PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In fewer than 100 pages, Sarah, Plain and Tall by Patricia MacLaghlan tells the story of a widower who puts an advertisement in the newspaper for a wife and mother for his children. Sarah Elizabeth Wheaten, plain and tall, arrives in her yellow bonnet for a month to meet the family and decide whether or not she will marry Jacob Whitting and become Anna and Caleb's mother. Life in Maine is very different from life on the prairie, and Sarah struggles with the adjustment.

Review coordinating conjunctions and sentence structure after you read this novel with your fourth graders. Students work in pairs or small groups to make sense of the relationship between two independent clauses and choose an appropiate coordinating conjunction (AND, BUT, FOR, OR, SO). If you didn't think teaching grammar could be fun, try this!

Use this in Literature Circles, as Extra Credit, as Homework, or in your Emergency Substitute File.
