2013 Caldecott Honor book published in 2012. Creepy Carrots by Aaron Reynolds is a hilarious book about a bunny who has a passion for carrots and love to eat them all the time. Until something unfortunate happens. This is a great book to read for the fun and laughs that it provides.

102 picture books with my boys for #scarathlon2021! It's hard to pick a fav, but our new favorite of the year has to be Creepy Carrots! My 4-year-old is obsessed and now even my 2-year-old knows all the places to *gasp* by heart. It was a hit! Creepy Underpants is good as well, but doesn't quite capture my boys like the franken-carrots. 🥕😋

This Caldecott Honor book about Jasper the rabbit who loves his carrots, maybe too much because he gets greedy and the carrots somehow come to live in this quirky story about greed. A great book for teaching children a lesson in greed.

Creepy Carrots! 🥕 This MF, RA, Caldecott Honor Book was my TeachLive Read Aloud choice. I love this book! Creepy Carrots is about a little rabbit named Jasper Rabbit who LOVES his carrots. It seems he becomes a little greedy and takes them whenever he likes. Somehow the carrots have come to life, and now he‘s frightened of them. The reoccurring theme in this MF story is greed. We see this because Jasper Rabbit just can‘t get enough! The UDL...

acassatta Principle 2.1- clarify vocabulary and symbols works well with this book because of the various vocabulary words used in the text. ESOL strategy #5- teach technical vocabulary supporting key concepts goes hand-in-hand with the chosen UDL principle. The following link takes you to a YouTube video read aloud of the story “Creepy Carrots” that can be used in the classroom. https://youtu.be/NJnIEbVLq90 #ucflae3414sp21 2y
PatriciaS I loved this book, the illustrations are great and the stories lesson even better. Great book for teaching children a wonderfully quirky story about greed. 2y
DrSpalding I am glad you fell in love with this particular title when you selected it for your read aloud. Take a look at the author website and publisher website for even more resources about utilizing this book in your future classroom. 2y

This entertaining book about a rabbit named Jasper who loves eating carrots that grow in Crackenhopper Field. The carrots start following Jasper everywhere. This book would be a read aloud to kindergarten-2nd grade students. The lesson plan that I provided below would be beneficial to do after the read aloud. There‘s a worksheet that allows readers to make connections through drawings. A UDL strategy I would use would be 2.1 vocabulary journal.

olivia_danko The EL strategy I'd use for this book would be 5 (check frequently for understanding) #ucflae3414sp21

Here's the link for my lesson plan: https://mrswillskindergarten.com/creepy-carrots-lesson-plans/

Creepy Carrots by Aaron Reynolds with illustrations by Peter Brown is a New York Times Best Seller animal fantasy story about a bunny named Jasper. Jasper loved eating the carrots that grew in Crackenhopper Field until one day he believed them to have started following him. I think this book would be great for a class read-aloud because it is suspenseful and can be told with a lot of enthusiasm.

emilypalkovich This link contains a great activity to use in the classroom during a read-aloud. The worksheet under “making predictions“ can evoke thought and ensure comprehension of the story by having students draw a picture about what might happen later in the story. https://deannajump.com/creepy-carrots-read-aloud-lessons/. A good UDL guideline for Creepy Carrots is Recruiting Interest. 2y
emilypalkovich Since it is aimed toward younger students, it becomes extra important to minimize distractions. An EL strategy for this book would be number 14: “simplify your speech”, since it would most likely be done as a read-aloud. This is a quick and easy way to strengthen EL understanding without making them feel called out in front of their peers. #ucflae3414sp21

This MF, Caldecott silver medal and New York Times Bestseller book, Creepy Carrots, is one that would be great for your classroom library. Jasper Rabbit can‘t seem to get enough of the carrots in Crackenhopper field, until one day he notices something creepy! The carrots were following him! This is a great book for a RA, where teachers can set objectives like making predictions, or being able to tell the parts of the story. #ucflae3414sp21

Adodd1 In addition, this website gives great examples of how to use this book in a RA while practicing making predictions with students! https://deannajump.com/creepy-carrots-read-aloud-lessons/ The UDL strategy that can be used would be 3.1 and 3.2 which both provide options for comprehension. The EL strategies that would apply best would be 44 and 14, which would be best during the RA. 2y
DrSpalding All 10 required posts are noted! You made wonderful book selections! Many award winners included along with high quality resources. Make sure that you include the verbiage that goes along with the English learner strategy and UDL principle. Remember you only need to have one of each that way you have room to include the verbiage and how they align to your resource/strategy. 2y

This MF, RA Caldecott award winning book would be a wonderful addition to your classroom library that your children will love! The theme of this book is to not be too greedy, and to work towards finding a solution if you‘re facing a problem. Jasper rabbit frequently snacks on carrots, but soon becomes scared of them as he is convinced they‘re following him. In the end, he uses his problem solving skills to find a solution.

Karissacurrier https://www.readingrockets.org/article/reading-aloud-build-comprehension

This would be best as a RA, using the recommending comprehension strategies from Reading Rockets. The UDL principles 3.1 and 3.3 regarding the activation of background knowledge and information processing, and the EL 15 and 17 reiterating important text information and using props or GAP will aid in students comprehension.

Oh so creepy! This MF book is great for a spooky and creepy RL for many ages and grade levels. Written by Aaron Reynolds and Illustrated by Peter Brown. This book is a NYTBS and won a Caldecott Medal. The book follows Peter Rabbit around while he eats and gets taunted by carrots. Throughout the book you'll be looking over your shoulder to make sure no carrots are coming for you. Peter Rabbit learned his lesson throughout this story #ucflae3414su20

UDL standard strategies that can be accomplished through a read aloud of “Creepy Carrots!” is 2.1 and 3.2. These standards allow deeper comprehension of vocabulary and understanding of important details from the book. An ELL strategy that can be used by reading this book is #20, which states that the teacher can list important words of phrases before the reading begins to the students.

This F picture book is a fun addition to a classroom and is a Caldecott award winner! This book is great for teaching about predictions and differing points of view. Creepy Carrots is about a rabbit named Jasper who simply cannot stop eating carrots! Until they begin to follow him. Getting to the end of the book you might realize that the carrots are not as dangerous as Jasper thinks..

You can use UDL principle 3.2 Highlighting Patterns, Critical Features, Big Ideas and relationships to form these predictions.

LizzettM Great use of snacks this will be a great tool to use in the classroom! 3y
Keishla.O I love how you used the carrots! I did something similar. I think when I do a RA in my class with this book I‘m going to use puff Cheetos as a snack. 3y

VictoriaG Favorite snack- pizza! 😂 3y
DrSpalding Use the rubric! Fun picture… But that is just one part. Review my sample, Red: A Crayon‘s Story. 🖍 3y
KatiaP You can use UDL 9.1: Promote expectations and beliefs that optimize motivation by tellingthe studentswhat you expectwhile readingthe story and keepingthem involved. You can also have students bring their favorite snacks while you read the story.An ESOL strategy you can use is reinforce the key ideas you present again and again.

F,Caldecott AW,Creepy Carrots is a great addition to any grade levels library!Its best used as a RA so the teacher can help facilitate predictions.

Some UDL principles that go along with these strategies are 3.2&3.3 regarding predicting and highlighting critical features happening within the story, paired with ESOL strategies 13&15 which touch on previewing and reviewing.

DrSpalding Make sure you include a brief summary. Nice job aligning universal design and English learner strategies. Remember that only one is required.❤️📚 3y

When all else fails, read to your dog. This awesome MF book by Aaron Reynolds tells the story of Jasper Rabbit and his love for the carrots of Crakenhopper field, until they start following him. This Caldecott award winner would be great for a RA to teach that sometimes too much of a good thing can be bad. (https://www.simonandschuster.com/authors/Aaron-Reynolds/76515508) UDL principal 9.1 promote expectations and beliefs that optimize motivation.

Madison_swart The ESOL strategy of placing language in meaningful context can be used well in this book. This would be a great addition to any classroom library. #UCFLAE3414SP20 (edited) 3y
Keishla.O I had the same book! I practiced my TeachLive by reading to my dog. This book is such a cute read for kids but beware, some kids might get scared of the carrots. I learned that in my TeachLive so emphasize that the book is Fantasy. 3y
DrSpalding Fabulous post and cute pup! His teeth! Excellent resource utilizing the publisher and nice alignment to the English learner and universal design principles.❤️🐕 3y
ShardaeP I think the dog is supposed to look creepy (like a play on the book title), but that is a cute dog! The description of the book makes me want to read it. We all have something that we like maybe too much. 3y
Ryan_R First of all, I love your dog! The theme and concept of having too much a good thing is a very unique and uncommon theme, so I think it‘s wonderful that you highlighted this. Great work! 3y

DrSpalding Make sure you use the rubric. You need to include a web resource that aligns to the English learner and universal design principle you select for this book. Use the codes and the verbiage that we reviewed in class. Excellent choice and cute picture. 3y
DrSpalding Apply these comments to your other posts. 3y
Keishla.O UDL principle 3.2 (Highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships) can be used during/after the RA.
ESOL strategy 22 (Give enough wait time for second language learners to respond to questions) can be used when questioning the students during the UDL 3.2
execution.
