    RL.4.7

    Make connections between the text of a story or drama and a visual or oral presentation of the text, identifying where each version reflects specific descriptions and directions in the text.

    How is everyone approaching the above standard? I'd like to approach it with a very short text and accompanying movie, but I'm not having any luck finding the two. Any help out there? Thanks.

    Can you use fairy tales? There are so many different versions of the common fairy tales out there and most of them have been made into a movie. You can also usually find a reader's theater script as well.

    I use The Grinch, right before Christmas. It's also a great way to tie in figurative language.

    Do your students read Charlotte's Web? Using the first animated version of the book has always been successful for my fourth graders. The storyline is faithful, and dialogue is practically verbatim. Chapters are left out of the film version, and their omission is enough to fuel good discussion about what's truly important to a plot line.
