Actual Size | Steve Jenkins
post image
Pickpick

This NF picture book by Steve Jenkins is great for RA, students can learn information about these types of animals on the pages and the illustrations make you see their actual sizes! I love how exact measurements is displayed as well. It would definitely be fun to read and engage students. #ucflae3414f19

This teacher‘s guide has a lesson that incorporates discussing the book, math in measuring, and drawing. I find it great that it reaches across the curriculum along with text-to-text of using other additional nonfiction books with pictures of animals.

sbombasi The UDL principle 8.2 vary demands and resources to optimize challenges along with EL #4 linking lesson topic to students‘ prior knowledge about animals will align with this. 14h

Ultimate Ocean Rumble | Jerry Pallotta
post image

This is a nonfiction picture book about what would happen if sea creatures met in a tournament. Who would be the ocean champion? This is a good book for independent readers in grades 3-5. #ucflae3414f19

ChrisC The ELL strategy I would use would be activate prior knowledge to help students make connections. The principle that would go along with this book is 3.1 activate or supply background knowledge to help students with making connections. To find good resources at a modest price visit www.teacherspayteachers.com they have resources and lesson plans to use with this book. 23h

Short and to the point, which is ok with me. Informative and a bit gross, but relevant. It had vibrant and clear pictures. It is part of our nonfiction books for students who are at a lower reading level.

One of the kids returned it today and as I was checking it in it caught my eye. I read it before I re-shelved it, while waiting for a class to show up. #nonfiction #animals

Ponies | Laura Marsh
post image
Pickpick

This a nonfiction book by Laura Marsh. This would be a great book for science this would a book that I would use as a read aloud and break the book down into pieces so that the information could be easily learned. This book talks about the differences between ponies and horses. It talks about how there are many breeds, colors and location of ponies, it even gives a historical background on ponies. #ucflae3414f19

kradebaugh The UDLs that I chose are 2.1 To Clarify vocabulary and symbols and 4.1 vary the methods for response and navigation. ESOL strategies 15 reinforcing key ideas, and 18 use commands and directions that involve over student actions. 5d
haleyklein I love the scholastics books! Awesome choice! 5d
Camrynm Your UDL principle and ESOL strategy seems like it would work very well with this NF book. 5d

JRone I think a read-aloud would be great with this book. While reading aloud, you can tie in clarifying vocabulary if there are any confusing words children don't understand! 5d
alexblanco This is such a cute book, scholastic books are so fun and informative and kids love them! 5d

All about Animals | Lee Phillips
post image

Very colorful and descriptive book about many different types of animals. Actual real life photos taken by the author herself. “All about Animals“ by: Dee Phillips falls under NF due to the factual nature of the book. The UDL 3.1 regarding activating/supplying background knowledge along with EL 29 for offering a variety of ref. materials at the students' instructional level for independent use. A must for all classroom libraries. #UCFLAE3414F19

Tinks This book offers a great source of information and material for many classroom activities and discussions. Perfect for all age groups. ** Had to include my Kairo in the picture since it is “All about Animals“... 😍 #UCFLAE3414F19 6d

What Do You Do With a Tail Like This? | Steve Jenkins, Robin Page
post image
Pickpick

A great NF Caldecott honor book, What Do You Do With A Tail Like This? by Steve Jenkins illustrated by Robin Page. This book talks about what different animals do with their ears, nose, mouth, eyes, and tails. UDL for this book is 1.1 offer ways of customizing the display of information. ESOL I would use is 20 list the important words and phrases you use or plan to use in a presentation on a transparency or on the chalkboard. #UCFLAE3414F19

AleciaM This is a great book to tie into a science lesson, or just have in your library for those inquisitive readers.

41 Uses for a Cat | Harriet Ziefert

I can‘t believe that people spend money on this book and that the author and illustrator are making money off of this! The writing is overly simplistic - just a numbered list of 1 or 2 word entries and the illustrations that are paired with each cat “use” look rushed and childish. As a cat lover I wanted to love this book but didn‘t find it enjoyable. Skip it.
