Holocaust Books Needed for GUIDED READING!

My students need quality books that can be used in small groups to teach them about the Holocaust.

My Students

Many of my students have not gotten hooked on history or been exposed to the Holocaust. This history needs to be shared with children. Holocaust books can seem depressing but more often courage, inspiration, and helping those in need are common themes students can embrace and learn from.

My sixth grade students are a hard-working bunch.

They come into my classroom ready to read, and I give them the books to do just that. They are eager to learn and embrace new and old novels as well as different genres. Many of the students are casual readers who need a nudge in the right direction, and many more are voracious readers looking for something different.

My Project

My students will be using these Holocaust books in guided reading and small groups. Different groups will be reading different books and will be collaborating to compare and contrast stories. These books will allow students to make connections, and receive support from the teacher if they need it. Students will learn important themes about how to treat others, how to accept people with different beliefs and backgrounds, and how to make a difference in their world.

These books are so important because they don't only make an impact academically, they also impact a child's social well-being.

Students will learn about a tragic time in history, explore the actions of those involved, and discuss issues that still exist today.
