Books Teachers Love: January Books

Hey friends! Another edition of Books Teachers Love is here!
Is this your first time? Check out our past posts!
The story is about a little girl name Connie confused why she has to eat standing up, drink different water fountains, and use different bathrooms. Signs all around her town tell her that she must follow these rules.
Connie witnesses four boys take a stand for equal rights at Woolworth’s lunch counter in Greensboro, North Carolina. The event sparks a movement through her town and helps her brother and sister make signs to picket.
In the end, Connie witnesses monumental events that spark a movement and change for equal rights.
The Greensboro Four took a stand by sitting down.
I am going to give my kids this multiple choice comprehension quiz.


I created a reading passage to help explain the Greensboro Sit-Ins.
Kids will read and respond.



I also created this mini-web quest!
The kids will scan the QR code and watch videos about the sit-ins.
I found videos that showed them reporting it on the news at that time, in addition to interviews from witnesses!
I plan on also completing a series of comprehension flaps.
If you would like the flap below for free….
