Quantity of Titles Per Set (30 Titles)
A set of 30 titles of highly curated read alouds including nonfiction, authentic voices and diverse characters. This fourth grade set features first and third person narratives, authentic poetry and mythology. There are several short and yet meaty picture books that can serve as a springboard for deeper discussions in class. Female and male protagonists share an equal representation. This selection will help students develop empathy for moving, loss and the fight against discrimination.
From our Lead Curator, Marie:
Identifying the theme is a challenging skill to develop in fourth grade. I paired several books so that teachers can model determining the theme with one text, and have students practice with another text such as La gaceta de Landry and Siete reporteros y un periodico. With informational read alouds, teachers can work on identifying with main idea with Nacer and Nacimientos bestiales. In nonfiction, help students draw inferences with texts such as Desde el origen del cambio climático hasta ahora, Plasticus maritimus and Ecos verdes. Students can compare and contrast first and secondhand accounts using El lápiz mágico de Malala and People Power.
