    Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
    By Tricia

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I read this to my first graders for the first time this year at Christmas time. They also really enjoyed it. I basically made a behavior/reward system from the book. I put 5 "golden tickets" made from yellow construction paper inside of 5 of the Hershey's miniature candy bars. Another teacher made "Wonka Bucks" for us on the computer. Students had to earn 10 "Wonka Bucks" in order to buy a Wonka Bar. I bought 5 prizes and wrapped them up for the winners to open as the tickets were found. I also posted a picture of the winner with their golden ticket on a poster board for all to see. At the end of the book, usually the last day before Christmas Break, we have a chocolate party and each of the students brings in something chocolate to share. We enjoy our treats as we watch the movie. Hope this helps!
