This is another lovely story I read with my 4th grade several years back. It was an EFL class, but I was teaching by “associative” learning at the time. I hoped that if I inundated them enough, they would catch on.
Patricia weaves tales that bring you into her life and her time. Her stories often tell of her family; Russian/ American immigrants in the early 20th century. Her life is rich with memory and lush detail. I hope these story pages will help the kids discover the language inside.

If you need the WORD doc, email me. It does meet Common Core Language standards. I listed a range instead of every single one. Please review the work. If you have concerns, contact me first. Thank you.
