I think I‘m becoming a Harry Potter fanatic because this Modern Fantasy book titles Harry Potter and the Prisoner Of Azkaban is amazing. The book is apart of the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. I see the book as being either a literature circle book where students‘ can read and discuss the book amongst peers or simply an independent read where students can have this book under their belt. And it really is an interesting read and good addition

Ms.Bursey to your classroom library. The UDL principle I would use that aligns with this book is 3.4 and the ESOL strategy is 3. Encourage self-talk (positive thinking). #lae3414spr19 8mo

The Crossover | Kwame Alexander
post image
Pickpick

Listen this realistic fiction book titled The Crossover by Kwame Alexander is hot 🥵. I loved how relatable the story is. In the book you meet two boys both brothers who play basketball. On the surface it looks so simple, but in fact is way more complex than its plain look. The Crossover has been awarded the Newbery honor medal and the Coretta Scott King award. I particularly love this book as a LC book. Where students can discuss amongst each

Ms.Bursey other parts of the book the enjoyed or didn‘t enjoy so much. The UDL principle that would align is 3.2 and the ESOL STRATEGY is 2. Promote cooperation (small groups). https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/books/crossover-the-by-kwame-alexander/ 8mo

In the Shel Silverstein picture poetry book you are taken to many places mentally when discussing the text and the drawings within the text. The book is good for readers theater activities and opens your eyes and tickles your mind. The UDL principle is 3.2 and the ESOL STRATEGY is 8. Use direct instruction: Modeling( explaining, scaffolding, name the strategy and how to use it.

audrey.wilson This book looks so cute!! I love your source and book choice, can‘t wait to read it. 8mo
DrSpalding While Scholastic is obviously a wonderful selection, please consider using the poets website as it is amazing! 7mo

Robert Louis Stevenson | Frances Schoonmaker, Lucy Corvino

In this assorted picture poetry book by Robert Louis Stevenson all poems are thoughtfully put out there and illustrated perfectly. The book makes a good readers theater activity, each poem is different and can be represented differently as well. The UDL principle is 2.2 and the ESOL STRATEGY is 17 Provide contextual support through audio visuals, models, demonstrations, realia, body language and facial expressions.

ally11301 This is such a cute cover for the book! I hope the rest of the pages are as cute and colorful as the cover. I love how you decided that you would use this as a RT! It sounds so much fun 8mo
DrSpalding I am thrilled you selected this book as it is a series of books for young students. Wrong #. 7mo

Brown Girl Dreaming | Jacqueline Woodson
post image
Pickpick

In the Coretta Scott king award winner novel by Jaqueline Woodson is a 2014 adolescent novel told in verse by Woodson. It discusses the author‘s childhood and an African American growing up in the 1960s in South Carolina and New York. The poetry/ auto-biography shows what it was like to live in Times back then and really tests students background and prop knowledge to make in-text to real life connections. The UDL principle is 3.1

Ms.Bursey and the ESOL STRATEGY is 4. Link lesson topic to students‘ prior knowledge. https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/books/brown-girl-dreaming-by-jacqueline-wood... #lae3414spr19 8mo
DrSpalding This is a beautiful book! I am not sure that English learner strategy for is the best one to align to this particular title. Many children do not have prior knowledge of this time period. 7mo

In the non-fiction picture book by Stacy Mcanulty you learn about our beautiful planet, planet Earth and what it has been up to the last 4.54 billion. The book is a good read aloud book and can be discoed during the science block of the school day or even on Earth Day to promote awareness. The UDL principle is 3.2 and the ESOL STRATEGY is 4. Link lesson topic to students‘ prior knowledge.

DrSpalding Science/social studies/English language arts… Great book selection. More detail needed. 7mo

The New York Times best-seller biography novel about the girl that was shot by the Taliban and stood for education is a touching literature circle book, students can discuss amongst their peers the drive and motivation Malala had despite the things that happened to her. The UDL principle is 3.2 and the ESOL STRATEGY is 3. Encourage self-talk (positive thinking)

The Giving Tree | Shel Silverstein
post image
Pickpick

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein is a read aloud picture book. The book is classic, sensitive parable about selflessness and represents positive role models and representation. The text allows you to see the underlying message of sometimes we take loved ones for granted. The UDL principle for this text is 3.1 and the ESOL strategy is 11. Place language in a meaningful context.

I absolutely love the Modern Fantasy novel by J.K. Rowling. The book is good for a literature circle group that can discuss the book and it‘s very controversial matter. The Chamber Of Secrets begins, as did the Philosopher‘s Stone with Harry once again at home with the dreadful Dursley‘s. There are mysterious happenings at Hogwarts and Harry, assisted by his staunch friends set about discovering the truth to the Chamber of Secrets and look for

Ms.Bursey clues to help them understand the attacks on the children at the schools. The UDL principle for this book is 2.2 and the ESOL strategy is 7. Show students how to use graphic organizers like semantic mapping and imaging. https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/books/harry-potter-and-the-chamber-of-secret... #lae3414spr19 8mo
audrey.wilson The Chamber of Secrets (the movie) was my very first experience into the world of Harry Potter. I really like the Scholastic link, what a great resource/lesson! 8mo
DrSpalding For all of your Harry Potter titles… I love these books and believe they have inspired many children to read. 7mo

In the Modern Fantasy novel you spend way more time in Harry‘s world. The book is seen more so in a script format and basically states that even things that are being done for the right reasons can still go horribly wrong. The book is a very good Literature circle group, kids can discuss in a small group format the book and how they felt about it. The UDL strategy is 3.2 and the ESOL strategy is 10. Teach think, pair and share strategies in

DrSpalding This description just not tell me that you thoroughly read the book, which I am sure you did. Wrong #.Scholastic is a High-quality website. 7mo
