DezireeLara It‘s hard to find a HF book that catches the eye for me and I think this one is great! I want to read it since I didn‘t get it for my LC. Love this review! 4mo
Bwhitley222 Great UDL strategy. Very fitting for this book. Its important order to get students to see the relevance in their own lives and be interested in the content of the books they read. 4mo
DawnS My teacher for the social studies class we need to take actually references this book too! I think a LC would be really interesting with the different roles for this book. 4mo
DeannaP This sounds like a really good book! It looks like others agree! It has so many awards! Books you can‘t put down are the best! 4mo

This book would be a great book in the classroom to teach multiculturalism and have an open disscussion after to talk about who is from where and what there cultural is like. This book is NF and would read in the classroom as a SR would be a great opportunity to teach other students where they come from and how it is there. UDL 8.3 and ESOL 6 #ucflae3414su19

Kcompton2912 I love this book! This would be a fantastic book for multiculturalism. It would be great if you did a social studies unit and opened with this book and then dedicated a day to a culture for a week long unit! 4mo

This book is an MF and RA. This book is a funny great book to read to children it makes you want to get up and dance and would be great for integrating the arts during language arts. #ucflae3414su19

This book is a B and would read as a RA. It is a wonderful story about how a child who grew in poverty grew to become someone who is looked upon as a role model and has children which is named the rainbow tribe. #ucflae3414su19

Stephanie5 UDL : 4.2 ESOL :28 these two tools would help understand the biography and give some more in depth knowledge in order to find out more from Josephine 4mo
DezireeLara This is an awesome book for biographies and black history month! Our students must know about different cultures and hear diverse backgrounds that resemble our very own students. 4mo
DrSpalding Several of your peers decided to read this book as well. It‘s a favorite biography of mine. You have a couple excellent biographies that you could use during a historical figures unit. Now it‘s on you to use them! EL 28 is spot on! 4mo

Pete the Cat and the Missing Cupcakes | James Dean, Kimberly Dean
post image

This book is a MF and I would read as a RT. Love Pete the cat books but this one has a supspensful finish in finding out who stole the cupcakes that Pete and Gus have made for the cupcake party. They find clues but will that help Pete and his friends who took the cupcakes before the party starts? #ucflae3414su19

Stephanie5 UDL : 3.3 and ESOL 42 in order to have a sequence of important things that happen in the book and have some fun and making the cupcakes into the timeline. 4mo
Myiab Super cute book! I would definitely use the resource you included with my future students! 4mo
Kcompton2912 I loved this book during storytelling! I hunk using realia with real cupcakes and making it a little party right before testing can really benefit students with their stress! 4mo
DrSpalding Yes it‘s modern fantasy and yes it could be an excellent reader‘s theater but as Kaitlyn mentioned… It was a good storytelling too.❤️📚 4mo

Fairyland: In Art and Poetry | Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York, N.Y.)
post image

This book is a P and I would use in my classroom as a PR. This book gives various examples of poetry through the life of fairies. Has many pictures and describe what fairies do and how they live in a forest but for humans it‘s just grass and leaves. They paint all the flowers and apples too. It‘s a great book for understanding the way poetry can have rhythm and rhyme. #ucflae3414su19

Stephanie5 UDL: 1.1 &8.3 in order to help students work together. ESOL:32 to increase on the teams and increase knowledge on poetry. 4mo
DrSpalding Partner reading could work and this is a high-quality resource. 4mo

The Gingerbread Man | Carol Jones
post image

This book written by Carol Jones is a TL and would read it in a S. The book is about a little old lady and old man that make a gingerbread man but as soon as they leave the oven door open the gingerbread man runs away so he doesn‘t get eaten. He runs away from Humpty Dumpty, the little boy blue, the little old woman that lived in a shoe, Little Miss Muffet and the old Grand Duke of York but does he get away from the the wolf? #ucflae3414su19

Stephanie5 UDL: 5.3 because this would be a great book if I make different groups to retell the story in order to know that they build fluencies with practice. ESOL strategy #17 in order to keep them engaged and demonstrate feelings that are happening in the book. https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/gingerbread-men-cookies/ (edited) 4mo
DezireeLara I love TL and actually posted a link that shares why it‘s important for our students to know about TL. I also love your UDL strategy and agree that this book is great for it. 4mo
Kendylleonard This is also a book that you can use to show students the multiple variations of this story. It would be great to use for a compare and contrast lesson! 4mo
Dylanburgett Great book for teaching of TL 4mo
DrSpalding Yum! Making gingerbread cookies after reading this classic tale is an excellent idea. Cooking in the classroom is connected to so many skills children need to know including math! 4mo

Snoring Beauty | Bruce Hale
post image

This is a fun book that gives a twist and different look on the sleeping beauty this book is TL and I would use as a RA. This book is about a princess born to a queen and king who have a baby named Marge for short and when born many fairies from the land came to witness her. The fairy named Beebo came to cast a spell that only prince Quince can break and so he does break the spell and free the princess from the dragon body into a human body.

Stephanie5 UDL 9.3 would fit this book with a worksheet or even discussion questions throughout a RA. The ESOL strategy I would use is #6 in order to have the discussion questions ask students throughout the book for extra comprehension 5mo
DawnS This sounds like a hilarious version of the traditional story and I think kids would be very engaged in a RA or this book! 5mo
DrSpalding Traditional literature with a twist… This is a folklore variant. Yes it would make an excellent read aloud but it would also make for an awesome storytelling. 4mo

The Crossover | Kwame Alexander
post image

This book written by Kwame Alexander is RF and should be used in the classroom as a LC. The book is about young 12 year old Josh which happens to go through trials and tribulations with growing up. Seeing that he plays basketball and his twin brother too fights through difficult times with the heart attacks his father encounters as well as going through middle school feeling alone. #ucflae3414su19

Stephanie5 The UDL I would use for this one is 3.2 because this would help students fully understand the relationships that Josh has over the period of time. The ESOL strategy that I would use is 1 because I feel that HOT questions would help with comprehension. 5mo
DrSpalding Helpful discussion questions however I would go straight to Kwame himself! 3.2 aligns nicely as does English learner one 4mo

This book is award winning Orbis Pictus. The book is an B and would be best read as an AS project. This is a great story that talks about a young many named Robert where his journey through life start off hard but gets through the difficulties when he imagined himself on stage right then is where he began to dance. This true story can relate to students that may be going through hard times and see it as an inspiration. #ucflae3414su19

Stephanie5 For this book I would use ESOL strategy 37 in order for an author study to be a summative assessment verify that the students ideas are correct and implement more tools in order for comprehension. The UDL 6.4 to tag along with the ESOL strategy. (edited) 5mo
DrSpalding I‘m curious as to why you selected author study? This would be an excellent read aloud during a social studies unit about historical figures. This award winner looks beautiful and it looks like you found it in the CMC! Notice how when books are honored and placed like this, your image, they draw attention to prospective readers. Awesome! 4mo

This book is a SF and I would read as a RT. It‘s about a boy named Niko,his dog Tag, and copilot Radar that travel through space and get to planet ice which then encounter snow monster which has an evil bunny spy and they end up loosing radar which is captive by the spy bunny. Then they manage to escape and get home but is it over or will the snow monster and killer bunny be back?! #ucflae3414su19

Stephanie5 The ESOL strategy that I would use is 9 in order to build a timeline and take notes of what happens first second and third. The UDL that I would use 6.1 to set the goal of what I want students to accomplish as well as what is important for them to put in their timeline. https://www.teachingbooks.net/media/pdf/BoydsMills/Snow-Monster-curriculum-guide... 5mo
MeaganM I must get a copy of this book! My children love space and snowmen! Thanks for posting it! 5mo
DrSpalding Looking at the front cover, this is less science-fiction and more… What genre? Storyboarding and understanding chronology using timelines is important. Helpful resource. 4mo

This book written by Skila Brown and Illustrated by Jamey Christopher is a P and would be great to read in a classroom as a PR. The reason is every page you turn there‘s a new poem about a specific type of train and that the author gives ideas and clues on how each one works. Great for when learning transportation in classrooms. #ucflae3414su19

Stephanie5 The ESOL strategy that I would use would be 50 so that I would be able to use comprehension activity such as the KWL. For the UDL for this book that I would use is 4.2 and the tool would be incorporated into the ESOL strategy too. https://www.eduplace.com/graphicorganizer/pdf/kwl.pdf 5mo
DrSpalding According to the standards, you must teach about transportation in kindergarten. This would be an excellent book to supply poems for charts! Shared reading and coral reading would work well. 4mo

This book written by Carol McCloud and illustrated by David Messings award winning like New York‘s best seller. I would say this book is MF and would be a great RA in the classroom. This book is about teaching students to be kind and filling peoples bucket with happiness. #ucflae3414su19

Stephanie5 The ESOL strategy that would be used is 46 with hands on activities. The UDL would be 5.2. The activity in order to accomplish this would be https://bucketfillers101.com/free-resources/ to included the many activities that could be used with this book. 5mo
DrSpalding I love this book. While some of your other posts scream social studies, this does not however it is a book that you should integrate into your classroom related to social studies and building a positive classroom community. 4mo

This book is a NF and could be used in a classroom as a LC and/or DR. This story is about thirteen great Americans that have made a huge impact on the USA and the story is being dedicated by Barack Obama to his daughters. He slides back into time to talk about Jackie Robinson, Martin Luther King, Cesar Chavez and many more. #ucflae3414su19

Stephanie5 The ESOL strategy I would use for this book is 32 since it could be used in LC to make sure they report and come to a conclusion. The UDL I would use would be 6.1 to make sure they are responsible for what they have read. https://achievethecore.org/content/upload/Of%20Thee%20I%20Sing%20-%20Other.docx this activity will help create better understanding and will lay out what needs to be answered and what needs to be known by the story. 5mo
DrSpalding This is a high-quality resource. Continue using this. I am not sure that literature circles or dramatic reenactment are the best strategies but you could try them. 4mo

This book is a RF and can be read IR in a classroom. I can really make a connection with this book so I can only imagine how many young girls can relate too. This book is about a young girl who gives her hair a sense of personality in essence but her father tries to help her accomplish getting a look that she might like for a special day. #ucflae3414su19

Stephanie5 With this book it has a lot of wanting to understand what‘s happening so the ESOL strategy I would use would be #6 and the UDL That I would use in the classroom is 2.4 to encourage understanding of text and facilitate comprehension. https://www.toddlerapproved.com/2015/04/make-your-own-grass-hair-salon-from.html... would be a good activity to do with students and let them express themselves through art. 5mo
DrSpalding This is such a great book! There are many books about this topic on the market right now. A wonderful addition to your classroom library. Again be sure to consult the publisher or website created by the author first. 4mo

No, David! | David Shannon

This book is RF and could be read in a SR. No, David! Is about a child who acts like a child and gets time out but like every mother and their child they come back together and after all the craziness David makes. In classrooms its a good book to ask for prior knowledge on and if they‘ve ever done anything like David has. Caldecott award winner. #ucflae3414su19

Stephanie5 This book would definitely best be tied with ESOL strategy 4. The UDL 3.1 to activate prior knowledge great opportunity. https://www.kindergartenworks.com/kindergarten-teaching-ideas/22-no-david-activi... many great activities that could be accessed. 5mo

This book a New York Times Best Seller is an MF and would be a great PR just because of their reactions. It‘s a silly story that makes the reader say wacky things and definitely made me giggle. It will definitely be one of the favorites in a classroom. #ucflae3414su19

Stephanie5 I would use the ESOL strategy 13 to help the students practice words and saying words that don‘t have a meaning for practicing self talk. The UDL 5.3 would be the one I would use for this story. 5mo

This book is written by Chelsea Clinton and Illustrated by Alexandra Boiger. This book is a B and talks about many women through their different times where they fought for equality with education, freedom, creating medical tools and becoming a reporter this book entails girls and show women to not think anything is impossible. So these thirteen women that the book goes over have persisted. #ucflae3414su19

galacticbees I reviewed this book too! I think it would be so incredibly useful in the classroom. I love how many remarkable women are represented in this book and honestly it'd be so cool to read this during women's history month to better help them understand how far these women have all come. 5mo
Stephanie5 In my classroom I would present this book as a RA the reason being there are many words that would most likely have to give prior knowledge to and would be great for open ended questions. So with that being said I would use The ESOL strategy 20 to have students to see the words and put more up there while reading if necessary. The UDL that I would use is 3.1 which would help with the ESOL strategy and deepen understanding. 5mo
Stephanie5 http://www.booknerdmommy.com/persisted-mini-biography-activity-idea/ this is an awesome activity to increase their thinking. 5mo

This book is an MF and would use it in my classroom as a RT to create props and have my students act it out. The story is about the rock, the paper, and the scissors trying to find competition in their battle to see who‘s the best in their quest the encounter other things like a computer printer, and dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets which are no match for them but a fight against each other will be the challenge they‘ve been waiting for!

Stephanie5 The ESOL strategy that I would be using would be #8 because it with tie in with the RT. The UDL that I would use 1.3 which would go ahead and be assisted by the lesson plan. https://d1xcdyhu7q1ws8.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2017/10/1018022... this site would give students ideas of what they want to answer before a RT and gives an insight on a puppet performance. #ucflae3414su19 5mo
britt_brooke My sons love this one! The fuzzy little butt page tickles us every time. 🍑😆 5mo
galacticbees What a great book!! It's so interactive and I know classrooms would eat it up. A puppet performance of this book would be such a fun activity. 5mo
DrSpalding I would have loved to have read this book to our class. I like the idea of a readers theater as well however I think it would make for a wonderful interactive read aloud. You could split up the classroom and have some be rock, some be paper, and some be scissors. Anytime those characters came up they would play the game! So fun. Your principles and strategies need a bit more detail. 4mo
