The Hate U Give | Angela Thomas
post image
Pickpick

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas is a Coretta Scott King honor book and New York Times Bestseller. This book is about a girl named Start who watched her best friend get shot by a white police officer. Starr doesn't know what to do but knows she has to do something so she speaks out about what happen and trying to get justice for her best friend. This book is a RF and would be a good book for LC or IR. #UCFLAE3414F19

DrSpalding Make sure you use the rubric as your guide. We will review another post in class. 5mo
AleciaM The ESOL strategy I would use for this book is #29. Offer a variety of reference material at the students' instructional level for independent use. The UDL strategy I would use would be 4.2 optimize access to tools and assistive technology.

AleciaM I choose strategies because some ESOL students may not understand the lingo that is used thought the book. For UDL some students need to actually hear the audio book as they follow along. This would be part of their assistive technology. 5mo

This is “Magic Tree House: Fact Tracker - Baseball” by Mary Pope Osborne & Natalie Pope Boyce. This is the book that goes with the MTH series #29: A Big Day For Baseball. This short NF novel is perfect for students who were engaged in the fiction companion for the text and students who like sports. The book is filled with facts about baseball from the field positions, history of baseball, and famous baseball players.

gabbymartin Teaching Strategies: IR, SR. UDL: 2.5 Research baseball facts and historical photographs. EL: 4. Have EL discuss what they know about baseball or other sports. Website: https://www.kidsbookseries.com/magic-tree-house-fact-trackers/ This is a book list of the entire series for teachers who have students that are highly engaged in the series. (I was as a child) 7mo
Kendylleonard I love the idea of this book because it can make students want to read even more! If they like the Magic Tree House book that goes along with this fact tracker, they will definitely be more inclined to want to read this! 7mo

Estradan I didn‘t know the Magic Tree House had more series besides the Annie and Jack adventures! I think this would be a great addition for ELLs especially because they might relate to a sport like baseball. 7mo
fquadri I had no idea that the Magic Tree House has more series. This book seems very interesting and I feel like kids who have an interest in Baseball will love this book. Thanks for sharing! 7mo
DrSpalding The fact trackers, nonfiction complements to the fantasy titles, are excellent reads! Good choice with a helpful resource. 7mo

Thank You, Mr. Falker | Patricia Polacco
post image

Thank You, Mr. Falker is a RF book by Patricia Polacco that some students can really relate to. I would use it for an IR or PR. The book portrays a young girl that has dyslexia and can‘t figure out how to read. She deals with bullies and many other challenges in school, until she meets Mr. Falker. The resource I found gives fun printables and activities for students to use after reading the story. #UCFLAE3414SU19

Kendylleonard The resource also supplies reading guides so students can read the book at all levels. https://www.rif.org/literacy-central/book/thank-you-mr-falker . I would use UDL 1.1 to change the display of information for some students. In using the resource, I can give kids the story at their own level, so they are able to comprehend the information in the text. (edited) 7mo
Kendylleonard I would use ESOL strategy #29 to align with the same purpose, giving them the text in a way they can understand. 7mo
Mary_Dehner I absolutely live this book and all of Patricia‘s work. I like how you included alternative displays of information to go along with the book and lesson. Nice post! 7mo
Kendylleonard @Mary_Dehner I love Patricia‘s books as well! They always teach a great lesson! 7mo
DrSpalding Her books are stellar examples of stories that can teach valuable lessons in the classroom. While no one completed an author study, performing an author study and sharing her books would be a wise choice. 7mo

Book #29: "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." This is perhaps the most memorable opening to a novel in the history of literature (except perhaps Moby Dick), but it is also a novel that seems to have faded from my memory over time. I have found Dickens himself becomes a bit drab to read. He likes to pull his punches in his...

What a tough book to review. It's a very very good book, but I didn't enjoy it. It was harsh and sad and the ending was bitter bittersweet. #29 #2019

Wonder. R.J. Palacio | R J Palacio

#lae3414sp19 “Wonder” by R.J. Palacio is a modern fiction novel about a child born with a facial difference. Due to his facial difference, he could not attend a mainstream school until 5th grade- and all he wanted to do was to be treated like a normal kid. This book is interesting to me because although it starts off with August‘s (the main character) point of view, it then switches to multiple points of view throughout the book.

Kcallihan “Wonder” tells all about a community‘s struggle with accepting others and having compassion. This website provides character activities, theme lists, symbolism explanations, and more: https://www.storyboardthat.com/lesson-plans/wonder-by-r-j-palacio. When teaching this book I would most likely use 8.1, “heighten salience of goals and objectives” 11mo
Kcallihan and state that one of the main goals is that we learn how to better accept one another for how they are. For the ESOL strategy I would use #29, “offer a variety of reference materials at the students‘ level” by providing the students with that web link. That way, they can not only look at it at home to brush up on the information but they can also translate it to their native language if they‘d like. 11mo
Kcallihan I would use LC‘s (literature circles) for this book because it covers some very serious topics that would be best discussed in a smaller group setting. 11mo

Wishtree | Katherine Applegate
post image

This amazing F novel by Katherine Applegate follows the life of a tree in a suburban neighborhood. When a family who doesn't fit the racial mold moves into the community, issues arise. Red, the wishtree, puts it upon himself to shut down the negativity. This book is great for a LC because there are so many great aspects to discuss. UDL principle 3.2 and ESOL standard #29 would work well with this book.

Olsonashley19 This book is great for intermediate elementary grades and can be used to teach lessons on empathy, acceptance, and culture. Attached is an activity kit provided by the book's website. http://wishtreebook.com/static/pdf/wishtree-activity-kit-final.pdf #LAE3414SP19 12mo
