I want to show my 5th grade classes "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" on Tuesday the 23rd before we get out for Thanksgiving Break. I teach English Language Arts and Reading. I need to have an academic reason to show this movie in my classroom. How can I use this for reading? I can't think of anything other than I want to show how an author's work can come to life. I feel like I NEED more than just that...Help!!!! ETA: I feel like all we do in my class is grammar, spelling, and reading workshops. I work at a charter school that is college prep. When I'm not teaching them the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills they need, we are taking Mock TAKS and Benchmarks. I feel like these 5th graders are tested to death and need something fun once in a while.
