This F book was written by Louis Sachar and illustrated by Adam McCauley. When I was in third grade, my teacher read this aloud to us and I loved it. I would use this book for a RA. Sideways Stories from Wayside School is about a school that is 30 stories high because it was built sideways. Each chapter you are introduced to a new character and hear their strange and funny stories. #UCFLAE3414F19

JRone UDL strategy 7.3 Minimize threats and distractions goes along with this book because if you choose to read this book aloud some of the silly stories will have students wanting to add their input. ESOL strategy #30 Encourage the use of diagrams and drawings as aids to identify concepts and seeing relationships would be beneficial for an EL to keep up with each of the 30 different characters. 2mo
JRone http://www.denilya.net/reading/Wayside%20School%20Lesson%20Plans.pdf is a 14-day lesson plan the breaks down the book into bits and pieces and adds a fun activity at the end where the children get to make their own “sideway story“ about themselves. 2mo
DrSpalding I like the idea of a read aloud. There are so many characters that you would probably need to use a graphic organizer! Valuable resource. He is an excellent author that you could also perform an author study while reading the book. 1mo

Where the Wild Things Are | Maurice Sendak
post image

I have fond memories of this F book written and illustrated by Maurice Sendak. My mom used to read me this story before bed every night. I remember loving the illustrations of the wild things. This book deserved the Caldecott Medal it won. A young boy travels to a forest where the Wild Things live. He manages to become king of the Wild Things! This book would make a great RA, RT, or S.

Jgolub13 As I believe with most Caldecott winning book a great ESOL strategy would be #30 Encourage the use of diagrams and drawings as aids to identify concepts
and seeing relationships. The drawings in this story will only help these students understand what they are reading. The UDL strategy Offer alternatives for auditory information (1.2) goes hand in hand with this. The alternative is the illustrations.
Jgolub13 This lesson is a fantastic lesson on using action words or verbs like they would in Where The Wild Things Are. The students will love this activity as they learn all about verbs. https://growingbookbybook.com/where-the-wild-things-are-action-word-rompus/ 2mo
DrSpalding One of your peers found the same activity regarding replacing boring verbs with more engaging ones! This shows how quality children‘s literature can be used as mentor text for writing activities. 1mo

This MF book is a classic, and one of my favorites growing up. It was written by Judi Barrett and illustrated by Ron Barrett. Chewandswallow is a special town with special weather. The residents never have to buy food, because three times a day food falls from the sky for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Until the weather takes a turn, and gets extreme. How will the residents of Chewandswallow react? #ucflae3414f19

Jgolub13 This classic book recieved many awards including the 1980 Colorado Children's Book Award, 1984 Georgia Children's Book Award, and the 1990 Delaware Diamonds Award. 2mo
Jgolub13 This book has fantastic illustrations that help capture the imagination of its readers. My ESOl strategy is #30 Encourage the use of diagrams and drawings as aids to identify concepts and seeing relationships. Also, my UDL principle is Use multiple media for communication (5.1). 2mo
Jgolub13 This lesson plan takes a classic MF book, and creates a science lesson. This lesson helps children understand how living things rely on their environment like the residents of Chewandswallow rely on the weather for food. https://teachers.net/lessons/posts/1467.html 2mo
Jgolub13 This book would be a great RA, but an even better RT! 2mo
DrSpalding This is a classic book and obviously a multiaward winner. Read aloud for sure and if you can create or find a readers theater to assist in fluency… That would work well! 1mo

This book takes a classic folktale, and changes the point of view to turn into a fantastic f picture book. This book tells the story of the three little pigs, but from the big bad wolf's point of view. Actually, it is told from Al's point of view, that's the big bad wolf's real name. According to Al we all have heard the wrong story. It was all a big bad understanding. #ucflae3414f19

Jgolub13 This book won the Notable Children's Recordings award in 2009. My UDL strategy would be Vary the methods for response and navigation (4.1). My ESOL strategy would be #30 Encourage the use of diagrams and drawings as aids to identify concepts and seeing relationships. 3mo
Jgolub13 Point of View is the perfect strategy to discuss with this book. I believe that this lesson uses the book in a great way to introduce point of view to students. They can discuss this story from the pig's and the wolf's point of view. https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/true-story-3-l... 3mo
Jgolub13 This book is written by Jon Schieszka and illustrated by Lane Smith 3mo
DrSpalding Your storytelling was off the charts fun! Please do this for students as it truly does assist children in understanding point of view. 1mo

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.

DrSpalding Many of your peers used the same resource. This is such a fun read aloud for children in the month of October. Use it along with graphic organizers to assist students in comprehending the story. 1mo

Neon Prey | John Sandford
post image

The thing I love most about Sandford is he‘s funny. Bob and Rae are really growing on me.

TrishB I have one of his on my kindle, but not read any yet. 6mo
DGRachel @TrishB I picked up the first Prey novel in mass market paperback in 1998 and I‘ve been hooked ever since. There was one book in the series I hated and one or two more that were just okay, but I think they‘re fun, fast-paced reads with great characters. 6mo
TrishB I‘m trying to catch up with other series before starting new ones! But good to know 😁 6mo

DGRachel @TrishB I totally understand that! If I hadn‘t been reading his books for decades, I probably wouldn‘t start now. I think Neon Prey is #30 in this series and there‘s at least 10 in the Virgil Flowers soon-off series. 😱 6mo
CindyMyLifeIsLit I‘ve been reading the Prey series since its inception and pick up any John Sandford book and buy it. I don‘t bother to read the jacket summary—there‘s no need. All I need to know is that John Sandford wrote it! 6mo
DGRachel @CindyMyLifeIsLit The only time that bit me in the backside was the book he co-wrote with Ctein. I hated that one, but I auto-buy the Prey and Flowers books and usually read them within a week of their release dates. I‘m actually late getting to this one. 6mo

I figured it was about time I read this one!! 2019#30

BlameJennyJane Me too! I saw a post the other day and snagged it from the library. 7mo
MaceyT15 @BlameJennyJane I picked this up from my library too. I need to read all his books before I pick his newest as my Book Of The Month for July. I've heard his books are amazing! 7mo
BlameJennyJane @MaceyT15 me too! And this is the first one I‘m reading. Not sure why it took me so long. Lol 🤣 7mo
MaceyT15 @BlameJennyJane same here! I suppose because my TBR just keeps growing, it's hard to keep up. At least we are reading it now!!! 7mo

I've always been interested in the Borden case and have had this on my tbr for a while, so I'm glad the generator chose #30.

I'm a UK user, so didn't know much about the case and the lead-up to the murders. This retelling was interesting to me, I didn't know that the Bordens were rich and kept a maid or about the uncle.

It was a good starting point for me and would definitely read more about this case.

PirateJenny I'm in the middle of this. One thing that kind of annoys me is that only Mrs. Borden ever called the maid Bridget. Everyone else called her Maggie, the name of the previous maid. Also just a little note on the class thing in town: they were well-off but not exactly rich. There were other Bordens in Fall River who were rich and didn't consider Andrew and his family good enough to be real Bordens. 7mo
jenniferw88 @PirateJenny thanls for the insight. 7mo
PirateJenny @jenniferw88 I've been fascinated by the case since I was a kid. I accidentally got married on the anniversary of the murders! My husband refuses to go to the Borden B&B for our anniversary though. 😂 7mo
