Caldecott Medal Book. This was a short and fast paced read. It is humorous because it is about cows that can type. The illustrations are simple, but wonderful.

I thought it was funny how the cows first went on strike, and then they got the chickens to go on strike, and then at the end I thought it was funny how the ducks got what they wanted too.

This Caldecott Medal is a hilarious story about farm animals that have a typewriter and leave notes for the farmer. Doreen Cronin writes a F story perfect for RA. #ucflae3414su19
https://www.the-best-childrens-books.org/Click-Clack-Moo-Cows-That-Type.html is resourceful for teachers who want to know more about the story, find activities for your classroom around the text, and preview a sample of the book.

DezireeLara UDL Principle 3.1, activate or supply background knowledge can be done through an activity around farm animals with the student, prior to reading the story. An ESOL strategy for this RA can be contextual support through audio or videos. The class can do a RT and act out the characters in the story. It‘s a short story that students would enjoy! 2mo
DrSpalding This makes for a wonderful readers theater and read aloud. Quality post with nice detail. Use this book in your future classroom. 1mo

Click Clack Moo, a F picture book written by Doreen Cronin and Illustrated by Betsy Lewin, would be a great book to use for RT. This book is a Caldecott Award winner, so you‘re in for a treat when it comes to illustrations in this book. This story is a great tool to use in the classroom to help students understand that teamwork is vital when you are trying to accomplish a big task. (Cont.) #ucflae3414su19

galacticbees (Cont.) UDL strategy 5.3 and ESOL strategy 16 work best with this resource: https://teachers.net/lessons/posts/2277.html

Written by Doreen Cronin and illustrated by Betsy Lewin, this comical MF and Caldecott Honor picture book tells the story about cows that type. Farmer Brown‘s cows (and hens) type him letters asking for electric blankets. Things only become worse for Farmer Brown and the demands that his animals have. This book would be perfect for a RT or an AS. Doreen Cronin writes several hilarious books just like this one! #ucflae3414su19

MeganKlein UDL strategy 7.2 and EL strategy 3 align with this text because once students read this book by Doreen Cronin, they‘ll be wanting to read her other books. The humor portrayed through this text is evident and kids will absolutely love this silly story about cows that type. http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/learning-about-wo... This resource provides a very thorough lesson (cont.) (edited) 2mo

#lae3414 This F written by Doreen Cronin and Illustrated by Betsy Lewin is a classroom library essential! In this book, farm animals decide to go on strike until their needs are met. This book is great for a RA because the story is too funny it deserves to be shared

mluter This is a great lesson plan that comes straight from cpalms! Students will pinpoint key details to describe the characters, setting, and events from the book. With this information, they will then create their own similar style flip book. UDL 3.2. The ESOL strategy I would use is 32 to allow students to work in pairs so they are sure to be picking out only the important information from the book. 5mo

Click, Clack, Moo, Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin and illustrated by Betsy Lewin (F, Caldecott, * New York Times Best Seller, and RA) is a cute picture book about a couple of cows who keep leaving Farmer Brown notes. Read the book to find out what will happen next! This book is great to show UDL Principles 7.1: Optimize individual choice and autonomy, 2.1: Clarify vocabulary and symbols, and 1.3: Offer alternatives for visual information.

gnewman In an interactive read aloud, I will make sure that the EL students have enough wait time to respond to the questions that will be asked. This will allow them to be a part of the whole group and have a fun time as they dive into the story. In addition, I found a great instructional plan for grades k-2 to go along with the read aloud. It teaches about word families. 7mo

Click, Clack, Moo Cows That Type, written by Doreen Cronin and illustrated by Betsy Lewin, is a Caldecott Winning (F) book. Farmer Brown has cows they are refusing services unless their terms are met. Can they come to an agreement? The story is great for kids in grades K-5 as a RL, RT, or PR.

WoodsKatie This book can be for ULD Guidelines 8.2, 3.1, and 3.2 as well as ESOL 1 and 4. Read, Write, Think has a great lesson that teaches about word families alongside the book. Doreen Cronin also has activities on her website linked to some of her other books in the series. http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/learning-about-wo...

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.

taywise393 I remember reading this book as a child and I would love to add this to my future classroom collection! I would use this book as a PR and it would satisfy UDL 8.3. An ESOL strategy is 2 & 10. A lesson plan that I would use with this book is http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/learning-about-wo... and I would introduce word families.

Click, Clack, Moo Cows that type is a F picture book by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin. This book won the Caldecott Honor award. This would be a fun PR. This book is about farm animals who go on strike and use a type writer to write notes to Farmer Brown! And ESOL Strategy is 2. Which is to promote cooperation in small groups. The students can have partner reading this book or reading it in a small group! A UDL would be 8.3

emilybanne Which is to foster collaboration and community. The students can read together in a safe environment and talk about the book as they go along. A great activity can be found: https://www.teachingideas.co.uk/library/books/click-clack-moo-cows-that-type here is a cool writing activity where the kids can write a story about an animal doing something animals can't do! Like type, dance, sing. 14mo

The Caldecott Award winning F book Click Clack Moo Cows that Type is one of my favorite reads and would be a great book for RT. This humorous books is sure to get a few giggles from even your toughest kids. It seems as though no one on the farm is content with Farmer Brown and now they refuse to work! This lesson would go great with UDL 5.3 Bulid fluencies with graduated levels of support for practice and performance as the kids will have to

ATejada rehearse their lines. This lesson will also go great with ESOL strategy 2 which is to Promote cooperation as the students will have to perform together.

This engaging animated picture book of F, is definitely a must have in your classroom library. Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type is a Caldecott Honor book that would be great for RT. This book tells the story of Farmer Brown‘s cows. These cows find an old typewriter and start typing letters to Farmer Brown making demands, things start to get real when the cows go on strike when the farmer refuses to give them what they want.

RossoS Your students will have a hilarious time as Farmer Brown‘s farm turns upside down. This link http://www.thebestclass.org/uploads/5/6/2/4/56249715/cowsthattype.pdf will take you to a script of the story that you could use for the RT to help your students developing reading fluency.

RossoS through this book. This book is amazing and can be used in many ways in our classrooms. As you share this book with your students, you could meet ESOL strategy 2- promote cooperation, as your students work together in the RT. You could also meet UDL principle 1.2- offers alternatives for auditory information, as you provide students with the scripts. #UCFLAE3414SuB18 (edited) 1y

This F by Doreen Cronin is a Caldecott award winning book great for grades K-2 for RA, GR, DR, or S. I would use this for GR with repeated readings for expression and fluency, having students work in pairs after scaffolded through GR to act out part of the text. This cute book tells the story of a farmer who has to find a way to meet the demands of his farm animals who know how to type & leave notes demanding and electric blanket. #ucflae3414sp18

This is a rhythmical story that will keep students engaged while also helping them to read with fluency. The cows have a problem with Farmer Brown and life on the farm and they wont give him what he wants until he gives them what they want. Soon, many farm animals go on strike and Farmer Brown doesn‘t have much of a choice. Read the story to find out what decision Farmer Brown makes and what it is the cows want from him. #UCFLAE3414

sboynt This is a great story to present as a RT to go with the text. It keeps students engaged, actively participating, and helps with their fluency and expression while reading. Find a RT script here https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Click-Clack-Moo-Cows-that-Type-Reade... for your classroom. Other teaching strategies for this book could include CR, GR, PR, or SR. 1y
