American Revolution Resources

Sunday, December 31, 2017

This year my school district fully adopted the Lucy Calkins reading and writing units of study. My team and I have spent hours working to align both units so that we can teach them at the same time. 

Of course, Lucy suggests having 30-55 texts in each classroom for students to use throughout the units. Even with an amazing school library there was NO way we were going to have that may books per classroom (we have 4 sections of 4th grade). 

I started by finding all of the online resources that I could, I mean these are FREE after all!

 

You can grab these QR Code printables from my Teachers Pay Teachers store.


Then I spent some time going through Lucy's suggested book list as well as other recommendations I found online to compile a list of my favorite American Revolution books for you! 

I started by adding ALL of these books to my Amazon classroom wishlist. Then I tuck that little link into each of my weekly newsletters. My team also spent some of our PTO money on a few of the texts and then of course, like all teachers do, I've spent my own money to get some of these texts for my classroom.
