Love You Forever | Robert N Munsch
post image

Love you Forever by Robert Munsch is a great book to read as a kid! I actually read this book EVERY night with my mom and it‘s my all time favorite childhood book. Every night before bed my mom and I would say to each other the “I‘ll love you forever” lines. This book is about the unconditional love between a boy and his mom no matter what. At the end of the book the roles have flipped as he rocks his old mother to sleep. Here is an interactive

taywise393 link that gives you a word search and a read aloud link. The read aloud link would work perfectly for ELL students Incase they don‘t understand the words in the book. This book received a Parents' Choice Gold Award. This aligns with ESOL strategies 16 and 17. Some UDL principles for this book are 2.5 and 1.1 because of the different displays. #LAE3414SP19 (edited) 8mo
audrey.wilson I read this book to one of the little boys I nanny and by the end of the book I was a puddle of tears! Great choice and I agree ESOL 16 and 17 align perfectly! 8mo
DrSpalding I‘ll love you forever I‘ll like you for always as long as I‘m living my baby you‘ll be. This has been committed to memory for at least 20 years. This book is a must read around Mother‘s Day in the elementary classroom. 8mo

Divergent | Veronica Roth
post image

This SF novel by Veronica Roth is still one of my favorites! It‘s taken place in the future where this town is divided into 5 sections based on their personality. You follow through Tris‘ life where she realizes what kind of world she‘s living in. Children in middle school would love this book and it would be good as a IR. It would be awesome if students answered these questions in a PowerPoint form and presented to the class.

taywise393 https://www.learningtogive.org/resources/divergent-literature-guide Some UDL principles that align are 3.2 & 3.3 for the comprehension of the novel. ESOL accommodations that align are 9 and 13 when taking notes on what was read. #LAE3414SP19 (edited) 8mo
audrey.wilson This book is definitely one of my favorites! I like your idea of having the students answer their questions through PowerPoint! 8mo
DrSpalding While this could be read by above level readers in fourth or fifth grade, it would be more appropriate in the middle school. 8mo

The One and Only Ivan | Katherine Applegate
post image

The One and Only Ivan is a F book by Katherine Applegate that received a Newbery Medal. This book is about Ivan, a Silverback Gorilla, and his other animal friends stuck in cages at a mall, not knowing what it‘s like to love a normal life. This book is definitely for children in around the 4th grade. I think this book should be read as a LC so your students can talk about their feelings from the book and what they think will happen next.

taywise393 This link https://media.btsb.com/TitleLessonPlans/597.pdf provides discussion questions that I think would be great for students in their LC groups. Some ESOL accommodations are 2 and 10 because of the cooperation in small group settings. Some UDL principles are 6.1 & 6.2. Students being able to set their goals within the book will make them more attainable. #LAE3414SP19 8mo
KAdudu I just recently finished reading this book, it was amazing and would for sure recommend everyone to read. 8mo
DrSpalding That is the best resource you could have hyperlinked. I am happy you enjoyed this read! 8mo

Henry's Freedom Box | Ellen Levine
post image

Henry‘s Freedom Box is a HF children‘s book that would be read best as a GR. This book by Ellen Levine is based on a true story from the Underground Railroad. This book won the Coretta Scott King award and Caldecott Medal. When reading this book, it would be best to read when going into a History lesson about the Underground Railroad. This book would give the students a little background knowledge prior to the lesson.

taywise393 Here is a great link that has many activities with the book https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/henrys-freedom.... A UDL principles that aligns is 3.1 due to giving the students a lot of background knowledge. Some ESOL accommodations are 6 and 14 so you know your students are comprehending. #LAE3414SP19 8mo
DrSpalding Excellent book, excellent resource, and good alignment. This is certainly a book to use in a social studies lesson. 8mo

This P collections book by Shel Silverstein is a amazing book that takes you far past imagination for children. Within the book, it takes you to ways that children could see the world versus an adult. Many parents see this book to be rebellious and don‘t like it because it teaches students to be rude. I remember reading this as a kid and my teacher had us pick our favorite poem from the book and find the main idea, setting and characters.

taywise393 This is something good for students to do because finding those can sometimes be harder in a poem. I would use this worksheet with it https://images.app.goo.gl/FzUeH8546jiD2Hn16. I would think this book would be best as an IR. Some ELL accommodations are 44 and 42 when they wrote down the important parts of the poem. Some UDL strategies are 7.2 and 2.2. #LAE3414SP19 8mo
wmaxflowers I liked your lesson plan! I agree that having the students assess the character, setting, problem, and solution in the poem would help them better follow along. (edited) 8mo

This hilarious F children‘s book by Drew Daywalt is something that everyone in the schools should read! We were read this book in class and everyone agrees that the book was amazing. I would have this book as a DR with students. This book is about all of the different colored crayons wanting to quit and their reasoning behind it. This would be a great lesson into for teaching students about the different colors.

taywise393 In this lesson, https://www.eslkidstuff.com/lesson-plans/pdf/colors-lesson-plan.pdf , I would replace the song for the book (or use both)!! Which is a great way to introduce the color wheel. ELL accommodations are 29 and 31 based on the students comprehension of the instruction. UDL principles are 7.3 and 5.3. This book won the Goodreads choice awards best picture book!!! #LAE3414SP19 (edited) 8mo
wmaxflowers I enjoyed your lesson plan. I think that including the 8 different activities teaching the colors will help to really enforce the color wheel concept! (edited) 8mo
SofiaRoselli This looks like such a cute book! The lesson plan has so many activities and the book will definitely keep children engaged. 8mo
DrSpalding Good resource Taylor! I like the idea of using both the song and the book… How cool to include arts integration as well. 7mo

Out of My Mind | Sharon M. Draper

Grab your tissue box because the book “Out of My Mind” by Sharon Draper is going to mess with your emotions!! This RF would be awesome for an AS for students. Sharon Draper is a great author for students to study on because of all her amazing books she‘s published. Out of my mind is about a girl who has cerebral palsy and only can keep her words inside because she can‘t talk. Later on she gets a device that she‘s always wanted that helps her speak

taywise393 After she gets the device, her life changes forever. This amazing book won the Sunshine State Young Readers Award. Here are a bunch of worksheets about the book https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Browse/Search:out%20of%20my%20mind The ESOL modifications that would be good for this novel are 6 and 22. The UDL principle that‘s the best is 7.3 so students can focus more on the book. (edited) 8mo
sydneydaniels Love this book! It was so eye opening to view the perspective of a student with special needs. 8mo
caldwellalex95 @taywise393 I have heard nothing but positive things about this story from Sharon Draper. I'm sure this story will open the eyes of many, allowing us to become more aware of others and to acquire a higher level of empathy. I NEED to read this book. Is it sad? Also, I have used the "Teachers Pay Teachers" website for plenty of my posts. It's a wonderful source! Thank you for sharing your thoughts and feelings about this story! 8mo

This SF book by Madeline L‘Engle is a Newbery Award Winner. This would great read as a LC because peers can sit down and talk about what was read every couple chapters.

“Something Big Has Been Here” is a P book by Jack Prelutsky and Illustrated by James Stevenson. This is a collection of poems that will make children laugh their pants off. There are different kinds of poems so students can flip through it and pick what they want to read. I would have this book as a DR or CR for the class. I would give my students this worksheet to write down all of the rhyming words https://images.app.goo.gl/ExCBy8NJeEfnsC5W9

taywise393 Some ESOL modifications are 2, 9 and 14. These are things that would make the comprehension easier for the student. The UDL principles that work are 3.3 and 1.1. These are ways for the student to memorize and understand what was read. #LAE3414SP19 (edited) 8mo

This Caldecott winner TL children‘s book such a cute book that extends from the story Humpty Dumpty. In this book, Humpty Dumpty is scared to live his life and super scared of heights. He one days gets the courage to go up on the wall and when he‘s up on the wall there is a twist that no one expects. This would be great as a SR for the class. A lesson that would work great for this book is to teach students the format of a story.

taywise393 I would give students a copy of this worksheet and do it as a class and go over each piece. https://images.app.goo.gl/gAeuVyb9HECwprHg8 In 2018, this book was a NCTE Charlotte Huck Award Winner. ESOL strategies that would work for this is 4 & 6. These are important because of prior knowledge and comprehension. The UDL principles that match are 9.1 and 9.3. #LAE3414SP19 (edited) 8mo

The book “The War That Saved Me” is a HF book that would be beneficial as a SR with students around middle school.

When her brother gets shipped to London to escape the war, she follows. Ada‘s brother and Ada get close to a woman in London that takes them in.

taywise393 The war slowly pushes them apart but they refuse to go back to their cruel mother.

Who Was Walt Disney is a B book all about how Walt Disney lived his life and everything behind the magic. It starts off from him as a kid and how he lived his childhood.

A great lesson plan would be https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/introducing-bi....

taywise393 This lesson plan introduces the biography genre which is good for young students. The UDL strategies for this would be 1.3 & 3.1. The ELL strategies would be 9 and 32. These are important so the student has a partner to help them when confused. #lae3414sp19 8mo

This Biography (B) Martin‘s Big Words, by Doreen Rappaport, is the Jane Addams Children‘s Book Award winner & a Caldecott award winner. This is a book about Martin Luther King Jr and his life story. He is one of the most influential people in history so this would be good to read as RA. This is a great introduction into civil rights and MLK‘s story.

This NF book by Kris Rattini is a book that will keep readers interested. The book about Tornados and everyday weather will inform students about things like what causes thunder and lightning and what makes a tornado twist! The real life pictures will make it seems like you‘re there with weather. This book would be a great PR for students. Reading this book with a friend would keep both students eager to talk about dangerous weather afterward.

taywise393 This is what a good book is suppose to do. A lesson plan that would be great is http://teacher.scholastic.com/activities/wwatch/tornadoes/experiments.htm. The students would make their own tornado and add objects to it to see how fast it can spin and whip objects around. 8mo

The famous book, The Cat In The Hat, by Dr. Seuss is a book that almost every child has read. This F book for all ages and it takes you through Sally and her brother's rainy day adventure. The Cat In The Hat has surprises for the kids, even some special guests! They all make a huge mess and they see their mother coming home. The Cat In The Hat comes in with a cleaning surprise and tidies everything up before she gets inside. #lae3414sp19

taywise393 This book gives you a whirlwind of emotions and kids love it! For this book, I would have students read this as a CR because of the rhyming to it. For the lesson plan, I would introduce rhyming words. With this printable, students can group up and find out what words rhyme with the ones given. http://www.seussville.com/activities/SEUSS_RhymingFun_1.pdf The UDL's that would satisfy are 7.3 and 2.1. The ESOL strategies I would use are 17 and 20. 10mo

The Ugly Duckling | Hans Christian Andersen
post image

The book The Ugly Duckling (TL) by Hans Christian Andersen, won the Caldecott Honor Award. This is a classic and almost everyone knows the storyline! A little "duckling" gets bullied all his life as a child because he didn't look like the rest. When he grows up he ends up growing to be a swan, the most beautiful bird of them all. Some younger students might not understand the message behind this book so they will need help understanding.

taywise393 However, once they grasp it they will learn a life lesson. When reading this book as a RA, I will use this lesson plan https://study.com/academy/lesson/the-ugly-duckling-lesson-plan. This would satisfy UDL 2.1 and 2.2. The ESOL strategies I would use are 1, 13 and 16. #lae3414sp19 (edited) 10mo

Click, Clack, Moo Cows That Type (F) by Doreen Cronin is a very humorous book for young readers. This is a Caldecott Honor Book that would keep kids laughing and thinking about what happens next. It tells a story about cows, a farmer and ducks on the farm. The farmer gets aggravated that the cows won‘t be cows don‘t do their work and will only type. The cows and the farmer get into a little feud and at the end of the book there is a funny twist.

Big Words for Little People | Jamie Lee Curtis
post image

Big Words for Little People (RF) is a great book to use as an interactive RA. This book travels through a series of big words and explains what each of them mean through little real life incidents. Jamie Lee Curtis does a great job with connecting strong vocabulary words like cooperate, respect, considerate and patience to life lessons that children need to know. The book takes you through things that happen as a family.

taywise393 Then at the end ties it together with how love is the most important word of them all. When I read this to my class I will connect it to this vocabulary lesson plan. https://www.education.com/lesson-plan/el-support-lesson-learning-new-vocabulary/ When a student is unfamiliar with a word they write it down and save it for the lesson plan. 10mo
taywise393 UDL 2.1 fits with this book because of the vocabulary. ESOL strategies 5 and 14 would be good with this book. For ELL students or struggling readers context clues in this book are very helpful to describe the unfamiliar and big words.
