Night Boat to Freedom | Margot Theis Raven

Pickpick

I love this HF book about escaping slavery. This story uses symbolism in a great way to tell a touching story about a boy and his grandmother. The boy helps countless people escape slavery to freedom. Then the night comes to escape himself and he won't leave without his grandmother. #ucflae3414f19
This book won the Bank Street Children's Book of the Year in 2007.

Jgolub13 For this UDL strategy I would use (3.1) Activate or supply background knowledge. For the ESOL strategy I would use #40 Have students prepare indivisible card files of subject area specific vocabulary 2mo
Jgolub13 There is a great lesson to help story map this book. It will take the students through the layers of the story so they grasp all the important information. It will helop them better understand the relationship between the boy and his grandmother. https://www.teachingbooks.net/clp.cgi?master_id=11168&lf_id=9 2mo
Jgolub13 This book is written by Margot Theis Raven and illustrated by E.B. Lewis 2mo
DrSpalding This book would work beautifully in a social studies unit regarding slavery. EB Lewis is an amazing illustrator. 1w

This biography tells the story of legendary baseball player Yogi Berra and was written by Barb Rosenstock. It all begins in Yogi‘s childhood and his difficulties in school, and goes through his lengthy baseball career. It even includes a few of his famous yogi-isms. #ucflae3414f19

Jgolub13 I love this book, and Yogi Berra so I found a lesson plan that incorporates a lot of Yogi's famous Yogi-isms. It involves making inferences about what Yogi was trying to say with his famous quotes. For example, it involves taking “when you come to a fork in the road take it“ and turn it into a work sheet about making decisions.

The Babe & I | David A. Adler

Pickpick

This is a fantastic HF book by David A. Adler. It tells the story of a young boy and his father struggling to make ends meat during the Great Depression. The young boy has to sell newspapers when he realizes that his father is unemployed. The son won‘t tell his father about the newspaper job so the father doesn‘t know that his son is helping out. The two grow and realize a lot about each other and a certain baseball player may make an appearance.

Jgolub13 This book also won the Golden Kite Award for Picture Book Text. For this UDL strategy I would use (3.1) Activate or supply background knowledge. For the ESOL strategy I would use #40 Have students prepare indivisible card files of subject area specific vocabulary. (edited) 2mo
Jgolub13 https://achievethecore.org/file/509 For my lesson plan I would use this text for a five day lesson. It would focus on background knowledge about the Great Depression, vocabulary, retelling the text, and making connections. 2mo
DrSpalding Late 2mo
DrSpalding Your love of baseball is coming through and I like that you found lesson plans that show you how easy it is to integrate social studies and language arts. 1w

Book #40: Similar to Frankenstein and Dracula, The Time Machine represents one of the world's earliest cases of science-fiction. Starting in a time when Jules Verne and other H.G. Wells classics were pushing the bounds of conventional fiction, The Time Machine shows us what Wells' view of the future might look like as his time traveler takes a...

Jazinator @lover.of.the.classics definitely go for it. It‘s very, very short and a fast paced read. My copy (hardcover) is only 60 pages. 6mo

Corduroy | Don Freeman
post image
Pickpick

"Corduroy" is a sweet, enjoyable, toy-comes-alive picture book written and illustrated by Don Freeman. It is a fictional (F) story that could be read aloud (RA) to younger students in a classroom environment. "Corduroy" is a story about a teddy bear in a department store that is almost adopted by a young girl named Lisa; however, Lisa's mom refuses to pay for the teddy bear because he is missing a button on his clothing. Determined to find the

caldwellalex95 missing button, Corduroy goes on a mission once the store closes to find a replacement button. Unfortunately, Corduroy is discovered by one of the security officers in the midst of his button-finding mission, and is placed back on his shelf. Read "Corduroy" to find out how the story ends! "Reading is Fundamental's" website provides a word search activity for students to complete once "Corduroy" is read aloud. This word search is a wonderful way 8mo
caldwellalex95 for teachers to boost their students' vocabulary. ESOL strategy #40 and UDL's language and symbols strategy (2.1) applies to this lesson plan. "Corduroy" is a story that is timeless and enjoyable for individuals of all ages. My mom would read this story to my sister and I when we were younger, so I will always have a special place in my heart! Even at the age of 24, I still enjoy reading this book if I happen to pass it on a shelf at the 8mo
caldwellalex95 bookstore! #LAE3414SP19 www.rif.org/literacy-central/material/corduroy-word-search 8mo

claireherman I love Corduroy! I read this book as a child and still have my copy now! I even put a pair of green overalls from one of my dolls onto a Teddybear. I would love to use this word search with young students in my own classroom. 8mo
C.Austin @caldwellalex95 I absolutely love this book! I used to have my mom read it to me all the time! When I saw the Corduroy stuffed animal in a store I added it to the top of my Christmas list that year! 8mo
DrSpalding Reading is fundamental is an excellent resource! You were so supportive of your friends with positive peer feedback. 8mo

"Sideways Stories from Wayside School" is a fun, fictional (F) novel written by Louis Sachar and illustrated by Adam McCauley. This story could be read aloud (RA) to the class by the teacher. Sachar's book is exciting and different! When I was in the second grade, my teacher introduced the class to this book; she read a few chapters aloud to the class every day. "Sideways Stories from Wayside School" left an impact on me because it was the first

caldwellalex95 chapter book I have ever read! This story takes place in Wayside School, which was designed to have one floor and 30 classrooms. Due to a construction error, the building is 30 floors high with one classroom per floor. Also, Wayside School does not have a 19th floor. Sachar's novel is about Mrs. Jewls's class, which is on the 30th floor. After conducting some research, I found a read aloud lesson plan teachers can follow in their own classroom! 8mo
caldwellalex95 The lesson plan has day 1 through day 14 planned out, which assists teachers with executing the plan. ESOL strategy #40 and UDL's language and symbols strategy (2.1) apply to this lesson plan about Sachar's wacky story! "Sideways Stories from Wayside School" is funky and quirky. Students are going to have a fun time while reading this chapter book because of its goofy nature and crazy storyline! #LAE3414SP19 8mo

WoodsKatie This was my favorite book growing up, it may have been my first chapter book too!!! I remember being so excited to read what would happen to the students and scary teacher! I also read the sequels too. I think this is still relevant to Students still! I‘ll totally have this in my library! Great post! 8mo
DrSpalding Many teachers read this book aloud to their students. I can tell this left an impression on you. Read aloud to your students as well! They will remember it! 8mo

Goodnight Moon | Margaret Wise Brown
post image
Pickpick

"Goodnight Moon", written by Margaret Wise Brown/illustrated by Clement Hurd, is a classic traditional literature (TL) picture book that has touched the hearts of many children! It could be used in a variety of ways in a classroom setting, including a storytelling (S) session. My mother used to read this story to my sister and I when we were younger, so "Goodnight Moon" holds a special place in my heart! "Goodnight Moon" is about a bunny who is

caldwellalex95 going to sleep. As the bunny gets tucked into bed, it says "good night" to its surroundings. The text is simple, but the illustrations are warm and calm. A website called "Inspirational Laboratories" created an activity called "The Goodnight Moon Storytelling Basket". This storytelling basket activity truly brings "Goodnight Moon" to life! ESOL strategy #40 and UDL's language and symbols strategy (2.5) pertain to this lesson plan. "Goodnight Moon" 8mo
caldwellalex95 is a classic book that all kids should be read to during their childhood! Just like how my mom read this story to my sister and I, I plan on reading this story to my students as well! #LAE3414SP19 www 8mo
