Welcome to book club with American Girl Samantha Parkington. Of all the books I read as a child, American Girl books are my favorite! I'm very excited to share these stories with another generation of children! We will read 6 books entitled: 1) Meet Samantha, 2) Samantha Learns a Lesson, 3) Samantha's Surprise, 4) Happy Birthday, Samantha, 5) Samantha Saves the Day, and 6) Changes for Samantha. These books are written by: Susan S. Adler, Maxine Rose Schur, and Valerie Tripp Illustrated by:...
Students will spend time reading on their own. Together we will answer comprehension questions, compare Samantha's life to our own lives, learn and practice using vocabulary words from the book, and discuss elements of the story like plot (creating plot diagrams), characters, setting, conflict, and resolution.
Reading a book a week. These books are short chapter books (in my publication about 60 pages each with large print). It is acceptable for learners to read the books independently, listen to them read aloud, or take turns reading aloud with a partner or adult.
Learners will need their own copies of all 6 of Samantha's stories. This can be purchased or borrowed in two formats: bound together as "Samantha's Story Collection" or independently as 6 separately bound books entitled: "Meet Samantha," "Samantha Learns a Lesson," "Samantha's Surprise," "Happy Birthday, Samantha," "Samantha Saves the Day," and "Changes for Samantha." These books are written by: Susan S. Adler, Maxine Rose Schur, and Valerie Tripp Illustrated by: Dan Andreasen
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Samantha is an orphan. Her parents have died before the first book begins, however, she does tell about how they died (drowned when their boat was in a rocky area of the lake during a storm). She does not go into any graphic details. One of Samantha's friends, Nellie (and her sisters), also ends up being an orphan. Her parents are alive in the first 5 books. They die between the 5th and 6th books and then Nellie and her sisters become orphans. They end up in an orphanage where they are not treated well. All stories have happy endings.
