Mo Willems' Pigeon is BACK in a hilarious story perfect for those about to start school or nursery. "There is no such thing as a bad Mo Willems book" The Times The Pigeon is about to get SCHOOLED. Do YOU think he should go? Why does the Pigeon have to go to school? He already knows everything! Well ... almost everything. And what if he doesn't like it? What if the teacher doesn't like him? I mean, what if he learns TOO MUCH!?!

The Pigeon HAS to go to School (F) by Mo Willems is about a Pigeon who really doesn‘t want to go to school. I think children will relate to this book and find it enjoyable to read. I would have a child who likes to present give a DR to the class. The UDL guideline I would use is 2.4 (have it printed in other languages that were used in my classroom) and the ESOL strategy I would use is number 20.

maciforster I love the read aloud of the author reading the book! The topic also seems like something the students would love. 5d

The Pigeon HAS to Go to School is a nonfiction (NF) book written and illustrated by Mo Willems. There‘s no awards for this book but I think it‘s such a cute children‘s book. It‘s about a pigeon who has so many fears about going to school but when he gets there, everyone is different in their own way. I thought it was so cute because when you first start school you have so many jitters and you‘re nervous, but in the end it‘s all going to be okay.

alexblanco I would use the RA teaching strategy because it would be difficult for kids to read by themselves due to all of all speech bubbles in different areas on the page. A standard I would use for this book would be “with prompting and support, describe the relationship between illustrations and the text in which they appear.” https://www.cpalms.org/Public/PreviewStandard/Preview/5732. #ucflae3414f19 1mo
alexblanco One EL strategy I would use would be to reinforce the key ideas I present again and again. I chose this because it is easy for EL‘s to get lost and not understand what‘s happening in books so if I reiterate it, it‘ll help keep them on track. A UDL strategy I would use would be to activate or supply background knowledge. All of my students would have had their first day of school before so I will ask them what some of their fears were. 1mo
maciforster The books seems so great!! I‘ve attempted to use the same standard for my teachlive but I didn‘t address this properly, however I think it would be great to use! 1mo
Erinehart This is such a cute book. I agree with you on using this as a read aloud due to all of the speech bubbles. That could be different for a younger child. 4w
