Wonder | R. J. Palacio
post image
Pickpick

Wonder by R.J. Palacio is a RF N that teaches students to be kind. Auggie is 10 yrs old & has never been to school. He‘s not exactly your average kid. Auggie was born with a deformity, causing him to have several surgeries. It‘s now time for Auggie to enter 5th grade at a school with other children. He slowly becomes friends with a few students, or so he thinks. Friends don‘t talk bad about each other, right? This one pulls at the heart strings.

SarahWynne https://www.georgiastandards.org/resources/Documents/GOSA-5th-Grade-ELA-Unit-Pla... The link provided is a unit plan, outlining discussion questions. Modifying it a little bit could make it easily usable for LC. Strategies:

The Magic School Bus: Lost in the Solar System by Joanna Cole & Bruce Degen is a F/ NF hybrid PB that could be done as GR. In this book of the collection, Ms. Frizzle uses the bus as a rocket ship, blasting the students into space and teaching them all they need to know along the way. From how craters on the moon were formed, to what Saturns rings are made of, the students are fully submerged in a lesson all about space. #UCFLAE3414F17

The Dot | Peter Reynolds

The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds is a RF PB that can be a RA on or around Dot Day! Vashti doesn‘t believe she can draw. Her teacher tells her, “Just make a mark and see where it takes you...now sign it” Those inspiring words released Vashti‘s creativity of her very own dot art, all featured in the school art show. This book reminds us all to “make a mark” and see where it takes us. #UCFLAE3414F17

Where the Sidewalk Ends is a collection of P with drawings both by Shel Silverstein. Many strategies could be used for this book, but I chose GR. The poem “Sick” (oh 58-59) is about a girl named Peggy Ann McKay. She has many reasons of why she can‘t go to school... until she realizes that it‘s Saturday! Of course she then wants to go out and play! #UCFLAE3414F17

SarahWynne http://www.shelsilverstein.com/media/learning/resource_files/Giving_Tree_Anniver... The authors website offers several different ways to utilize these poems. I chose “Sick.” These standards are met: CCSS RL.1.3., RL.2.3., RL.3.3., RL.4.3.

UDL: 3.3 Guide information processing, visualization, and manipulation

ESOL: 30. Encourage the use of diagrams and drawings as aids to identify concepts and seeing relationships

Edgar Allan Poe‘s Pie is a P/NF collection written by J. Patrick Lewis and illustrated by Michael Slack that could be used as an AS or as a RA for math puzzles. This book provides poems inspired by other famous poems/ poets, but these particular poems have math problems intertwined in them. The back of the book provides short bios about the poets included in this book. #UCFLAE3414F17

Independent Publisher award winning F PB, What Do You Do With An Idea? By Kobi Yamada& illustrated by Mae Besom, could be read to students of all ages as a RA. Charmingly illustrated, this story follows a little boy and his idea. Afraid of what people would think, he almost abandoned this idea, but soon realized he should give it all of his attention. After it became everything he ever imagined, he reminds us that ideas change the world.

By now, we all know the F Caldecott PB Don‘t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! By Mo Willems. Read as a RA with engaging voices and gestures, students will love this story. A bus driver specifically let‘s us know that we shouldn‘t let the pigeon drive the bus, but he won‘t stop asking! Disappointed after all of the begging, he finally gives up once the bus driver returns. Adorably silly, but could make for a great start to a writing/retelling lesson!

SarahWynne http://www.teachingideas.co.uk/library/books/dont-let-the-pigeon-drive-the-bus This link includes a number of ways to build upon this story, including having students retell the story from the pigeons pov. These strategies support it...

Waiting | Kevin Henkes

Waiting by Kevin Henkes is a F Caldecott and Geisel Honor PB and would make a great RA. Waiting and being patient is something we all strive to teach our students quickly. This adorably illustrated book is 5 friends who do almost nothing except for wait. The owl, pig, bear, puppy, and rabbit are always waiting..one for the rain, one for the moon, and one for no reason at all. #UCFLAE3414F17

Red Sings from Treetops: A year in colors by Joyce Sidman & illustrated by Pamela Zagarenski is a beautiful P Caldecott Honor picture book.

Sparky! By Jenny Offill&Chris Appelhans is an adorable F (or RF if you think sloths could be pets) PB that won the Charlotte Zolotow Award in 2015. Have you ever begged for a pet, but your parents say no way? That‘s just what happened in this story, except the mother finally agrees based on these criteria: as long as it doesn‘t need to be walked or bathed or fed. So one inventive little girl finds just the pet... a sloth that she names Sparky.

The Mitten is a TL PB (Ukrainian Folktale adapted and illustrated by Jan Brett) best read as a RA or S. This is a beautifully illustrated story of Nicki who wants his grandma to knit him white mittens. She warns that he may lose them in the snow, but he persists. As he plays, he loses one. Several animals come across the mitten and wiggle their way in to stay warm. When Nicki finally finds it, it was not the same size that Baba originally made.
