Earthdance | Joanne Ryder, Norman Gorbaty
post image
Pickpick

Earthdance by Joanne Ryder and illustrated by Norman Gorbaty is an incredible piece of P dedicated to appreciating our home, Earth. It allows the students to imagine what it would be like to be the Earth and to remind them the importance of protecting our home, hence why a DR would be an ideal teaching strategy with this book. The author and illustrator managed to bring this beautiful poem to life, all while emphasizing a truly important message.

karlasanabria1 #UCFLAE3414F19 An ideal teacher resource for this PB is https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/books/earth-dance-by-joanne-ryder/. The UDL Strategy that would best align with this book is clarifying vocabulary and symbols (2.1). The ESOL Strategy I‘ve chosen for this particular book is teaching technical vocabulary supporting key concepts (5). 1w
KristenScala This book looks like such a fun and inviting read. I think it‘s important that we teach our students about our planet and the variety of people who live on it. I love that this is a poetry book because it may help students have better clarification on things they may not know about. 1w

Zen Shorts | Jon J Muth
post image
Pickpick

Zen Shorts by Jon J. Muth is a F Caldecott book that I think will be ideal for a RT project. This beautifully illustrated book shares the story of three sibling who learn individual life lessons from a very wise panda named Stillwater. I will certainly be adding it to my future classroom and would recommend you all do the same because it teaches students how to problems solve in a meditative way following the “zen” way of life. #UCFLAE3414F19

karlasanabria1 This link shows resources for you as a future educator to include in your Zen Shorts lesson plan, https://www.rif.org/literacy-central/book/zen-shorts. The UDL Guideline that goes best with said story is enhancing capacity for monitoring progress (6.4). While the ESOL Strategy that goes best with this story is placing language in meaningful context (11). 2w

Creepy Carrots! by Aaron Reynolds and illustrated by Peter Brown is a classic Caldecott winning F picture book. It tells the story of a Jasper Rabbit who gets followed by some creepy carrots, with a sweet and unexpected ending. The way Brown illustrated this book is a work of art itself, as a color coding enthusiast the color scheme was not unnoticed nor unappreciated. This is the perfect book for a Fall time RA. #UCFLAE3414F19

karlasanabria1 https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/books/creepy-carrots-by-mr-aaron-reynolds/ is an excellent Scholastic resource for all educators to be aware of.

The Quiet Place by Sarah Stewart and illustrated by David Small was a beautiful HF read. The story is about a Mexican girl that moves to the US and practices her English by sending her aunt letters. I connected to the text because I learned how to read and write English by writing letter, similar to how the main character did. It‘s overall a book your ESOL students will love and most likely relate to, all while being the perfect book for PR.

karlasanabria1 #UCFLAE3414F19 The resources found through the following link provide an array of reflective resources for students to interact with, https://www.google.com.pr/amp/s/childrenslibrarylady.com/the-quiet-place/%3famp. The UDL Guideline that I found goes well with the story is developing self-assessment and reflection (9.3). While the ESOL Strategy would be de-emphasizing speed and emphasizing accuracy of work (34). 2w

Grandfather‘s Journey by Allen Say is my favorite picture book to this day. This heartwarming NF Caldecott winning book tells the story of a Japanese grandfather and his longing for his two homes. All educators should have this book in their classrooms because it will resonate with your immigrant students.
