Literature: Charlotte's Web - Native Seakers
One of the domains in the curriculum is the Domain of Appreciation of Language, Literature and Culture. This domain relates to the ability of learners to appreciate literature that is written in English and through it develop sensitivity to a variety of cultures. Charlotte's Web is suitable for Native Speakers in grades 3 and 4.
The following division of skills during class time is suggested as a general guide. Skills do, of course, overlap and should reinforce one another.

writing skills 33% (including writing workshop)

All these skills can be taught while reading Charlotte's Web.
