This is a great series for those kids in your class who love a spooky story. IR The childrens version of steven king! There are many books to choose from and even a TV series to match. My favorite was, night of the living dummy, about a ventriloquist doll come to life. I wouldn't necessarily do a lesson on these but rather have them in my classroom library for students to read.

We're All Wonders | R. J. Palacio

A great realistic fiction picture book that I would use as a read aloud. It is another version of WONDER but for a younger age group. Would definitely have a class discussion before and after about respecting others and not judging by appearances. Bought this book for my 3 yr old and she loves the illustrations. ELL would include vocab words in native language or a translated version of text. Teacher/student resource #Lae3414spring19

John Newberry winner, RF discusses many issues pertaining to human connection. My teachers did this as a RA in 5th grade! But I will go with author study. http://loislowry.com is a great resource.

Howl's Moving Castle | Diana Jones
post image

Great SF/ F read. The book was made into a motion picture although, they both differ greatly they are each excellent in their own ways. I would recommend this for IR. UDL, Provide multiple means of representation, provide options for comprehension. EL, teach questioning for clarification. techniques#LAE3414sp19 https://blogs.edweek.org/teachers/work_in_progress/2014/08/teaching_questioning_...

DrSpalding You need a bit more of a summary. What drives you to believe this would be considered science fiction? Check your FlipBook as a resource. 10mo
Carinna.Chin The main reason I would say science fiction is because Howl basically jumps from one dimension or time period to the net using a door. I was initially leaning more towards fantasy. 10mo
