   Perfect for biography reading lesson and report writing in 3rd/4th gr
The third-grade teacher gave them to her students for Christmas. Great for the biography genre and then to use for report writing, Morgenthau said. The three years I've used them, I'm not ashamed. Easy for their reading levels, informative and people they have heard of in their lives, it's just that. Had they not left these books out, they would have been reading them.
