5th grade presentation: March

The theme for March is books published before or shortly after 1900 (up to about 1910). There are several ways to find these classic books!

- We have a selection of about 15 titles in the school library for students to borrow

- The database ProQuest Learning: Literature has full-text access to tens of thousands of literary works including many full-length novels which may be read on your e-reader or home computer (login information is available on my Sharepoint page under Shared Documents)

The public library has a selected list of
classics for teens and elementary students (check date of original publication - some are modern classics!)

Of course, you can always ask a friend or relative for a recommendation! One of my personal favorites from this time period is The Princess and the Goblin by George MacDonald.
