This book won a Caldecott Honor award for the fun illustrations that really bring the humor and the text to life. Children would love this book for its funny text and images that pair with it.

This award winner uses a very unique illustration that is not seen in man books. The use of black and white pictures brings an engaging factor to the book and allows the reader to focus on the carrots that pop out.

This F book is written by Aaron Reynolds and illustrated by Peter Brown. It is about Jasper picking a carrot out of the ground and hearing a strange noise. But he turned around and didn‘t see anything except the carrots. However, carrots soon start following him everywhere from the bathroom to late at night. It is a Caldecott Honor as well. #ucflae3414f19

Creepy Carrots! by Aaron Reynolds and illustrated by Peter Brown is a classic Caldecott winning F picture book. It tells the story of a Jasper Rabbit who gets followed by some creepy carrots, with a sweet and unexpected ending. The way Brown illustrated this book is a work of art itself, as a color coding enthusiast the color scheme was not unnoticed nor unappreciated. This is the perfect book for a Fall time RA. #UCFLAE3414F19

karlasanabria1 https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/books/creepy-carrots-by-mr-aaron-reynolds/ is an excellent Scholastic resource for all educators to be aware of. The UDL Guideline I‘d attach to this book is optimizing relevance, value, and authenticity (7.2). The ESOL Strategy I‘d follow would be simplifying your speech by making it slower and redundant (14). 2mo

Creepy Carrots! By Aaron Reynolds, 2012. Picturebook. I really love this picture book as the illustrations really capture the story. The story is based around a rabbit name Jasper who loves and eats carrots religiously until one day he notices the carrots start to follow him! The use of black and white throughout the whole book and vivid orange for the carrots as being the only color really help this story line!

This creepy Caldecott award winning picture book from Aaron Reynolds and Illustrator Peter Brown is a perfect book to read to your students around Halloween! Jasper Rabbit loves carrots, but when he eats too many they begin to follow him home and creepy things begin to happen. This story would best be taught in either S or RA style. UDL 3.2 would be appropriate to help highlight patterns in the book.

CPettersen Be sure to use EL 22 and give English language learners enough time to respond to questions. #ucflae34141f9 https://mrswillskindergarten.com/creepy-carrots-lesson-plans/ (edited) 3mo

This F, written by Aaron Reynolds and illustrated by Peter Brown, is a great RA picture book to read for elementary students around this Halloween, October season! A little rabbit boy named Jasper, loves to eat carrots up until he notices the carrots started following him. Jasper feared the carrots, so he took actions in his own hands and had a plan to stop this… which happened to be the carrots plan all along! #ucflae3414f19

sbombasi It has won a Caldecott Honor award as well with the spooky, dramatic illustrations of having the pages mainly black and white with accents of orange with things that look like “creepy carrots.”

The UDL principle 3.3 guiding information processing and visualization along with EL #44 focusing on thinking skills; predict- correspond to the activity and book.

sbombasi This site offers different activities for students and one that I really liked was the predictions. Before reading about what Jasper had planned, the students will write a prediction and draw a picture.

This F, written by Aaron Reynolds and illustrated by Peter Brown, is a great book for elementary teachers to add to their classroom library for a RA around Halloween. The main character, Jaspar, realizes he has a problem when the creepy carrots start to follow him. This book was awarded the Caldecott Honor for the illustrators choice of spooky colors. #UCFLAE3414F19

JRone When reading this story around Halloween, UDL strategy 7.2, optimize relevance, value, and authenticity, is great for this book. Children can relate it to the spooky stories they hear around Halloween. An EL strategy would be, #15 reinforce key ideas you present again and again. This is good for this book because the idea of creepy carrots is constantly repeated throughout the book. 3mo

Creepy Carrots, written by Aaron Reynolds and illustrated by Peter Brown, is a picture book using the modern fantasy genre. Jasper Rabbit has a deep, passionate love for carrots. He particularly loves the ones he picks from Crackenhopper Field. He eats them everywhere-to and from school and when he goes to his Little League games. The book takes a spooky turn when the carrots start to follow Jasper everywhere he goes. Jasper finds a solution.

ccipriati He builds a fence around Crackenhopper Field so that the carrots cannot escape. What he doesn‘t count on and what the carrots laugh about at night is that the fence prevents Jasper from ever picking them again! This book is perfect for read-aloud, especially closer to Halloween time! Creepy Carrots is also a Randall Caldecott Honor Medal winner for its color scheme and illustrations. 3mo
ccipriati Three UDL strategies would be applicable here. 2.1 Clarify vocabulary and symbols together with 2.2 Clarify syntax and structure would help in understanding some of the nuances in comprehension especially with the trick and humorous ending. Additionally, 5.1 Use multiple media for communication that would permit creativity by the kids in visualizing the story from their perspective. 3mo
ccipriati Two ESOL strategies that should be incorporated into the lesson would be #30, which encourages the use of diagrams and drawings as aids to identify concepts and seeing relationships and # 12, which would be to teach to two objectives, language, and context.

This SF book was an outstanding read for children! It has won the Caldecott award for its illustrations which were done by Peter Brown and written by Aaron Reynolds. I would use this book as a RT strategy and allow children to act it out. Jasper couldn‘t get enough carrots, until one day he thinks they‘re following him. He then comes up with a plan to stop them from getting out, little does he know, he can‘t get in. Just what the carrots wanted.

LibrarianRyan 😂 😂Have you read the sequel: Creepy pair of underwear. We accidentally misplaced the book at work and had our big boss in a tizzy because he kept hearing the staff talk about their creepy underwear. 😂 7mo
Macker11 Students will be able to use the 5.3 UDL strategy when they see other students act out the book. Also, EL strategy 14, simply speech by making it slower and redundant. This story has redundant words and actions.
