Fever, 1793 | Laurie Halse Anderson

Pickpick

Fever 1793 is a historical fiction book by Laurie Anderson. Andersonhttps://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/fever-1793-discussion-guide/%22%20%5Co%20%22Andersonhttps://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/fever-1793-discussion-guide/ has LC questions that can be asked while reading this book. I enjoyed this book because it easily garbs the attention of the reader.

Alexush I also liked that the problem that is the main focus of the book is quickly revealed. For this book the UDL Id use is 7.2 which is to relevance value and authenticity. The ESOL strategy I‘d use is #48. I‘d allow the students to journal, so they can write it in their own words and go back to look over what they‘ve written. This is for reading levels 2 and up but the interest level is 5th – 8th grade.  1mo

DrSpalding This is an excellent example of historical fiction. Both sites would be helpful with using this book in the middle grades. Incorporating writing while reading is considered best practice! 1w

Finished this up this morning. I enjoyed all the short stories, most of them were kind of sad though. The last one The Gift, wow I did not see that one coming. So good! #48 #2019

The One and Only Ivan | Katherine Applegate

This MF novel written by Katherine Applegate and Illustrated by Patricia Castelao is an emotional read that has won the Newbery Award! I think it would be a great RA in the classroom. Ivan is a gorilla and he lives in a domain with some of his friends close by, Stella and Bob. They soon get a new friend named Ruby and she is just a baby, so Ivan feels the need to protect her and get her out. Find out what happens after Ivan gets some finger paint!

Addison_Reads Such a great book. I read this with my niece a couple summers ago and we both were emotional and talking about it for weeks after. 5mo
Macker11 Students would be able to relate to this book because they have all seen a circus, or at least know what it is. This can build a strong community in the classroom when students are faced with the truth of how the animals are treated in the book. After each RA the students can write in their journal to reflect ESOL #48 and a teacher can monitor comprehension there UDL #6.4 https://www.rif.org/literacy-central/book/one-and-only-ivan #UCFLAE3414SU19 5mo
Macker11 It really is a good conversation starter! Gets you really thinking @Addison_Reads 5mo

DeannaP I love the picture! Your puppy is so cute!! I also love your idea of having a journal that the students can right and reflect in! It‘s a great way to test comprehension without giving a test! 5mo
Eggs Welcome to Litsy 👏🏻📚 5mo
DrSpalding Sweet puppy picture. You have used an excellent resource. I like the idea of reading aloud and having the students journal their responses. 5mo

Book #48: His Dark Materials has quickly become one of my favorite stories of all time. The series is absolutely enthralling, not letting me put it down for a moment. And it is one of the few series I have returned to time and time again. The story can be considered a cross between The Chronicles of Narnia and The Lord of the Rings, where the world...

Book #48 of my year and I‘m going to finish up this duology and see how it fares for Zebby. I love him so much, he‘s not a “good” guy but I mean he tries and that‘s good enough for me lol

Caffeinated_Reader Pg 43 can life please STOP getting in the way of my reading time? Zebby needs me 😆🤓 7mo
Caffeinated_Reader 😭😭😭 I loved this duology. Zebulon Finch was the type of character that you start off liking because of his brutal honesty and refusal of anything normal. He quickly becomes a hero in his own right and following him throughout his death is heartbreakingly beautiful and eye opening. The ending is epic and those words will mean so much to me from here on out. I will recommend these books to everyone. 7mo

Eric Carle's "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" is a popular and classic traditional literature (TL) picture book that captivates its readers. Teachers could read "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" during a storytelling session in their classroom. Carle's famous picture book is sold every 30 seconds and is on the New York Times Bestsellers list. For those who may not know or do not remember, "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" is about a cute caterpillar with an

caldwellalex95 incredible appetite. The caterpillar eats its way through a variety of food before becoming a butterfly. Because Carle's book is so popular, there are a plethora of lesson plans that revolve around his story. I discovered a great option for a storytelling lesson plan on the "School Time Snippets" website, which is a story sequencing activity! Children will enjoy this activity because it is hands-on, and what child does not enjoy working with 8mo
caldwellalex95 clothespins?! ESOL strategy #48 and UDL's sustaining effort and persistence strategy (8.2) can pertain to this activity. "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" is a beautifully written and illustrated book. All children should be presented the opportunity to have this book read to them. Carle's illustrations are stunning and they deserve all of the praise it receives! #LAE3414SP19 8mo

"Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?", written by Bill Martin Jr./illustrated by Eric Carle, is a well-loved fictional (F) children's book with illustrations guaranteed to captivate any child. "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?" is a wonderful option for choral reading (CR) in an elementary classroom! "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?" features a brown bear, a red bird, a yellow duck, a blue horse, a green frog, a purple cat,

caldwellalex95 a white dog, a black sheep, a goldfish, a teacher or a mother, and students or children. Because of the simple nature of this picture book, it is a perfect candidate for a choral reading activity. The "Hubbard's Cupboard" website provides an in-depth plan for teachers to follow for this cute story, including a choral reading portion. ESOL strategy #48 and UDL's comprehension strategy (3.3) are appropriate for this entire lesson plan provided by 8mo
caldwellalex95 "Hubbard's Cupboard." "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?" is a must-read for all students! This book is straightforward and effortless, but Eric Carle's illustrations add life to the text. I cannot pass this book on a shelf without picking it up and reading it! #LAE3414SP19 www.hubbardscupboard.org/brown-bear-brown-bear 8mo
DrSpalding Choral reading is just right for this book. This resource is widely used as well. Well done Alex. 8mo

A 1988 #horror novel with a totally 80‘s premise- entertainment journalist marries a rock star after a whirlwind courtship and is whisked off to a mysterious lake lodge for the summer. I appreciated the uniqueness. #48 on Paste magazine‘s list of the 50 best horror novels of all time.
