Women’s History is a topic that I am really passionate about because I come from a family of many strong females. I was raised to ignore traditional gender roles and I’m raising my daughter the same way. This has led to me being a huge women’s rights advocate. If this is a topic you’d love to bring to your classroom, I’ve compiled a list of children’s books that focus on women’s history. All would make excellent 2nd grade read alouds!
When to Weave Women’s History into 2nd Grade Read Alouds
Right after recess is my favorite time to do read alouds. It’s such a nice settling-in activity going from hectic playground behavior to calmer classroom behavior.
A great time of year to focus on this topic is in March for Women’s History month! But, I truly believe that this is an important concept to sprinkle in all year long. When you share your love for reading and your passion for an empowering topic like how inspiring and strong women have influenced the world, you will model so much more than just fluent reading!
