Narrative Nonfiction Book Companion BUNDLE

July 19, 2020 No Comments




This narrative nonfiction book companion BUNDLE features 12 complete lessons that include objectives, learning targets, discussion cards, DIGITAL and PRINTABLE graphic organizers for every lesson, and Google Form™ exit tickets for every lesson. I have taught all of these lessons successfully and have found that my students LOVE learning about the feats and challenges real people face. The people featured in the stories are Rosa Parks, Wilma Rudolph, Marcenia Lyle, Marie Tharp, Jane Addams, Martin Luther Ling, Jr., Philippe Petit, Ada Rios and the Recycled Orchestra of Cateura, and Mae Jemison.

You may choose to teach these lessons over the course of a few weeks in one unit or space them out throughout the year to correspond with Patriot Day (September 11th), the anniversary of the Montgomery Bus Boycott (December 5th), the observance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday in January, Black History Month in February, Women’s History Month in March, Earth Day in April, and National Space Day in May. I sincerely hope you and your students enjoy these lessons and activities as much as my students and I have over the years!


Currently, I teach fifth grade and have taught fifth grade since 2011. Before teaching fifth grade, I taught third grade, first grade, kindergarten, preschool, baby and toddler music, college, and graduate school. I am a mom of two daughters, a Maltese dog, and a tuxedo cat.
