That's how to describe Matilda, a kindergartner in the novel by Roald Dahl, Matilda. Roald Dahl is one of my favorite childhood authors and I own almost all of his books. I have loved reading through all of them with my own two elementary-aged children and I am excited to share that wondrous world with your children! Over four weeks, we will read and study the...
Students will be able to summarize Matilda. Students will be able to analyze characters, plot development, themes, and more. Students will be able to made text-to-text, text-to-self, and text-to-world connections.
I am a certified ELA teacher in the United States and taught 7th-9th graders at a public charter school for 2 years. I have also taught an ongoing class on Roald Dahl's shorter children's stories since the beginning of summer 2022. I also have two children of my own (ages 8 and 5) whom I have read all these novels to them.
Students will be expected to read every night following the reading schedule. Students should also finish each in-class assignment if they have not during class (especially if the parent wants the class graded).
Students will need their own copies of Matilda by Roald Dahl (these can be found at local libraries or local bookstores, or even online). Students may need to print out a worksheet before class - specific materials for each class will be posted a few days before class begins.
Each class, I will check for comprehension. This will be based off participation as well as individual answers given during questions that students can answer privately. If you would like me to grade a student's work and progress and provide a letter of achievement after the course finishes, please let me know as soon as possible. As a certified teacher, I know many parents appreciate this for their state homeschool/charter school requirements.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
We will be utilizing NearPod, however, students do *NOT* need an account to participate. Roald Dahl is a notable and world-famous children's author. His works are all complete fiction. But, he does tend to use hyperbole and exaggerations a lot. Usually this tends to be in the form of adults insulting kids or "punishments" happening, such as the Trunchbull throwing a girl out the window by her pigtails. If your learner is sensitive about more tense aspects in the novel, please let me know ahead of time. However, these books were specifically created for children in this age range, and I have read the books numerous times. I've read all of these novels out loud to my own two children (currently 8 & 5) and they both have seen the movie interpretations.
Students will need their own copies of the Matilda (these can be found at local libraries or local bookstores, or even online).
