The Bad Seed written by Jory John and illustrated by Pete Oswald is a great nonfiction book that is also a NY Times Bestseller! This book is about a seed that one day turned into a bad seed after someone spit him out and he took a hard fall. One day, he decided he didn‘t want to be bad anymore, he wanted to be good. He still forgets to listen and shows up late but he also says thank you and smiles! #ucflae3414f19

Alexush I actually heard controversial things about this when i went to buy it. I‘m glad you enjoyed it though! 3w

alexblanco It‘s such a cute book and I think kids could relate to it. I would use this book as a read aloud. A UDL strategy to use is minimize threats and distractions. Since I know this book talks about being bad, the kids might try to act out so it is important to prevent that. A ESOL strategy to use would be to use Venn diagrams to contrast and compare. 3w
alexblanco I could do this to check for comprehension by asking them to compare and contrast what the seed did when he was bad compared to what he does when he‘s good. A lesson plan I found for this book this https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Bad-Seed-Activities-and-Lesson-P.... I like how the activities deal with believing there is good in everyone, choosing positive self talk and believing people can change. 3w

Book fair book haul day 4. My youngest has to do a report on a biography so we got a pack of Who Is? To pick from. He loves bees and sunflower seeds so those he “had to come home with” him. And the librarian read a little of The Bad Guys so it is one of he wanted the most.

britt_brooke We love The Bad Seed. Nice haul! 2mo

Hubby‘s not feeling well so I was on double bedtime duty tonight. The boys chose their books well! #TheBadSeed is SO fun to read aloud and the illustrations in #HaveYouEverSeenaSmackofJellyfish are really stunning. One teaches a lesson, the other some wildlife facts plus the alphabet. What‘s not to love?? Highly recommend both books!

LeahBergen Is he a bad sunflower seed? 😂 2y
britt_brooke @LeahBergen Yep! 😆 It‘s such a cute book. He‘s good until he finds himself inside a bag of sunflower seeds, then gets spat out by a “giant.” Then he stops being polite, is always late, and never puts things back where they belong. It‘s pretty adorable. 2y

Indexasaurus I just read The Bad Seed to a group of pre-k kids, part of a theme in kindness. It is cute! Another one I read to them was The Blobfish Book, another cute/funny one (but also part nonfic so they learn something), highly recommend that one, too! 2y
britt_brooke @Indexasaurus I will look for that one - thanks! 2y

This book tries too hard to send a message about changing one‘s attitude, but I found it lacking. ⭐️⭐️

Louise An overbearing attitude in a book about attitude? Why is that not more surprising? 😂 2y
Tamra I liked the illustrations, but I too didn‘t like the tone. 2y

Thanks so much @EchoLogical ❣️❣️ Holden loves all of his books and goodies! He squealed when he opened Captain Underpants! It‘s all just perfect for him. He‘s a VERY happy little dude this morning! 🤩🤩 #secretsantakids

EchoLogical I'm so glad! I noticed that I forgot to include the Batman pins I wanted to send, though. 🤦🏾‍♀️ I'll mail them after the holidays. 2y
britt_brooke @EchoLogical Oh gosh, no worries. This was plenty! 2y

#UCFLA3414F17 The Bad Seed by Jory John is a modern fantasy. It is an Amazon Best Children's Book. It is the story about a bad seed that has a bad temper and bad manners. It talks about positive changes for the main character.

ProfessorOak Link https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Bad-Seed-Book-Study-3441230 I think I would used UDL 3.1 activate of supply background knowledge. #UCFLA3414F17 2y
ProfessorOak And I would choose ESOL 4, link lesson topic to students prior knowledge because children need to go over what they just learned. #UCFLA3414F17 2y
jasminep This book looks so adorable!! I love the cover this definitely looks like a book the kids would love and maybe some would even relate to lol. 2y
JordanHull This book has a cute concept and could really help some “bad seeds” in your classroom. I wonder why you rated it “so-so”. Great source and strategies :) 2y

The Bad Seed, a children‘s literature book written by Jody Johns, tells the story about a bad seed. A really, REALLY BAAAAAAAAAAD seed! He has a bad temper and manners, but one day, he decides to be happy and everything changes! This book could be used for a read-aloud in class, as more often than not, our students will have behavioral problems. A UDL I️ found for this: 9.3, which is to develop self-assessment and reflection.

Klewis81 An ESOL strat that can be applied: 3, encourage self-talk (positive thinking). Attached is a lesson that can be used: https://thiskidreviewsbooks.com/2017/09/15/perfect-picture-book-friday-the-bad-s... 2y
AshleyAA A great book to show students just how drastically a positive attitude can effect all aspects of their lives. Will have to add this to my library! 2y
