Book #6 for #cozyinthesun. This is one of my favorite historical settings - between the wars in England. The mystery in this one was just okay- I figured out the culprit early on. I love the characters though! And the covers are wonderful. (At least this cover that I got from goodreads is!)

Librarybelle It is a wonderful cover, and I‘ve got this one lined up to read this weekend! 3d

This RF written by Taryn Souders would be a great partner read so students can discuss the book together. Chloe goes to summer camp and wants to learn to bake! It all goes wrong when she meets King Author, who is he? Read and find out! Chloe is tested to the limits by many people in this novel but she always overcomes because she stays true to who she is, no matter how hard they test her. Students can use this book to collaborate. #UCFLAE3414SU19

Macker11 ESOL #6 check students comprehension throughout the book with different activities. UDL 8.3 is also in with this partner read! This resource has great discussion opportunities for students with their partner https://www.teachingbooks.net/tb.cgi?tid=54763 4d
DMoux Love how this book teaches the importance of staying true to who you are despite the obstacles that come your way. Such a significant lesson we should be instilling in our students at a young age and what better way than to do that through reading! 3d

The One and Only Ivan | Katherine Applegate
post image
Pickpick

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. 5d
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 5d
Macker11 It really is a good conversation starter! Gets you really thinking @Addison_Reads 5d

Summerm I really enjoyed this book! I read it all in one day because I couldn't put it down! RIF is also a great resource. It is able to give so much information about the book. 5d
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! 5d

The Giving Tree | Shel Silverstein
post image

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein is a MF that I would use as an AS or S. The book is about a young boy that loves to play with the trees and constantly takes the things he needs from it as he is growing up, until the tree can‘t give anymore. The resource I found is the authors website. It gives many lessons and activities for students to participate in. http://www.shelsilverstein.com/learning/ #UCFLAE3414SU19

Kendylleonard The UDL I would use is 4.1 because the website gives many different ways for students to compete the activities. I would use ESOL strategy #6 to make sure students are understand the moral of the story throughout the book. 1w

Hair Love | Vashti Harrison, Matthew A. Cherry
post image

This book is a RF and can be read IR in a classroom. I can really make a connection with this book so I can only imagine how many young girls can relate too. This book is about a young girl who gives her hair a sense of personality in essence but her father tries to help her accomplish getting a look that she might like for a special day. #ucflae3414su19

Stephanie5 With this book it has a lot of wanting to understand what‘s happening so the ESOL strategy I would use would be #6 and the UDL That I would use in the classroom is 2.4 to encourage understanding of text and facilitate comprehension. https://www.toddlerapproved.com/2015/04/make-your-own-grass-hair-salon-from.html... would be a good activity to do with students and let them express themselves through art. 2w

The Giver | Lois Lowry
post image
Pickpick

The Giver is a Newbery Winner. It is in the Science Fiction genre and is written by Lois Lowry. The Giver, while controversial, is a dystopian novel that intrigues young adult readers as it is about a young boy who is living in a world that promotes “sameness” in order for everyone to live in peace. After he inherits the memories, he starts seeing the world in a much different way. This novel would be a great way to teach Independent Reading.

MeaganM Https://www.readingrockets.org/article/independent-reading. The above website provides suggestions for fostering independent reading. While completing the IR, it is important to apply the EL strategy #6 of continually monitoring student comprehension. The UDL strategy 8.3 would require guiding information processing and visualization. This could be done with chunking certain parts of the novel. #ucflae3414su19 2w
galacticbees I've always loved this book. I read it so many times in elementary school. I think its a great book for kids to use in LCs because it sparks up some really great conversations about our morals. (edited) 2w
Dylanburgett This book is a true classic, so happy you put it on here. Great read! 5d

Inch by Inch | Leo Lionni

Pickpick

This RF written and illustrated by Leo Lionni won the Caldecott award! This book would be a great way to facilitate a math lesson about length. I think it would be good if the students had a shared reading and paired it with thinking of objects to measure in the classroom! This book contains stuff that we might not be able to measure, but we could find stuff all around and share what we find out! We could even make estimates prior to measuring

Macker11 Students could use UDL #6.3 by using this book as a source to learn to measure. ESOL #32 for working in groups! This great resource is exactly what I was picturing in my head for a lesson! http://www.cpalms.org/Public/PreviewResourceLesson/Preview/72932 #UCFLAE3414SU19 2w
MeganKlein @Macker11, I loved the way you came up with the idea to incorporate this book with a math lesson! It is so important for students to build literacy across all subject areas and this book does just that! The lesson plan you provided is awesome, and the EL and UDL strategies align perfectly with this text. 2w
