This book is about CJ‘s ride on the bus with his nana after church. He has many questions that continue until his destination. He learns of how fortunate he truly is. This is a RF book that received a Caldecott Honor, the Coretta Scott King Award, and The Newberry Award. The author Matt De La Peña causes children to self reflect and I think he would make for a great AS. This is a link for AS https://www.readingrockets.org/books/authorstudy/reasons

DawnS #UCFLAE3414SU19 This will fit UDL 8.2 of varying demands and resources to optimize challenge and EL strategy 29 offering a variety of reference materials for their levels to complete the AS. 5d
alexialovesmith I chose this boom for my TeachLive assignment and enjoyed it a lot! It is great book to share with students because it teaches them how important it is to appreciate the things you have. 15h
BeverlyMel Great book! I love how you mentioned that it makes him realize just how fortunate he is. It wasn‘t something that came to mind for me when I read it so kudos to you! 15h

Last Stop on Market Street, by Matt De La Peña, was a very sweet RF read that would be good as a RA. It was about a boy realizing the beauty around him with the help of his grandma. It won multiple awards, such as the Caldecott Honor, John Newberry Medal, and the Coretta Scott King award. This website had some nice lesson plans to
use.

jmartucci I would use ESOL strategy 1, teach questioning for clarification, and encourage the students to ask questions about what is happening. UDL 9.3, develop self-assessment and reflection, and allow the students to think about a time when they‘ve helped others. #ucflae3414su19 6d

Last Stop on Market Street is a RF by Matt De La Peña illustrated by Christian Robinson. It is a Newberry Medal winner, Caldecott Honor Book, and a Coretta Scott King Award honoree. This is a story that follows CJ and his grandma on their Sunday bus ride across town. As CJ questions why certain things in his life are the way they are, the people on the bus and his grandmother help him see the good around him.

Apeacock12 https://www.teachingchildrenphilosophy.org/BookModule/LastStop
This website gives purposeful discussion prompts to use in your class. This book is great to use in your class to give students a different perspective on maybe their own lives, while giving insight into the lives of others. This book hits ESOL strategy 1 and UDL 3.2.

Not only did Last Stop on Market street receive a Caldecott Honor but it also received a Newberry Medal as well as the Corretta Scott King award. Written by Matt de la Pena and illustrated by Christian Robinson this is the story of a little boy named CJ who takes a trip with his Nana every sunday. but this particular sunday he‘s not too excited. I liked that this RF made you stop and think about all the little things in life. Great RA or CR

Last Stop on Market Street by Matt de la Pena, Illustrations by Christian Robinson (2016 Newberry Medal, Caldecott Honor, #1NYTBS and Coretta Scott King Award) - This RF story is centered around CJ and his nana. On a bus drive through the city, nana teaches CJ to appreciate the things he has and see the true beauty of the world around him. At the end of the story, CJ and his nana volunteer at their soup kitchen.

alexialovesmith https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/giving-back-ou... This is a perfect activity for teachers and students because it encompasses the theme of the book: beauty and giving back. This activity utilizes ELS11 and UDL9.1 by putting the meaning of the story to life. As a teacher, I would emphasize the importance of this lesson and story through a RA! #ucflae3414su19 6d

The RF book that won three awards, including the Coretta Scott King award in 2016, is a fantastic RA! CJ and his Nana go on the bus every Sunday after church and ride all the way to the last stop of marks street. CJ is not so excited about this adventure and questions why they have to go to the last stop. And what is this last stop? Well you‘ll have to find out! This wonderful book by Matt de la Pena can be used with this link of activities.

Last Stop on Market Street is a picture book written by Matt de la Peña and illustrated by Christian Robinson. This book won the 2016 Newbery Medal, and was awarded both the Coretta Scott King Award and the Caldecott Honor. Falling into the genre of RF, this book could best be taught through a RA. Through a RA, students learn how to read with accurate fluency and teachers can assess student comprehension of the text. #ucflae3414su19 (cont.)

MeganKlein This book tells the story about a boy named CJ who rides the bus across town with his nana on Sundays. It is Nana who teaches CJ to see the beauty of the world around them. The following website includes discussion questions for teachers to ask their students as they read the text aloud. Teachers can use this resource to ignite background knowledge and help students form connections to the text, as well as practice inference-making. 2w

In order for students to fully comprehend this text, students‘ background knowledge must be activated. The discussion questions provided in the link help students make connections to topics and events that occur in this book. (edited) 2w

Facebook was an amazing book about Ceejay and the world around him. He asked is Nana all these questions about why the world wasn‘t even and fair and she came back with a perfect answers. He might not of had the Ipod‘s and had to ride the bus but all of that came with good things too. It ended up that the last stop was a soup kitchen that they volunteered at.

#lae3414sp19 “Last Stop on Market Street” by Matt de la Pena is a realistic fiction story. This book is about a young boy asking his grandma all of the “why‘s” in life. His nana begins to teach him that there are many different ways to look at his surroundings and helps him to find the joy in what is going on around him.

Kcallihan This is a website that provides different levels of word search puzzles for students to complete after reading the book: https://www.rif.org/literacy-central/book/last-stop-market-street. As the teacher, this book could be used to teach students how to look at things from different perspectives and what “perspective” means. 3mo
Kcallihan With this book, I would use the UDL 9.3, “develop self-assessment and reflection” because students can reflect on how they view situations in their own life. The ESOL strategy I would use would be #3, “encourage positive thinking” because this book is all about looking at life in a positive way. 3mo
caldwellalex95 @Kcallihan YES! I absolutely love this picture book! I used this story for my Teach Live assignment and fell in love! I love how the lesson plan you provided is geared toward teaching students about what it means to have your own perspective on something, and how someone else's perspective might differ from yours. Love this post! I am so happy you rated it a "pick"! 3mo

Last stop on market Street is a beautiful realistic fiction story written by Matt de la Peña and illustrations are done by Christian Robinson and it won the Charlotte Zolotow award honor. It‘s about a little boy name CJ and his Nana. Every Sunday after church they take the bus to its last stop, CJ begins to wonder why they always have to take this trip when his friends don‘t have to.

Haleysantucci He wonders why he hast to wait in the rain and why his friends parents have cars when his Nana doesn‘t. It‘s a great book for children to listen to, that‘s why I would do a read aloud for this book. I would use UDL principles 1.2 and 4.1 since I would be doing a read aloud and trying to make it interactive. 3mo

The last stop on Market street by Matt de la Pena is a Caldecott winning book that was published in 2015. It is about a boy that is always asking questions about to his nana about their life style verses other people. His nana is trying to shape CJ to be a kind boy and CJ is wondering why she does what she does. Most of the story is told from inside the bus that CJ is riding after church. Music had brought CJ a certain joy and relieved him.

"Last Stop on Market Street" (by Matt de la Pena and illustrated by Christian Robinson) is a wonderful RF children's picture book and an inspirational, motivational RA. Not only has this story won the Newbery Award, but it has also been awarded the Caldecott Award!
"Last Stop on Market Street" is about a young boy named CJ who rides the bus around town with his grandma every Sunday after church.

caldwellalex95 CJ questions his grandma about why others appear to live a "better" life than him. Despite CJ's discouraged attitude, his grandma continues to show him hidden beauty in the most unexpected places. This book can be used to start a class discussion on diversity. What does diversity mean to you? "Teaching Children's Philosophy's" website, www.teachingchildrenphilosophy.org/BookModule/LastStop goes into depth about how a teacher can 5mo
caldwellalex95 create several lessons, including a lesson in diversity, based off of "Last Stop on Market Street". This stimulating childrens book promotes ESOL strategy #1 and #10, along with UDL's comprehension guideline (3.2). "Last Stop on Market Street" is a positively humbling reading experience that anyone at any age will enjoy! #LAE3414SP19 5mo

This RF picture book written by Matt de la Peña and illustrated by Christian Robinson is rightfully awarded the Newbery Medal and Caldecott Honor awards. Any educator should consider adding this high quality book to their classroom libraries. With developmentally appropriate language, this book would be excellent as a RA in the elementary setting. This book teaches the lesson of being grateful for what you have and seeing the beauty in all things.

kkimmelman The UDL strategies 2.1 and 2.3 would be appropriate to support the high quality thinking and clarification of comprehension during a read aloud. ESOL strategy 1 regarding questioning for clarification is also useful in that it promotes students looking deeper into the text. 5mo

Last Stop On Market Street (2016 Newbery Winner) is a RF story, written by Matt De La Peña, about kindness and diversity in everyday life.

Christian Robinson‘s simple shapes and colors truly bring this story to life. This is a perfect RA story for any classroom. #LAE3414sp19

melindamcmullen84 UDL 9.3: develop self assessment & reflection and ESOL 17: providing contextual support through visuals, facial expressions, body language, demonstrations, etc. are two great ones for this book.

As CJ and his nana travels in a bus to Market Street, he wonders out loud why they don't have a car, why do they have to go to church, why a passenger in the bus can't see, as she points out the real beauty behind all that he sees. A children's book that not only teaches diversity using its words, but its illustrations too represented people from all walks of life.

The EL strategies I would use are (13), use preview/ review activities and (16), integrate speaking, listening, reading and writing activities. The UDL strategies I would use are 2.1 and 2.2 clarify (edited) 12mo

Last Stop on Market Street written by Matt de la Pena illustrated by Christian Robinson is a great RF picture book for kids. The story is about Cj and his grandmother as they travel by bus from church to a soup kitchen. This book teaches kids an important lesson; to look for the beauty in everything. The ESOL STRAT could be 3 to encourage students to talk about something beautiful they saw that day after an RA in Kindergarten. (Cont in comments)

Kaelya This picture book won several awards, the Caldecott, Coretta Scott and the Newbery. The UDL that matches best with this is 7.2 because it optimizes relevance and gives value to the story. #UCFLAE3414SuB18 #findingwinnie #Scholastic http://mattdelapena.com/ (edited) 12mo

An extraordinary picture book of RF. Last Stop on Market Street by Matt De la Peña and illustrated by Christian Robinson, won the 2016 Newbery Medal, a Coretta Scott King illustrator Honor, and a Caldecott Honor. This book would be great for a RA. It tells the story of a young boy named CJ, whom with the help of his grandma learns to appreciate the beauty in everyday things.

RossoS The website https://www.teachingchildrenphilosophy.org/BookModule/LastStop includes guidelines for philosophical discussion which you could include before, during and after the RA. This website it‘s a great resource to promote conversations with your students about the different topics explored in this book such as diversity, inequity, happiness and many more. 12mo
RossoS Additionally, by reading this book in your classrooms you could meet the UDL principle 8.3- foster collaboration and community, as you encourage and support opportunities for interactions, as well as the ESOL strategy 36- asking questions that require higher level responses. #UCFLAE3414SuB18 12mo
DrSpalding You have consistently done a nice job of aligning EL and UDL principles. 12mo

I liked this one and so did my daughter. The illustrations are fun and colorful. And the story is simple but cute and includes lower income neighborhoods and people of color, which is sadly rare for picture books. The message too, to look for the bright side, is great. But I am confused as to why this won the Newbery Medal in 2016 when the award usually goes to novels. #newbery

LibrarianJen I remember reading an article or two about the award given to this and how people were surprised. I ❤️ Matt de la Peña! 1y
thebluestocking @LibrarianJen I‘ll have to go hunting. It‘s a great book, it just doesn‘t seem to fit in the Newbery category. 14mo
LibrarianJen I think because it‘s a diverse read and there isn‘t really anything like it. 14mo

Boy accompanies his grandmother on a bus ridge through their neighborhood. How she sees things is very different from how he does. It is set up like a picture book, but the material is good for the older than toddler set. If you're looking for a book that teaches empathy and compassion without beating the kids over the head, this is a good one. #NewberyChallenge

GatheringBooks this is an awesome read. 1y

This is a HF book I have been wanting to read for a long time and finally got around to it. This book tells the story of CJ who rides the bus with this grandma every Sunday after church but has questions as to why he doesn‘t have a car or nice things like many of the people he knows. This is a great book that shows the bond between children/grandparents and also educates as it tells the story. Great for upper elementary levels. #ucflae3414sp18

devin.s This would be a great LC book so that the questions students may have are able to be discussed. Here is a link to a teacher‘s guide on this book: http://www.carolhurst.com/titles/laststoponmarket.html UDL: 1.1, 2.1, 2.3, 2.4, 3.1 ELL: 1, 5, 11, 13 1y

This book was the Caldecott winner in 2016, realistic fiction story that would be great for a read aloud to a class. This book is about a young boy who rides the bus with his grandma after church on Sunday, and he starts complaining comparing his life and what they do to other people (why do we have to ride the bus?). Then grandma points out all the amazing things and interesting people they get to meet and see because they ride the bus.

Kendallc #ucflae3414sp18 ESOL: 20, list the most important words and phrases you use or plan to use in a presentation on a transparency or on a chalkboard (list the difficult words and explain before the story). UDL: activate or supply background knowledge (before reading ask if anyone has ridden a bus) 1y

paulettevp I also wrote a Litsy post on this book. I haven‘t started buying many books for my classroom library yet but I couldn‘t help myself had to buy this one right now. Have you seen the video where the actual author reads the story to a group of kids on the bus? https://vimeo.com/195970431 1y

CJ‘s nana gives him the perspective about focus on what you have rather than what you lack. All the while taking him to the Soup Kitchen after Church. He encounters different people on that short “journey”.

paulettevp I think this a great book for CR because of CJ‘s complaints are met by his grandmother‘s quick responses. Students can practice fluency while being motivated to follow along and practice reading. 1y
paulettevp UDL 5.3: They may have a shoulder partner help them through the CR as the strategy builds on fluency. 1y
paulettevp ESOL 16: By having the students follow along with the reading while participating in the Choral Reading they will be integrating speaking, listening, and reading in one activity/strategy. 1y

#UCFLae3414F17 Last Stop on Market Street is a Caldecott and Newbery award winning RF text, written by Matt De La Pena. The story tells of a boy and his nana who are taking the bus. The boy keeps asking why they don‘t have certain things and why they must ride the bus. Nana always found the bright side and made what they had seem great. The story ends when they get off the bus to volunteer at a soup kitchen, making CJ feel grateful. This story

This RF book written by Matt de la Peña and illustrated by Christian Robinson is a three time award winner receiving the Caldecott, Newberry Medal, and the Coretta Scott King. It‘s a heart warming story of a boy named CJ and his grandmother and their journey on the bus to the last stop on Market Street. Identifying several different cultures and differences people have and how they make the best of them. #ucflae3414f17

This touching RF has been awarded the Newbery Medal, the Caldecott Honor, and the Coretta Scott King Honor. This is a great book to utilize as a RA to encourage students to appreciate what they have and be understanding of others. #ucflae3414f17

I really liked the Your Beautiful World activity which requires students to keep a journal with pictures about what they stop and observe for 10 minutes a day. 2y
cheyennewilliams UDL strategy 7.2, optimize relevance, value, and authenticity, goes along with the lesson where students are relating the book to their own lives by stopping to observe the world around them each day. (edited) 2y

The Last stop on Market Street written by Matt De La Pena and illustrated by Christian Robinson tells the story of Cj and his grandmother as they take a bus ride and admire the beautiful and vibrant life of the city around them.
They find the beauty in the rain and in the people they meet like the man with a guitar, the woman in curlers with butterflies in a jar, and the man who cannot see.

ChelseaPerez This book emphasizes the importance of watching and paying attention to the beauty of the world around you and it‘s people. It reminds us that you can always find beautiful in where you never think to look.
This Coretta Scott King Award winner would be a wonderful Read Aloud book.

This RF RA picture book won 3 awards: the Cadlecott, Newberry, and Coretta Scott King award. This is a story about a boy that rides the bus with his grandma every sunday, but one Sunday, he starts to ask questions like “why dont we have a car?” And “why dont I have an IPad like my friends?”. During the bus ride, his grandmother responds with encouraging answers and shows him the fun in their routine every Sunday.

Brittanyradzak I would use UDL principle 1.3 to offer alternatives for visual information. I would also use ESOL strategy 3 to encourage self-talk. http://www.theclassroombookshelf.com/2015/03/last-stop-on-market-street/ there are so many different activities in this resource like defining beauty, focusing on imagery, and diverse characters! #ucflae3414f17 2y
