The very top long rectangle is to draw a cover picture. We have not done this part yet because I'm saving it for the end. I'm envisioning a picture of the chocolate factory or a family picture.
The smaller square at the top is for the character's profile picture. We drew a picture of Charlie Bucket.
The two rows of small squares are for friends, photos, and "likes." The first six (first three in each row) are being used for friends. So far, we only have Mr. Wonka and an Oompa-Loompa. The kids argued that the other children were not their friends because Charlie would never want to be friends with those kids. I'm guessing that we'll fill in the other four with family members. Or we could do the chocolate shop owner where Charlie find the last ticket because he told Charlie to run home and not sell it. The next three in each row are for photos. So far, we have a picture of Charlie's house, a golden ticket, and the gates of the factory with a mass of people outside. Granted, they are tiny pictures, but they work for students because they don't have a large space to fill. The last three in each row are Charlie's "likes." So far, we have a bar of chocolate and something else that I can't remember right now.
The rest of it is the timeline. We do a status update after every chapter. Technically, we should have started at the bottom and worked up so that the newest was at the top, but I think that would have been too confusing. This is where some of the students struggled. They wanted to write a summary of the chapter instead of Charlie's thoughts during the chapter. We did the first thirteen chapters together until most of them got it. We are now on chapter twenty-five, and all but one student has it down. She understands the summary part, but can't get it into Charlie's words. She is actually one of my better students, so I find that fascinating.
Update - Here is our finished Facebook page.
And now I have a question. What are the rest of you doing for Monday's mandated lessons about the Constitution?
