I really loved this. For the the first quarter of the book I thought I was going to hate it because it was told from the perspective of child and then a preteen. Please give this book a chance, this is a complex family and emotional coming of age story. This needs a much higher rating on litsy. #36 #2019

Soubhiville This was a really strange but somehow satisfying little book. 1w

“Everyone in the world should get a standing ovation at least once in their life because we all overcometh the world” -August Pullman. If this quote doesn‘t sum up the entire book, I don‘t know what does. Auggie is a young brave boy who has overcome many triumphs throughout the story and he only gets stronger with time. This RF book would be great for students in a LC, and for them to be able to discuss and use ESOL#36 and ask HOT questions

Macker11 I think having the students use UDL 7.2 in their discussion can be beneficial, because they can relate to how they would feel if August was in their school. A great resource for this book would be: https://www.rif.org/sites/default/files/Support_Materials/Wonder-EG.pdf this has so many good ideas to do with your class in regards to the book. #UCFLAE3414SU19 3w
MeganKlein @Macker11, I absolutely love Wonder and I‘m so glad you chose to read it! This book has so many important themes and life lessons that both adults and children can take away. The resource you chose is awesome and the discussion questions are very thought-provoking. I, too, would teach this book in a LC. Thanks for sharing that quote from the book—I can totally visualize that moment for Auggie! 3w
DrSpalding Reading is fundamental is an excellent resource. Keep using high-quality resources as sources for your teaching.❤️📚 4h

Book #36: Continuing on my "I'm going to read some "funner" books on this list" trend, I dove into my first outright humorous book. Prior to this I was not much accustomed to "British humor", having not watched much of British comedy shows or movies before. But afterwards I became a convert. I thought this book was absolutely hilarious, and...

I read this for the around the year challenge in 52 books for prompt #36 a book featured on the NPR best books of the year. It had a good premise but wasn‘t executed all that well. You could see where society could get like this though with social@media. It did keep me turning the pages. I‘m still going to put it as a pick. #aty2019 #aroundtheyearin52books

The One and Only Ivan is an F book that was based on a true story about a gorilla and a baby elephant who lived in the mall where they put on a show for the humans. This book will make you tear up as you read! It‘s a great read overall. My favorite book at the moment! This book has won the Newbery Medal and is soon to be a movie for everyone to enjoy! Just bring tissues!!

ally11301 https://media.btsb.com/TitleLessonPlans/597.pdf This website is great because it is a teaching guide with multiple discussion questions to do in the classroom after their reading! There are also 5 activities that can be fun and helpful for the students. This book is best read as an IR. (edited) 3mo
ally11301 An ESOL strategy that aligns with the book would be #36 because this book as well as the resource I used allows students to create a higher thinking by answering higher-level questions. 3mo
ally11301 An UDL that aligns to the book would be 3.2 because it highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships throughout the story. 3mo
audrey.wilson So many people adore this book, I must read it! I like your choice of UDL, 3.2 is a great one. (edited) 3mo
DrSpalding This was discussed in class at length… Sounds like you have convinced peers to read it with your post. 3mo

"Hidden Figures", written by Margot Lee Shetterly/illustrated by Laura Freeman is an inspiring nonfiction (NF) story that could be incorporated into a read aloud (RA) activity in the classroom! This picture book is vibrant with its illustrations, which will guarantee each student's undivided attention. The story "Hidden Figures", which has been turned into a major motion picture, is a true story about four black women who assisted NASA with

caldwellalex95 launching men into space. This book takes place from 1930 through 1960; during this time, women were viewed as inferior to men. The four women in "Hidden Figures", Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Christine Darden overcame discrimination, as women and as African-Americans, while working at NASA. After doing some research on Scholastic's website, I stumbled across a fun and interesting activity for students to engage in. The 4mo
caldwellalex95 activity is called "Moon Math"! During this activity, students will feel like they are part of the action as they read about Katherine Johnson. Then, students will complete a diagram of the moon lander's flight plan and calculate angles! These assignments are hands-on and will have students engrossed in math! Once students finish these math activities, there are a series of questions for them to answer to confirm their understanding. ESOL strategy 4mo
caldwellalex95 #46 and #36, along with UDL's language and symbols strategy (2.3) integrate with the "Moon Math" activity. "Hidden Figures" is a lovely and informative story to read to students, and it could be read aloud specifically during Black History Month! Because young students, teenagers, and adults will enjoy this exhilarating picture book based on a true story, I believe this book is a must-have in every classroom! 4mo

#36 "New face. Old nightmare "
Carly Beth's Halloween mask was the scariest around. Steve remembers it perfectly. He is envious of how scary it was and wants to have a mask that's even scarier. So he buys a creepy old man mask at the same shop that Carly bought hers. But when he starts feeling old and tired and evil... something is terribly wrong here.
