I am Amelia Earhart | Brad Meltzer
post image
Pickpick

This book is a part of a B series. It is written by Brad Meltzer and illustrated by Christopher Eliopoulos. I am Amelia Earhart tells the story of the girl who became the first woman to fly alone across the Atlantic Ocean. I was drawn to these books because of the adorable illustrations. This book and the series can be used for different AS in the classroom. #UCFLAE3414F19

JRone UDL strategy 4.2 Optimize access to tools and assistive technologies would go along with the book to show students the different kind of materials they can use to access information for their author studies. ESOL strategy #42 Have students use timelines to arrange and sequence important facts and information would help an EL keep track of what happened throughout the course of Amelia's life. 1mo

I loved this F book as a child, and I think my future students will love it too. It is perfect for a RA to see how needy this little mouse can be. It all starts with a cookie, but the mouse just wants more stuff! They can be as reasonable as a napkin, or something kind of outrageous. You will just have to read to find out what he wants!

Jgolub13 I chose the UDL principle Offer ways of customizing the display of information (1.1), because I think there are many ways to display all of the things the mouse wants. The ESOL strategy I chose was #42 Have students use timelines to arrange and sequence important facts and information. That way ESOL students can create a timeline of all the things that mouse needs. 1mo
Jgolub13 This fantastic lesson plan incorporates predictions in a fun way. The students need to make predictions using context clues of what the mouse may want next. They also will need to make a timeline of what happened in the story.

DrSpalding Read write think is an excellent resource as you know. Making predictions is part of the language arts Florida standards. 1w

Al Capone Does My Shirts | Gennifer Choldenko
post image
Pickpick

This Newbery Honor Book and New York Times Best Seller is a HF novel written by Gennifer Choldenko. Moose Flanagan moved to the infamous island of Alcatraz who's home to criminals like Al Capone in 1935. Moose tries to fit in and protect his sister but on Alcatraz, trouble is never far away. #UCFLAE3414F19

JRone This lesson plan would be great for a LC because it provides in-depth questions for students to share their thoughts on. https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/al-capone-does... 2mo
JRone UDL strategy 2.1, clarify vocabulary and symbols would be essential for students to understand words relating to the island, criminals and overall the whole story before reading the book. EL strategy #42, have students use timelines to arrange and sequence facts and important information would help students follow along with all the major events in the book. 2mo
DrSpalding This is such a great book to integrate social studies and English language arts. It would make an excellent literature circle option for your students. 1w

Highly recommend the audio with this one, it's long but worthwhile. It's roughly 30 hours long, and takes place in the build up to the Russian revolution and the following years. #42 #2019

Hatchet | Gary Paulsen
post image
Pickpick

This RF book is a Newbery Honor book written by Gary Paulsen! I would have this book in my classroom library for an IR. This book could spark interest in a lot of students, the trials that Brian went through. Brian started with a divorce in the family and that leads to a plane ride that makes him the pilot. He knows the only way is down, so there he goes! Find out how he survives alone in the woods and if he‘s ever found! #UCFLAE3414SU19

Macker11 Students while they are reading can use ESOL#42 and create a timeline of events that happens in the book. Along with UDL 1.1 which allows to customize the display of information, which will be done in the timeline. The entire book can be told from their timeline by the end of it. https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/hatchet-lesson... is a resource for teachers to go with the text. Also the back of the book has some! 5mo
Summerm I remember reading this book in 5th grade and we watched a movie on it. To this day, it is still one of my favorite books. It is so intriguing and interesting on how he lives and what that young boy goes through. I definitely plan on having this in my classroom for a LC or RA. 5mo
DrSpalding There are several books with Brian as the main character! This too is a classic. Knowing books that will intrigue young boys is important. Gary Paulsen is an excellent author to turn to for adventure stories. 5mo

The Peace Tree from Hiroshima is a HF book about a tree that survived the bombing of Hiroshima. The family is learning new secrets about the bombing and how it affected them throughout the story. I would use this book as RA to discuss the historical events of what happens throughout the book. The resource I found is an easy breakdown of what took place in WWII so students will have some background information on what happened. #UCFLAE3414SU19

Kendylleonard https://www.ducksters.com/history/world_war_ii/ww2_atomic_bomb.php This book won the 2015 Silver Evergreen Medal for World Peace. The UDL I would use is 1.3 I would pull up a map and show students where the war took place. I would also use ESOL strategy #42 so students can see how and when the war was happening. (edited) 5mo
DrSpalding I am guessing you found this in the CMC, correct? I have added this to my stack. I have mentioned Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes… These two books would make for excellent text to text connections. YES... to pulling up a world map and sharing geographical information with your students. Whenever you can embed these skills as they apply, do it! 4mo

Book #42: The Portrait of a Lady, and Henry James in general, fall into my unmemorable category. Neither of the two stories that I have read of his on my lists I can recall at all. The Portrait of a Lady follows an American woman, Isabel Archer, who moved to Europe and ends up having to adapt from the free thinking American way of life to the more...
