Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats | Thomas Stearns Eliot, Axel Scheffler

Let's just ignore the sticker - I told my daughter Cats is a stage musical, she doesn't need to know about the abomination that was the movie!

I love this edition! Axel Scheffler one of my favourite illustrators and his rendering of the Jellicle Cats is not far off perfect! Quirky & cute but full of personality. My daughter is not quite sure what to make of the poems yet but there's time yet.

Surreal, charming, and bittersweet. Just what I needed this evening. If you like cats, art, and magical realism, you‘ll more than likely enjoy this enchanting tale.

ju.ca.no seriously - cats, art and magical realism? I need this in my life. 19h

Charlie Anderson | Barbara Abercrombie

This RF book that won the Irma S. Black Award is about loving and having two families and how Charlie Anderson the cat got his two families. This book would be great for an RA and resources can be found at EL #4 which links lesson to prior knowledge works great because you can access what students know about step or extended families.

hadassajl UDL 7.2, which is optimize relevance, value and authenticity works great as well. #UCFLAE3414SP20 22h
Agavitt1 I love your picture, so cute! Also I like the ESOL strategy of linking knowledge about what students would know about step families. 22h

Green Eyes | A. Birnbaum

This RF book, Green Eyes by Abe Birnbaum is a great addition to your home or school library! It won the Caldecott Honor. It would be perfect for a read aloud in the classroom for younger students(pre-k to 2nd),to talk about different concepts like the seasons or farm life. The story is all about this mischievous little kitten who escapes his box and explores the word(farm) around him. https://www.pre-kpages.com/books-about-seasons-for-preschool/

Brennap A UDL principle that is perfectly aligned with this book is 3.1 which is activating/supplying background knowledge. The illustrations will allow the children to connect and clearly understand the book. An ESOL strategy that can be used is 4. Link lesson topic to students‘ prior knowledge. So again activating that prior knowledge about the seasons or farm animals prior to reading or even during the read aloud is useful! 1d

Flubby refuses to do what his owner wants him to do, but when it thunders outside they need each other because they are scared. This is a RF book that would be great for beginning readers for PR. It won the Theodor Seuss Geisel award this year!

The UDL principal 3.2 highlighting relationships (theme of the book) as well as EL 32 use student pairs for team learning to read the book will let the students help each

KarliCrean Other read the book! #UCFLAE3414SP20 (edited) 1d
Rachelleleduc This book looks so cute! I think it is perfect for students to relate to especially if they have a cat! Thanks for sharing! 10h

Huge thanks to @BookishMe for recommending this book. It was delightful! I was expecting a whimsical story, but it ran much deeper than that. Philosophical and pretty meta.
