Thank You, Omu! | Oge Mora

#UCFLAE3414F19
Thank You, Omu! by Oge Mora is a Ezra Jack Keats, Caledecott and Coretta Scott King book award winner. This RF picture book is an amazing story about a Omu and her bowl of stew. This book has an amazing message about sharing that I think would be wonderful for a RA! Discussion questions for this book can be found here: https://thestorybooklady.com/thank-you-omu/

GroeningsC UDL: 7.2, by asking questions that connect the book to the students lives.
ESOL: 22, when asking discussion questions be sure to allow enough wait time for English learners.
6d
CPettersen I also had this book. I like the UDL you linked to this book. I think this would be a wonderful story to have children connect to their own lives. (edited) 6d
TristanPool I‘m really interested in reading “Thank You, Omu!” The message is enlightening and such a great way to connect a classroom community. 6d

The Giver | Lois Lowry
post image
Pickpick

This SF 1994 Newbery Medal winner novel by Lois Lowry tells about a 12-year-old boy named Jonas who lives in a dystopian society that is colorless, ideal, free of crime and sadness. At that age, children are assigned jobs/roles, which they will train and do for the rest of their lives limiting the choice of an individual. The society is controlled by rules and tradition of the Elders.

sbombasi Jonas wanted change and made a sacrificial choice for the good of the community. This would be good IR/LC read.

This lesson plan allows students to think deeper about philosophical issues like the book, students would share their own experiences of distinctive memories growing up, have discussions about them and reflect on self-assessment.
https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/giver-lesson-p...

sbombasi The UDL principle 9.3 develop self-assessment and reflection along with EL #4 link lesson topic to students‘ prior knowledge align well with this. #ucflae3414f19 6d

In The Doghouse (F) by Leslie Kimmelman would be great for students who are in the early stages of reading and a lot of children who love dogs could relate to this book due to the happy ending. The UDL guideline I would use is 9.3 and the ESOL strategy I would use number 10. For more information on this book click here http://www.lesliekimmelman.net/my-books/catalog/16-in-the-doghouse-an-emma-and-b...

JennaMichelleCohn This looks great! I love incorporating animals into lessons because I think it teaches empathy and kindness, and engages them because kids typically love animals. 6d
Jewelwinkler Children would read this book independently 6d

KevinKantola Must read for all dog fans 🐶 6d
sbombasi I like how you said this would be great for students in early ages to relate to having a dog. It can really engage them to start reading more too either to the same kind of books or in general. 6d

Grandpa Loved | Josephine Nobisso, Maureen Hyde
post image
Pickpick

Grandpa Loved (RF) by Josephine Nobisso is a book that a lot of children can relate to if they have a Grandpa that they love in their life or if they have lost one. I would RA this book. The UDL guideline I would use is 1.1 and the ESOL strategy I would use is number 4. For More information on this book https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/books/grandpa-loved-by-josephine-nobisso/

JennaMichelleCohn I‘m interested in if this story deals with the topic of death at all? I haven‘t read it but I think it‘s important to touch on this with students and teach them coping skills. 6d
kradebaugh This is such a great book. I bought this book for my own kids and its one they love to have my dad read. 6d
JRone As someone who was very close to both of my grandpas and lost them both a couple of years ago, I have to read this book. It sounds so heartwarming and a book that I would love to buy and pass down onto my children one day. 6d

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.

Jewelwinkler To see Mo Willems read this book click here https://youtu.be/YiHqMITqyOA 6d
maciforster I love the read aloud of the author reading the book! The topic also seems like something the students would love. 6d
