Pickpick

This F book by Tedd Arnold is about a boy named Buzz and his pet fly named Fly Guy. This cute book follows the two as they try to find a pet for Fly Guy. I would use this book for a cute and fun RA. A great resource is https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/books/a-pet-for-fly-guy-by-tedd-arnold/. UDL 7.3: Minimize threats and distractions and ESOL Strategy 47: Use information gap activities #ucflae3414f19

By author Mem Fox and illustrated by Leslie Stub, this Caldecott winner, RF book is great for any grade. In this PB, it shows how people all over the world may look different, speak other languages, live in different looking houses, does not mean we are different. Everyone still hurts the same, laugh the same, and love the same. It is a great message to teach any student at any level. #ucflae3414f19

Lrobertson This book is great for RA. Having students connect text to self and text to world. Have students make graphic organizers, like a Venn diagram, and compare and contrast the other students in their class with them.

Lrobertson In the classroom: RA. Showing the students the short video on youtube( https://youtu.be/9z08SD5iRuk ) before would give students some prior knowledge.
