The Polar Express | Chris Van Allsburg
post image
Pickpick

One of the most underrated holiday stories comes to life in this F book written and illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg. A young boy takes a magical train to the North Pole on Christmas Eve. He finds out that one of the children will be selected to receive the first gift of Christmas from Santa. Who will be picked? What will they get? Most importantly, do you still believe? This book won a Caldecott Medal for its fantastic illustrations.

Jgolub13 This book provides a great opportunity to use the culture of many students who celebrate Christmas. This is why I believe that ESOL strategy #24 Incorporate the culture and the language of second language learners in your curriculum is perfect. I also believe that UDL principle Activate or supply background knowledge (3.1) fits as well. This should activate background knowledge in many of the students. 1w
Jgolub13 I love this lesson from scholastic. It assesses comprehension by having students “record a podcast“ to tell the story of The Polar Express to the generations after the students. That way they will believe forever, and the teacher can assess the student's comprehension. https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/polar-express-... #ucflae3414 (edited) 1w

Thank You, Omu! | Oge Mora

This RF book tells the story of what kindness can bring. It is written and illustrated by Oge Mora, and she won a Caldecott Medal for her fantastic illustrations. A sweet old grandmother makes a big pot of soup for dinner. When many townspeople smell the soup they want to try it, and as a kind person would do the grandmother shares. What happens when she runs out of the soup before she can try it? #ucflae3414f19

Jgolub13 This book does such a fantastic job of showing the importance of kindness that I think that UDL strategy 9.1 “Promote expectations and beliefs that optimize motivation.“ fits this book perfect. This is also the perfect book for ESOL strategy #24 Incorporate the culture and the language of second language learners in your curriculum. This book is published in Spanish, and is very easy to get your hands on a Spanish copy. 1w
Jgolub13 This lesson has many different activities for students. I like the one about stirring the pot in particular. It is a lesson where students stir a pot full of letters. They then have to pull letters to make words. https://growingbookbybook.com/thank-you-omu-activities/ 1w

No, David! | David Shannon
post image
Pickpick

No, David! By David Shannon is a fun and comedic F story. Shannon actually wrote and illustrated this book when he was just 5 years old. He then found it as an adult and decided to make it a book. This won him the Caldecott Medal Award. His story shares his misbehaving and his mother always telling him “No, David!”. I think this would be a good book for a IR that would be included in the classroom library. #ucflae3414f19

cassandram Another option is to make it into a lesson that discusses Shannon‘s writing style. A resource for this is this lesson plan https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/write-david-sh.... 1mo
cassandram With this in mind I would include UDL 6.3 facilitate managing information and resources by discussing his style of writing and studying his other stories with similar style. You could also include ESOL #24 incorporate the language of second language learners. This would be great since many of his books have a Spanish version. 1mo

Whoever You Are | Mem Fox, Leslie Staub
post image
Pickpick

Whoever You Are is a RF book written by Mem Fox and illustrated by Leslie Straub. This picture book is perfect for showing children that even though people may look different and act different, it doesn't mean we are different. It is a great message to send children at any elementary grade level. #UCFLAE3414F19

JRone The lesson plan http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/moving-toward-acc... is perfect for the book because it allows students to move toward acceptance in their school and in their lives. This book is also perfect for an RA. 1mo
JRone A UDL strategy for this book would be 3.2, highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas and relationships. This would help children connect with people who don't necessarily look like them. An EL strategy would be #24, incorporate the culture and the language of second language learners into the curriculum. This shows students where everyone is from and how it differs from where they live or why they do things differently. 1mo
Erinehart I haven‘t read this book yet, but your summary makes me want to know more! 1mo
sbombasi This book looks great for the classroom where students will notice their peers are different in many ways, but also similarities which is very important for ELs as you mentioned! 1mo

#Booked2019 @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft

I've been forgetting to add my tags for the #Booked2019 challenge! Here's what I've got for fall so far:

#19. Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo (Evelyn is addicted to fame! 🎥)

#21. The Testaments (So freaking good!)

Question... Would the whistleblower's account work for #23/#24 possibly? 😬

#22. Wayward Son (Penelope is one of the POV characters.)

BarbaraTheBibliophage Hah. That‘s a good question. I found a book with the account in Scribd, even though I downloaded the account I read from a Congressional site. I‘d say sure ... but I‘d be more inclined to call it political intrigue than public domain. What do you think co-hosts? 2mo
Cinfhen I think it works for both categories 🤷🏼‍♀️ 2mo

#NCBD and it‘s a big one today. It‘s release day for Marvel Comics #1000 and the comic store, knowing my enthusiasm for all things Skottie Young, ordered his variant cover for me. 😍 Also out today, Wonder Woman #77, Star Pig #2, Runaways #24, Ascender #5 & Skyward, Vol. 3. It‘s so much awesome, I almost don‘t know where to begin... Maybe I‘ll just have to spend the afternoon—it‘s the last week of summer vacation after all—reading all the things!

A Big Mooncake for Little Star written and Illustrated by Grace Lin is a heart warming Fantasy Fiction PB that tells about her cheeky daughter eating the mooncake into the phases of the moon. It‘s a wonderful story that cross concepts with science: perfect for a primary grade RA. I would utilize ESL strategy #24 and UDL 8.2. Here is a resource to go with the text that helps students understand the moon phases.

DrSpalding Cool image for a recent award winner! High-quality resource. Use this book during science instruction. 3mo

The Tempest | William Shakespeare

Pickpick

Book #24: While I usually do not like the writing style of Shakespeare, and I generally don't like reading plays in general, there are some plays that I do enjoy. The Tempest is perhaps one of, if not the, weirdest of the Shakespearean plays. The premise of the play deals with a mystical island with witches and spells. And although many of...
