The Secret Soldier by Ann McGovern

We are getting ready to do our unit on the American Revolution.  As part of our studies, we will learn the various roles Virginians played.  I was inspired by a post on http://4theloveofteaching.blogspot.com/ about how she uses The Secret Soldier for read aloud and literature circles.  I've thought about using this book, but haven't gotten around to it. 

So I popped on down to Teachers pay Teachers to have a look at some of the things teachers are doing with this book.  It just so happens that the first thing I found was a freebie, and it fit my literature circle needs perfectly!  Go check it out for yourself:  http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Secret-Soldier-by-Ann-McGovern.  You might have to create an account if you haven't already, but it's free and totally worth it.

While I'm on the subject, http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/ is a gold mine!  Many of the lessons and activities on this site are free or incredibly cheap.
