The Last Kids on Earth | Max Brallier
post image
Pickpick

NY Times Bestseller "The Last Kids on Earth" (SF) is written by Max Brallier and illustrated by Douglas Holgate. This illustrated chapter book tells the story of Jack Sullivan who bands together with other local kids to fight the hordes of zombies that have invaded his hometown. This is a great read for IR, especially for students who like SF as opposed to RF. #lae3414sp19

dayuso1 This book can utilize UDL strategy Develop Self Assessment/Reflection (9.3) so that students can reflect on what they would do if they were in that situation. ESOL students need to be asked numerous questions to exercise higher-level thinking (ESOL 36) to understand the plot of the book. 8mo
dayuso1 The resource linked below is a TPT reading comprehension guide for the novel. Includes worksheets for students. https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Last-Kids-on-Earth-Novel-Study-3... 8mo

Miss Rumphius | Barbara Cooney
post image
Pickpick

Caldecott Winner "Miss Rumphius" (RF) is written and illustrated by Barbara Cooney. This colorful storybook tells about an adventurous young Alice who is determined to see the world and make it beautiful. She travels the globe and eventually grows up to be her hometown's "Lupine Lady", known for sowing beautiful flowers all over the seaside. Miss Rumphius makes for a great RA. #lae3414sp19

dayuso1 It's good to implement UDL strategy Promote Understanding Across Languages (2.4). The illustrations in this book are helpful, but students may need additional resources to understand the lengthy story. This is supported by ESOL 22 - giving students enough time for ELLs to respond to questions. 8mo
dayuso1 The extension activity linked below is a flower drawing tutorial site for students to learn how to draw their favorite flowers, possibly including lupines. http://www.hellokids.com/r_1962/drawing-for-kids/drawing-tutorials-step-by-step/... 8mo
DrSpalding Late...love this book. 8mo
Carinna.Chin This looks like such a cute book and would probably be good for Earth day!! 8mo

Flotsam | David Wiesner
post image
Pickpick

David Weisner is the creative illustrator of the Caldecott winning wordless picture book "Flotsam" (SF). The bright pictures tell the story of a boy at the beach who finds a camera washed up on shore. He develops the film and finds pictures of the fantastical things it comes across throughout the ocean deep and many years. This is a good Storytelling option because teachers get to help students fill in the story for themselves. #lae3414sp19

dayuso1 A good UDL strategy is Use Multiple Media for Communication (5.1). The class can explore different media formats to see what's actually on the ocean floor. Teachers can help ELLs by placing students in small groups to let them learn from each other(ESOL 2). 8mo
dayuso1 The resource linked below has several extension activity ideas for this picture book. This includes creating a glossary of ocean-related terms, or retelling the story from another character's POV. https://www.teachingideas.co.uk/library/books/flotsam 8mo

Carinna.Chin I love this! This would be great to incorporate science and an ocean theme in the class. Great resource. 8mo

Journey | Aaron Becker
post image
Pickpick

"Journey" (F) by Aaron Becker is a wordless picture book that follows a young girl who draws her way into a fantasy world with her red crayon. The girl explores the kingdom, finds a beautiful pink bird and fights to free it from enemies. Without words, this is a great choice for Storytelling. Teachers get to ask students what they think is happening, teaching them to use visual context clues. #lae3414sp19

dayuso1 One UDL strategy that may be helpful is Offer Alternatives for Visual Info (1.3). Teachers can project pages onto screen using a projector in order to enlarge illustrations for the visually impaired. ELLs can further grasp this wordless story concept by drawing pictures of their own journeys. This meets the strategy "Encourage the Use of Drawings to Understand Concepts" (ESOL 30) 8mo
dayuso1 The resource linked below has several extension activity suggestions to spark student imaginations. This includes asking students to tell the story from the boy's perspective, or to create captions for the pages. https://www.teachingideas.co.uk/library/books/quest 8mo

ha_kaye I love how you included a wordless picture book in your selection of listy posts! They are great tools for inference and comprehension (: 8mo
Edenmonet This sounds like such a great book especially because of it having no words! Adding this to my book list! 8mo
Carinna.Chin Oh my goodness!!! This book looks amazing. I love that it has no words because an ELL could flip through without the stress of reading. 8mo

"I Survived the Attacks of September 11, 2001" (HF) by Lauren Tarshis is the 6th book in her I Survived series, which tell of important historical events from a fictional kid's perspective. Lucas is at an NYC fire station during 9/11, which changes everything. This is a good book to use for AS because Tarshis has such a successful book series as well as other works. A resource to use would be her website, www.laurentarshis.com . #lae3414sp19

dayuso1 Teachers can use UDL strategy "Optimize Access to Tools and Assistive Technology" (4.2) by allowing students to use computers and iPads to research the historical context of this book. Teachers can also use KWL charts with all students including ELLs to track what students know, want to know and ultimately learn about the historical event (ESOL 50). 8mo
dayuso1 As an extension resource, teachers can show this kid-friendly overview of the events of 9/11. https://youtu.be/MTJGB5XEUkA 8mo

"Manfish" (B) written by Jennifer Berne and illustrated by Eric Puybaret is a nonfiction picture book telling the story of Jacques Cousteau and his contributions to marine biology. The pictures show how Jacques grows up to merge his love for inventing, film and the ocean. He invents the aqualung and brings underwater footage to the world. Great option for Storytelling because of it's clear plot and great pictures. #lae3414sp19

dayuso1 Teachers can use UDL strategy Optimize Choice and Autonomy (7.1). Students would write a story about where they would go and what they would do if they were a scuba diver. Teachers can help all students including ELLs by having the class physically pretend they are scuba divers in the ocean, which also helps ELLs to grasp the concept (ESOL 18). 8mo
dayuso1 As an extension resource, teachers can show clips from Cousteau's actual films. An example is linked below, found easily through YouTube. https://youtu.be/hM9pa5JQmz0 8mo

Mmw2478 Students would love this book in the classroom. I like the YouTube clips also. 8mo
Carinna.Chin This would be a perfect way to integrate science!! Love it! The title is definitely a hook. 8mo

The children's book "Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus" (RF) is written and illustrated by Mo Willems. This is a hilarious book for elementary students as they get to interact with the narrator, who is an irresponsible pigeon who begs to drive a bus against the bus driver's orders. Students have the opportunity to tell the pigeon no, which doesn't stop him from asking a million times. Fun for kids and teachers, especially for an RA. #lae3414sp19

dayuso1 This book would benefit from UDL strategy "Offer Ways of Customizing the Display of Info" (1.1). Teachers would display the pages of the book on PPT or projector screen. Teachers can also offer reference materials for ELLs such as actual pictures of pigeons, buses, bus drivers, etc., Before the story is read (ESOL 29). 8mo
dayuso1 This fun resource is an extension activity for young students to do a guided drawing of their own pigeon, and decide what he isn't allowed to do. https://www.kindergartenworks.com/kindergarten-teaching-ideas/writing/dont-let-t... 8mo

"The Tale of Despereaux" (F) is written by Kate DiCamillo and illustrsted by Timothy Basil Ering. It tells the story of a mouse who lives in a kingdom where there is emnity between mice and humans. Despereaux is caught in the middle of a plot against the Princess and is faced with the reality that not all of life is like a fairytale. However, his adventures show how kindness and peacemaking can bring enemies together. Great for LC. #lae3414sp19

dayuso1 Teachers can implement UDL strategy "Build Fluencies and Graduated Levels of Support for Practice/Performance" (5.3). The teacher can ask comprehension questions about Despereaux's struggles with varied higher level thinking requirements; students would answer some as a class, some in pairs and some independently. Teachers can also simplify reading and instructions with slower speech for ELLs (ESOL 14). 8mo
dayuso1 A great resource for this book is linked below. Scholastic provides several comprehension questions to get students thinking about Despereaux and his world. https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/tale-despereau... 8mo

Where in the Wild by David M. Schwartz and Yarl Schy is a NF PB all about camouflage. The information is given through P which I think makes this book even more unique. Students will have so much fun trying to find the animals in the pictures. I would use this as a RA, but also have the book available so students can look at it up close! #LAE3414Sp19

C.Austin This resource is a detailed lesson plan to go along with this book. It provides questions and an activity to further the understanding of camouflage and why it is necessary for animals. https://research.amnh.org/burroughs/teacher_guides/where_in_the_wild.pdf ESOL Strategy 4: Link lesson topic to students‘ prior knowledge. UDL Principle 2.1: Clarify vocabulary and symbols. 8mo

The Tiger Rising | Kate DiCamillo
post image
Pickpick

The Tiger Rising by Kate DiCamillio is a RF novel with so many themes and hidden messages. This book is perfect for LC because your students WILL want to discuss what they think about the book. The story is so moving and a fantastic read! I 10/10 recommend this book! #LAE3414Sp19

C.Austin This resource is from Scholastic. I think the discussion questions will help LC students if they need a starting point to get the discussion rolling! https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/tiger-rising-d... ESOL Strategy 2: Promote cooperation (small groups). UDL Principle 3.2: Highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships. 8mo
Ms.Bursey Kate Dicamillo is an amazing author. I love all of her books❤️ 8mo
