My Students

Reading historical fiction gives students opportunities to travel to distant times and places. These stories enable children to meet individuals that faced predicaments unique to their times in history, while also making connections to their own lives. Please help us on our journey.

We are a fourth grade class that is part of an environmental science magnet program.

The students are bright inquisitive learners. They are ready to travel beyond their inner city neighborhood; they are ready to explore the past; they are ready to further enrich their lives through the reading and sharing of historical fiction.

My Project

I am requesting 19 titles of historical fiction novels, in sets of seven. The titles are an eclectic assortment that will give students a variety of topics from which to choose. The books will be used as a parts of a language arts unit that will include: independent reading, book clubs, and the teacher reading aloud to students. These books also span a number of reading levels in order to meet the needs of all readers.

My students are eager, interested, and ready for our unit on historical fiction.

With your help, they will have an abundance of titles from which to choose, share, and fall in love with.
