Oh the Places You'll Go! is a poetry book by Dr. Seuss that shows all the places a person can go through their lives. It teaches about setting goals and nurtures a mindset of growth in children. Great book!

A good source to continue discussion about the book as well as some activities that expand on the lesson that the book imparts.

The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear is a MF picture book about a mouse who discovers an enormous strawberry that he wants to keep for himself and away from a big hungry bear.

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is a children‘s RF book about a boy named Alexander and how a day he has goes from bad to worse. I would highly recommend it for children and how it can be relatable to anyone that just seems to have a bad day.

MarkZalewski This website is a great source for activities that can be done in class with the book 1mo
MarkZalewski The UDL principle I would apply to this would be, Highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas,
and relationships (3.2). The book helps students to understand the idea that not every day is going to be a good one, and it‘s okay to have a bad day.
