A Sweet Experience

My students need 20 copies of 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory."

My Students

The students in our district are required to do two projects, one in the fall and one in the spring. Our spring project will consist of them reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The challenge will come when students are required to read and give reports on the chapters.

I am in inner city school teacher.

My students are in third grade. Our school is a Title 1 school and over 90 % of the school receive free or reduced lunch. They are bright 8 and 9 year olds with inquisitive minds. The school is in the south part of the city. I have a group of the brightest, most caring children a teacher could ask for.

My Project

I chose to read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory because this story tells of a young boy who despite the odds received much more than he ever desired. His family was poor, and had limited resources to provide for Charlie and the rest of the family. His birthday present consisted of a chocolate bar every year. This very chocolate bar meant the world to him. However, other children in the story were rich kids and didn't appreciate small gifts as Charlie did. Some of my students can relate to the conditions presented in this story, but most of all they will learn that your attitude determines your altitude.

This project is important because I want my children to develop an appreciation for reading and be able to discuss issues in the story.

This book provides lessons that will last a life time. I plan to center activities around the characters in this story and allow students to remember the events in this book and apply them in their own lives.
