The Pigeon HAS to go to School (F) by Mo Willems is about a Pigeon who really doesn‘t want to go to school. I think children will relate to this book and find it enjoyable to read. I would have a child who likes to present give a DR to the class. The UDL guideline I would use is 2.4 (have it printed in other languages that were used in my classroom) and the ESOL strategy I would use is number 20.

maciforster I love the read aloud of the author reading the book! The topic also seems like something the students would love. 15h

This F book was written by Louis Sachar and illustrated by Adam McCauley. When I was in third grade, my teacher read this aloud to us and I loved it. I would use this book for a RA. Sideways Stories from Wayside School is about a school that is 30 stories high because it was built sideways. Each chapter you are introduced to a new character and hear their strange and funny stories. #UCFLAE3414F19

JRone UDL strategy 7.3 Minimize threats and distractions goes along with this book because if you choose to read this book aloud some of the silly stories will have students wanting to add their input. ESOL strategy #30 Encourage the use of diagrams and drawings as aids to identify concepts and seeing relationships would be beneficial for an EL to keep up with each of the 30 different characters. 1d
JRone http://www.denilya.net/reading/Wayside%20School%20Lesson%20Plans.pdf is a 14-day lesson plan the breaks down the book into bits and pieces and adds a fun activity at the end where the children get to make their own “sideway story“ about themselves. 1d

The Kissing Hand | Audrey Penn
post image
Pickpick

The Kissing Hand, written by Audrey Penn and illustrated by Ruth E. Harper and Nancy M. Leak, is a F that features Chester the raccoon and his mom. Chester is terrified to start school and being away from his mother and his home. Chester's mom tells him the secret of The Kissing Hand to comfort Chester. This New York Times Best Selling Book would be a great choice for a SR where the teacher can model fluent reading. #UCFLAE3414F19

JRone ESOL strategy #4 Link lesson topic to students‘ prior knowledge and UDL strategy 7.2 Optimize relevance, value, and authenticity would be great for this book because a student can relate to how Chester feels.

https://www.cpalms.org/Public/PreviewResourceLesson/Preview/62230 is a lesson plan that uses prior knowledge and guiding questions help the students comprehend the book. It also adds A Pocket Full of Kisses as another book to use.

So @reelsndreads posted about her tween years watching Lizzie McGuire (totally appropriate)!

So that made me think about mine. I was absolutely not allowed to watch YCDTOT, an actual program for kids.

However, MTV was new and I was totally allowed to watch GM‘s I Want Your Sex in elementary school and the original seasons of The Real World in middle school.

My mom was normally a good parent, but like most Boomers, had no idea about MTV! 😆

Megabooks @Cinfhen #likeaprayer was in for me, but some of my Catholic friends‘ parents heard about how sacrilegious it was 😱😱 so MTV was out for awhile with them! #movember Remember what a big deal the Catholic leadership made about Madonna in the 80s! 1d
Cinfhen During your in between years I was already a mom!!!! That‘s scary😱I don‘t remember my mom really restricting our TV viewing, but I know many parents did. When i think about what my kids watched 😳especially my youngest is 7 & 9 years difference in age so that kid was really watching inappropriate material 😜😂and he turned out GREAT❤️ 1d
Megabooks @Cinfhen you know what‘s even scarier, especially to me, I‘ll be 40 in March! 😱😱😱 most of my irl friends were born 78-82, so we‘re in-betweens and have these same odd touchstones. Definitely had pre-Disneyfied childhoods! We watched Pretty Woman and The Breakfast Club, and if the parents were strict, we watched things like The Sound of Music and The Wizard of Oz. No Belle, Ariel any of that. 1d

Cinfhen Oh wow!!! Big birthday @Megabooks 🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳celebration is in the works 1d
Megabooks @Cinfhen Yes, I‘m hoping to celebrate in Seattle with my closest friend whom I haven‘t seen in 5 years. Kids (hers), careers (both) and health (me) have gotten in the way of getting together in our 30s, so 🤞🏻 we see each other more with age! 1d
Cinfhen Sounds wonderful!! Something to look forward to 💜 1d

First Day Jitters | Julie Danneberg

Pickpick

Erinehart #ucflae3414f19 First Day Jitters is an adorable RF children‘s PB written by Julie Danneberg. It's about a teacher who just doesn't want to go in for her first day of school. While reading this, you don't know it's referring to a teachers until the very last page. I think this book would be great for a RA on the first day of school for a class k-3 to calm the students nerves. (edited) 1d
Erinehart https://www.weareteachers.com/first-day-jitters-activities/ this website is a great resource for different activities relating to the first day of school that would go great with this book. 1d
Erinehart A UDL strategy that I found would be great for this text is 1.1 “Offer ways of customizing the display of information .“
A ESOL that would work with this text is #14 “Simplify your speech by making it slower and redundant“. This is very important for RA, because without the students actually seeing the text it is important as the teacher that you are delivering it in a way they can understand.

Chrysanthemum | Kevin Henkes
post image
Pickpick

“Chrysanthemum” by Kevin Henkes is a sad, but fulfilling F story about a young mouse named Chrysanthemum who absolutely loves her beautiful, long name! She begins to get made fun of by a few of her classmates which results in her despising her name. This Notable Children‘s Award winning book would make a great RA to teach good morals. #UCFLAE3414F19

abbie-cadabbie The lesson plan I chose includes a fun, tactile way to teach “how unkind words can wrinkle your heart.” It includes a during and post activity for younger students to enjoy. https://heartmindonline.org/resources/lesson-plan-teaching-kindness-with-chrysan... 1d
abbie-cadabbie The UDL strategy I chose is to develop self-assessment and reflection (9.3) because this story should help students become kinder and more considerate of other‘s feelings. The ESOL strategy I chose is to encourage self-talk (positive thinking) (3) 1d

Lucille Colandro and Jared Lee have created the perfect read-aloud for the first day of school, according to the lesson plan. The TL twist of the old lady who swallows everything focuses on items that can be found in the classroom. Get ready to perform your lesson with this S(Storytelling).#ucflae3414f19

YvetteE https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/there-was-old-...
Students will put creativity to use when considering alternate versions, then making one of their own. UDL principle Optimize individual choice and autonomy (7.1) and ESOL strategy 17. Provide contextual support through audiovisuals, models, demonstrations, realia, body language and facial expressions

Erinehart One of my favorite children‘s books! 2d

Nothing like having to wait for your car‘s service check to encourage reading. The school I teach at is doing a reading challenge and so I am trying to read this “Quick Read” book as part of it. I think it is so funny that I have done all these challenges on Litsy and now there is one in real life. #readingchallenge #vhsreads
