The Adventures of Beekle is a book written and illustrated by Dan Santat. This is a colorful, MF book that comes alive with detailed illustrations and imagination. It‘s about an unimaginary friend who is desperate to be a child‘s imaginary friend. He goes on a journey to meet the perfect friend. This book would be a great storytelling opportunity because you can create all of the characters and fun settings that Beekle encounters.

MeaganM I love this website! It gives a list of activity suggestions to accompany the book. It also gives plenty of discussion questions to follow the storytelling. The storytelling, discussion, and activity would be UDL 7.2 because you are making it relevant to each student. EL strategy #22 could be utilized if you gave appropriate think time for students to formulate responses. #ucflae3414su19 (edited) 3d
DMoux Such a great link! Love the idea of the printable name tags and the other fun activities. Looks like it would be such a fun book to share with the class and can provoke lots of critical thinking through the discussion questions! 3d

Actual Size by Steve Jenkins is a NF that has won the Booklist Editor‘s Choice Children‘s Book award. This fun and engaging book that teaches students many facts about all types animals big and small would be great for a RA. I found a link that provides us with ways to implement this story in every subject area. I thought it was a great resource to bring this book into each lesson. #UCFLAE3414SU19

I would satisfy the UDL 3.1 by activating students background knowledge while asking questions regarding their previous experiences with these animals. I would use ESOL strategy #22 by allowing students to stop and think about the questions I ask them throughout the story, and giving them enough time to come up with their own answers.

DawnS I love that you could use this book for different subjects too! And I love your alignments with your UDL and ESOL strategies. It is so important to allow our students to have their own voices. 2w

This is the 2nd book in a series that I read the 3rd of a little while ago. Got them in a big box of books and didn‘t realize they went together. Oops! It was okay. Not my favorite and not as good as the 3rd, but still fairly entertaining. Book #22 of the year!

Book #22: A new year meant that I was off to the races to try and get as many books read as I could. Often this means reading the most accessible (meaning books I already have) and shortest books I can find on the list. In this instance it meant catching up on the Shakespearean plays on the lists because there is a ton of them. Personally, I am not...

Little Brown | Marla Frazee

#LAE3414sp19 “Little Brown” by Marla Frazee is a fiction, open-ended story about a grumpy little dog that no one will play with. This book also won the Charoletee Zolotow award. “Little Brown” is an interesting book because although it tells the story of a grumpy dog stealing other dogs toys because no one will play with him, the book comes to a halt with no clear ending. This book would be very good to use in the classroom when the

Kcallihan teacher wants the students to learn how to make predictions and back up their opinions with reasoning. This website provides a predictions chart where it has the students‘ predictions on one side and the “why I think this” on the other: https://thisreadingmama.com/activities-for-making-predictions/. 3mo
Kcallihan The UDL strategy I would use for this would be 7.1 “optimize individual choice” because this book truly allows for the reader to come up with their own ending all by themselves. The ESOL strategy I would use would be #22, “Give enough wait time for second language learners to respond to questions.” I would use this one because although some students might make predictions quickly, it will take ESOL students longer to catch up with this process. 3mo
Kcallihan For this book I think that independent reading (IR) would be beneficial and then each student can come up with their own prediction about what they think will happen. 3mo

I guess I was comparing it to The Fault in our Stars. And Everything, Everything and it just didn‘t live up to those for me. It was a cute story and I did learn about cystic fibrosis reading it. I read it for the ATY challenge prompt #22 - a book with a number in the title. #ATY2019 #aroundtheyearin52books
