Tips for Using Stuart Little by E. B. White in Your Lesson Plans
by Alexie Basil
Do your students already love Charlotte’s Web, E. B. White’s timeless favorite tale of friendship, love, and loss? Then they’re sure to love reading Stuart Little, the novel that E. B. White wrote before Charlotte’s Web.
Matthew Kaminski, a second grade teacher from Empowerment Academy in Jersey City, New Jersey, uses this quirky story of self-discovery and adventure to teach his students about what it means to have grit and always do your best, no matter the size of the challenge ahead of you.
Check out Matthew’s exclusive video book review of Stuart Little and see how E. B. White’s novel starring a clever and resilient mouse could fit into your teaching curriculum.
Let us know what you and your students think of Stuart Little, along with E. B. White’s other novels, The Trumpet of the Swan and, of course, Charlotte’s Web (which you can [re]discover in an exclusive teacher interview here). Tag us in your photos on social media @ScholasticBookClubs.
