No, David! | David Shannon
post image

No, David! By David Shannon is a fun and comedic F story. Shannon actually wrote and illustrated this book when he was just 5 years old. He then found it as an adult and decided to make it a book. This won him the Caldecott Medal Award. His story shares his misbehaving and his mother always telling him “No, David!”. I think this would be a good book for a IR that would be included in the classroom library. #ucflae3414f19

cassandram Another option is to make it into a lesson that discusses Shannon‘s writing style. A resource for this is this lesson plan https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/write-david-sh.... 1w
cassandram With this in mind I would include UDL 6.3 facilitate managing information and resources by discussing his style of writing and studying his other stories with similar style. You could also include ESOL #24 incorporate the language of second language learners. This would be great since many of his books have a Spanish version. 1w

Whoever You Are | Mem Fox, Leslie Staub
post image

Whoever You Are is a RF book written by Mem Fox and illustrated by Leslie Straub. This picture book is perfect for showing children that even though people may look different and act different, it doesn't mean we are different. It is a great message to send children at any elementary grade level. #UCFLAE3414F19

JRone The lesson plan http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/moving-toward-acc... is perfect for the book because it allows students to move toward acceptance in their school and in their lives. This book is also perfect for an RA. 2w
JRone A UDL strategy for this book would be 3.2, highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas and relationships. This would help children connect with people who don't necessarily look like them. An EL strategy would be #24, incorporate the culture and the language of second language learners into the curriculum. This shows students where everyone is from and how it differs from where they live or why they do things differently. 2w
Erinehart I haven‘t read this book yet, but your summary makes me want to know more! 1w
sbombasi This book looks great for the classroom where students will notice their peers are different in many ways, but also similarities which is very important for ELs as you mentioned! 1w

#Booked2019 @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft

I've been forgetting to add my tags for the #Booked2019 challenge! Here's what I've got for fall so far:

#19. Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo (Evelyn is addicted to fame! 🎥)

#21. The Testaments (So freaking good!)

Question... Would the whistleblower's account work for #23/#24 possibly? 😬

#22. Wayward Son (Penelope is one of the POV characters.)

BarbaraTheBibliophage Hah. That‘s a good question. I found a book with the account in Scribd, even though I downloaded the account I read from a Congressional site. I‘d say sure ... but I‘d be more inclined to call it political intrigue than public domain. What do you think co-hosts? 3w
Cinfhen I think it works for both categories 🤷🏼‍♀️ 3w

Marvel Comics #1000 | Al Ewing, Various Writers

#NCBD and it‘s a big one today. It‘s release day for Marvel Comics #1000 and the comic store, knowing my enthusiasm for all things Skottie Young, ordered his variant cover for me. 😍 Also out today, Wonder Woman #77, Star Pig #2, Runaways #24, Ascender #5 & Skyward, Vol. 3. It‘s so much awesome, I almost don‘t know where to begin... Maybe I‘ll just have to spend the afternoon—it‘s the last week of summer vacation after all—reading all the things!

A Big Mooncake for Little Star written and Illustrated by Grace Lin is a heart warming Fantasy Fiction PB that tells about her cheeky daughter eating the mooncake into the phases of the moon. It‘s a wonderful story that cross concepts with science: perfect for a primary grade RA. I would utilize ESL strategy #24 and UDL 8.2. Here is a resource to go with the text that helps students understand the moon phases.

DrSpalding Cool image for a recent award winner! High-quality resource. Use this book during science instruction. 2mo

The Tempest | William Shakespeare
post image

Book #24: While I usually do not like the writing style of Shakespeare, and I generally don't like reading plays in general, there are some plays that I do enjoy. The Tempest is perhaps one of, if not the, weirdest of the Shakespearean plays. The premise of the play deals with a mystical island with witches and spells. And although many of...

The story itself was very compelling and would've been a pick for me, however the narration was very distracting to me. There were quite a few mispronounced words that irked me throughout the entire read, for example Reich was pronounced reish(definitely the shh be quiet noise not "ch" throaty noise we associate with Reich). Genghis Khan was pronounced was a soft g instead of a hard g which I've never heard before. #24 #2019

kricheal In my opinion the material is solid but read the book don't listen to the audio. 7mo
KathyWheeler One of our museums hosted a Genghis Khan exhibit that included video — all of the people on those videos pronounced Genghis with a soft g. I‘d never heard that before either, but apparently it‘s a thing. 7mo
kricheal @KathyWheeler Now I'm wondering if I've been saying it wrong my entire life 😂😂 7mo
KathyWheeler @kricheal According to one of those videos, there are several ways to say it. I‘m probably remembering this wrong, but the Chinese, according to the video, say it Gingus with a soft g and and i sound. 7mo
