I featured my favorite gifted item to @Annie1215 as part of the #HauntedHollowSwap. So, I figured I should feature my favorite from the #BasicWitchSwap, too!

I found this handmade, ceramic Smudge/Incense Dish from WildFireApothecary on Etsy for @mklong & fell in love with its natural design. 🌘🦋🌒

mklong It is truly gorgeous! I already lit the palo santo to clear the space and will light the smudge later tonight! It‘s also ridiculous how much I love the little match jar! 3mo
monalyisha @mklong So stinkin‘ cute. 😉 3mo

Five stars for Nostalgia

When my library's Summer Reading Challenge gave me the choice of reading Stellaluna or make a puppet. I choose one of my favorite childhood books. It was a nice trip down memory lane.

“Stellaluna”, mf, is by Janell Cannon and has won a Keystone to Reading award. A read aloud will create a great experience for students with this book. Stellaluna is a little baby fruit bat who is separated from her mother very young. After finding a nest, she is adopted by the mama bird and is raised like a bird! But one day, she is reunited with her bat mother! This book touches on family dynamics and relationship themes.

amandar This website, https://www.varsitytutors.com/englishteacher/stellaluna-lesson-plans , provides great lesson plans ideas, each with a different focus. UDL 3.2 and ESOL strategy 15 best apply as they emphasize key ideas to students. #UCFLAE3414SP20 2y

DrSpalding This particular author selects animals that people don‘t usually like and creates stories that encourage you to better understand them. Excellent book selection. Expand on your universal design and English learner strategies a bit more. With your resource, what lesson would you want to include in your future classroom? 2y

@SumisBooks I‘m sorry to hear about your loss. In Oct. our little black Chihuahua died after 8 yrs. w/ us which wasn‘t long enough. We‘re still having a difficult time dealing with not having Stellaluna around to make us laugh & welcome us home with her loud barking but it has gotten easier.
Captain & Caprica miss her too but have loved the extra attention!
Wishing you lots of comfort from your happy memories at this time.

Stellaluna is a F picture book written and illustrated by Jane Cannon. This book tells the story of a young bat named Stellaluna who gets separated from her mother and ends up growing up with birds instead of bats. This book would be great for a RA and to incorporating multiple subjects into a lesson. I like the idea of having students learn about bats and birds and doing a comparison and contrast graphic organizer.

Mwinship This website includes ideas to include Stellaluna into multiple subjects: http://www.storytellingworld.com/Books/StellaPacket.pdf
The EL strategy 7 and UDL guideline 1.1 about using graphic organizers and customizing the display of information go along with this book and activity I would like to do. #UCFLAE3414F19

DrSpalding You have the authors name incorrect in your post. Cannon is known for writing books about animals that people may not like. Stellaluna is my favorite. 2y

This is a cute story about a fruit bar that loses its way when He and his mother are attacked by an hour. Do you survive, he lived in a Birds nest with a bunch of other baby birds. He had to adapt and live like a bird does. He noticed that he never fit in and eventually found other bats and found his mother again. He wanted to show the other baby birds so they went flying at night and he ended up rescuing them.

Yay! It's bat appreciation day! Bats are such fascinating animals, and so beneficial! The two pictures are of the little brown bat and the big brown bat. Not the most original names, but they are the most common bats in my part of Ohio. April 17th is roughly when bats start waking up from hibernation. Stellaluna might be the cutest bat childrens book ever.

JoScho Stellaluna is a great one 🖤 4y

Stellaluna by Janell Cannon. Genre: F, Awards: American bestsellers book of the year 1994, ABBY award, California young reader award, Keystone to reading book award, Reading rainbow feature book, Southern California council on literature for young people award, TS: RA, SR. For shared reading, since it has a lot of bat facts, students can point out main ideas in text. #UCFLAE3414SP18

Jeffersleighann This book is about a bat that looses its mom and gets taken care of by a bird and baby birds. Eventually Stellaluna finds her way home but she learns a major lesson about her and her bird family. This book has to do with science and diversity. 4y
Jeffersleighann EL 8. Use direct instruction: Modeling, explaining, scaffolding, name the strategy and show how to use it. 4y

This fiction book is about a young bat that gets separated from her mother when she is knocked out of her mothers safe embrace by an owl. She is then raised by mother bird. She grows up and eventually finds her way back to her family. It won the Indies Choice Book Award. I would have my students partner read this book so they can talk about the book together. The UDL I would use is 8.3 foster collaboration and community.

Samantha.K The ESOL strategy I would use is 45 use Venn Diagrams to contrast and compare. https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Stellaluna-Venn-Diagram-and-Compare-... this link takes you to a lesson plan that has the students compare and contrast bats and birds. #ucflae3414f17 4y
Floribelg This book made me think a little about Quackers shared in class. How the duck was raised from a different animal. I would also use a KWL to see what they know about the animals before reading just to spike their interest. 4y
ashley.v I used to love this book. I still do. I think it is also a good book to read to adopted and foster children. 4y

Samantha.K That‘s a great idea. Reading it to adopted and foster children could help them during that time in their life. 4y
KayleeC I loved this book!! I used to make my mom read it to me at least once a week. I agree with @Floribelg, the story does remind me of Quackers. 4y
DrSpalding What kind of fiction? Be sure to utilize publisher‘s sites and author‘s sites as well. Knowing that these are of high quality. 4y

Stellaluna - was a great book about friendship. "How can we be so different and feel so much alike?"

Take me Out of tge bathtub - is an engaging book that can be fun for students with poetry to match popular nursey rhymes.
