Women's History Month Linky - and a {FREEBIE}

Being a Georgia teacher, Susan B. Anthony is one of our historical figures for Social Studies in 3rd grade. My kids this year were really interested in her life story.

When we're all teaching the same person at the same time, using the books we have available at school can get a little tricky. I tend to get a little Amazon "click-happy" --- anybody with me?

Here are a few of our favorite Amazon finds for Susan B. Anthony:



Deborah Hopkinson is one of my favorite non-fiction authors. She writes fantastic historical fiction and factual history books. I love the way she writes about women who helped shape our history and the strong female characters she creates for her picture books and Dear America novels.




This was probably my favorite purchase. I have a w-i-d-e range of readers in my classroom this year (who doesn't?) and this text made the information accessible to everyone! 


This last text was the best option for my advanced readers. I actually ordered a guided reading set of these and we had a great time "digging deep" and talking about what an incredible woman Susan B. Anthony really was.
I used it as a read-aloud with my inclusion class last year, and that worked well too. When I presented it that way, we created a K-W-L chart that we filled out as we read. It was a great anchor for the kiddos as we completed our unit for Social Studies. 

Finally, I retooled and relisted an old freebie that I'll be using with my kiddos this month. We'll be in St. Patrick's Day mode this week, but I thought this is something you might want to put in your files for the weeks ahead. :)

How cute is that graphic from Melonheadz? I love it!! 

I hope this finds you ready for the week ahead. I'll be back later this week with some ideas for teaching conjunctions, a few anchor charts to share, and (hopefully) another freebie for you!

If you have any great resources for Women's History Month, I'd love for you to link up with a post! It can be anything - products, freebies, books, poems, teaching tips, whatever! I'll leave it open for the rest of the month!

  1. Thanks for the freebie!

    I LOVE celebrating Women's History month - it's a perfect transition after practicing our biography skills with Black History month. In my classroom, we read and analyze a lot of biographies in February and then get to try our hand at writing biographies during March for Women's History Month. I can't wait to get started!

    Thanks for starting the linky party - I'm honored the be the first one to join :)

    I stumbled onto your blog - and am so glad that I did!
