Earthdance | Joanne Ryder, Norman Gorbaty
post image
Pickpick

Earthdance by Joanne Ryder and illustrated by Norman Gorbaty is an incredible piece of P dedicated to appreciating our home, Earth. It allows the students to imagine what it would be like to be the Earth and to remind them the importance of protecting our home, hence why a DR would be an ideal teaching strategy with this book. The author and illustrator managed to bring this beautiful poem to life, all while emphasizing a truly important message.

karlasanabria1 #UCFLAE3414F19 An ideal teacher resource for this PB is https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/books/earth-dance-by-joanne-ryder/. The UDL Strategy that would best align with this book is clarifying vocabulary and symbols (2.1). The ESOL Strategy I‘ve chosen for this particular book is teaching technical vocabulary supporting key concepts (5). 12m

Hello Lighthouse | Sophie Blackall
post image
Pickpick

Written and illustrated by Sophie Blackall, this HF book is a Caldecott Awarding winner. This book follows the life of a lighthouse keeper. His daily chores, missing life at home with his wife, and some exciting and a little nerve-wrecking things along the way. The illustration in this book makes it a great book for a DR. This site links a read-aloud of this book https://www.rif.org/literacy-central/book/hello-lighthouse. #ucflae3414f19

Annie and Helen | Deborah Hopkinson
post image
Pickpick

Annie and Helen by Deborah Hopkinson and Raul Colón is a B story. It shares the wonderful relationship of Helen Keller and her teacher Annie Sullivan. This would be a great AS story because Hopkinson is an amazing author that has written quality books. I think a great resource to pair with this book is an informational article like #ucflae3414f19

cassandram https://www.perkins.org/history/people/anne-sullivan?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI2-2JotPj5.... It also would be great to include clips from the movie miracle worker to show the relationship between Annie and Helen. The ESOL strategy I would be applying is 28 by providing a biography of significant women. And the UDL strategy would be 3.1 by supplying background knowledge of the two through the other articles. 13h
YvetteE A great choice for your biography! 13h
Tinks Love the bond that the teacher and student have with one another. Nice post and cute picture. now

Hush! a Thai Lullaby | Minfong Ho, Mingfong Ho
post image
Pickpick

Hush! A Thai Lullaby by Minfong Ho is a beautiful P book. It shares a receptive rhyme of a mother telling animals to hush because her child is sleeping nearby. It won a Caldecott in 1997. This would be a great storytelling picture book because of the variety of animals presented and the fun rhythm. #ucflae3414f19

cassandram This awesome source http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/theme-poems-using... as a guide to apply to this book on how to incorporate the 5 senses within poetry. The UDL I would use is 4.1 by varying the method of navigation, storytelling and 5 senses. The ESOL strategy I would use is 18 by incorporating Total Physical response. #ucflae3414f19 14h
YvetteE Students will enjoy learning with poetry. This is a great lesson plan! 13h

Love You Forever | Robert N Munsch
post image
Pickpick

This RF book is another one by my absolute favorite author, Robert Munsch. This book absolutely must be approached with caution when reading to children as it deals with the heavy themes of aging, illness, and death. This story follows a mother and son as they grow through their years and face many changes, although one thing remains constant for them: their love for each other #ucflae3414f19

JennaMichelleCohn Not-so-fun fact: Munsch wrote this book in honor of the two children they lost to miscarriages. https://www.teachingchildrenphilosophy.org/BookModule/LoveYouForever this website, along with https://www.edu.gov.mb.ca/k12/cur/physhlth/hs_k-8/gr2less3part1.pdf help educators teach students about the importance of love and kindness, as well as the harder things like death and loss. 15h
JennaMichelleCohn To help guide along with the above sites, UDL 9.3, “Develop self-assessment and reflection,” works well here. ESOL strategy 42, “Have students use timelines to arrange and sequence important facts and information,” would be great here since the story takes place over roughly 50 or 60 years. This book would be great for RA or S. 15h
YvetteE What a touching story and background. Thank you for sharing. 13h
Tinks This book looks like it will be an adorable read. Love the post. now

This well-known poetry book written and illustrated by Shel Silverstein is a great way to get kids interested in poetry. Typically when we think of poetry, we think of it being too boring, advanced, and confusing. When I was a kid, I was introduced to Shel Silverstein books and found them to be the complete opposite. These poetry collections would be a great way to introduce kids to poetry and lead into a poetry unit. #ucflae3414f19

JennaMichelleCohn http://www.shelsilverstein.com/learning/#lessons-and-activiti... these resources are from Shel Silverstein‘s website directly. Here, he includes 18 resources divided into three categories: lessons and activities, event kits, and drawing booklets. I personally like the 2013 Poetry Workshop Kit. I think it‘d be a great way for students to learn about poetry while also having fun. 15h
JennaMichelleCohn ESOL strategy 11, “Place language in meaningful context,” would work well here, because poetry is all about the language, even if it doesn‘t rhyme. UDL 1.1, “Offer ways of customizing the display of information,” would also work well here because Silverstein‘s poems are all over the place and poetry is very flexible in terms of how the words are displayed. This collection would be great for IR. (edited) 15h
YvetteE I love this book! I so enjoyed his books when I was younger. It was nice to take a break from all the seriousness of life and live in Shel's fun mind. 13h

She Persisted | Chelsea Clinton
post image
Pickpick

She Persisted, written by Chelsea Clinton and illustrated by Alexandra Boiger, is a eye-opening and inspiring B PB that could be a great S book for your elementary classrooms. Clinton goes over thirteen strong women who helped shape our world into the world we have today. These women persisted and never let anyone tell them they could not do it. Read along and learn about these incredible women! #UCFLAE3414F19

Camrynm The EL strategy I would use would be 24: Incorporate the culture and the language of second language learners in your curriculum. In this book, these women come from all over the world, so maybe one of your students is from the same country as one of these 13 women and can share facts about their country. The UDL principle I would use would be 1.3: Offer alternatives for visual information. Students can watch videos on each country. 17h
Camrynm Here is a great resource that you can use in your classroom that goes with this PB: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/She-Persisted-Womens-History-Month-B... 17h
YvetteE I plan on using this book in my library! Students MUST understand that women are adverse and amazingly strong! Thank you to Chelsea Clinton for highlighting female contributions and triumphs. 13h

This outstanding RF N titled “Merci Suarez Changes Gears“ written by Meg Medina is a Newbery Medal award winner and would be a perfect IR in your 3-8th grade classrooms. Merci Suarez is beginning 6th grade and she realizes that this year will be anything but easy. Follow Merci on her journey to survive the 6th grade and her family troubles. This book is a great eye-opener for all kids and teaches important values. #UCFLAE3414F19

Camrynm The EL strategy I would use would be 10: Teach think, pair and share strategies in cooperative groups. While students are reading this for their IR, students can share their thoughts on the book in a cooperative group. The UDL principle I would use would be 2.4: Promote understanding across languages. Supporting each other's different languages is very important and it is important to recognize the student's different languages in the classroom. 17h
Camrynm Here is a great resource to use with this novel: http://www.theclassroombookshelf.com/2018/10/merci-suarez-changes-gears/ 17h

Giggle, Giggle, Quack | Doreen Cronin
post image
Pickpick

Giggle, Giggle, Quack by Doreen Cronin is a comical F picture book that can entice any young reader into following the storyline of a farm duck that can act in mischievous ways. Farmer Brown is going out of town on vacation, so his brother Bob is in charge..or so you‘d believe. To further engage the students in the storyline, a RT would be a innovative way to promote comprehension. #UCFLAE3414F19

TristanPool UDL 1.1 and EL 6 would be appropriate for Giggle, Giggle, Quack as students are exposed to a new way to view and comprehend the storyline through their RT. Below is a link to a discussion guide that can be used to actively engaged students in understanding the characters found throughout the book: http://www.scholastic.com/browse/collateral.jsp?id=32427 17h
