This mini lesson uses Charlie and the Chocolate Factory as a model text to teach making connections with a Double Entry Journal. (The model text can be switched out to any current read aloud text being used)
The mini lesson and graphic organizer are included in this file.
I am in my third year of teaching fourth grade Reading, Writing, Science, and Social Studies. In the past I have taught 3rd grade and specialized in Everyday Mathematics. I started my career as a grades 3-5 remedial reading teacher.
