It discusses many important historical events or people unique to North Carolina in addition to geographical differences and important places. In this book, students learn about the Lost Colony, Kill Devil Hill and the Wright brothers, the Biltmore estate, many of our state symbols, and popular areas of living and visiting all across the state. It helps students learn about North Carolina in a visual way with its illustrations and short paragraphs to keep students interested throughout. Literacy: Begin by telling students that they are going to learn about the state of North Carolina in detail over the next couple of weeks. Have students write down one thing that they think is special about the state and why they think it is important. Have them write just a few sentences. When completed, call on a few students to read their answers. Once finished, gather students to the carpet for a read-aloud of T Is For Tarheel. Social Studies: In the fourth grade, students learn about their state. Have students create their own North Carolina A-Z book. Guide and help students to choose topics for each letter that are appropriate, relevant, and are considered “special” to North Carolina. They can use books, encyclopedias, the Internet, textbooks, or any other source. Students can discuss historical figures from North Carolina, state symbols, places within the state, or even important people in today’s society from or currently working in NC. For each letter, students will write a paragraph or two explaining the significance of what they chose to our state and include a picture. Once students are finished, they have their own A-Z book on our great state. T Is For Tarheel was a WOW book for me because it reminds me so much of why I love the state I live in. We have diversity everywhere-in our cultures, our people, our geography, our history, and in our present. T Is For Tarheel celebrates all of the differences that make us North Carolinians, and that is something that students should be a part of as well.

    "T is for Tar Heel" is a informational poem all about the state of North Carolina. The structure of the poem goes through the entire alphabet, and for each letter, it talks about something in North Carolina. Alongside the poem's verses, each page has a short informational summary about the topic the poem is focusing on. For examples: "A is for the Appalachian Mountains..." on the other side of the page, it discusses facts about the Appalachian Mountains!

For examples: "A is for the Appalachian Mountains..." on the other side of the page, it discusses facts about the Appalachian Mountains! I chose to review this book because I have grown up in North Carolina almost all my life and I loved reading about NC's history, landmarks, and symbols in a creative but information- PACKED poem! I would specifically use this book with 4th grade students in North Carolina because 4th grade is when students learn about state history! Reading this book would be SUCH a great way integrate both ELA and Social Studies history! In a classroom, I would use this book during a state history unit. I would begin the unit by reading this poem as a read aloud. I would make sure to read both the verses in the poem and the informational paragraphs on each page. Once I finish reading the book, I would have each student choose ONE North Carolina topic the poem discussed and do an individual research-based activity with it! Another idea I have is using this book during ELA. After reading the poem and teaching/ discussing the characteristics of a poem, I could have students create their own "A is for... B is for..." book based on either 1) their life (as a "getting to know us" activity) or 2) Another unit we have finished learning about in class. (depending on how formal I wanted to make the assignment). This book is a WOW book to me because I just love how this incorporates BOTH ELA and Social Studies standards. I also love how while I was reading the book, most places discussed in North Carolina, I have been myself! This way, I would even be able to have discussions with students about my opinions on the places I have visited in North Carolina.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This book it great! It could be used as an informational text about our state. Any grade could use this book. It has a lot of information about North Carolina for older students, and for younger, there are single sentences that could be read along with the pictures instead of the whole description blurb "E is for Eastern box turtle, the official reptile of our state. Moving about with a house on his back, he doesn't care if he's late!" As an e-book this does not look as good as Jacob's new dress This book it great!

Moving about with a house on his back, he doesn't care if he's late!" As an e-book this does not look as good as Jacob's new dress because you cannot see the text and illustration at the same time, so this book would be better read in print. This book has "sticky questions" at the end that can be used to assess reading comprehension and teach about the state of North Carolina. A whole unit could be done with this book exploring 1-3 things from the book a day.

    Do you study North Carolina this year? This is a great book to find some fun facts about our state of North Carolina. From A for the Appalachian Mouontains to Z for Zoom-Zoom-Zoo. Each letter provides an informational tidbit about the state. For instance: The letter F is for the Eastern Box Turtle official reptile of our state, Moving about with a house on his back he doesn't care if he is late!

    Another gift from my kiddos (I have 110 kids, they needed two books for all of them to leave their notes). If I do lose my job, it will be a wonderful reminder of my time in NC. If not, it will be a wonderful reminder of the impact my students have had on me. (P.S. I love this series!!)
