Product Description

All of these books are simply amazing! I fell in love with them instantly and my third graders fell in love with books and reading with these special books. We did a variety of activities with them. Purchase early as I plan on adding more biographies as a growing bundle. This unit is best for 2nd-4th grades, but the books do lend themselves to other grades too!

Biographies included

•David Bowie

•Jane Goodall

•Marie Curie

•Stephen Hawking

•Amelia Earhart

•Anne Frank

•Josephine Baker

  • 1. Teacher Read Aloud—students listen and gain comprehension of the story with modeled, fluent and expressive reading.
  • 2. We practiced our sentences by answering questions about the story. On the document camera, together we came up with KEY WORDS to help them with their complete sentences.
  • 3. A classroom center was created were I printed out some QR Codes for the students to use who wanted to learn more about these incredible life stories.
  • 4. Fluency practice. I found the text was just the right level for my third graders. We used ipads to record ourselves reading these incredible stories.! Students can do Readers' Theater to strengthen their reading fluency.
  • 5. More fluency practice was done as readers’ theatre—an always enjoyable activity!
  • 6. These books would lend themselves beautifully to Literature Circles.
