Caldecott winner. This is a wonderful story to read aloud to young children because they can be engaged and point things out.

This is Not My Hat by Jon Klassen, 2012. This is a wonderful little story about a sneaky little fish who tries to steal a hat. While the words tell some of the story, the illustrations fully tell the other half as the little fish doesn‘t realize what‘s happening around him. The illustrations are muted but detailed and somehow still lively.

Because this is mostly a wordless book, there are no quotes but the pictures tell the humorous story to the young readers.

This is a very simple story that keeps moving forward. A small fish has stolen a hat from a gigantic fish. He thinks he can get away with it. In the end we see the big fish with the hot but we do not see the small fish. It is mostly a wordless book but the artwork is lovely and fun.

"This Is Not My Hat" by Jon Klassen is a wonderful, fictional (F) story that won the Caldecott Award and is powerfully adored by many! Also, teachers can use "This Is Not My Hat" as a storytelling (S) option in their classroom for younger students.
In "This Is Not My Hat," a little fish steals a big fish's hat while the big fish is asleep. The little fish thinks that he will get away with it but the big fish wakes up and starts following him.

caldwellalex95 A crab sees the little fish swimming into tall plants and the crab promises he won't tell anyone where the little fish went. But the crab points the big fish to where the little fish is hiding. The big fish swims into the plants where the little fish is hiding and swims out wearing his hat. An article written by Caroline Von Klemperer and Andy Rodgers on Teaching Children Philosophy's website posted questions for teachers to host in their 2mo
caldwellalex95 Classroom. Depending on the topic, such as stealing, lying, or trusting, teachers can ask questions like "Was it wrong for the little fish to steal the hat? Why or why not?" Students can activate their prior knowledge to answer these questions and contribute to a philosophical discussion. ESOL strategy #4 and UDL's comprehension guidelines (3.1 and 3.3) apply to the "This Is Not My Hat" questions provided in the article. Overall, I absolutely love 2mo
caldwellalex95 this picture book by Jon Klassen, along with its sweet and simple illustrations! #LAE3414SP19 www.teachingchildrenphilosophy.org/BookModule/ThisIsNotMyHat 2mo

This Is Not My Hat, a F Caldecott Medal, tells the story of a little fish who stole a hat from a big fish and thinks he‘s going to get away with it. He puts his trust in someone not knowing it will backfire. This is a good book for a RA or even a DR because kids will take away from the moral of the story. #lae3414sp19

jessicabaksh UDL principle 3.2 (highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships) aligns well with this book. This message of honesty and trust in others are exemplified in this story 2mo
jessicabaksh ESOL strategy 11 (place language in meaningful context) applies well here because of the moral of the story 2mo

This is not my hat was written by Jon Klassen and is a Caldecott winning book that was published in 2013. This story is about a fish that had stole a hat from a big fish that was sleeping. The tiny fish doesn‘t think he will be caught or that the big fish will notice. The fish plans to hide in the tall plants where nobody could find him, until the big fish comes looking for him. Eventually the big fish gets his hat back but we don‘t know how.

This Is Not My Hat (F, Caldecott and Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor, and RA) was such a well-illustrated and adorable story of a fish who stole another fish's hat. He thought he would get away with it... What do you think will happen? This picture book deals with UDL Principles 9.3: Develop self-assessment and reflection and 2.1: Clarify vocabulary and symbols. #LAE3414sp19

gnewman As for an ESOL Strategy, 42: Have students use timelines to arrange and sequence important facts and information, aligns perfectly with this book. Also, an amazing resource for this book is http://www.candlewick.com/book_files/0763655988.kit.2.pdf #LAE3414sp19 3mo

Caldecott and was written in 2012. This book is about a small fish stealing a hat that belonged to a much bigger fish. The small fish thought that he could get away with it because the big wouldn't notice or be able to find him. However at the end the big fish it's his hat back. The theme of this story is that dont take what's not yours. The facial expression of the big really tells the story.

"This is Not My Hat" (TL) by author/illustrator John Klassen is a Caldecott-winning, hilarious, cautionary tale that teaches readers not to take what doesn't belong to you. Narrated by a sneaky fish who steals a sleeping whale's hat, the reader watches him swim away with his prize unaware that the whale is coming to take it back. This is a great RA because students will love listening to the fish and knowing the whale is close behind.
#lae3414sp19

dayuso1 The resource linked below provides many cross-curricular extension ideas. One of them is to prompt a class discussion about why it is wrong to steal, and how the fish could make better choices next time he wants something that isn't his. This utlitizes the ESOL strategy of asking numerous higher level thinking questions (36). For UDL Action and Expression, teachers can allow different response methods like verbal, written or illustrated (4.1). 4mo
DrSpalding Cross curricular connections are fabulous! Nice alignment to UDL and EL strategies! This would make a GREAT storytelling too! 3mo
wmaxflowers This looks like a very cool and unique story. The lesson plan idea of creating a skit out of this seems like it would be impactful! 2mo

The little fish knows the hat does not belong to him, but he is taking it anyway. He is going somewhere that no one will find him, so that he can keep the hat. The big fish will not be able to find him. This is such a cute addition to the other story We Found a Hat, I‘ve always loved Jon Klassen‘s illustrations so much and they always drag me back to his books. Read the story to find out if the small fish gets away with his stolen hat. #UCFLAE3414

sboynt Include this book in your classroom library to promote PR. You could also utilize it through SR, GR, IR, or RA. This online resource has great ideas for classroom activities to align with the book, http://www.teachingideas.co.uk/library/books/this-is-not-my-hat.

#ucflae3414f17 This is Not My Hat is a cute and quick read about a little fish who steals a big fish's hat. He knows it was wrong of him, but figures since the big fish won't know he took it or where he went, that it was okay. This Caldecott award winning F book teaches he lessons that it's not okay to do something you know is wrong just because you think you won't get caught, and would be a great S.

Juliemorell The UDL strategy I would use is 9.1; Promote expectations and beliefs that optimize motivation. The ESOL strategy I would use is #4; link lesson topic to students' prior knowledge. In doing this, I could relate what students already feel about morality to the outcome of the story. 2y
Juliemorell https://www.google.com/amp/s/amandalockwood.wordpress.com/2014/12/04/caldecott-a... this link provides some activities for this book. One that I thought was interesting is asking students to write the last couple of pages, since there are no word, just illustrations. Even though it is pretty clear what happened in the book, kids could get creative with this and work on drawing conclusions. 2y
EricaG This is a great book and love that it can teach us lessons! It would be so fun for students to write the last couple of pages! 2y
DrSpalding I love the hats! I also like the idea of them coming up with their own resolution to the story. While you may think it's obvious, when you allow students to be creative, you never know what you might get. 2y

It is about a small fish taking a big fishes hat and the small fish thinking the big fish won't find out, but he does and gets eaten. Very funny and an engaging book. A lesson plan that would go good with this could be a math problem, the size of the big fish and the small fish and compare and contrast

This Is Not My Hat is a picture book written and illustrated by Jon Klassen and the recipient of the 2013 Caldecott Award. This book could be used in RA, DR, and IR. This picture book follows the story of a small fish who narrates the story. The small fish details with confidence how he stole a hat from a sleeping larger fish, and brings readers along for his journey through the ocean to find the tall patch of seaweed. #ucflae3414f17

elifkelly On his journey through the ocean, the small fish ensures the readers that his stolen hat is safe with him, as the large fish had no way of knowing it was gone. While he continues on his journey, the small fish is unaware that the large fish is in pursuit of him. Readers are able to feel the suspense and urgency build throughout the story. 2y

This is Not My Hat, written and illustrated by Jon Klassen, is a cleverly illustrated F 2013 Caldecott award winner, and would make a great DR book. This picture book follows a small fish who stole a bigger fish‘s hat, and thinks he is getting away with it. This book is great for teaching dramatic irony and a DR of this book could be fun for the whole class. UDL Principle 3.2 (highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships)

KatherineBeckham would work well for this book, because the relationships between the characters is very important to the story, as is the pattern of the events. The ESOL strategy that works for this is 5 (teach technical vocabulary supporting key concepts). For example, teaching the term dramatic irony, would be very helpful for understanding this story better. 2y

This Is Not My Hat is a non fiction picture book that serves as a great RA for your early elementary classroom. This book has been awarded the Caldecott Medal for its illustrations. The story is about a little fish who steals a hat from a larger fish. He tries to hide but in the end, the big fish end up with the hat. This story teaches a wonderful lesson about respecting others belongings, whether you think they deserve it or not.
