Pickpick

The Newbery Honor and New York Times Best Selling Book, Hoot would be perfect for a LC. It's a RF book written by Carl Hiaasen. Roy just moved to Florida from Montana. Roy ends up making a friend called Mullet Fingers who constantly tries to delay the construction of a new pancake house on a site that is home to endangered burrowing owls. Can Roy and his new friends stop the construction completely or will this turn into a disaster? #UCFLAE3414F19

JRone ESOL strategy #13 Use preview/review activities would be beneficial for children using this book in a literature circle so they can recall what they read. Using UDL strategy 8.3 Foster collaboration and community aligns with the literature circles because students are meeting together to collaborate and share what they read. 1w
JRone https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/picturing-stor... is a lesson plan that goes in-depth with the book's details using characters, setting, plot, etc. to “picture the story.“ 1w

Hoot by Carl Hiaasen is a Newbery award winning RF novel and is perfect for a fourth through sixth grade classroom to be used as a LC, IR, or class read SR. The story is based in Florida and includes the themes of bullying, friendships, and environmentalism and could be used to tie into language arts and science classes! I would use UDL strategies 8.3, 7.2, 4.1 and ESOL strategies 4, 10, 19, and 42. #ucflae3414f19

#Audiobookwalk in the drizzle. Thankful that the heat has broken, but the humidity is still killing me. The dogs had to wear their jackets because the pit bull is a big baby and hates getting wet. 😄
Sadly, given the book, we did not see any burrowing owls.

This is a good mystery book for anyone who doesn‘t like a book that‘s too intense. It‘s also kind of a feel good, animal activist book. This could inspire kids to stand up for what they care about! (In this case it‘s owls)

🦉Carl Hiaasen‘s John Newbery Award winning book Hoot is a great RF book for upper elementary to beginning middle school classes. While it can be considered a lengthy book, splitting the chapters up by having students in LC or a class wide SR could make the “load” seem easier. It is based in Florida and the story follows themes of growing up, friendship, bullying, and environmentalism. #LAE3414sp19

ha_kaye This book could be used to introduce concepts of environmental science or endangered species. The UDL strategies that would fit into the reading of Hoot could include 1.1-3, 2.1, 3.1-4, 4.1-2, 7.2, and 8.3. To accommodate ESOL students 4,7,8,9,10,17,19,20,27,29,42,44, and 50 would be great! Having an EL student work in a group setting while doing graphic organizers like story strips would be great for their comprehension! 9mo
ha_kaye This lesson would be tie perfectly into the ESOL strategies I thought were important. https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/picturing-stor... 9mo
DrSpalding I like that you mentioned the many themes present in this book. You are correct that these would be exemplified by reading this book aloud or possibly in literature circle groups. Scholastic is a high-quality resource. See previous comments regarding UDL and ESOL. 9mo
DrSpalding Newbery has one R. 🙂 Science integration! Love it! 9mo

I loved that this book was set in Florida and the author is from there as well its a fast-paced story a few parts made me laugh and the nature aspect about saving the owls was a really good addition to the story. All the characters were really strong and well rounded, each character had their part to play. This was my first time reading any books by Carl Hiaasen but it won‘t be my last, great story.

Great YA novel about Roy, the new kid, and the colorful middle school classmates he acquires while they try to save the protected burrowing owl families from corporate greed.

This realistic fiction book was the 2003 Newbery honor award, and would be great for IR in the class. The story is about how a newcomer makes some friends and they begin to take a stand against a new construction. A new pancake house is to be built upon the burrows of owls who live there, and they do everything in their power to protect the owls and stop the construction from happening, in both conventional and unconventional ways. #ucflae3414sp18

Kendallc The link takes you to a YouTube video of the trailer for the movie Hoot. There students can be encouraged to watch it and compare the book to the movie https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgT_xT587MY 2y
Kendallc ESOL: 30 encourage the use of diagrams and drawings as aids to identify concepts and seeing relationships UDL: 3.3 guide information processing, visualization, and manipulation. (edited) 2y
KhyaraN I remember watching this movie before i read the book! I loved how the author is so focused on the environment in all his novels! 2y
paulettevp This is one of those books that could teach so many things from friendship, animal extinction, human disregard for nature, and what money means in society. I would most definitely have them watch the movie. To me, it‘s almost a classic. 2y
devin.s I forgot about this book! It is so resourceful to have in the classroom, there are a lot of lessons to be learned! 2y

Day 5: Set In Your Country or City #marchinbooks18
I have not read any books set in my city and a lot of my books are set in my country. So I decided to go with a book in my state. I live in Florida and I really haven‘t read that many books that take place here. Hoot is the only one that stands out in my mind and I love this book!

Hoot, a RF Newbery honor book, written by Carl Hiaasen is a great book for LC or IR for upper elementary and middle school students. The book is about a boy who moves to Coconut Cove, FL and winds up trying to stop construction of a Pancake House to save burrowing owls. I think students would enjoy reading this story because it takes place in Florida!

EricaG After reading, the teacher can show the movie and have the students compare and contrast the book and the movie. This could align with UDL 3.2 highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships and EL 45- use Venn diagrams to compare and contrast activities. https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/picturing-stor... The link takes you to a scholastic lesson plan to use with the book. #UCFLAE3414F17 (edited) 2y

Hoot is a great book written by Carl Hiaasen that is RF. It has won the Newbery Award and would be great for a partner activity in the classroom. http://www.sandtpublications.com/hootlessonplans.html is a great website for lesson plans for Hoot. UDL: 4.1- vary the methods for response and navigation, EL: use language experience techniques in discussing concepts and ideas. #UCFLAE3414F17
