These are the oldest books on my Goodreads TBR. They‘ve been there since 2013 - and I‘m finally getting around to reading them! What are your oldest unread books?

vivastory I like that Galbraith cover a lot more than mine! 6d
LiteraryinLititz I hope you love Aristotle and Dante as much as I did! 6d
janeycanuck I go back to 2006 on my TBR 😳 4d

#GratefulReads Day 6: Perhaps one of the things that I will miss the most in Singapore is the boxes of #BookGiftedToYou - some are even beautifully wrapped and bowed like the one above by my favourite book distributor. Look at the detail above. 💕😭📚📚

This is an amazing historical facts picture book written by Chelsea Clinton and illustrated by Alexandra Bolger! This book describes the challenges that thirteen women have faced and, in an inspirational way, how, by their persistence, became successful. Some of the women mentioned in this book include Harriet Tubman, Ruby Bridges, Helen Keller, Sally Ride, and, Sonia Sotomayor. #UCFLAE3414F19

ccipriati This book sends out a very important message to little girls, and even boys, to never give up on your dreams! This book would be great for a reader‘s theater or even an author's study. You can even use this book as an introduction to a historical feminist lesson in social studies. This book was also nominated for a Goodreads Choice Awards Best Picture Books Award! 4w
ccipriati The UDL Guideline strategy that I have chosen for this book is 7.2, the strategy intended to optimize relevance, value, and authenticity. If I emphasize how each woman in the book didn‘t take no for an answer, fought to be heard and never gave up but, instead, continued to pursue their dreams and, in so doing, help to transform America, then that might inspire my students to follow their dreams no matter what obstacles or setbacks they encounter. 4w
ccipriati The ESOL Strategies that I think would be relevant for this book are 12, 17 & 24. All of these can incorporate further learning through hearing and seeing their expressions. By doing an RT we, as teachers, can make the lessons authentic and bring the materials to life!

I think this might be my new hate read. I‘m perplexed as to why these do so well - even with the famous name behind them.

britt_brooke I liked these books but they needn‘t have been so long. A good editing down would‘ve made them better. 1mo
Verity @britt_brooke oh totally. They should be cozy crime length, no longer. Nearly 500 pages is way too long for a single strand murder mystery. And they need more show and less tell. Also I counted seven “said” on one page at one point. And yet I kept going and I‘ll probably read the next one... 1mo
britt_brooke @Verity For what it‘s worth, the first one was my least favorite. 😬 I wouldn‘t have continued, but I liked the characters. 1mo

This was good. There were parts that lost my interest just a little bit. I think sometimes the “hard-boiled” (darker, grittier) mysteries don‘t always keep my interest as much as other mysteries (maybe not always). This may have been one of those. Overall, though, I still thought it was good. I am planning to try the next in the series, so I‘ll continue for now.

As a self-proclaimed feminist, I thoroughly enjoyed reading Chelsea Clinton‘s NF book about women changing the world despite all odds being against them. I would use this book in the classroom as a readers theatre, as beautifully demonstrated in class the other day. The ESOL strategy I would use would be #28. Provide biographies of significant men and women from different countries. The UDL strategy used would be for perception, offering ways of

ebrown customizing information and offering alternatives for auditory and visual information. #ucflae3414f19 1mo
fabozzia I‘ve never heard of this book but it looks so good! I would absolutely want this for my classroom library! 1mo
