Written and illustrated by Sophie Blackall, this HF book is a Caldecott Awarding winner. This book follows the life of a lighthouse keeper. His daily chores, missing life at home with his wife, and some exciting and a little nerve-wrecking things along the way. The illustration in this book makes it a great book for a DR.

#Movember Day 9: #LaIslaBonita reminded me of this Caldecott Medal book. Fats‘ review: the book “is a beautiful tribute to lighthouses and lighthouse keepers around the world. Written in verse, the book portrays the duties of a lighthouse keeper: tending the light from sunrise to sunset, sounding the signal to warn ships when it‘s too foggy, doing household chores, meticulously recording what happens each day in a logbook.” https://wp.me/pDlzr-k0t

This HF book follows a lighthouse keeper throughout the years. His life changes drastically as time goes by, but the lighthouse remains constant. The illustrations created by Sophie Blackall won her the 2019 Caldecott Medal. This book would be great for PR & RA. UDL 1.1, “Offer ways of customizing the display of information,” works here, because each page is so different than the last in terms of how the information is organized. #UCFLAE3414F19

JennaMichelleCohn ESOL strategy 42, “Have students use timelines to arrange and sequence important facts and information,” would work well here because the story takes place over many, many years, and there are a lot of events that take place throughout these years. 2w
JennaMichelleCohn https://www.hachettebookgroup.com/landing-page/hello-lighthouse-educator-guide/ I really like this website, as it provides a great guide to having students get into the mind of a lighthouse keeper (or engineer) and use that creativity to write narratives and letters. 2w
Tinks I love lighthouses, but your brief synopsis reeled me in with wanting to read it. 2w
katiehamlin This book looks so good, I want to read it! The resource seems really good for this book. 2w

Hello Lighthouse by Sophie Blackall is a RF Caldecott award winning book. It‘s a perfect story for IR and a must-have for your elementary classroom library. It tells the story of a lighthouse keeper and his life in the lighthouse, but Blackall manages to write this book in the most beautifully captivating way possible. Your students will certainly enjoy this book, especially those with a love for the sea. #UCFLAE3414F19

karlasanabria1 The link below includes a Read Aloud video perfect to include in your lesson plan on Hello Lighthouse. https://www.rif.org/literacy-central/book/hello-lighthouse 1mo
karlasanabria1 The UDL Guideline I would say fits best with this book is offer alternatives for visual information (1.3). While the ESOL Strategy I‘d use would be using group assignments, portfolios, learning journals, and non-print options as alternative assessment (48). 1mo

Hello Lighthouse was written by Sophie Blackall and was published in 2019. This Caldecott award winning book feels like one of those books you read that makes you feel at ease. The almost sing song rhythm of the words of the book and the use of color calms the reader. I really enjoyed the use of the illustrations and colors to set the tone and convey the feelings off the page.

I would use this book in my classroom because it is great information about how lighthouses worked back in the day when they needed light keepers. It also has great information in the back of the book about lighthouses and why they are important.

This RF 2019 Caldecott Medal picture book is written and illustrated by Sophie Blackwell. Hello Lighthouse is about a man who is a keeper of the lighthouse and how he cares for the lighthouse, as well as how his life changes and evolves. The illustrations of this book will make you want to hop on a boat and find a lighthouse of your own.

This resource is great because it gives many mini lesson ideas based on the book, including experimental learning, debate, research and other elements.

KristenScala This book would best RA, using UDL strategy 3.2 to highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships along with EL strategies 5 and 20 teaching vocabulary and listing the most important words or phrases. 2mo
karlasanabria1 This is such an amazing post, I love your picture! I haven‘t ready it but absolutely need to now that I‘ve read your post. The cover did just what you said it would, it made me want to “hop on a boat and find a lighthouse of my own”. Great job on the UDL Guideline and ESOL Strategy as well. 1mo

This is a great book for kindergarten, 1st or 2nd graders. They have a lot of creative quotes in this book about how the lighthouse is helping out. This book really comes to life which is great for children's imagination.

Hello Lighthouse is a RF picture book written and illustrated by Sophie Blackall. This book has won the Caldecott Medal. It is a story the focuses on the married couple that runs the lighthouse on the sea. It showcases their life and struggles with beautiful imagery. I would use this book in my classroom as a digital S. This way the students can hear the story and see the beautiful illustrations as well.

carlenerubin https://www.slj.com/?detailStory=teaching-with-2019-caldecott-winner-hello-light...

UDL: 1.1
ESOL: 14
By using this book as a storytelling it allows for students to be able to see and hear the book in a different format. This allows the teacher to modify speech as an ESOL accommodation.

Bittersweet story about the life of a lighthouse keeper. Rich and beautiful illustrations to accompany a story about a lifestyle that is no more. I especially loved the last two pages that provided more details about lighthouses. It makes me want to look into more books about them!

Just added this delightful Caldecott Award winner to the library. This gorgeously illustrated picture book is about a year in the life of a lighthouse and the man, eventually family, that lives in and maintains it. When we got to the end, when the man is replaced with a machine to run the light, the kids all asked “Why?!?” Engaging, informative, and a wonderful snapshot of the history of lighthouses and the people who operate them.

Crazeedi I ❤❤ lighthouses!! 7mo
