? Was it the way he compared Charlotte to something else or just the way he used detail? Which character is your favorite? Why?

I like the interesting way you chose to write your entry for this week, Gavin. I also liked that you were so deeply involved with your book that you didn't realize you were reading. I like it when I "lose" myself in a book and just enjoy the characters and story, too. It's funny that you weren't as impressed with Charlotte's word as you were with Wilbur's jumping. What did you think of the geese and their spelling skills? Was it funny or annoying to hear them spell "terrific" over and over again? Which animals on the farm are your favorite and why? I'm glad you are enjoying the book!

Great summary, Gavin! We all know what motivates Templeton! I can imagine that he really loved eating all of the dropped and discarded fair fare! When you made your prediction, make sure you support it with evidence from the book. What have you noticed about the attention that the words in the web draws? How will this help Wilbur? Also, which characters do you like the best so far? Do any of them remind you of people you know?

Gavin, your last entry tells a little about what happened, but it's unclear what the terrible news is. Also, you didn't give your opinion of what happened in this scene. How did it make you feel? What are your concerns for the characters? What do you think will happen next? What did you think of Charlotte and of Wilbur or Templeton at this point in the story. Make sure you give your opinion. Also, makes sure you read your entry out loud before you close your Tackk so that you can fix any errors.
