What a wonderful read! Tissues required! Who doesn‘t love a book that is narrated by a tree?

A sweet story about loving your neighbor and taking action in the face of injustice. Red is our narrator, a 216-year-old raggy tree; the community ties wishes to Red's branches once a year. Interesting nature facts/vocabulary are casually woven into this beautiful narrative. I would have liked this to be a tad longer so the friendship between Stephen and Samar could be fleshed out more, but I otherwise really enjoyed this gentle tale.

This was a very interesting MF novel by Katherine Appelgate. It not only teaches a lot of great and valuable lessons but I would definitely use this as a LC. The UDL I would use towards this is 7.2 by giving on-topic questions for the groups to discuss. The ESOL strategies I would reference is 1 to see that questions are being asked event to our peers for understanding. #UCFLAE3414F19

Wishtree by Katherine Applegate is a great MF to be used as a RA or IR. It is about a tree named Red who can talk. He has been alive for 216 rings and seen a lot. When the word LEAVE was carved into his truck it brought on a lot of conflict in the community. #UCFLAE3414F19

AleciaM I would use this book as a read aloud. It is a great opportunity to have story time. Perfect bool to talk about predicting in a story. UDL for this book is 3.2 highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationship. ESOL for this book is 2 promote cooperation (small group) and 22 give enough wait time for second language learners to respond to questions.

This MF novel by Newbery Medal-winning author, Katherine Applegate, is about a tree named Red who has been around for hundreds of years and had many habitants living in him/her. People come to this tree to wish for something. One day, someone writes something mean on the tree which causes further conflict in the novel. This book is good for a LC. https://www.plt.org/recommended-reading/wishtree/ This website contains a lesson plan that involves

leximcmillin vocabulary and observation and inferences based on the book. It even includes a an activity in which students can create their own ending to the book. A UDL strategy that aligns with this book is 3.3 Guide information processing and visualization. An EL strategy that aligns with this book would be 10. Teach think, pair, share strategies in cooperative groups. This way, students can talk about what they think is going on in the book with eachother. 1mo

I truly liked this book by Katherine Applegate. I think this book is great for literature circles. It was an easy read. I will say that it was easy to predict what would happen but it also made you want to continue reading it so that you could see if you were right in your predictions. I think this book touched on a delicate subject of not accepting someone because of something someone else did. #ucflae3414f19

kradebaugh The UDL's I chose are 2.1 Clarify vocabulary and symbols and 3.1 Activate or supply background knowledge. ESOL Teach questioning for clarification and Use preview and review activities. 1mo

#BristolthePistol and I read 36 chapters of #wishtree by Katherine Applegate yesterday to finish this book! It had such a wonderful message and we loved it so much! We thought the story line was excellent and how it‘s important to believe in yourself and also be kind and caring towards others even if they don‘t share the same beliefs. Wishes really can come true! Excellently written and we thought the names of all the characters were cute also!

This F, written and illustrated by Katherine Applegate, would be perfect for a LC. When a Muslim family moves in across from a wishtree named Red, something terrible happens. Now, Red faces the problem of being cut down and all the animals could lose their homes. In this novel, the characters hope for something better to come along and save the day. Will it? #UCFLAE3414F19

JRone UDL strategy 3.3, guide information processing and visualization are helpful to children when they need to create mental images to guide their thinking and help with comprehension. EL strategy #9, teach notetaking strategies: T-charts, timelines, etc., will help children keep track of what goes on in the book as they read. These timelines and charts would help the students gather and share their thoughts during their LC. (edited) 2mo
JRone The lesson plan https://www.plt.org/recommended-reading/wishtree/ helps children use their higher-level thinking to make stories about the trees in their neighborhood and imagine if their was a different ending. 2mo
Tinks When I heard about this, I was going to pick it for my LC, didn‘t, but I will surely add this to my collection. Nice post. 2mo
DrSpalding I agree that it is the perfect literature circle option but it is also an excellent read aloud so that you can have the conversations with the children that are so relevant in today‘s society. 1d

The book Wishtree is about a very old tree name Red who has a very old tradition of people making wishes to Red and one day Red tries to grant that wish personality. This is a modern fantasy book that can be read by kids in grades 3-5 and is a very easy and enjoyable read. The teaching strategy I would use is independent reading. #ucflae3414f19

karlasanabria1 I have yet to read this book, but look forward to it. The only thing I would add is the lesson plan so I could get an idea of how to incorporate it into my future lessons. 2mo
kradebaugh This is such a fantastic book. I loved reading it. So full of fantasy it truly makes you wonder if trees could talk what would be saying to us. 2mo
ChrisC The ELL strategy that would work with this book is to use graphic organizers to help students compare and contrast the characters. The UDL principle that would benefit the students would be a 6.3, facilitate managing information to help students set goals for reading. (edited) 2mo

This MF is a tree's narrative about his interactions with animals and people. People come every year to tie pieces of cloth or paper to his branches and make a wish. When new neighbors move in, Red's job as the Wishtree is more important than ever. Resources and guides for the wish tree can be found at https://bookunitsteacher.com/wp/?p=5932. #ucflae3414su19

Bwhitley222 A UDL that can be applied to this text is 7.2, optimize relevance, value and authenticity.
EL. 44. Focus on thinking skills... because this EL strategy will help students to grasp the details of the book.
This book would be ideally taught as an LC.

This MF novel from the award winning author Katherine Applegate, wrote an amazing story of a “Wishtree“ in a neighborhood where they would write their wishes on a piece of paper and tie it to the branches. When new neighbors move in, there becomes a slight problem with “Red“ (the wishtree) and his occupants. (raccoons, birds, skunks, & more). This is a sweet story of friendship and loyalty.

https://www.wishtreebook.com

Summerm This story would best be RA, LC, or as an AS. This author is an amazing example to young readers. The UDL strategy 3.2 (Highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships) can be useful to get the class to comprehend the information & EL strategy 2 (promote cooperation). Promoting cooperation can make sure the class is behaving and paying attention #ucflea3414su19 (edited) 5mo

Wishtree is a F written by Katherine Applegate. This is a heartwarming story about a tree who is a town staple, where children and adults come to write wishes and hang them on the branches. When a new family moves in and isn‘t accepted by the community, the Wishtree‘s purpose becomes more important than ever. Students will learn the importance of kindness in this heart warming story. This is a great choice for IR or RA. #ucflae3414su19

This link will take you to a website with different teaching activity ideas for you to use in your classroom using the book Wishtree. In your own classroom you can use ESOL Strategy 38 to make reading easier. This book contains short chapters so it would fit this strategy perfectly. This also can satisfy UDL 8.3. Students can come together and discuss readings.

I've been needing to read this because the librarians and teachers I work with are crazy for it, then it got this beautiful adult release which doesn't really happen and I figured it's destined to be a classic. It's good and I see why it's great for the classroom, but definitely not my favorite middle grade novel. Very spoonfeedy; I prefer when an author allows kids to wrestle with ideas rather than present them with what is clearly right/wrong.

DrSpalding Did you read the children‘s version? It is a must read! Is the adult version the same story different cover? 6mo

”And if all you hear is the whisper of leaves, don‘t worry. most trees are introverts at heart.”

Katherine Applegate truly has a way with words. The story is seen through the eyes of a Tree, a Wishtree to be exact. And that right there was such a nice change from human or animal pov. She knows how to take complex conversations and make them simple for kids to understand. This a beautiful book about learning acceptance.

Wishtree by Katherine Applegate is an incredibile RF story, in which a tree named Red tells the story through witnessing what goes on in a suburban neighborhood. Wishtree highlights ESOL strategies 1, 2, 4, 5, 9, 44, and 50. It also highlight UDL principles 9.3, 2.1, and 1.3.

Wishtree is a F book full of believable nonhuman characters that help reveal an Anti-Muslim bigotry in the city they live in.

Newbery award winning (F) novel, Wishtree by Katherine Applegate, is wonderful for LC‘s. Wishtree is narrated by Red, a red oak tree that has “lived” in a immigrant neighborhood for more than two centuries. Visitors place their wishes on the beloved tree, until someone carves the word “LEAVE” into Red‘s trunk. The novel is engaging and provides meaningful themes related to today‘s culture. Great read for 3rd-6th grade! #LAE3414SP19
