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

maciforster This book would be great for a RA, especially around Halloween. This website has some great ideas on activities you can do with your students: https://mrswillskindergarten.com/creepy-carrots-lesson-plans/ 4w
maciforster I think it can tie into UDL principle 2.4 in case some students are unfamiliar with the theme of Halloween. The EL strategy #20 to help with the vocabulary 4w
Alexush The class I‘m volunteering for did the cutest activity for this book and loved it! 4w

Erinehart This book is a book of poems about bugs. I would use this book for a RL with a class k-3. There are poems throughout the book of a little cricket. An UDL strategy that I would use for this text is 2.3 “support deciding if text and symbols because a poem could be read differently than a regular text.“ Since poems are to be read differently, it is important to discuss that with the students and acknowledge that it is not just a normal text. (edited) 2mo
Erinehart A ESOL strategy that I would use for this book and RL is #20. List the most important words and phrases you use or plan to use.”. Since some poems aren't extremely detailed, it is important the the students are still able to get the information from the text. (edited) 2mo

This is a resource for teachers that provides different lesson plans relating to the text.
DrSpalding I am not sure what the RL stands for but I am assuming read aloud. It looks like it would make a fun storytelling too. 5d

My husband walked through the door and handed me this!!! So very cool. This volume not only includes I Hate Fairyland #11-#20 but also the FCBD I Hate Image issue as well as a gallery of variant covers and the complete Issue #11 script. And so my Skottie Young shelf grows even more crowded. Love. It.

Just finished this book earlier today before work and I just need to say...it's a freaking masterpiece. Seriously. A brilliant, insightful, and humorous take on relationships, how perspectives differ, marriage, divorce, ambition, parenthood, and gender. I felt seen during so many parts of this story. I will be thinking about it for a long, long time. Five stars! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Leftcoastzen Wow, I have been curious about it this one , your great review means I must check it out! 3mo
marleed I have this on hold at the lib. #20 on 7 copies w/ an estimated 6 week wait. But I usually get it sooner. It seems patrons are good at early e-lib check in‘s of popular books. 3mo
Branwen @Leftcoastzen Awwww, thank you! You just made my night! I really hope you like it as much as I did! 💕📚 @marleed That seems to be the case a lot of times at my library too! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that it comes in fast! 🤞 3mo

The Crossover | Kwame Alexander
post image

The Crossover by Kwame Alexander is a RF book that has won the 2015 Newberry Medal and Coretta Scott King. This coming of age poetic novel is about two twin boys that are having some trouble as one brother starts to like a girl at school. These tiffs start to effect how the boys play basketball and their home life. I would use this book as an IR or a RA, depending on the reading level and age of your students. #UCFLAE3414SU19

Kendylleonard The resource I found gives vocabulary words for the book. I thought this was a great resource because this book does use some terms that students might not know; so this is a great way for students to understand what these words mean! https://www.rif.org/literacy-central/book/crossover I would use UDL 2.1 by clarifying vocabulary. I would use ESOL strategy #20. 4mo
Mary_Dehner Great review Kendyl, couldn‘t have said it better myself. I really enjoyed reading this book. It‘s an easy read that provides so many teaching opportunities. 4mo
Kendylleonard @Mary_Dehner I loved it too! I literally cried at the end! 4mo
Mary_Dehner @Kendylleonard it‘s a good one! Literally read it in two sittings. Very relatable. 4mo
DrSpalding It is an excellent coming of age poetic novel. Looking forward to you all being able to discuss this in class. 4mo

Giraffes Can‘t Dance by Giles Andreae is a MF that I would use as RA in the classroom, especially if I was having any bullying issues. The story is about a giraffe that can‘t dance, and all of the other animals make fun of him, until he figures out that he can dance! The resource I found is a lesson plan from the publisher, Scholastic. #UCFLAE3414SU19

Kendylleonard https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/giraffes-cant-.... The UDL I would use is 1.2 because the lesson allows students to come up with their own rhymes. I would use ESOL strategy #20 as it will help students find the words they need to use in order to make their sentences rhyme. 5mo
Macker11 I love this book and the resource that you chose to go along with it! It would be a good way to discuss being friendly as you stated, allowing kids to be kind to all that are around them no matter what they can or can‘t do. 5mo
SarynaN Love that you related the book to a specific behavioral problem you might experience in the classroom! Also making it a read aloud makes sure that it is inclusive for all students. 5mo
Kendylleonard @Macker11 @SarynaN I love this book because it teaches a great lesson! What‘s better than a book on kindness! 4mo
DrSpalding This would be an excellent read aloud however I have seen it as a storytelling as well with music… Fabulous! 4mo
