Read Aloud Books

As we are studying the colonial time period leading up to the Revolutionary War, we are choosing read aloud books to enhance this study. We recently tortured the boys by having them listen to Meet Felicity, an American Girl Doll book! It details the life of a nine-year old girl who lives in Williamsburg, Virginia, in 1774. They all survived the experience and learned a great deal about colonial life.

We are currently reading George Washington: The Man Who Would Not Be King by Stephen Krensky. After concluding our biography book projects, we hope to keep the students interested in reading biographies. This book details how a modest man led the American Revolution and later became our first president.
