Number the Stars
Number the Stars | Lois Lowry
As the German troops begin their campaign to "relocate" all the Jews of Denmark, Annemarie Johansens family takes in Annemaries best friend, Ellen Rosen, and conceals her as part of the family.Through the eyes of ten-year-old Annemarie, we watch as the Danish Resistance smuggles almost the entire Jewish population of Denmark, nearly seven thousand people, across the sea to Sweden. The heroism of an entire nation reminds us that there was pride and human decency in the world even during a time of terror and war.Winner of the 1990 Newbery Medal.

The HF novel, Number the Stars by Lois Lowry, is a Newbery award winning piece of literature that would be great for grade 5. The story centers around a young girl named Annemarie Johansen and her contribution to the resistance movement in Denmark during WWII as she is faced with the knowledge that Nazis are beginning to “relocate” the Jews in her city. #UCFLAE3414F19

TristanPool This book would best be presented in a PR to encourage students to read independently and or collaboratively. UDL 7.3 and EL 2 can support a PR as students read together. 7d
TristanPool https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/number-stars-d... is a wonderful resource to use in the classroom as teachers are provided with a vocabulary list and activity to present to students who may have trouble with comprehending the book in their groups. 7d

I grew up on Anastasia, but I didn't know about this precious little book until it came up in courses I've been taking to teach reading. I wonder why it strikes me more positively than my last entry, 22 Britannia Road. It may be that I am the right age to feel a sentimental connection to a war my Grandpa served in. Either way this is very skilful storytelling, and I hope that younger children can read it and connect to this period ❤️

Number The Stars, a HF novel written by Lois Lowry and a Newbery award winner, is a great book for LC! This book is equipped with a heart wrenching story that allows students to learn about the holocaust in a more immersive way. (Cont.) #ucflae3414su19

I woke up around 6 and couldn‘t get back to sleep, so I read the next book from my stack.

What an amazing book. The idea of bravery presented here is perfect, and the way so many people did their small, but so important, parts to save their friends and neighbors is incredible. I‘m in tears. I don‘t remember reading this as a child, though I‘ve had this copy for years so I must have. I won‘t forget it this time.

A beautiful and heartfelt story that is perfect for young readers to learn about the horrors that occurred during WWII while paying homage to the courageous role the Danish Resistance played in rescuing much of Denmark‘s Jewish population from being sent to Nazi concentration camps by secretly transporting them to Sweden where they were granted asylum. I read this as a child and it has stayed with me long since. Perfect for the young reader.

Imagine what life would be like when you are ten years old in the middle of a war. Well for Annemarie in Number The Stars (HF) it‘s just that. Her and her family must escape to safety and out of harms way. This Newbury award winner is ideal for a CR so students can ask questions as they read along.

Number the Stars by Lois Lowry is such an amazing HF book and a great way to introduce history to students because it is told through the point of view of a 10 year old Jewish girl who goes undercover to live with her best friends family to protect her from the Nazis. This book won the Newbery Medal. This book highlights ESOL strategies 1, 2, 9, 16 and UDL principles 9.3 and 5.1.

karamank I think what is really amazing with this book is I instantly remembered reading it in school when I was 10 years old. This book really taught me about what the holocaust was truly like because it was told from a little girls perspective. I remember visualizing the story as the little girl told it because her emotions were so real. I felt as if I was there! 7mo
karamank Some great activities for this story are located here: https://www.rif.org/literacy-central/book/number-stars In my classroom, I would have many group discussions as we read the book as a class. I think it is very important students understand how the world once was compared to how it is today. I think it would be really interesting to hear their thoughts on this topic while reading the story. It would make a great SR. #lae3414sp19 (edited) 7mo

This biography novel won the John Newberry award. I would use this book for a literature circle to allow discussion between students. Anne-Marie Johansen is 10 years old and her best friend is Ellen Rosen. They live in Copenhagen in 1943 and their lives are filled to school, food shortages, and Nazi soldiers marching through town. When the Jews of Denmark are relocated, Ellen moves in with the Johansson‘s and pretends to be part of the family.

SofiaRoselli The lesson plan I found includes great objectives, discussion topics, literary devices, standards, and a story summary. I would use ESOL strategy 2, promote cooperation, by having the students get into groups for literature circles. The discussion topics from my website would help foster great discussion among students and help with their understanding of the book. 7mo
SofiaRoselli UDL strategy 8.3, foster collaboration and community, would also come from placing students in small literature circles.

Lois Lowry “Number the Stars” (HF) is a Newberry Award winner book. This book is told through the eyes of a ten-year-old girl name Annemarie. Her family decides to hide her best friend Ellen and disguise her as part of the family. It is important for Annemarie and her family to do everything they can to keep Ellen hidden and safe. This book is based during World War II when the Danish were smuggling the Jews across to Sweden. #lae3414sp19

KAdudu I think this book would be great for LC in the classroom allowing students to read and share important events/details in the text. #lae3414sp19

Lois Lowry's "Number the Stars" is a historical fiction (HF) novel suitable for readers that may be teenagers or young adults, due to its mature content about the Holocaust. "Number the Stars" could be used for a literature circle (LC), or during independent reading (IR) sessions. "Number the Stars" takes place during WWII as the Holocaust began occurring. As German troops begin to relocate all of the Jewish citizens of Denmark, a young girl

caldwellalex95 named Annemarie Johansen and her family take in Annemarie's best friend, Ellen Rosen, and pretend she is a part of the family. Readers discover how the Danish Resistance smuggle almost the entire Jewish population of Denmark across the sea to Sweden. Scholastic provides a KWL activity for students to complete, as theh fill in what they know about the Holocaust, what they think they know, and what they learned. "Number the Stars" provides a 7mo
caldwellalex95 wonderful opportunity for teachers to introduce the topic of WWII and the Holocaust to their students. This lesson plan was created for students in grade 6-8. It is incredibly crucial for students to gain an understanding of history, and what happened during WWII. "Number the Stars" will give insight to its readers, as it places a new perspective on what life was like during the invasion that took place overseas decades ago. This KWL activity 7mo
caldwellalex95 incorporates ESOL strategy #50 and UDL's comprehension strategy (3.4). "Number the Stars" is an eye-opening story that everyone should take the time to read. I have always been interested in reading stories about the Holocaust because it makes me appreciate my freedom and all that I have. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the Holocaust, or somebody who is curious about learning what others had to do to survive the devastation. 7mo

Number the Stars by Lois Lowry (HF, Newbery, and IR) is a novel about a girl who realizes what is beginning to happen during World War II. This is definitely for upper elementary students, but I believe that all elementary schoolers should be exposed to this kind of literature. It is truly impactful. It encompasses UDL Principles 3.1: Activate or supply background knowledge and 9.2: Facilitate personal coping skills and strategies. #LAE3414sp19

This HF novel is a Newbery award winner written by Lois Lowry. Told from the point of view of a young girl, readers will experience the hardships of growing up in the time during the Holocaust. This book could be used for a PR or book club to encourage students to read independently and build community. This lesson (http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/book-clubs-readin...) explains this idea well.

What a delightful read. I understand why this is a beloved classic of literature for children. It's sensible and informative, while mantaining some of the greatest tropes for children: family, adventure, bravery, and, above all, raw emotion! I also learned about Denmark during the Nazi occupation, something I knew very little about. Recommended to holocaust/WWII fiction fans.

Listened to an elementary favorite this week. Historical fiction isn‘t my typical interest so I was curious if I‘d like it as much as I remembered liking it. I did! #loislowry #bookworm #numberthestars #readingplanner
