The Rainbow Fish | Marcus Pfister
post image
Pickpick

“The Rainbow Fish” by Marcus Pfister is a great F story that teaches students how to be a good friend. This story is about a very beautiful fish who has the shiniest scales in the ocean. Other fish want scales just like him, but Rainbow Fish chooses not to share, therefore, making him lonely. This would make a great S for young readers! #UCFLAE3414F19

abbie-cadabbie The lesson plan I chose includes a fun craft idea for younger students to enjoy. The beginning of the lesson includes making predictions prior to reading. https://www.teacher.org/lesson-plan/rainbow-fish/ 1mo
abbie-cadabbie The UDL strategy I chose is to develop self-assessment and reflection (9.3) due to the moral of this story. All students should realize how important it is to share! The ESOL strategy I chose is to use preview/review activities (13) 1mo
karlasanabria1 I loved your book description, it seems like a must have book for the elementary level to teach students about sharing and community. Your teacher strategy seems like one the students will most definitely enjoy, great book choice! 1mo

lynneamch When my 4-yr-old granddaughter was told she might be sent to bed without supper, she told her mom that's what happened to Max. Her mom asked if that was because Max was misbehaving. My granddaughter thought about for a minute, then replied, "The author doesn't tell us." ?? 1mo

”The City of Ember” by Jeanne DuPrau is a great SF for 6th-8th graders to enjoy. Lina Mayfleet and Doon Harrow live in the subterranean city of Ember. Their city is the last city with light, so darkness goes on for miles in every direction. See how these working 12-year-olds can piece their way out of this town and into a habitable life. Using this book as an IR is a great idea! #UCFLAE3414F19

abbie-cadabbie This lesson plan provides discussion questions that can be great to follow along to while reading the novel. https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/city-ember-dis... 2mo
abbie-cadabbie The UDL Guideline that I think would be best would be to develop self-assessment and reflection (9.3) Considering the characters are around their same age, students can reflect on themselves to see what they‘d do if they were in the characters‘ positions. For ESOL strategies, I would choose to assign short reading for homework (38) so students aren‘t overwhelmed with the assignment. 2mo

abbie-cadabbie The UDL Guideline I‘d utilize would be to clarify vocabulary and symbols (2.1) I would pre-teach vocabulary and make sure to go over each word as it‘s presented in the story. For the ESOL strategy, I will ask numerous questions along the way that require higher level thinking responses (36) This can help the students practice formulating sentences based on what they‘re thinking.
