Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

We are reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. When we are done the book, we are going to watch the movie. Mrs. Malkoske is going to give us a treat. We're almost done the book. -Karys
There are two different movies. We're watching the old movie because the old movie is better. In the first one, it's a little bit scary when they go down onto the boat. Willy Wonka sings a song and he offers Mike Teavee's mom a tiny gumball and she says "No". On the boat ride they see a scary part becuase it is pictures that are scary. I think there's one of a tarantula. In the new movie it's kind of the same but they don't see the tarantula. -Elly
While we are reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory book, in some chapters there are songs that the Oompa Loompas sing. The Oompa Loompas are Willy Wonka's helpers. When there are songs in the book, we watch the videos on the computer. I like the Oompa Loompa's songs.  -Sydney

Here are the videos:
Augustus Gloop (old movie)
Augustus Gloop (new movie)
Violet Beaureguard (old movie)
Violet Beaureguard (new movie)
Veruca Salt (old movie)
Veruca Salt (new movie)
In the old movie, Veruca Salt goes into the golden goose room because she wanted a golden goose. Her father and mother give her anything she wants when she screams and kicks and yells. So she said "I want one!" In the end she fell down a garbage shoot because she was a BAD EGG! -Rhianna
In the new movie, Veruca Salt wants a squirrel but when she opened the door the squirrels were staring at her and she was staring at the squirrels. Then the squirrels got her left arm and right arm and left leg and right leg. The king squirrel checked if she was a good nut or a bad nut. She was a BAD NUT and she went in the garbage shoot. -Sam
Today the funniest part in the book was when they were walking down the hall, and the doors said a bunch of yummy candies on them. One door said "SQUARE CANDIES THAT LOOK ROUND". At first I didn't know what that meant. Then when they went in the room everybody was saying "They look square, not round!" But then Mr. Willy Wonka said "I never said they were round, I said they are square shape and they LOOK A-round." Also, the Oompa Loompas had painted happy faces on the square candies so the candies looked around the room. -Syd

Amazingly, I've never read the book OR seen either version of the movie - maybe I should take the day off and come and visit your class when you're watching it! ;)
