A great book to add in for social studies or balanced literacy activities! This leveled reader will allow your students to learn more about the life of former South African President Nelson Mandela. It is written for grades 4th-6th reading level but can be used with younger grades for advanced readers and also for 7th and 8th graders depending on reading ability.
Nelson Mandela was a civil rights activist who fought against apartheid in South Africa for many years. He is held in deep respect throughout South Africa where he is often referred to as “the father of the nation”. He is also honored throughout the world for his lessons of patience, love, and tolerance.
This book comes with four accompanying worksheets which reinforce literacy skills involving reading, language, spelling, and writing. Specific concepts, skills, and vocabulary targeted in the book are listed on the first page of the book.
This is one of the readers in my original series of leveled books which I have written to incorporate the Fountas and Pinnell leveled vocabulary, Rebecca Sitton spelling words, and common core curriculum standards for grades K-6 in the United States.
