Fun Wanted Posters and Projects for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory By Roald Dahl blue bullet point Students love creating wanted posters featuring characters from their favorite books.

blue bullet point Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl is an ideal book for this activity because the four naughty children in the story make perfect characters for wanted posters.

blue bullet point This set of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory lesson plans includes a wanted poster that is designed specifically for each of the 4 naughty children: Augustus Gloop, Veruca Salt, Violet Beauregarde, and Mike Teavee.

blue bullet point In addition, there are also wanted posters designed specifically for these 9 characters: Willy Wonka, Charlie Bucket, Oompa - Loompa, Mr. Bucket, Mrs. Bucket, Grandpa Joe, Grandma Josephine, Grandpa George, and Grandma Georgina.

blue bullet point You can let students choose which characters from the story that they want to create wanted posters for. These wanted posters are also ideal for collaborative group projects.

blue bullet point For students who are often reluctant about writing, I have found that my students think that this writing task is scrumdiddlyumptious and they tackle this assignment with great enthusiasm and creativity!

blue bullet point For this writing assignment, students have to describe the character's appearance, what the character is wanted for, where the character was last seen, and the reward amount. Next, students write a detailed narrative describing the action that happened, and what made the character commit this crime.

Wanted Poster Project Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Lesson Plans blue bullet point This set of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory lesson plans contains two templates that assemble into a wanted poster. The completed wanted poster measures 13 inches in height and 10 inches in width.

blue bullet point This set of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory lesson plans includes:

  • 5 Page Bulletin Board Banner (shown above)
  • Assembling Directions (1 page)
  • First Draft Worksheets (2 pages)
  • Final Draft Black and White Templates (2 pages)
  • Final Draft Color Templates (2 pages)

blue bullet point There is a separate set of individualized worksheets and wanted poster templates for each of the 13 characters in the book.

blue bullet point Each character set contains 7 pages of printable worksheets and templates, for a total of 91 pages of printable teaching resources in this set.

blue bullet point In addition, there is a 5 page bulletin board banner and a grading rubric, making this 97 pages of printable teaching resource in total.

blue bullet point There is a second version of each character's worksheets and wanted poster templates that contains British spelling rules (colour instead of color, favourite instead of favorite, etc).

1. Assembling Directions (1 Page)

blue bullet point This fun project contains directions on how to cut the two templates and then glue them together to form a wanted poster.

Below is an example of the directions worksheet for the Veruca Salt wanted poster.
The other 12 characters' worksheets are not shown.

2. First Draft Writing Worksheets


Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Fun Projects Wanted Posters First Draft Worksheets blue bullet point I believe that the writing process is important and that teachers should use process writing whenever possible.

blue bullet point For this reason, my students never begin their wanted posters by writing on their final draft templates, instead they write on first draft worksheets. Next, my students edit and revise their written work on their own, with a partner, or in individual writing conferences with me.

blue bullet point Students write about the following topics for this fun creative writing assignment:

  • Physical Description
  • Wanted For
  • Last Seen
  • Reward Amount
  • Narrative Describing the Crime

blue bullet point On my first draft worksheets, I have designed the writing line spaces to match the spaces allotted on the final draft wanted poster templates.

Below are examples of the first draft worksheets for the Veruca Salt wanted poster.
The other 12 characters' worksheets are not shown.

3. Final Draft Wanted Poster Templates


Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Wanted Poster Projects Examples of Templates blue bullet point Each character set includes 2 final draft wanted poster templates. After students have written their final drafts, they cut out these two templates and glue them together to form a wanted poster.

blue bullet point Assembling these wanted posters is easy:

  • Cut the dotted line off the bottom section and glue this piece onto the top section.
  • Trim the wanted poster by cutting along the thick black border.
  • Draw a picture inside the empty box.

blue bullet point The completed wanted poster projects measure 13 inches in height and 10 inches in width.

blue bullet point Below are examples of the two final draft templates for the Veruca Salt wanted poster. The other 12 characters' templates are not shown.

4. Color Final Draft Templates

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Color Project Templates for Wanted Posters blue bullet point When I am first introducing my students to a new project, I believe that it is important for them to have a visual example of what their final draft projects will look like. I always assemble the project myself beforehand and display it at the front of my classroom.

blue bullet point To save you time in coloring the wanted poster that you show to your students as an example, I have included color wanted poster templates for you to use so that you do not have to spend time coloring these templates yourself.

blue bullet point You can also choose to print out these color templates to give to your students, instead of having students color their templates themselves using the black and white templates.

blue bullet point Below are 6 examples of the final draft wanted poster color templates. Each of the 13 different characters' posters are designed in a different color scheme.

Below are examples of the Wanted Posters for
Willy Wonka and Charlie Bucket.

5. Grading and Evaluation Rubric

Wanted Poster Grading Rubric Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Projects blue bullet point A grading rubric is included in this set of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory lesson plans. I believe that it is important for students to evaluate their own work, so this project contains an assessment section for both students and teachers.

blue bullet point When students evaluate their character projects, they color in the faces on their grading rubric worksheets. When a teacher evaluates the projects, the teacher circles the small numbers inside each box on the printable worksheets.

blue bullet point Below is an example of the wanted poster grading rubric.

6. Bulletin Board Display Banner


Free Bulletin Board Display Banner Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Wanted Posters blue bullet point I know that it takes teachers a lot of valuable time to assemble their bulletin board displays.

blue bullet point Many teachers spend hours of time cutting out large display letters or making a banner on their own at home on their computers.

blue bullet point This time is valuable and better spent on developing your classroom curriculum and grading papers, so I have designed a banner for your bulletin board display.

blue bullet point If you have access to a laminating machine, you can laminate this banner so that it is durable and you can use it year after year for bulletin board displays of your students' Charlie and the Chocolate Factory wanted posters.

blue bullet point Even though this is a short writing assignment, I prefer to have my students complete a first draft of this assignment before they write on their final draft templates. I help my students edit their first drafts before they start on their final draft character templates.

blue bullet point Below is an example of a first draft worksheet along with the final draft template for Veruca Salt. The line spaces on the first draft match the line spaces on the final draft.

Heidi, I just had to write and let you know that your website has helped me create the most awesome author study of Roald Dahl's books. My students loved completing the big animal shaped projects you designed for The Enormous Crocodile, Esio Trot, and The Giraffe, and the Pelly and Me. For the final project, they had so much fun writing and drawing about the characters from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory using your Willy Wonka Factory project. Thanks for sharing your scrumdiddlyumptious ideas !

I just wanted to say thank you for the most amazing teaching resources that I have ever come across in my thirty years of teaching. I have used many of your book report sets this year and my students absolutely loved them. What was particularly pleasing was seeing some of my reluctant readers (especially the boys) really wanting to read books and complete the activities. Keep up the great work!
