I love to use this book as a read aloud! It begins by telling the students that witches are real and hard to recognize and that it is possible even that the teacher reading this book to them is a witch!! So, even if you don't use the book as a read aloud to the entire class, it might be fun for you to at least read the beginning out loud to entice your students into seeing what a fun book it is.
[NOTE: If you are interested in having a novel study to go with The Witches as well, take a look at my Teachers Pay Teachers store
. I have a 31 page packet that includes an 21 page student booklet along with an answer key plus a bookmark for logging vocabulary words as students read and use the packet.]
The Witches in a nutshell:
Roald Dahl warns children that this book is NOT a fairy tale! This is a delightful story set in both England and Norway where witches are lurking everywhere and looking just like ordinary women. Grandmamma teaches her grandson how to tell a witch from an ordinary woman and we find out just what happens when a witch makes use of her special Formula 86 Delayed Action concoction.
Ideal for students in grades 4-7. Reading level is approximately 5th grade.
