Jumanji is a Caldecott award-winning picture book by Chris Van Allsburg that has spawned many major motion pictures. This book is about a brother and sister duo named Peter and Judy who are playing a game called Jumanji. But what they don‘t know is that this is a magical board game that is brought to life when people play. And once the game is started, it must be finished.

The genre of this book is MF.

Nkaufmann I think this book could be used for readers' theatre (RT) as the students will have a fun time acting out this famous story. They could play one of the animals such as a monkey or a snake, the parents, Peter, or Judy. Overall, this will be a very engaging activity for the students to participate in which will in turn lead to them getting a better understanding of the story. 2y
Nkaufmann The UDL principle 5.3 regarding building fluencies with graduated levels of support for practice and performance and the EL principle 16 regarding integrating speaking, listening, reading, and writing activities, can both be met by this book.This activity will help the students become more fluent readers as they are speaking, listening, and reading. Teachers should support their students while they perform their part. 2y
nquintus Hi Naomi! I really like the idea of using an RT strategy with Jumanji. It would increse fluency and engagement! Nice post! 2y
DrSpalding Using the publisher website is a wise choice. I like that you like the strategy of readers theater and hope you will continuously use this in your future classroom. I would always have readers theater scripts going in my classroom. When students finished an assignment early, they could always practice their parts. Assigning their parts as a homework assignment was also part of my regular practice. 2y

Guys, the library that employs me has just closed until April 6th. This is unprecedented. I have been ill and in isolation for nine days! I'm going stir crazy, but nevertheless, I shall appreciate my freedom once I'm well. If you need a book whilst in lockdown, Raven Bookstore is offering $1 shipping within the US. Stay home, buy a book from an indie shop, and if you're the one playing Jumanji, for the love of glob, bury the game! 😆

Andrew65 I‘m focusing on my own books, ebooks and audiobooks during this time. Get well soon. 🤒 Where are you based? (edited) 2y
SiriuslyWeasley @Andrew65 I understand, but I'm always happy to enable a book purchase from an independent shop, haha. Thank you! I'm in central Ohio and we're just starting to see people testing positive for the virus. My symptoms align, but the doctor didn't have the test at my visit on Monday. 2y
Andrew65 @SiriuslyWeasley There are testing pods to go to across the U.K., even doing it in places whilst you wait in the car. We are now in self-isolation mode. I am principal of a school in Yorkshire, England, and no confirmed cases in our school district as of 9 am but 1 or two confirmed cases at least in neighbouring districts. If anyone has a new continuous cough or a high temperature across the U.K. they need to self-isolate for 7 days. 2y
SiriuslyWeasley @Andrew65 That is a brilliant response! I think the US would do well to follow suit. 2y
Andrew65 @SiriuslyWeasley U.K. government does seem to have a clear strategy which is based on scientific evidence and maths modelling. They inspire confidence and doing things differently to many other countries. I hope their decision making is right. 2y

If this is YA & fantasy, maybe I will have to rethink these genres ( Maybe ..,) this might be an exception .
Sooo good ❤️👍🏻

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 3y
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. 2y

(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.
3y
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. 3y
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. 2y

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. 3y
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! 3y
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! 3y

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. 3y
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. 3y

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! 3y
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. 3y

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 4y

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.
