Macker11
Hatchet | Gary Paulsen
post image
Pickpick

This RF book is a Newbery Honor book written by Gary Paulsen! I would have this book in my classroom library for an IR. This book could spark interest in a lot of students, the trials that Brian went through. Brian started with a divorce in the family and that leads to a plane ride that makes him the pilot. He knows the only way is down, so there he goes! Find out how he survives alone in the woods and if he‘s ever found! #UCFLAE3414SU19

Macker11 Students while they are reading can use ESOL#42 and create a timeline of events that happens in the book. Along with UDL 1.1 which allows to customize the display of information, which will be done in the timeline. The entire book can be told from their timeline by the end of it. https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/hatchet-lesson... is a resource for teachers to go with the text. Also the back of the book has some! 2w
Summerm I remember reading this book in 5th grade and we watched a movie on it. To this day, it is still one of my favorite books. It is so intriguing and interesting on how he lives and what that young boy goes through. I definitely plan on having this in my classroom for a LC or RA. 7d
DrSpalding There are several books with Brian as the main character! This too is a classic. Knowing books that will intrigue young boys is important. Gary Paulsen is an excellent author to turn to for adventure stories. 21h

The Peace Tree from Hiroshima is a HF book about a tree that survived the bombing of Hiroshima. The family is learning new secrets about the bombing and how it affected them throughout the story. I would use this book as RA to discuss the historical events of what happens throughout the book. The resource I found is an easy breakdown of what took place in WWII so students will have some background information on what happened. #UCFLAE3414SU19

Kendylleonard https://www.ducksters.com/history/world_war_ii/ww2_atomic_bomb.php The UDL I would use is 1.3 I would pull up a map and show students where the war took place. I would also use ESOL strategy #42 so students can see how and when the war was happening. (edited) 2w

Book #42: The Portrait of a Lady, and Henry James in general, fall into my unmemorable category. Neither of the two stories that I have read of his on my lists I can recall at all. The Portrait of a Lady follows an American woman, Isabel Archer, who moved to Europe and ends up having to adapt from the free thinking American way of life to the more...

Who Was Dr. Seuss? | Janet Pascal
post image
Pickpick

"Who Was Dr. Seuss?" written by Janet B. Pascal/illustrated by Nancy Harrison is a cute, easy, readable biography (B) about Dr. Seuss, AKA Theodor Seuss Geisel! Generally, Pascal's books could be used during independent reading (IR). "Who Was Dr. Seuss?" is a wonderful way to inform students about who he was as a person and what inspired him to become an author. "Who Was Dr. Seuss?" is a chapter book for young students full of illustrations

caldwellalex95 throughout its entirety. Pascal includes a plethora of facts and illustrations, including a timeline of important dates crucial to Dr. Seuss's life. How did Dr. Seuss get his name? Why did he choose to write children's books? Read "Who Was Dr. Seuss?" to discover how Dr. Seuss became a powerful and prominent presence in children's literature! After reading Pascal's biography about Dr. Seuss, I discovered one of my classmate's Piktochart's about 4mo
caldwellalex95 Dr. Seuss! In this Piktochart, my classmate included a bulleted list of biographical facts about Dr. Seuss, along with lesson plans, games relating to Dr. Seuss's books, and more! Her Piktochart is a wonderful source for students to use independently after reading this book to confirm or broaden their understanding. ESOL strategy #42 and UDL's strategy perception (1.3) can apply to students reading "Who Was Dr. Seuss?" or completing any of 4mo
caldwellalex95 the activities listed on the Piktochart. Pascal's books are amazing to read, because they provide a fun alternative to reading about real people or real events that changed history! Some students might be turned off when reading biographies compared to fictional stories; however, Pascal's fun style of writing in conjunction with the illustrations make this book entertaining and pleasurable! #LAE3414SP19 4mo

wordzie Me either. 😕 4mo
Lizpixie @Cinfhen I think I was 14 when I “borrowed” my brothers copy. It‘s on my top 100 books of all time. Huge Marvin fan!🤖 #imsodepressed #42 #wheresmytowel 4mo
Christinak This is an all time favorite of mine - (I also highly recommend the audiobook read by Stephen Fry) 4mo
gradcat @Cinfhen @wordzie Me, neither, and I really think I must! I‘ve only ever heard good things about it.... 4mo

A collection of short stories, each one containing several stories. Coover's writing feels like the literary equivalent of cubism -- attempting to portray all sides of the story, all the different possibilities and outcomes. Many are retelling of fairy tales and even those that aren't are often dark, absurd, gruesome, and occasionally horrific. Often spellbinding, but also an overabundance of the male gaze. 3.5 🌟 #1001books, #reading1001
