A Newbery Honor recipient, The Courage of Sarah Noble is a quick Read Aloud that pairs well with students also studying the Native Americans and colonization of the Americas.
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! The activity mats can be used again and again if laminated.
Read the entire story, reference the quotes from the Teacher's Guide taken directly from the text, and talk about the story while reviewing compound sentences. Use this in Literature Circles, as Extra Credit, as Homework, or in your Emergency Substitute File.
