The One and Only Ivan | Katherine Applegate
post image
Pickpick

I would use this realistic fiction novel in my classroom for a literature circle. The book has won the sunshine State young readers award. This novel is about Ivan, and easy-going gorilla. He lives at the exit 8 big top mall, he has a custom to being watched by humans in his glass cage. He barely thinks about his past life in the jungle, rather, he spends his time thinking about his friends Stella and Bob.

SofiaRoselli This is a great lesson plan to use in your classroom for the book. It provides standards, resources, modeling and extension activities. This lesson plan includes background knowledge which covers you UDL 3.1. I would be using ESOL strategy 2 by placing students in literature circles as a small group.

DrSpalding Awesome book! Wrong #! LAE3414sp19 is correct. 8mo
DrSpalding Wonderful resource from a quality source. When animals speak in a book, it cannot be considered realistic fiction. What would the correct genre be? 8mo
hkeiger Huge fan of the One and Only Ivan!! Thank you for the lesson plan! Looks great :) 8mo

The Giving Tree | Shel Silverstein
post image
Pickpick

I would use this poetry book in the classroom for a read aloud. Shel Silverstein won the children‘s literature Legacy award for this book. This book is about a boy who would go to the giving tree every day to eat her apples, swing from her branches, or slide down her trunk and the tree was happy. But as the boy grew older he began to want more from the tree and the tree kept giving.

SofiaRoselli
I found this lesson plan which I thought I would use my classroom. It includes content standards, expectations, goals, outline and assessments. By going over the goals and expectations in the lesson plan, I would be using UDL strategy 6.1, guide appropriate goal-setting. While reading the story, I would simplify my speech by making it slower and redundant to accommodate ESOL students.

This folklore/traditional literature picture but would be used in my classroom for a read aloud. The book is awarded the Pura Belpre for the vivacious illustrations. This book is about grandma Beetle and senor Calavera. When Senor Calavera arrives unexpectedly at grandma Beatles door he request that she leaves with him right away but grandma beetle is not yet ready so she trickes him to be able to stay longer to be to see her family.

SofiaRoselli I found this lesson plan to use in the classroom for multiple activities. It includes curriculum areas, multiple standards, objectives, resources and a variety of activities for the classroom. 8mo
SofiaRoselli Since this is a bilingual book, it has UDL strategy 2.4, promote understanding across languages. ESOL strategy 24, incorporate the culture in the language of second language learners in your curriculum is included with the Mexican culture placed in the book.

DrSpalding I like that you have selected a book that teaches about culture and mathematics. Bilingual books should be in your classroom library. I also like that when you cite a resource, you say that it is one that you would use in your future classroom. Now you need to make sure that you do. 8mo

Brown Girl Dreaming | Jacqueline Woodson
post image
Pickpick

This nonfiction Newberry award winning book would be used for a literature circle in my classroom. Jacqueline Woods shares what it was like to grow up as an African-American in the 1960s and 1970s, living with the remnants of Jim Crowe and her growing awareness of the civil rights movement. Each poem is both accessible and emotionally charged, also reflecting her joy of finding her voice through writing stories. #lae3414sp19

SofiaRoselli The website I found provides multiple lesson plans along with introduction ideas and assessments. For ESOL, I would promote cooperation in small literature circles and for UDL I would foster collaboration through discussion in the literature circles. ESOL strategy 2 and UDL strategy 8.3 are used. #laesp19

This biography picture book is an excellent read aloud to introduce students to one of the worlds most influential leaders.The book won the Jane Addams book award for picture books. The book begins with his childhood experience of seeing “white only “signs throughout his hometown, presenting his efforts of the civil rights crusader, and ended abruptly with his assassination.

SofiaRoselli The website provides a great overview of the book, standards, resources and lesson plans. I would teach questioning for clarification, ESOL strategy one, to help students further understand big concepts in the book such as racism. I would also help clarify vocabulary and symbols, 2.1, so students understand prejudice and racism.

Number the Stars | Lois Lowry
post image
Pickpick

This biography novel won the John Newberry award. I would use this book for a literature circle to allow discussion between students. Anne-Marie Johansen is 10 years old and her best friend is Ellen Rosen. They live in Copenhagen in 1943 and their lives are filled to school, food shortages, and Nazi soldiers marching through town. When the Jews of Denmark are relocated, Ellen moves in with the Johansson‘s and pretends to be part of the family.

SofiaRoselli The lesson plan I found includes great objectives, discussion topics, literary devices, standards, and a story summary. I would use ESOL strategy 2, promote cooperation, by having the students get into groups for literature circles. The discussion topics from my website would help foster great discussion among students and help with their understanding of the book. 8mo
SofiaRoselli UDL strategy 8.3, foster collaboration and community, would also come from placing students in small literature circles.

Runny Babbit: A Billy Sook | Shel Silverstein
post image
Pickpick

This poetry story won the quill award for children‘s picture book as well as being a New York Times bestseller. I would use this as a read aloud in my classroom. The world of runny Babbit and his friends Toe Jurtle, Skertle Gunk, Rirty Dat, Dungry Hog and many other, is filled with those who speak a topsy-turvy language all their own. #lae3414sp19

SofiaRoselli The website I found for the book, gives a great lesson plan. It provides background knowledge on the offer and hope to explain more about poetry. I would lower and redundant to accommodate ESOL students. By supplying background knowledge, I am using UDL principle 3.1, activate or supply background knowledge.

A Bad Case of Stripes | David Shannon
post image
Pickpick

I would use this modern fantasy picture book in my classroom as a read aloud. Camilla Cream, a closeted lover or Lima beans, and a worrier about others‘ opinions of her, wakes up on the first day of school completely covered in stripes. If the stripes weren‘t bad enough, her skin begins to develop everything people suggest she has. The story raises the question of whether or not it is important to care about what people think of you. #lae3414sp19

SofiaRoselli The website I found gives great discussion questions as well as guidelines for discussion. With the various discussing questions, I can guide information processing, UDL strategy 3.3, in students. ESOL strategy 1, teach questioning for clarification, would also come out of the discussion questions.

caldwellalex95 @SofiaRoselli I used to hate this book when I was younger, but now I absolutely adore it. Isn't that funny?! I love the link you provided for us to check out; I used "Teaching Children Philosophy's" website in plenty of my posts, too. It's important for students to be provided discussion questions so they confirm their understanding of the text. Anyway, great post! This book is so colorful and entertaining! 8mo

This nonfiction book won the Robert F. Sibert award and would be used for a read aloud in my classroom. Almost 10 years before Brown vs. the Board of Education, Sylvia Mendez and her parents helped end school segregation in California. An American citizen of Mexican and Puerto Rican heritage who spoke and wrote perfect English, vendors was denied and Roman to a “whites only “school. Her parents took action by filing a lawsuit.

SofiaRoselli The website I found is very resourceful. It comes with almost everything you need for using the book as supplemental material in your classroom. The website has information on the author, the book awards, Standards, and activities. The lesson plan accommodates ESOL students because they include preview and review activities to go with the book. By providing background knowledge I the lesson plan, I am using UDL strategy 3.1. #lae3414sp19 (edited) 8mo
DrSpalding This is a true story! What genre is it now? 8mo

Unwind | Neal Shusterman
post image
Pickpick

This is a science-fiction novel which I would assign students to read individually. This novel takes place in the US and is set in the future. In this future world, there is a second Civil War which is far over reproductive rights. The resolution of the war was that between age of 13 and 18, parents can have their child “unwound,” whereby all their organs are transplanted into different donors, so life doesn‘t technically end.

SofiaRoselli I found a website with multiple lesson plans, resources, activities, worksheets and quizzes. For ESOL strategies I would pair students a small groups to complete activities on the book. This is ESOL strategy 2. For UDL, I chose strategy 8.3, foster collaboration and community, because I would pair the students in small groups.

The Hunger Games | Suzanne Collins
post image
Pickpick

The hunger games is it thrill packed science-fiction novel. I would use this book for independent reading. The capital forces the 12 districts to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to compete in the annual hunger games, a fight to the death on my TV with only one victor. When Katniss‘ sister, Prim, is chosen to compete, she was forced to take her place and fight in the hunger games.

SofiaRoselli I found many resources and lesson plans to use for this book on scholastics website. I would use ESOL strategy 6, continually monitor students comprehension by having them post on scholastics message board for the hunger games every couple chapters then evaluate their comprehension. I would use UDL strategy 9.1, promote expectations and beliefs that optimize motivation, by having them plan what they would write every couple chapters of the book. 8mo

The Fourteenth Goldfish | Jennifer L. Holm

Pickpick

I would use this historical fiction novel in a literature circle. This novel is about 11-year-old Ellie. She misses her old best friend, she even misses her goldfish. Then one day a strange boy shows up. He‘s bossy, cranky, and strangely looks like her grandfather. Her grandfather is a scientist who has always been slightly obsessed with immortality. Could this young, pimply boy really be her grandpa?

SofiaRoselli This lesson plan I found comes with the literature unit on the book, extended activities and a book report form. The reading journal provide it would help students in their literature circles with figs to discuss. ESOL strategy two would work with this because students would be in small groups for literature circles. The literature circles and activities would help to maximize transfer and generalization of the book which is UDL strategy 3.4. 8mo
wmaxflowers This book looks very interesting! I think the reading journal included in your lesson plan would be very helpful to students. (edited) 8mo

Towers Falling | Jewell Parker Rhodes

I would use this historical fiction novel for a literature circle in my classroom. Deja can‘t help but feel confused when her fifth grade teacher is teaching a series of lessons about how community will have one big answer about two tall towers ones visible outside the classroom windows. As she gets closer to answering questions about herself, what America means, and how communities can grow and heal, she discovers new questions too.

SofiaRoselli This story map I found my lesson plan but a lot of students to better organize characters and events in the story to get a better understanding of the novel. By making this book a literature circle read, I am using ESOL strategy two, promote cooperation through small groups. The graphic organizer for my lesson plan would cover you UDL strategy 3.2, which is, highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships.#lae3414sp19 (edited) 8mo

I Dream of Trains | Angela Johnson

Pickpick

This fiction novel is awarded golden cut award for picture book illustrations. I would use this book for read aloud in my classroom. This realistic fiction picture book is about a boy, his love for trains very engineer this is the story of a hero hero discovery as well as the story of the force this saves the human spirit, hope. This book is a great tool to begin to touch base on the topic of slavery in America.

SofiaRoselli I found this customizable lesson plan that allows students to work with story structure and organize the important elements to support comprehension of fiction text. There aare different levels of lesson plan activities to allow you to differentiate, scaffold, and extend instruction of literature. Throughout the activity, I would be incorporating ESOL strategy seven, show students how to use graphic organizers with semantic mapping and imaging. 8mo
SofiaRoselli UDL strategy 3.2 would be applied through the lesson plan as well. UDL strategy 3.2 highlights patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships. #lae3414sp19

The Phantom Tollbooth | Norton Juster
post image
Pickpick

This fantasy novel is perfect for an independent reading book in the classroom. For milo, everything‘s a bore. When a tollbooth mysteriously appears in his room, he drives through only because he‘s got nothing better to do. But on the other side, things seem different. Milo visits the Island of Conclusions (you get there by jumping), learns about time from a ticking watchdog named Tock, and embarks on a quest to rescue Rhyme and Reason!

SofiaRoselli The website I found for this book provides a preview of the book, standards, lesson plans, and resources for educators. The lesson plan provided gives an activity where students use a diagram to aid in identifying concepts and seeing relationships which covers ESOL strategy 30. UDL strategy 3.2 is also used because the diagrams helps to highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships. #lae3414sp19 (edited) 8mo

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom | Bill Jr. Martin
post image
Pickpick

I would use the fiction book for a great read aloud in my class. Letters A through Z climb up a coconut tree. Eventually they fall with a boom, only to begin all over again. The rhyme scheme in this book makes it excellent for singing. Plus, the words "chicka chicka boom boom" punctuate some of the pages, making for a great chorus. This is a fun book to read and sing with your students which will keep them engaged and having a blast! #lae3414sp19

SofiaRoselli http://underthealphabettree.blogspot.com/2012/09/busy-bees.html?m=1. This lesson plan helps students identify letters and count them out. This lesson includes ESOL 32 by pairing them in groups and UDL 2.1 by clarifying the vocabulary in the book repeatedly. (edited) 10mo
kkimmelman I will forever love reading this book. I read it to my students now! Like you said, the rhymes make it easier to sing which adds more engagement for students. Great book choice. @SofiaRoselli 10mo
DrSpalding How would you use this book… Remember to always note your teaching strategy using the acronyms on the log sheet. I myself have seen this as an excellent read aloud as well as a wonderful storytelling. Be sure to explain your universal design and English learner strategies a bit more. 10mo

High Tide in Hawaii | Mary Pope Osborne

I would use this fantasy story as an independent read in my classroom. In this book Jack and Annie travel back in time to the old Hawaii where they learn to build a ship and hula dance. They also learn to surf and spend time practicing. Soon, they realize there is going to be a tsunami and are faced with a dilemma. I highly recommend this and all the Magic Tree House books to students. They are easy to read and are educational.

SofiaRoselli https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/28-Magic-Tree-House-High-Tide-in-Haw.... This lesson helps with the students comprehension of the story. The lesson addresses ESOL 1 strategy by using discussion questions to clarify the text and UDL 3.3 strategies guiding their information processing through their worksheets. (edited) 10mo

One Crazy Summer | Rita Williams-Garcia

I would use this realistic fiction novel for a literature circle in my classroom. This book has won the Newberry honor award. It spoke about true racial issues that still occur today. Racial issues seem to be a problem that won‘t fix itself on its own soon, so informing our students to be open minded and think about the way the treat others is so important to try and suppress racial issues. #lae3414sp19

SofiaRoselli https://www.novelstudies.org/downloads/One_Crazy_Summer_Novel_Study_Preview.pdf . This lesson plan helps with new vocabulary along with comprehension of the story and character development. This lesson incorporates ESOL 5 and 15 strategies along with UDL 3.3 which helps guide information processing for students. (edited) 10mo
DrSpalding What‘s the genre? Name some awards… Helpful resource and nice alignment. Explain universal design principle 3.3. 10mo

I would use this traditional literature spin-off would be a great read aloud for the classroom. This Clifford book was a great book for kids. The colorful pictures are visually appealing for the kids to look at. It is a fun twist on the three littles story making Clifford a clumsy dog who has to fix his mistakes. #lae3414sp19

SofiaRoselli https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Three-Little-Pigs-and-the-Big-Re... . This lesson plan helps students identify characters and main events that happen to them. ESOL 13 is used because the lesson plan includes review activities from the book and UDL 3.2 because the worksheet helps to highlight big ideas and relationships in the story. (edited) 10mo

This animal fiction novel is a great teachlive read aloud for your students. It is a Caldecott Honor Book as well as a New York Times bestseller. It is a great book for teaching phonics to children. It provides a creepy mystery to keep children engaged into the book. The illustrations in the book are very interesting and point the carrots out since they are the only illustration in color. I recommend this book for your classroom. #lae3414sp19

SofiaRoselli https://mrswillskindergarten.com/creepy-carrots-lesson-plans/ . This lesson plan helps students understand story concepts and cause and effect. This assignment covers ESOL 8 in the lesson plan by providing how to model the lesson to the students and UDL 3.2 by highlighting patterns, big ideas, and relationships in the story. (edited) 10mo
DrSpalding Love the carrots in your picture. Make sure to elaborate on the strategies and principles. Replace the resource as it applies to another wonderful book not the one you selected here. 10mo
