Three Little Cajun Pigs by Mike Artell is a spin off of the original tale of Three Little Pigs. This story uses a southern-creole spin to the story. The funniest part of all? The big bad wolf is a, GATOR! Students will enjoy reading this classic tale while learning about other cultures. I would use this in the classroom as a S. The resource I found was a comparison of the actual tale of the Three Little Pigs to this version. #UCFLAE3414SU19

Kendylleonard The UDL I would use is 9.1. This works by widening students understanding and beliefs of certain things. I would also use ESOL strategy #30 by comparing each tale. This will help them understand the similarities and differences between stories. 1w

Neon Prey | John Sandford

The thing I love most about Sandford is he‘s funny. Bob and Rae are really growing on me.

TrishB I have one of his on my kindle, but not read any yet. 2w
DGRachel @TrishB I picked up the first Prey novel in mass market paperback in 1998 and I‘ve been hooked ever since. There was one book in the series I hated and one or two more that were just okay, but I think they‘re fun, fast-paced reads with great characters. 2w
TrishB I‘m trying to catch up with other series before starting new ones! But good to know 😁 2w

DGRachel @TrishB I totally understand that! If I hadn‘t been reading his books for decades, I probably wouldn‘t start now. I think Neon Prey is #30 in this series and there‘s at least 10 in the Virgil Flowers soon-off series. 😱 2w
CindyMyLifeIsLit I‘ve been reading the Prey series since its inception and pick up any John Sandford book and buy it. I don‘t bother to read the jacket summary—there‘s no need. All I need to know is that John Sandford wrote it! 2w
DGRachel @CindyMyLifeIsLit The only time that bit me in the backside was the book he co-wrote with Ctein. I hated that one, but I auto-buy the Prey and Flowers books and usually read them within a week of their release dates. I‘m actually late getting to this one. 2w

BlameJennyJane Me too! I saw a post the other day and snagged it from the library. 3w
MaceyT15 @BlameJennyJane I picked this up from my library too. I need to read all his books before I pick his newest as my Book Of The Month for July. I've heard his books are amazing! 3w
BlameJennyJane @MaceyT15 me too! And this is the first one I‘m reading. Not sure why it took me so long. Lol 🤣 3w
MaceyT15 @BlameJennyJane same here! I suppose because my TBR just keeps growing, it's hard to keep up. At least we are reading it now!!! 3w

I've always been interested in the Borden case and have had this on my tbr for a while, so I'm glad the generator chose #30.

I'm a UK user, so didn't know much about the case and the lead-up to the murders. This retelling was interesting to me, I didn't know that the Bordens were rich and kept a maid or about the uncle.

It was a good starting point for me and would definitely read more about this case.

PirateJenny I'm in the middle of this. One thing that kind of annoys me is that only Mrs. Borden ever called the maid Bridget. Everyone else called her Maggie, the name of the previous maid. Also just a little note on the class thing in town: they were well-off but not exactly rich. There were other Bordens in Fall River who were rich and didn't consider Andrew and his family good enough to be real Bordens. 1mo
jenniferw88 @PirateJenny thanls for the insight. 1mo
PirateJenny @jenniferw88 I've been fascinated by the case since I was a kid. I accidentally got married on the anniversary of the murders! My husband refuses to go to the Borden B&B for our anniversary though. 😂 1mo

Great Expectations | Charles Dickens

Book #30: Great Expectations was one of Dickens' last novels, and by far one of his best. The novel follows Pip, a street orphan, as he is saved by a convict and eventually grows up to find love. While reading through the story it can be a bit slow at times but overall the story is well written and easy to follow. This book, along with most...

This book wasn‘t as good as I thought it‘d be. I thought there were too many characters and it skipped around a lot. The main characters I liked though. I ended up rating it three stars. It was a good book and nice to read something different. It just won‘t end up being one of my favorites. Read it for prompt #30 a book featuring an elderly character. #ATY2019 #aroundtheyearin52books

Kate DiCamillo's realistic fiction (RF) novel "Because of Winn-Dixie" is a relatable story that has the ability to tug at everyone's heartstrings! I have used this story while completing an author's study (AS), which I will link below.
"Because of Winn-Dixie" is a story about a young girl named Opal who moves to Florida with her father, the preacher. Opal eventually attaches herself to a dog she found at a Winn-Dixie grocery store, ultimately

caldwellalex95 bringing the dog home and naming it Winn-Dixie. Throughout the novel, Opal and Winn-Dixie meet the citizens of Naomi, Florida; these experiences gradually cause Opal to gain a new, fresh outlook on life and help her truly understand what it means to be grateful and to let go. I created an author's study on Kate DiCamillo and included a link to a "Because of Winn-Dixie" lesson plan on the last slide, titled "Kate DiCamillo Resources". This lesson 3mo
caldwellalex95 plan surrounds a scrapbooking activity, which will engage students as they incorporate their own creativity into their individual assignment. ESOL strategy #30 and UDL's expression and communication strategy (5.1) can be used for this scrapbooking lesson plan, provided by Scholastic. "Because of Winn-Dixie" is a story that anyone can relate to. This novel is the first book I have ever read from Kate DiCamillo, and it has touched my heart forever! 3mo
