R is for Rosie the Riveter: Working Women on the Home Front in World War II

Product Description
Meet Rosie the Riveter from A to Z! But this nonfiction informational text is not your toddler's alphabet book!

When millions of troops went to the battle front during World War II, millions of women stepped up to help win the war on the home front. They built ships, tanks, and airplanes. They worked in offices, mills, factories, and government buildings. They were welders, electricians, mechanics, riveters, clerks, and taxi drivers. Together, they became known as the iconic "Rosie the Riveter."

Introduce your students to World War II on the home front, and especially those millions of extraordinary, patriotic "We Can Do It!" women as you use this informational text in a fun alphabet format. Brief four-line rhymes give basic information for class read-alouds, while additional information is given on every page for deeper research. From A is for Airplane, to L is for Liberty Ship, to N is for Nylon Stockings, to W is for Welder, students will discover in bite-size portions the tremendous way these women on the home front supported the troops.

Written by a "real live" Rosie the Riveter and an elementary school librarian, this resource supports ELA and Social Studies standards, and provides first-hand research material - in other words, it's a must for classrooms and school libraries!

And look for the free companion download in my Nell Branum Store, entitled "R is for Rosie the Riveter Word Search Printables"!
