Matilda review

Matilda - Quentin Blake, Roald Dahl

Another of Ronald Dahl's classics, Matilda is a wonderful book to bring imagination and magic to the classroom. I would use this text to teach the importance of good character. I could use a variety of different activities including a compare and contrast between characters (Ms. Honey and Ms. Trunchbull) and a writing prompt asking the students what good and kind things would they do for others if they had magical powers. I would use this book in 3rd-5th grade. The guided reading level is S and the Lexile level is 840L.
