Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder

Laura Ingalls Wilder’s classic story, Little House in the Big Woods, is a favorite of boys and girls alike, and the first in the Little House on the Prairie series. It recounts the adventures of the Ingalls family, living as pioneers in 1870’s Wisconsin. Life isn’t easy for the Ingalls family; Pa must shoot deer or catch other food to last the cold winter. Ma must harvest the garden, churn butter, and make maple sugar. The family makes the best of every tough situation and grow in love in their log cabin where every night, safe and warm, the sound of Pa’s fiddle lulls Laura and her sisters to sleep. Use Little House in the Big Woods Super Pack to help students read closely, make accurate inferences, and use specific textual evidence to determine the author’s purpose for writing the story.
