Our third grade does a Pioneer Unit every year, and every student in third grade reads (or is read) "Little House in the Big Woods" by Laura Ingalls Wilder. While we have enough books for several classes to use at the same time, we need about 45 more. Having all of the students enjoying the book at the same time would help everyone to best learn from and enjoy the other Pioneer activities we do. Presently, some students are waiting their turn to read the book or have read it several weeks before when we do the bulk of the unit, which decreases their enthusiasm. No other book compares to "Little House" in relaying pioneer life and the life of children during that time at a reading level from which third graders can successfully learn. As we strive to teach our third graders about people in different time periods, as well as learn to appreciate great literature, we have found "Little House In the Big Woods" to be a vital part of our Pioneer Unit.
