I love this book! A classic folktale about a witch who leaves town and Big Anthony tries to cast one of her spells! Because he didn‘t watch her all the way, he ends up causing a big mess! Luckily Strega Nona comes back, and all that is damaged is Big Anthony‘s stomach from all the pasta he must eat/clean up!

3.5/5⭐ Sometimes you just need to read a kid's book about an old Italian witch beloved by her town.

Plot is nearly identical to that of The Magic Pot by Margie Bell. #bookspinbingo #doublespin

Strega Nona is a charming TL picture book about a village‘s beloved old “grandmother witch,” her magic pasta pot, and a naughty servant boy whose attempt to use magic goes very wrong! This book, charmingly written and Illustrated by Tomie dePaola, won a Caldecott honor. It can be part of an SEL unit about personal actions and consequences. https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/strega-nona-le...
#ucflae3414su20

nquintus This TL book is meant to entertain, as well as to teach a lesson. It would be a fantastic RA story, as it has plenty of opportunity to be read with expression and gestures that would benefit all students in an elementary classroom. As part of an RA strategy, Strega Nona coincides with the UDL guideline 9.3 about the development of self-assessment and reflection. It would also align with ESOL strategy 17. 3y
DrSpalding Sadly, the author passed away this past spring. His books are fabulous for read aloud and storytelling options in your classroom. I highly recommend an author study as well. 3y

This F Caldecott winner is a classic that I remember from Elementary school. Strega Nona (which means Grandma Witch) is a woman who uses potions and her “magic touch“ to help the people in her town in Calabria. Big Anthony is Strega Nona's assistant and although he means well, his inability to pay attention gets him into a huge mess. He breaks her one rule and touches the pasta pot, resulting in a gigantic pasta mess that only Strega Nona can fix.

Kyleigh_J This book is perfect for an RA as students might need help understanding the book. This video is a great resource to show after the RA, since it includes pictures and videos of the illustrations as the story is read. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGVXwMX0e5w&vl=en
UDL 2.4 promote understanding across languages is satisfied as this book contains rich Italian culture and traditions. For example, Strega Nona is Italian for Grandma Witch.

Kyleigh_J EL27 highlight written materials for readability by enlarging the size print is satisfied by the video resource if you turn on closed captions. EL's will be able to read the words as they are spoken to improve their vocabulary and comprehension.

In creating this post I discovered that Tomie DePaola has just passed away and the world of children's literature has taken a huge loss. This book is one I remember from my own elementary years and I plan to continue teaching Tomie DePaola's works in my future classrooms. Strega Nona is the first in the series of Strega Nona tales. This is a TL Caldecott winning picture book about an elderly woman named Strega Nona who uses her magic to help

deiacovab all the people in the town. Once she hires a man to help her around the house and he finds a way to use Strega Nona's powers to show off to the town. Unfortunately the man didn't follow all of the steps Strega Nona normally does and causes chaos. I would use this book for RA using this resource for the lesson https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/blog-posts/nicole-kent/bring-magic-your-clas... 3y
deiacovab There is a writing activity to help establish student comprehension in the resource where I would incorporate ESOL strat. 6. Continually monitor students‘ comprehension and UDL 5.2 use multiple tools for construction and composition. #ucflae3414sp20 3y
DrSpalding Your posts are thoughtful and encompass all necessary elements according to the rubric. We were so sad to hear of his passing.

Sad news in the book world. CNN is reporting that Tomie dePaola died yesterday after complications from surgery after a fall in his barn which he used as a studio. Such a wonderful author and illustrator whose books many of us grew up with, books which are, of course, still staples in many libraries.

Strega Nona (Grandma Witch) written by: Tommie dePaola is a TL folktale about not allowing your greed and curiosity get the best of you. The UDL 1.3 regarding offering alternatives for visual information along with EL 4 for linking lesson topic to students' prior knowledge. It can be incorporated into many classroom lessons, which agrees with educational standards. #UCFLAE3414F19

The TL PB Strega Nona written and illustrated by Tomie dePaola, a Caldecott winner, is a perfect choice for PR in your PK-5th classes. Strega Nona is a nice, old witch with a love for pasta. She hires a boy named Big Anthony to help her with her chores around her house. Big Anthony observes her singing to the pasta when magically, all of a sudden, she has a large pot of pasta! This PB teaches the consequences of being dishonest. #UCFLAE3414F19

Camrynm The UDL principle I would use would be 1.2: Offer alternatives for auditory information. In the PB, Strega Nona has a special magic chant that the students could listen to or they could make up on their own. Students could also look at pictures of Italy to better understand where Strega Nona lives. The EL strategy I would use would be 17. Provide contextual support through audio visuals, models, demonstrations, exc. 3y

Strega Nona is a TL PB and Caldecott winner written and illustrated by Tomie DePaola. It is about a boy named big Anthony who is hired by Strega Nona to care for her house and garden. Strega Nona makes endless pasta with a special song to make it start and stop and one day Big Anthony discovers this trick which lands him in a pasta problem. By the end of the story Big Anthony learns about what honesty is. #ucflae3414f19

KristenScala This story would be great in a RA, IR or DR setting. I would use UDL strategy 1.3 and offer alternatives for visuals by making pasta for students to see and touch. I would use EL strategy 45 to use a vent diagram to compare and contrast Big Anthony and Strega Nona.

This TL book has won the Caldecott award for the amazing illustrations. This book is about Strega Nona who is the town witch that helps the community with spells, remedies, and food. In this story she hires the help of Big Anthony who loses Strega Nona‘s trust one day. This could be a RA book and the resource below can incorporate a class discussion about trust, punishment and authority. #ucflae3414su19

Estradan https://www.teachingchildrenphilosophy.org/BookModule/StregaNona helps align with UDL 9.3 because it will help students self-assess themselves when it comes to being trustworthy. It also aligns with ESOL 10 because students can talk about trust, punishment and authority in small groups before sharing with the class as a whole. 4y

He doesn‘t understand how it works and ends up covering the

TBT! This was my absolute favorite book as a child--a loving and patient teacher with a magic pasta pot?! Sign me up!
