Course description: Come join us as we take a walk through history as seen through the eyes of young girls in the American Girls literature series. We will discover more about the time periods that are written, make a lapbook for each book series that we study, have hands on crafts and games, and celebrate the finish of each book series with a tea party. We will give parents notice in advance. The students will need to have a copy of each of the books listed for participation in class!

In Year 1 the books we will study are (please note that these are different from last year) :

Kit Kittredge (books 1-6: Meet Kit, Kit Learns a Lesson, Kit’s Surprise, Happy Birthday, Kit, Kit Saves the Day, Changes For Kit) Molly McIntire (books 1-6: Meet Molly, Molly Learns a Lesson, Molly’s Surprise, Happy Birthday, Molly!, Molly Saves the Day, Changes For Molly) Julie Albright (books 1-6: Meet Julie, Julie Learns a Lesson, Julie’s Surprise, Happy Birthday, Julie, Julie Saves the Day, Changes For Julie)

The student must have access to these books outside of class either by purchasing them or borrowing from the library as reading at home is required. It is the parents responsibility to have each book set as it is being covered. We will be covering a total of 18 books during this school year.

Please note that these are not the “Be Forever” line of books that’s now being sold on the American Girl website. You can find the original book series on Amazon.com, Half.com, or at any of the great local used book stores. They can also found at the local library and Audible.com has them for available for download to listen to.
