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 7mo

The Crossover | Kwame Alexander

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/ 7mo

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. 7mo
DrSpalding While Scholastic is obviously a wonderful selection, please consider using the poets website as it is amazing! 7mo

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 7mo
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

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 7mo
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

When I tell you I absolutely love fiction, picture The Day the crayons quit by Drew Daywalt The book is good for a fun and interactive read-aloud setting out to discuss the day these crayons were fed up with being used. The book has won a Goodreads choice award and also promoted the learning and understanding of colors. The UDL principle is 3.1 and the ESOL STRATEGY is 12. Teach two objectives, learning and content.

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 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.

El Deafo written by Cece Bell is one of my ABSOLUTE favorites to read❤️. This Newbery Honor Book is a must-have in your classroom. El Deafo is an LC read and is considered fiction. In El Deafo we meet Cece Bell who has suffered from hearing loss at a very young age, and her experiences with the Phonic Ear. The Phonic Ear is a hearing aid that allows her to hear things to a depth that sometimes she doesn‘t want to hear. Ultimately Cece turns into

Ms.Bursey El Deafo and just wants to feel loved and fit in. She begins to pave the way for herself and meets the friend that she‘s always wanted and was hopeful for. This book is a good read for a literature circle for my future classroom. And during each meeting we would have a class discussion. Asking questions like “how do you think you would feel if you were In Cece‘s shoes?” “If you could have an alter ego who and what would it be and why?” The UDL 9mo

One Crazy Summer | Rita Williams-Garcia
post image
Pickpick

In the HF book called One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia is really a gem. This Newbery honor book the story takes place during 1968 in Oakland, California during the time of a lot of civil action. The main characters Delphine, Vonetta and Fern are put on a plane from Brooklyn to Oakland to stay with their estranged mom. During it all society is changing and men with guns are shouting black power. And over the course of the next four weeks

Ms.Bursey the girls learn about the revolution , really only wanting to know where their mother abandoned them. They learn more than what they bargained for. I am currently reading this book in my LC group and I love it. As a pre-service teacher I would use this book as part of an LC (Literature Circle) group. The book I feel makes students aware of the civil rights acts and gives them a sort of awareness of history. The UDL strategies in the book are 3.2 9mo
Ms.Bursey and 5.3 . The ESOL strategies used are 2: promote cooperation (small groups) and 6: Continually monitor students‘ comprehension. 9mo
DrSpalding This is a great example of historical fiction. Use literature circles and historical fiction titles in your future classroom to teach reading comprehension and social studies all in one. 7mo
