Hi all! This is a novel study that I have created for teachers that love differentiated and varied lessons and activities for their students. I really enjoyed finding a new read aloud text for my 5th grade students, and Stealing Freedom by Elisa Carbone is perfect! The novel study features student activities, example anchor charts, anticipatory sets, and varied lesson plans with 30 different reading and writing strategies for the text. The novel study addresses the following skills: reading comprehension, inferences, character traits, summarizing, before-, during-, and after-reading activities, friendly letter writing, and extended-constructed response opportunities. There are also activities that focus on writing, grammar, and mechanics. There are also word wall vocabulary words included in this novel study.
This novel is great for cross-curricular connections. The story is about a young slave whose family is ripped away from her due to slave trade in the mid-1800s. Ann Maria’s whole world is changed when her brothers, sister, and parents are sold away from her. Ann Maria is left alone, but she meets a young boy who makes her life feel happy and full again. Ann also learns to read which was against the law in the 1800s. Read this text to find out if Ann’s journey on the Underground Railroad ends in freedom or not.
I really loved this book! The novel is based on a true story which is great for cross-curricular connections about slavery, slave trade, abolition, and freedom!
