So I got this fabulous idea from Ian over at Byrdseed.com (http://www.byrdseed.com/halloween-characters-dressed-as-characters/ ). We did it last year with the Wizard of Oz characters and since we now wrapping up our Charlotte's Web unit, I thought it would be a good way for the students to think about character traits and translate that into what the character would wear as a costume for Halloween. Here's what they came up with:
Charlotte as Dorothy because she was thankful for what she has. Wilbur as the Scarecrow, because he's humble. Templeton as a monster-with 3 yellow eyes (great details!) because he's mean.
Charlotte-a helpful lady, Wilbur-a person because he's cute and Templeton an evil witch.
Charlotte-a computer because she's helpful and smart. Wilbur as a monkey because he was always doing something or helping. Templeton as a fat man eating fish :) because he was always eating something and only cares about himself.
Wilbur-a daisy (isn't that just the cutest illustration!), Charlotte a heart for her babies.
Charlotte-a fairy so she will not get stepped on. Wilbur dresses like Charlotte- (love this-he was always trying to spin webs, etc.) Templeton like cheese!
Charlotte-something elegant and dazzling (vocab words :), Wilbur as Miss Trayers because he was nice. Templeton as a trash monster.
Charlotte-a love bug because she sings to Wilbur. Wilbur as a heart because his heart was in the right place. Templeton as the trash garden-he is in the dump.
I know they are hard to read, but I thought they just nailed their characters!
