Are you looking for new reading comprehension activities for your homeschool reading classes? Middle school can be a hard time when it comes to reading comprehension and language. Many children find themselves at a different level of comprehension during this time.
For this reason, we like to stick with classic books and work on the individual level rather than a grade level. This has been a major advantage of homeschool for us, particularly because we are homeschooling a child with special needs. These Charlotte’s Web reading questions are a great way to cover the book and gain a good understanding of the theme of the book, get a look into the characters’ frame of mind, and more.
We decided to start our reading classes for the year with Charlotte’s Web because have been dealing with a few issues on understanding how to treat others so I thought this would be a good book for gaining a better understanding of the meaning of friendship and knowing to treat others how you would like to be treated.
In addition, it’s just a book for middle school and a good way to get the ball rolling for the year. I was actually surprised that my daughter hadn’t read it already while in public school, but it’s a quick and easy one to get under our belt for the year.
This is also a fantastic book to tie into the Halloween season with tons of opportunities to throw in a lesson on spiders. There are so many ways to study spiders. We labeled parts of the spider on models that we made and used those for spider vocabulary words. We also made super fun spider chocolate chip cookies to work on math and “life skills” as part of our Charlotte’s Web unit.
Charlotte’s Web Reading Questions
This set includes free reading worksheets based on Charlotte’s Web that are broken into 2 chapter segments. We decided to go with two chapters at a time as a way to easily get through the book. This really helped a lot in discussing the book, and working on other concepts that went along with the various chapters.
The questions included are simple to follow and come directly from the text. They are a great chance for reading comprehension and critical thinking for middle school children.
Included in this pack are two bonus pages that cover the use of nouns and proper nouns. I was planning on doing an entire parts of speech pack but decided to add these two in just for fun.
Update: It came to my attention that the old download program I was using decided to not work properly. I have updated this post to my new download manager. I am so sorry for any issues with the old download manager and thank you for your patience! If there are any issues with this one please don’t hesitate to send an email or comment.
