The Sign of the Beaver

My students need new "The Sign of the Beaver" book. The ones we have are falling apart from so much use.

My Students

We live on a rural reservation in Northeast Montana. The opportunity for hands-on learning is key as most resources are extremely far away. Most students live and work on a farm so they are used to learning by doing. I would like to provide that opportunity in the classroom.

Reading and comprehension are so vital to success in school.

We are beginning a project next year that will provide additional support to those students who may struggle with reading, literacy and phonics.

My Project

Students love reading and studying The Sign of the Beaver. The copies we currently have are falling apart. Students read and reread this book, even after our book study unit is completed.

The Sign of the Beaver is a favorite among students.

It is a book students connect with and are excited about reading. Finding a book that speaks and engages students like this book does, is hard to do. Since students enjoy this book, continued use as a novel unit is important.

Students are engaged and excited about reading this novel every year and are able to connect to it more than others.
