“The children all waved from the door of the school. “Don't cry, Mom and Dad; kindergarten is cool!““

blurb

I would use this in my classroom as an ice breaker for the first day of school to show the kids that what they are feeling is okay.

“The Night Before Kindergarten“ does a really good job of showing the different emotions you could have before starting school and on the first day through the pictures. It is also very appropriate for this age group because everyone has the before and first day of school jitters.

The Pigeon HAS to go to School (F) by Mo Willems is about a Pigeon who really doesn‘t want to go to school. I think children will relate to this book and find it enjoyable to read. I would have a child who likes to present give a DR to the class. The UDL guideline I would use is 2.4 (have it printed in other languages that were used in my classroom) and the ESOL strategy I would use is number 20.

maciforster I love the read aloud of the author reading the book! The topic also seems like something the students would love. 1mo

The Kissing Hand | Audrey Penn

Pickpick

The Kissing Hand, written by Audrey Penn and illustrated by Ruth E. Harper and Nancy M. Leak, is a F that features Chester the raccoon and his mom. Chester is terrified to start school and being away from his mother and his home. Chester's mom tells him the secret of The Kissing Hand to comfort Chester. This New York Times Best Selling Book would be a great choice for a SR where the teacher can model fluent reading. #UCFLAE3414F19

JRone ESOL strategy #4 Link lesson topic to students‘ prior knowledge and UDL strategy 7.2 Optimize relevance, value, and authenticity would be great for this book because a student can relate to how Chester feels.

https://www.cpalms.org/Public/PreviewResourceLesson/Preview/62230 is a lesson plan that uses prior knowledge and guiding questions help the students comprehend the book. It also adds A Pocket Full of Kisses as another book to use.

DrSpalding Great idea to use the Florida Department of Education lesson website resource. 1w

First Day Jitters | Julie Danneberg

Erinehart #ucflae3414f19 First Day Jitters is an adorable RF children‘s PB written by Julie Danneberg. It's about a teacher who just doesn't want to go in for her first day of school. While reading this, you don't know it's referring to a teachers until the very last page. I think this book would be great for a RA on the first day of school for a class k-3 to calm the students nerves. (edited) 1mo
Erinehart https://www.weareteachers.com/first-day-jitters-activities/ this website is a great resource for different activities relating to the first day of school that would go great with this book. 1mo
Erinehart A UDL strategy that I found would be great for this text is 1.1 “Offer ways of customizing the display of information .“
A ESOL that would work with this text is #14 “Simplify your speech by making it slower and redundant“. This is very important for RA, because without the students actually seeing the text it is important as the teacher that you are delivering it in a way they can understand.

DrSpalding I will read Last Day Blues on our last day. This certainly should be a read aloud on the first day of school. Great use of this high-quality resource. 1w

Chrysanthemum | Kevin Henkes

“Chrysanthemum” by Kevin Henkes is a sad, but fulfilling F story about a young mouse named Chrysanthemum who absolutely loves her beautiful, long name! She begins to get made fun of by a few of her classmates which results in her despising her name. This Notable Children‘s Award winning book would make a great RA to teach good morals. #UCFLAE3414F19

abbie-cadabbie The lesson plan I chose includes a fun, tactile way to teach “how unkind words can wrinkle your heart.” It includes a during and post activity for younger students to enjoy. https://heartmindonline.org/resources/lesson-plan-teaching-kindness-with-chrysan... 1mo
abbie-cadabbie The UDL strategy I chose is to develop self-assessment and reflection (9.3) because this story should help students become kinder and more considerate of other‘s feelings. The ESOL strategy I chose is to encourage self-talk (positive thinking) (3) 1mo
