Bringing Nebraska History to Life With Literature!

My students need twenty-three copies each of Roughing It on the Oregon Trail The Time-Traveling Twins and The Prairie Adventure of Sarah and Annie, Blizzard Survivors.

My Students

My students are hard working fourth graders. We are a Title I school with three hundred twenty-five students located in Nebraska. We are eighty percent free or reduced lunches with a variety of programs to help our underachieving students. We have consistently been improving our state test scores in reading, math, and writing. Last year we were one of two schools in our state to receive a National Professional Learning Community Award.

Our staff works constantly to improve instruction and engagement while teaching skills to further help our students reach their learning targets.

We celebrate learning, have interventions in place, and strive to have positive parent communication. Our students are from all different social-economic backgrounds and ethnic groups. Though our students have limited experiences in their backgrounds, they are anxious to learn and achieve success. The teachers and students come together to create a fun and engaged learning atmosphere for everyone who walks into our building.

My Project

These two book titles, Roughing It on The Oregon Trail and Blizzard Survivors, will make a difference for my students by giving them another perspective and added activities to our Nebraska units on the Oregon trail and homesteading.

These books could be used as whole or small group reads during social studies or reading.

Questions can be derived and used to help deepen learning plus be a way to practice text data analysis for our state reading tests.

Reports and writing recounts could be assigned in groups for presentations and role playing.

School lives can be improved by making reading and social studies fun. Using a variety of materials keeps students' attentions and provides different vocabulary to learn. Literature that pertains directly to our state also will help deepen learning by isolating events that happened during the development of Nebraska.
