The Three Little Pigs written and illustrated by David Wiesner is a Caldecott Award winner. This is an creative anomaly from the classic story of Three Little Pigs. Instead of being eaten by the big bad wolf, the three little pigs exit the story to a new adventure. This a great book would be great for a RA. #ucflae3414su19

This is an amazing RF book for both students and teachers! First Day Jitters has such a funny twist at the end. This book can be used in the classroom as a RA on the first day of school.

I am Rosa Parks is RF and B kid friendly written by Brad Meltzer and illustrated by Christopher Eliopoulos is a great animated picture book for grades 1st-4th. This is a great book for RA's and IR. Rosa Parks dared to stand up for herself and other African Americans by staying seated, and as a result she helped end public bus segregation and launch the country's Civil Rights movement. #ucflae3414su19

Myiab This website on teacherspayteachers.com supports the strategy because there are multiple activities you can use for this book. This particular one stood out to me https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/I-Am-Rosa-Parks-picture-book-2377866 . UDL 9.3 (develop self-assessment and reflection) and EL 13 (use review activities). This can be used in the classroom during social studies when learning about Rosa Parks and the Civil Rights Movement. (edited) 5mo
DrSpalding Again consult the author website first and this is not realistic fiction. It is completely biography. The format using caricatures looks fake however it‘s just a way to draw young readers to these wonderful true stories of significant historical figures. 4mo

This is a NF book written by Mem Fox. This is a good book for RA‘s. This book could be used in the classroom to teach students even tho we may not look the same, come from the same place, or speak the same languages, we all are the same inside. The illustrations in this book, created by Leslie Staub, displays highly detailed images that illustrates what the text is describing.

DrSpalding Excellent resource for this realistic fiction not nonfiction book. Your UDL and EL need more work however in later posts you were much more detailed. 4mo

This is my all time favorite fiction book. This book has an alphabet rhyme that students will enjoy while also teaching them the alphabet using beautiful illustrations. This book can be used in the classroom for students to practice letter recognition and phonemic awareness with literature. All of the letters (A to Z) race each other up the coconut tree. Will there be enough room for them all to fit? Have to read to find out!

Myiab This book would be perfect for S and RA. S and RA can improve the students listening and processing skills while encouraging and motivating students to read and write. One UDL strategy is 2.1: clarifying vocabulary and symbols. I would use the alphabet as symbols for the El's to follow along. An El strategy that can be used is 17 (use visuals, and audio books). #ucflae3414su19 . (edited) 5mo
