Just finished. The cliffhanger was so strong in #13 that I had to continue reading #14. A LOT of story going on in Depth of Winter and some 'oh, how convenient' moments.

#NCBD! Pull list releases include Steeple #4, Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #14 (last issue in this run which means my daughter, who is reading it, is going to be unhappy), Undiscovered Country #2, Far Sector #2, & Ignited #5. Add-on, courtesy of the staff at Chicago Comics, is Dying is Easy #1. Also grabbed The Dollhouse Family #2 (because Joe Hill) & Die, Vol.1 about which I hear good things. Added Strange Academy & Outlawed (March) to list.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom | Bill Martin, Jr.

Pickpick

This P book by Bill Martin, Jr. and John Archambault but illustrated by Lois Ehlert is about the letters of the alphabet racing up the coconut tree. It‘s a great book for CR because the rhyme will make it easier to make a rhythm for the students to follow along. #ucflae3414f19

maciforster This could go with UDL principle 1.3 to provide multiple ways for the students to understand the book and EL strategy #14 for the students to follow along as well. 2mo
maciforster This link is great for a whole group or small group cooperation: http://lessons.atozteacherstuff.com/49/fun-with-chicka-chicka-boom-boom/ 2mo
Jewelwinkler This book could would be great for those auditory learns since it incorporates music into literature 2mo
DrSpalding Fun resource and nice universal design and English learner strategy alignment. While this does rhyme, what genre is this book really? 1mo

Where the Wild Things Are | Maurice Sendak

Pickpick

#ucflae3414f19 Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak, is a MF story of a little boy named Max. After his mother sends him to bed without dinner, Max falls asleep and his room immediately turns into a moonlit forest surrounded by a gigantic ocean. For some reason growing up, this book was not one of my favorites however the more I read it the more I begin to appreciate it. This book would be great as a RA or a LC for grades k-5.

Erinehart The UDL strategy that I think would be useful for this text is 1.2 “Offer alternatives for auditory information.“ and the ESOL strategy I found the be good for this text is #14 “Simplify your speech by making it slower and redundant.“ I find this especially important for a read aloud. 2mo

YvetteE I chose to model the same book because this is one of my favorite stories! The book is more fun to read as an adult because now we understand how mom could be so terrible. 2mo
DrSpalding I absolutely love this resource. This book also makes an excellent readers theater but of course should be read aloud. Remember our conversation in class, this could be considered modern fantasy or some believe it is realistic fiction and that Max is dreaming. 2mo

First Day Jitters | Julie Danneberg

Pickpick

Erinehart #ucflae3414f19 First Day Jitters is an adorable RF children‘s PB written by Julie Danneberg. It's about a teacher who just doesn't want to go in for her first day of school. While reading this, you don't know it's referring to a teachers until the very last page. I think this book would be great for a RA on the first day of school for a class k-3 to calm the students nerves. (edited) 2mo
Erinehart https://www.weareteachers.com/first-day-jitters-activities/ this website is a great resource for different activities relating to the first day of school that would go great with this book. 2mo
Erinehart A UDL strategy that I found would be great for this text is 1.1 “Offer ways of customizing the display of information .“
A ESOL that would work with this text is #14 “Simplify your speech by making it slower and redundant“. This is very important for RA, because without the students actually seeing the text it is important as the teacher that you are delivering it in a way they can understand.

DrSpalding I will read Last Day Blues on our last day. This certainly should be a read aloud on the first day of school. Great use of this high-quality resource. 2mo

I want to focus on one of poem in particular. Sick is a classic that I have heard countless times, and did not know it was by Shel Silverstein. It is even parodied in the American version of The Office. I love the way that each one of Peggy's symptoms rhyme as she tries to stay home from school. It is a poem that children, and even some teachers can relate to. We all have days where we just want to stay home, and in the end Peggy might.

Jgolub13 I think this may be a tough one for ESOL students to understand so I think it is important that strategy #14 Simplify your speech by making it slower and redundant is followed. The UDL principle Heighten salience of goals and objectives (8.1) is important to find out Peggy's goal. 2mo
Jgolub13 This poem can be used as an IR, RA, but I think that it is a fantastic DR. The hyperboles in this poem make for a great DR and lesson on hyperboles. This lesson plan incorporates Sick for a full discussion on hyperboles. https://www.matchfishtank.org/curriculum/english-language-arts/6th-grade-english... 2mo

DrSpalding Thoroughly enjoyed this particular poem! Use poetry anthology‘s and of course bring these to life using dramatic reenactment! 2mo

The Giving Tree | Shel Silverstein
post image
Pickpick

#ucflae3414f19 The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein is a poetry book written about a boy and his relationship with a tree. This book would be of great use in a classroom library. I would use this book for storytelling and would bring he giving tree to life.

Erinehart The UDL strategy the I find would work for this book is 3.3 “Guide information processing and visualization.“ and an ESOL strategy that I would use is #14 “Simplify your speech by making it slower and redundant.“ A ESOL strategy that I would use with this text is 2.2 “Clarify syntax and structure“; since it is poetry it is important that the student is able to understand how to read the text. (edited) 2mo
Erinehart A great resource for this book is https://msu.edu/~zenkcarl/GT%20lesson%20plan.html, providing different lessons relating to sharing and kindness. (edited) 2mo
DrSpalding This would make an excellent storytelling and I have seen it many times. With that teaching strategy, your principles and strategies align beautifully. 2mo

#UCFLAE3414F19 This cute traditional literature book written and illustrated by Angela Dominguez is a spin on the classic nursery rhyme, “Mary Had a Little Lamb.” But, in this version, Mary becomes Maria and the lamb becomes a llamita and the backdrop of the book is the Peruvian countryside. What is unusual about the book is that it includes the Spanish translation of the sentences on each page along with the English translation.

ccipriati In this story, Maria has a llama whose fleece was white as snow. The llama followed Maria everywhere, even to school! Even though Maria‘s peers and classmates thought this was humorous, her teacher did not and sent the llama outside. Because of the bilingual nature of the book and the story‘s familiarity, this would be a great book to include in your classroom, especially with ELL students. 2mo
ccipriati The UDL Guideline strategy that I have chosen for this book is 3.3 which is a strategy intended to guide information processing and visualization. You can do this by creating props for your storytelling. For example, you can create a Maria and a llama and show how the llama followed Maria everywhere she went. 2mo
ccipriati The ESOL Strategy that I picked for this book is #14 which is a strategy where you simplify your speech by making it slower and redundant. This is important to use for this so that the ELL students will be able to associate the English words with the Spanish translation while reading along. Pointing to the wonderful illustrations in this book would be helpful as well.

ccipriati This is a great link to look at and include into your classroom with ELL‘s. It contains fun activities that include Spanish and English translations that go along with the book. https://makewayforbooks.org/maria-had-a-little-llama-maria-tenia-una-llamita/ 2mo
DrSpalding What a wonderful book for incorporating Spanish words with a folklore variant. Helpful resource. I think this was a book you won in class… Use it well! 1mo
