This Word Bank contains starters and vocabulary to support the composition of a persuasive letter to a character from the novel "Charlotte's Web" by E B White. Children write to persuade Mr Arable to spare the life of Wilbur, the smallest of a litter of piglets.

The set contains frames with starters to structure an opening statement and persuasive paragraphs, as well as topic-specific vocabulary, link words and phrases and general words.

Children can use the Clicker Board "Saving Wilbur – Persuasive Writing Planner" to plan out ideas before writing. For other Clicker resources to support work on this novel, search for Charlotte's Web on LearningGrids.
