I love the movie and enjoyed the book even more. Jumanji written & illustrated by: Chris Van Allsburg is a wonderful picture book that has adventure, daring & frightful experiences as well as some life lesson along the way. A book that will have you wanting more. I believe this book is best under MF, RF due to the nature of the book. UDL 4.1 regarding vary the nature for response & navigation along with EL 3 for encourage self talk.#UCFLAE3414F19

Tinks This Picture book was awarded the Caldecott medal and should be added to all elementary classroom libraries as well as be equally read any age group who enjoyed the aspect of the movie. It goes along with school curriculum standards and can be used for a think-aloud as comprehension and fluency teachings. #UCFLAE3414F19 4w
DrSpalding With the new movie coming out, teacher should be using this picture book in their classrooms! This is a great time to perform an author study about this amazing author. 5d

#UCFLAE3414F19
(author/illustrator: Chris Van Allsburg)
Two siblings find an abandoned boardgame one day. After starting, they quickly realize the game isn‘t normal when lions and monkeys and all sorts of jungle dangers begin appearing in their house. This MF makes it feel as if the reader is caught in the action alongside the two siblings as they rush through the dangers, trying to win the game so everything can return back to normal. Caldecott

kgarzon This PB would be great for SR since there are many opportunities to analyze the text in real-time with students. http://www.houghtonmifflinbooks.com/features/thepolarexpress/tg/jumanji.shtml
This guide details a writing assignment where students can observe the descriptive language and strong verbs that the author used, discerning how it makes the story more engaging vs “boring” verbs. They can incorporate strong verbs into their own writing.
2mo
kgarzon UDL Principle 3.3 (Guide information processing, visualization, and manipulation) is demonstrated with how the teacher guides students in visualizing the strong verbs in action. EL strategy 12 (teach to two objectives, language and content) can be used due to the nature of SR: students and the teacher can revisit this same book multiple times to address a different lesson, alternating between focusing on the language or the content of the story. 2mo
DrSpalding The second movie is coming out which will cause more children to be familiar with the book. Savvy teachers should be sharing his work and possibly performing an author study. I like the idea of shared reading and I love the idea of using more engaging verbs in their writing. 5d

Everyone knows the story of what happens when a brother and sister find the magical board game Jumanji. This MF read is about how the game brings to life all of the animals and jungle elements in the game. It is a 1982 Caldecott award winner that would be best suited as an RA, RR or even a RT #UCFLAE3414SU19. Even though this movie scared the heck out of me as a kid, it‘s become one of my favorites.

BeverlyMel You could also conduct an AS on the author so students can know more about his work. https://texasdeafed.org/uploads/files/online-resources/About_the_Author_.pdf. This is a link to an AS activity on Chris Van Allsburg, students can incorporate UDL 4.2 & EL 2 by using the internet to find out about the life & works of Allsburg. 4mo
DrSpalding You need the verbiage for your universal design principles and English learner strategies. Beyond that excellent idea to employ an author study on this amazing author illustrator! 4mo
DezireeLara Super awesome link! And I like the idea of an author study with this book since literally everyone knows the story but not everyone knows the awesome person behind it! 4mo

This MF written and illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg is a good read for children that enjoy suspense and adventure. This book teaches children to always read the instructions and follow rules because not doing so can lead to consequences. In the story, the main characters are siblings who find a magical board and decide to play without reading the instructions which leads them to magically being a part of the game as the game comes to life.

fquadri This book won the Caldecott Medal and is good for PR.
EL strategy 46 can be incorporated with this book and UDL strategy 5.2 can be used so that children can get hands on with completing activities pertaining to the book. This website provides us with exciting lessons and activities that can be used with this book. https://www.teachervision.com/adventure/jumanji-teachers-guide

Estradan I honestly didn‘t know Jumanji was a book until this class. Including a hands on activity like having a game board out could be a cool way to introduce the book. 4mo
DrSpalding Great activity! Many students, like some of your peers, do not know that the movies came from quality children‘s literature. This is something your students should know. You now have two VanAllsburg books in your posts. Creating an author study for a third or fourth grade class would be a wise choice as well. 4mo

just and peter find a discard board game at the park that warns “do not begin unless you intend to finish”. little do they know that the game will soon come the life, replete with wild animals and natural disasters, right in their family.

Caldecott and was written in 1981. This story takes place at the children's home. The story continues with the children going to the park and finding the game jumanji. Ince the children got back and started playing all of these things started to happen : a stampede, volcano, a lion, and much more. Judy finished the game by making it to the final place called jumanji.

This Caldecott winner by Chris Van Allsburg is a great F story for the classroom. Now a major motion picture, Peter and Judy think they're playing an ordinary board game until they are transported into a crazy fantasy world. I would use this in my classroom as a RA. UDL principle 2.4 and ESOL strategy 17 would help students with this story.

MGrace15 @Olsonashley19 Love this story! Also I had no idea it won a Caldecott which is awesome! 8mo
LaGasseSam1996 I love this story so much. I remember reading it over and over as a kid! I think students would really enjoy the story. 8mo

This Caldecott Medal winning F thriller will have students wish they were playing Jumanji after you do a RA! This book takes students on an adventure just buy playing however it‘s not all fun and games! And of course after reading the book the students will want to watch the movie A resource that I plan on using within my classroom is http://readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/cover-cover-comparing... as it allows the

ATejada the students to complete comparisons between the book and the movie. This book follows ESOL Strategy 14 Simplify your speech by making it slower and redundant as well as UDL Principle 2.5 Illustrate through multiple media. #UCFLAE3414SuB18 1y

So I didn't realize one of my favorite movies from when I was a kid was a book. And Eric didn't realize it was made into a movie in 1995. Thus, we spent our Friday night doing all things Jumanji before we go to see the new one.

SassyBookworm I didn‘t know it was a book! I loved the 1995 movie! Must check out the book now! 🤓 2y

I wasn't aware that the CMC had the Spanish edition, but I'm glad to see they have such accommodations. One of my favorite books growing up as it it for a lot of children around the world. Here's a glog on the author Chris Van Allsburg created by a wonderful UCF student. #checkoutmessup #butitsok #ucflae3414sp17 #jumanji #glogs http://edu.glogster.com/glog/chris-van-allsburg-eph/2toejl67me7/

DrSpalding Impressive Ethan. The Spanish version and your glog! I'm iffy on the new movie set to come out later this year. 3y
AlanaA I like the glog you found because you can pair it with the Spanish book for a multi-lingual lesson! 3y
krystag I used this book for another class and created a lesson plan based on it! Kids love this book especially since they are able to connect it with the movie! A lot of great vocabulary for kids to learn in it as well!! 3y
AmandaN Very cool that you got the Spanish version. I recently got the Spanish version of The Cat in The Hat and I am so excited to have it in my future classroom library. Awesome! 3y

"The idea of the extraordinary happening in the context of the ordinary is what's kind of fascinating to me." HBD to Chris Van Allsburg, born 1949. In prepping this post, I realized how fundamental he was to me and my love of fantasy/genre/weird fiction. (And also why I love Gregory Crewdson.)

ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled I love Gregory Crewdson!! The images are so fascinating and yet also unsettling. 3y
