Bandit's Moon A Fourth Grade Adventure in Early California
My students need to have 34 copies of Bandit's Moon to follow along as I read aloud. This will help with our study of figurative language!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Do you remember that book you read in class that you couldn't wait to get back to? My students have yet to discover the magic of what authors like Sid Flieschman can do to the imagination!
My students are 4th graders at a public school in California.
They are very eager to learn and love good literature! We spend a lot of time in the classroom diving into texts and discussing books. They love to read, and I want to give them every opportunity to enjoy books and discuss them with their classmates.
This book challenges students thinking and allows them to connect our social studies curriculum with language art. It is a historical fiction, so as we read, students will also be able to tie together fiction and non-fiction material. My students will travel back to the days of early California where bandits ruled the trials. They will gather information on the legendary Joaquin Murrietta, and they will gain a better understanding of California history.
This project is so important because this book meets so many standards for my students.
They will have the opportunity to read with me, study the rich language, and learn about California history. There are very few books that can do all of these things for my 4th grade students. Most of all, they are excited to read and learn!
