"It is a wound that bleeds when any hand but that of love touches it, and even then must bleed again, though not in pain."

So many parts of this book I marked as favourites, but I think that this one might be the one I liked the best. ??❤️?????#oscarwilde #nonfic #sorrow

This RF, Batchelder winner is a cute story about 4 siblings who have an ill grandmother, and make a pact to keep her from dying. The story tells a moving message about the value of life and the importance of being able to say goodbye. This story would be best as an IR because while it tells a moving message, it may not be something you want to read aloud to your students because it can make them sad. https://www.teachingbooks.net/tb.cgi?tid=50684

leximcmillin This resource contains resources such as customizable maps, and it shows the text complexity of the book. A UDL principle that could go with this book is 3.3, Guide information processing and visualization. This is because some of the story may be hard for children to understand being that they are so young. An EL strategy that could go with this book is 6. Continually monitor students comprehension. #ucflae3414f19 1mo
DrSpalding Sadly, this is a part of life. I agree with your independent reading teaching strategy. I want to read this. 5d

Not trying to bring gloom to your Monday, but these Top 6 picks have been on my mind recently. My grandmother passed away a little over a week ago, and while I'm coping well I often find solace in books and illustrations. In that respect, there are my Top 6 picture books on dealing with death (and family).

My tagged book, Cry Heart, but Never Break has been a favorite since I discovered it a few years ago and is a source of comfort at sad times.

“I‘m never going to eat again, until Grandma and Grandpa get undivorced.” This RF book by Eve Bunting tells the story of two little girls who are told their grandparent‘s are getting a divorce and learn that they will still be a family, still see both grandparents, and learn it may not be such a bad thing. Sweet story about divorce and telling young children. Great as a RA. #lae3414sp19.

Mmw2478 UDL Principles 8.3,2.1,2.4,3.1- foster collaboration & community, clarify vocabulary & symbols, promote understanding across languages, and activate background knowledge. 8mo
Mmw2478 ESOL Strategies 3, 4, 10-encourage self talk, link lesson topic to students‘ prior knowledge would be covered with this book. 8mo
kelseymccormick @Mmw2478 Personally, I have never read one of Eve Bunting‘s books. However, I loved the story you used for your storytelling presentation. Additionally, you provided a wonderful high quality resource. I liked how the resource provided activities for multiple books by the author. Great job! 8mo
Mmw2478 Read one!!! 8mo

Wow!

This volume address death and loss for children. And it does so with

Humor - the kids try to keep Death awake too long to take grandma by plying him with endless refills of his favorite drink (hot black coffee)

Insight - Death wants to help the kids understand why this is happening, so he tells them a parable about how death is what makes life special

Compassion - Death takes care not to scare the kids & leaves his axe outside the house

Late, again. #sisforseptember #sorrow is a quote from a really good book. Dig the minimalist art I found for it.
