Total Language Plus AND My History Plans

Today, I wanted to make a suggestion of a great way to add Language Arts to my History Plans.  Total Language Plus.  You can see their website here: http://site.totallanguageplus.com/the-program/novel-groupings/  They have books for third through twelfth grades.

Here's some ideas for breaking them up by time period:

Ancients:

1. The Bronze Bow

Middle Ages:

1. The Whipping Boy
2. Adam of the Road
3. The Door in the Wall
4. Crispin: The Cross of Lead
5. The Trumpeter of Krakow

Early American History (with some world history suggestions from the same period):

1. The Courage of Sarah Noble
2. The Witch at Blackbird Pond
3. Johnny Tremain
4. Amos Fortune, Free Man
5. The Sign of the Beaver
6. Ben and Me
7. Carry on, Mr. Bowditch
8. The Light in the Forest
9. The Call of the Wild
10. Treasure Island
11. Jane Eyre
12. The Scarlet Letter
13. Pride and Prejudice
14. Oliver Twist

Modern History:

1. Shiloh
2. Charlotte's Web
3. Caddie Woodlawn
4. The Cricket in Times Square
5. My Side of the Mountain
6. Where the Red Fern Grows
7. Rifles for Watie
8. Words by Heart
9. The Hiding Place
10. Lord of the Flies

This is not ALL of the TLP selections but it is many of them.  I have not read all of their selections at this point, so some were left out because I was unsure where to put them.  There are also many that would be fun to read during a Geography year such as Around the World in 80 Days.
