This was completely terrible. #38 #2019 Has anyone else read this?

jmtrivera I haven't read this, but I usually like Ephron's writing, so that's disappointing! 5mo
Susannah I‘m so sorry that you didn‘t like it. I loved both this and I Feel Bad About My Neck. 5mo

Pickpick

“Don‘t judge a Man until you‘ve walked two moons in his moccasins” this RF by Sharon Creech has won a Newbery Medal. This book had many great life lessons and relatable content. Sal is on a road trip with Gram and Gramps, and she tells them a story about her friend Phoebe. This story talks about how Phoebe‘s mom left the family and it results In the story of what happened to Sals mom when she left the family. #UCFLAE3414SU19

Macker11 In a classroom I would have the students choose this book for a LC. The students can read at home and then discuss during class time ESOL#38. During this time they can check for understanding and discuss details of the text. They can highlight patterns, critical features and big ideas UDL 3.2. https://www.scholastic.com/content/dam/teachers/lesson-plans/migrated-files-in-b... questions for LC groups. 5mo
DrSpalding This is obviously an excellent book selection! Scholastic is a high-quality resource and yes… This would work well for a literature circle choice. (edited) 4mo

Book #38: Like Frankenstein, which I had read prior to this novel, this novel brings the horror genre back to the beginning. This is essentially the one that started it all. I assumed I was familiar with the plot, having seen snippets of takes on the character for decades. However, I don't think I've ever seen a straight out adaptation of the...

This RF/TL book is such a great read for younger students in elementary grade. It‘s about a 10 year old named India Opal who found a lost scruffy dog inside the grocery store (Winn-Dixie). She ended up keeping the dog and named him Winn-Dixie. Throughout her time with Winn-Dixie, India was able to make friends with her neighbors as well. this book is good for an IR.

This book won the Newbery Award.

Kcallihan I have actually never read this book, I‘ve only seen the movie! Your post was very concise and intriguing and made me very inclined to read it! I also really like your link you included, would definitely be very helpful! 8mo
MGrace15 I love this story! It‘s so good for being here in FL! Wonderful resource! @ally11301 8mo
Edenmonet I loved this book when I was in elementary school! My mom was a teacher so she would have me read the book before the movie and I‘m glad I read this book first. I really liked how you had a lot of different lesson plans to choose from! 8mo
Carinna.Chin Love this book!!! Very touching and sweet. 8mo
Mmw2478 I wish I could read this to my class but it makes me cry...so sweet! 8mo
ally11301 An ESOL strategy that would align to this book would be #38 because this way the student will take the book home and read a certain amount of pages/chapters on their own at home with their own pace. 8mo
ally11301 An UDL that would align would be 8.1 because this will help salience their goals and objectives by reading on their own and understanding the story. 8mo

Wonder | R. J. Palacio
post image
Pickpick

R. J. Palacio's "Wonder" is an inspirational, realistic fiction (RF) story that can be used as an option for literature circles (LC) in the classroom! "Wonder" is a New York Times Best Sellers book. If you are a reader who is looking for a feel-good story with occasional tear-shedding moments, then this book is for you! "Wonder" is another novel that was eventually turned into a major motion picture. "Wonder" is about a 10-year-old boy named

caldwellalex95 August, or Auggie Pullman, who has been home-schooled his entire life - until now. Beginning school is intimidating for anyone, but it is especially scary for Auggie because he has Treacher Collins Syndrome, a facial deformity he was born with. How does Auggie's first year in 5th grade play out? Read "Wonder" and discover the ups and downs for Auggie, his family, and friends, as it is told from different viewpoints of each character! "Wonder" is a 8mo
caldwellalex95 great candidate to be used in a literature circle; I would love to discuss with my peers my feelings about the book and the characters, what occurs per chapter, etc. Literature circles provide students with an opportunity to dig deeper into the text. Palacio's official website for "Wonder" provides activities for students to complete once they finish reading the book. ESOL strategy #38 and UDL's comprehension strategy (3.2) can be used in a 8mo
caldwellalex95 literature circle activity, or any of the activities provided on Palacio's website. "Wonder" is a beautifully written story about a young boy with a facial malformation, told by different standpoints of the characters. This novel is a tearjerker, so make sure you have some tissues nearby! Although this story is fictional, there are thousands of families that can relate to "Wonder". I believe it is important for teachers to have this story 8mo

Kcallihan You did a very good job in the introduction explaining the book and it made me very interested to hear more about it and potentially read it. You provided a very detailed analysis of the book and how it would work well within a literature circle. I also love that you included the pros to using a literature circle and how it would work if you were the student. Good job!! 8mo
DrSpalding Excellent resource and we discussed this book during our independent literature circles. This truly is a wonderful book to utilize in your classroom for a variety of reasons. 7mo

I loved the details about the war and I loved the prose. However I liked part 1 much better than part 2. After awhile I did get a little bored with the letters. I thought it could have been a little shorter like 84, Charing Cross but then a little more on the love story. All in all a great read though. I read for #38 of around the year in 52 books. A book not written in the traditional format. #aty2019 #arountheyearin52books

A Deadly Affection | Cuyler Overholt

Pickpick

This was Book #38—an ARC I picked up a couple of years ago at BEA—in my quest to read down my TBR pile by 50 books. Set in 1907 New York, it‘s the story of Dr. Genevieve Summerford, a newly minted doctor (psychiatrist to be exact). One of her patients is accused of murder. Was it Summerford‘s advice? Is the woman actually the perpetrator? A dash of mystery, an old flame, NYC in the early 1900s & you have a fun story. Good but not great.

#38 "He's no fun in the sun!"
Jordan and Nicole are brother and sister. They live in sunny Pasadena. but they're tired of the hot weather and never having a true winter with snow. so when their father gets called to Alaska to photograph a mysterious creature found up there they are happy to tag along for the ride. But when they end up getting chased by The Abominable Snowman things get a little hairy!
