The Giver | Lois Lowry
post image
Pickpick

This SF 1994 Newbery Medal winner novel by Lois Lowry tells about a 12-year-old boy named Jonas who lives in a dystopian society that is colorless, ideal, free of crime and sadness. At that age, children are assigned jobs/roles, which they will train and do for the rest of their lives limiting the choice of an individual. The society is controlled by rules and tradition of the Elders.

sbombasi Jonas wanted change and made a sacrificial choice for the good of the community. This would be good IR/LC read.

This lesson plan allows students to think deeper about philosophical issues like the book, students would share their own experiences of distinctive memories growing up, have discussions about them and reflect on self-assessment.

This TL picture book by Simms Tabak retells about an old lady who swallows a fly, amongst other things. This would be good for S, the lesson plan is great for creating a storytelling for this book for the students to perform.

This NF picture book written by Jerry Pallotta illustrated by Rob Bolster would be great for a RA to introduce students about the concept of multiplication. Using pieces of the Hershey‘s Milk Chocolate bar as parts to represent rows and columns can make it so much easier for students to understand the process of multiplication “facts” emphasizing the problems on the pages. I think it would be nice to use real candy bar in a lesson. #ucflae3414f19

sbombasi http://www.fldoe.org/core/fileparse.php/7576/urlt/Grade3_MultandDivUnit.pdf
This link provides great list of resources for math application in dealing with multiplication along with text-to-text books that can be compared to this one as well.

The UDL principle 8.2 vary demands and resources to optimize challenge along with EL #47 use group information gap activities (sharing pieces of information to solve problems) would go with this.

This RF picture book by Oge Mora has won the 2019 Caldecott Honor, Coretta Scott King, and John Steptoe New Talent Illustrator. This story tells about a sweet, caring woman who makes a delicious stew that wafts through the community. Community members stop by to have some and book shows great qualities of sharing, gratitude and giving back. I would love to read this book as a RA, in the month of November close to Thanksgiving! #ucflae3414f19

sbombasi https://www.jstart.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/PR5579C_Thank_You_Omu_Jumpstar...
This activity guide is great for this book, I would use the gratitude jar activity. Students will write something they are grateful for to put in a jar to read and celebrate them.

Enemy Pie | Derek Munson, Tara Calahan King
post image
Pickpick

This RF picture book written by Derek Munson and illustrated by Tara Calahan King would be good for RA. A boy named Jeremy Ross moved into a new town and his house is next to his number one enemy. His dad has the perfect recipe to get rid of enemies called Enemy Pie, but he would only agree to make it if he spends an entire day playing with the enemy!

sbombasi After hanging out with his enemy he seems to not be all that bad after all and actually wants to be friends with him. But, with the promise of making the Enemy pie…is it still an enemy pie? Was there anything nasty about the pie after all? Find out! This is a nice book for kids to learn how to make friends or deal with conflict with someone. #ucflae3414f19 2mo
sbombasi This teacher guide has multiple activities to go along with the book that reaches across the curriculum. I particularly like the activity of creating a friendship pie.

This P book is a companion to the New York Times Best Seller that was written by Mary Ann Hoberman and illustrated by Michael Emberly has a great anthology of different short poems students can easily read. It would be perfect for a PR, the book has lines that are color-coded so students can choose among themselves what color they want to read and have a conversation through a poem.

sbombasi This specific version is perfect for the month of October and the theme of Halloween. The educator‘s guide has curriculum connections to reading aloud, phonetics, and rhyming. Some of these activities includes creating a work wall/rhyming dictionary and word match.

Wonder. R.J. Palacio | R J Palacio

Pickpick

This RF, New York Times Best Seller novel by R. J. Palacio tells about a boy who goes by the name Auggie and all he ever wanted to be is look and be treated normally. Since he was born, he had major surgeries done to his face making him look extraordinary which too many people find uncomfortable talking or looking at him. This book goes through different perspectives of people mentioned in the story.

sbombasi After being home-schooled by his mom for four years, this will be his first time going to a mainstream school as a fifth-grader. But can he convince his new classmates that he‘s just like them, despite his appearance? This would be good for an IR with the use of HOT questions or LC with group discussions from resource linked. 2mo

Pink and Say | Patricia Polacco

Pickpick

This HF picture book by Patricia Polacco retells a story passed down to her about the trials and tribulations of two soldiers named Sheldon Russell Curtis (Say) who was a white soldier and Pinkus Aylee (Pink) who was a black soldier that was involved in the Civil War. Say was wounded in battle and Pink found him, brought him to shelter, and helped him recover.

sbombasi With the goal of surviving and winning the war, getting back into the war was a scary thing to revisit. This story involves the history between Confederate and Union troops, colored and white people, and fighting “the sickness” of slavery.

This would be good for an RA/PR, students can discuss with their partner the theme of the book and knowledge gained about the Civil War. #ucflae3414f19

Thank You, Mr. Falker | Patricia Polacco

This RF picture book by Patricia Polacco tells about a girl named Trisha who struggles with dyslexia. Throughout her years in school, everyone was able to read except for her which made her frustrated and thought she was dumb. Kids would make fun of her and not one teacher paid attention to her struggle, until Mr. Falker came along and believed in that she could read. He helped her as much as he could and finally so happily, she was able to read!

sbombasi This book would be great for an AS because this book is actually an autobiography of the author. It‘ll be nice for students to see and research that the author tells about her own personal life similarly through this book she wrote. Here‘s a lesson plan that goes perfectly with an author study activity.

Ish | Peter H. Reynolds
post image
Pickpick

This RF picture book by Peter H. Reynolds tells about a boy named Ramon who loves to draw until his older brother makes fun of his artworks. Ramon is hurt and hindered by what his brother said to him, leading to believe that his drawings don‘t look right. Positively, his little sister notices and admires his work in that they are unique. She describes that they might not look like real houses or boats, but they are “house-ish” and “boat-ish.”

sbombasi She gives a new look and appreciation for his art that Ramon rediscovers his love and confidence in drawing again with his style.
This would be great for an RA that is interactive with discussions focusing on the difference between a fixed performance framework and a dynamic learning framework from the book‘s theme. Emphasizing the use of language facilitating a dynamic learning framework with thought-provoking questions and students‘ responses.

This RF novel by Sharon Draper, is a great story about diversity. This book entails an 11-year-old girl named Isabella who is in the 6th grade. She is half black and half white. She struggles with her identity with being biracial, racial tension among her community, and living with her divorced parents of two separate families that she has to go back and forth to every week. #ucflae3414f19

sbombasi This book is a great LC to discuss many topics like real-life struggles that may be similarly happening with others that they can relate to or bring awareness about different types of families.

After the fall, he is now terrified of heights and can‘t do many of the things he loves most. #ucflae3414f19
