When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit
By: Judith Kerr
Now and Ben
By: Gene Barretta
Writing in the Workplace
When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit is a children's novel, by Judith Kerr, first published in 1971. It is a semi-autobiographical story of a young Jewish girl who is forced to flee her home in Germany in 1933 with her family to escape the Nazis, whom her father, a writer, had campaigned against. The family escaped through Switzerland, spent some time in Paris, before finally arriving in England in 1936.
What would you do if you lived in a community without a library, hospital, post office, or fire department? If you were Benjamin Franklin, you’d set up these organizations yourself. Franklin also designed the lightning rod, suggested the idea of daylight saving time, invented bifocals and the odometer all inspired by his common sense and intelligence.
This historical fiction book would be for perfect for Sam because he is reading at a Level N and this book’s readability is for second graders. This book talks about all the important creations that Ben Franklin came up with in time era.
Boxes for Katje
By: Candance Fleming
After World War II there is little left in Katje's town of Olst in Holland. Her family, like most Dutch families, must patch their old worn clothing and go without everyday things like soap and milk. Then one spring morning when the tulips bloom "thick and bright," Postman Kleinhoonte pedals his bicycle down Katje's street to deliver a mysterious box – a box from America! Full of soap, socks, and chocolate, the box has been sent by Rosie, an American girl from Mayfield, Indiana. Her package is part of a goodwill effort to help the people of Europe. What's inside so delights Katje that she sends off a letter of thanks – beginning an exchange that swells with so many surprises that the girls, as well as their townspeople, will never be the same.
This inspiring story, with strikingly original art, is based on the author's mother's childhood and will show young readers that they, too,
can make a difference.
Boxes for Katje is a 2004 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
This historical fiction book would be great for Traiska simply because it is on a second grade readability and level. In addition the main character is from Holland, so she can relate in being from another European young girl
It is based upon the early life of the author whose Jewish father, noted drama critic, journalist and screenwriter Alfred Kerr, was wanted by the Nazis. Kerr's family also fled their home in Berlin via Switzerland to escape to Paris and then England. She came to write the book when her own son was eight; after seeing The Sound of Music he remarked, "now we know what it was like when Mummy was a little girl". Kerr wanted him to know what it was really like and so wrote When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit. The book gives a distinctive child's perspective on the rise of Nazism in 1930s Germany and the experience of being a refugee, reflecting Kerr's positive feelings about her own experience:
Even though this book is based on a 5th grade readability I still believe that Traiska would still benefit from this book because she can easily relate with the main character in the book.
They are both young girls living in Europe.
LESSON COMPREHESION / VISUALIZATION:
• This lesson is a hands on lesson that would benefit both Sam and Traiska because they like hands on activities. First I will model and then do a guided practice on a book the class already read such as the circuit. Then I would use this worksheet ( on the bottom of page) to do the independent portion of the lesson.
This book is good for Traiska because it takes place in Russia and she is from Ukraine. Ukraine was a part of the Soviet Union and it will help her better understand the information and allow others to learn about her past.
Students will work inside of groups of four in order to complete this comprehension lesson. Students will read a chapter inside of the book Bud, Not Buddy and complete the graphic organizer that is presented in front of them.
This book relates to the five percent of Asian students in the classroom. They should be included.
Students will be given a list of words that will be discussed in further detail. Before students read a chapter where they may not know every word, it is important to have them introduced to these words before they read. In order to accomplish this, students will be placed into groups of four. Using a PowerPoint, the teacher will place a word on a slide and students will discuss what they think it means and write it down on a worksheet. After they guess what the word means, a sentence or two will be provided in order to provide context clues for the vocabulary word. After seeing this the group will discuss what they think it means and write down a tentative definition. The teacher will go from slide to slide until all the words are done, and at the end the teacher will give the real definition to be copied down.
Text Complexity Analysis
Holes would be a great book for Eduardo because it is all about teamwork and helping one another out. There are many examples in the book of getting work done together, and the moral of the story is that helping someone can really go a long way and can affect them in ways you may never know. Eduardo could take away many things from this book, including teamwork and with a little help from a friend anything is possible.
Stanley Yelnats is a kid who is under a curse, who has been unjustly sent to a boys' detention center. Camp Green Lake is where the warden makes the boys "build character" by spending all day, every day, digging holes five feet wide and five feet deep. It doesn't take long for Stanley to realize there's more than character improvement going on at Camp Green Lake: the warden is looking for something. Stanley tries to dig up the truth in this inventive and darkly humorous tale of crime and punishment—and redemption. He meets an unexpected friend who ends up being the last piece of his puzzle for solving a mystery that has haunted his family for centuries.
This historical novel is so rife with adventure, excitement, and courage that even the most reluctant reader will have a hard time putting it down. This book is perfect for Sam because it constantly keeps the reader guessing and making predictions about what is going to happen next. Sam will enjoy reading this book because not only will it help him with reading, it will make him want to read more books just like this.
During the Revolutionary War, thirteen-year-old Hope, seized by the band of Tories who attack her Connecticut home, finds herself enslaved in a Tory household on Long Island and uses all her resources to escape from her captors and make her way home.
The Students then brainstorm all the kinds of friendly letters they might write along with the different purposes for writing letters:
• To tell about a good book they have read
• To send news about themselves
• To share what they are learning
• To give news of an upcoming event
• To provide information about their hobbies
• To reveal something that happened in school
• To share something from home
• To ask questions
• To request something
The students will be putting themselves in Buds position and they will be writing letters to his Dad. They can use any of the examples from above.
-Literacy.5c.-Pose and respond to specific questions by making comments that contribute to the discussion and elaborate on the remark of others.
CCSS.LA-Literacy.L5.4a Use context as a clue to the meaning of a word or phrase.
In this story, a girl tells the story of her Grandmama's love of baseball and of her hero, one of the greatest baseball players who ever lived. His name was Josh Gibson.
Josh Gibson was called the "black Babe Ruth", but he never played one day in Major League Baseball. He was a superstar of Negro League baseball.
I feel this particular historical fiction book could be very helpful for a student like Eudardo for many reasons. Every child has a hero or someone they may look up to as a role model. It is significant that the girls grandmother's love of baseball enabled her to chase her dreams and play like her favorite player, Babe Ruth. This could give Eudardo a sense of hope and encourages them to strive for his dreams and goals all through hard work and effort.
Just Like Josh Gibson
By: Angela Johnson
It is also very important for students to identify and comprehend sight words in a vocabulary context. In this lesson, students are to work in a small group of three to four partners. While one student in the group reads a page out loud, the rest of the group highlights any site words they may here being repeating. After, they are to discuss the words they found and why they represent sight words. They then share with the class some characteristics of sight words they have discovered in this lesson.
A wonderful middle-grade novel narrated by Kenny, 9, about his middle-class black family, the Weird Watsons of Flint, Michigan. When Kenny's 13-year-old brother, Byron, gets to be too much trouble, they head South to Birmingham to visit Grandma, the one person who can shape him up. And they happen to be in Birmingham when Grandma's church is blown up. During this time there was a lot of racial segregation and this story takes you right into the city of Birmingham.
Eduardo would benefit from this book because he is reading at a Y level in the scholastic Guided Reading which is close to a 6th grade reading level. Therefore this book is at a sixth grade level so he will be challenged a bit more which should motivate him to do his best.
It’s 1947, and 10-year-old Matty Romano is going to his first baseball game with his father to see the Brooklyn Dodgers, his favorite team. It’s also the first day for Jackie Robinson, the first Black baseball player in the major leagues. The crowd is divided between those who are outraged and those who just want to see good baseball players, no matter what their color. Matty’s conversations with his father provide an intimate look at this historic baseball game.
This book would be good for Sam simply because it about baseball and the historic events that took place during each baseball season. Sam is a hands on learner and loves hands on activity therefore I believe that he would love to read about the history of a great American Sport

Students will imagine themselves as being a part of Bud's life. The students will create their own personal narratives including how things would of changed if Bud had a partner throughout his journey. Students will be an orphan friend of Bud who is just trying to find a home. They will have to keep events similar to the time period and encounter the same struggles and experiences that Bud did.
