Let's Dream, Martin Luther King, Jr.! | Connie Roop, Peter Roop
post image
Pickpick

This B is an easy read for young readers. This book explains a little about Martins life before he made it into history for his famous speeches. This would be a great Chapter book to do as a RA or even use as a DR and have children reenact his speeches. As we go along we could use UDL strategy 3.2 (highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships) and EL strategy 1(teach questioning for clarification). This site has multiple..

Bshelton27 Ideas on activities that would incorporate this book and other Martin Luther King Jr books as well. https://blog.capterra.com/lesson-plan-ideas-for-martin-luther-king-jr-day/ #ucflae3414su19 8h

Zathura: A Space Adventure | Chris Van Allsburg
post image

Zathura by Chris Van Allsburg (SF) - I first learned about this Caldecott Award winner during the author study assignment! I was drawn to this story because it is the sequel to Jumanji, which is an awesome major motion picture! Zathura is about two boys who are travel on an intergalactic adventure when their house is brought through space. This book would be a perfect RA when teaching your class about space due to the amazing illustrations!

alexialovesmith http://readingtokids.org/Books/BookView.php?pag=5&bookID=00000510 This resource has great discussion topics that meet ELS13 in regard to preview and review activities and UDL2.1 by clarifying vocabulary within the text. There is a lot of things you can do with this book! I love it! #ucflae3414su19 9h

Wonder | R. J. Palacio
post image
Pickpick

Wonder is about a boy named August (Auggie) who has a face distortedly. Throughout the book we learn about the challenges he faces at school and out in public, because of it. We learn about his side of the story as well as others who are close to him. #ucflae3414su19

DeannaP https://thediscoveryapple.com/2017/10/16/10-activities-and-resources-to-go-with-... An ESOL strategy to go with this lesson is to “encourage self-talk (positive thinking) since they would be writing nice things about their classmates on their backs. 23h
DeannaP An E.D strategy to go with this is to “minimize threats and distractions” by explaining that we are only writing nice things about our classmates and we will be reading them out loud so make sure everyone writes on each other‘s backs. The teacher can also walk around and wring on the classmates to model expected behavior. 23h

365 Days of Wonder: Mr.Browne‘s Book of Precepts written by R.J. Palacio is a fiction book that has inspiring quotes for every day of the year. The quotes range from history, love, friendship, courage, and kindness. This would be a fun thing to do with the class as a bell ringer. We could start the morning by reading a quote and then writing about it or the teacher can simply ask comprehension questions about it. #ucflae3414su19

DeannaP https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Comprehension-Questions-for-365-Days... An ESOL strategy to go with the lesson is to “continually monitor students comprehension” the teacher can do that by having the students write the quote and what they think it means in a journal. 24h
DeannaP An E.D strategy to go with it is to “highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships” since they would be finding the main idea of the quote and comparing it to their background knowledge. 24h

Jack and Annie go to Australia and discover that a wildfire has occurred in the forest. While there they discover that there is a baby kangaroo and koala are trapped in the forest. Jack and Annie try to help these animals escape and along the way face many challenges. #ucflae3414su19

DeannaP https://images.randomhouse.com/promo_image/9780679890669_3213.pdf An ESOL strategy to go with the lesson is to “link lesson topic to student‘s prior knowledge” by matching different animals to where they think they live. An E.D strategy to go with it is to “offer ways of customizing the display of information”. Instead of giving the list to the students the teacher can print out the animals and have different backdrops with the different habitats 24h

#UCFLAE3414SU19 This SF book written and illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg follows two brother, Danny and Walter. The bickering duo come across an out of this world board game that tasks them with multiple riddle like missions on their way to the planet Zathura. The process brings them together in the end with funny events throughout. This would make a great RA or IR. Using http://www.houghtonmifflinbooks.com/features/zathura/educators.shtml

DawnS Using that resource for grades 3-5 students will meet UDL 4.2 optimizing access to tools and assistive technologies and EL strategy 5 teaching technical vocabulary supporting key concepts. (edited) 1d
MeganKlein Great resource! I remember watching the movie version of this book when I was a kid and I absolutely loved it! This book contains an important themes like brotherhood and friendship, and I think many children would love reading this text! 10h

Swarm of Bees | Lemony Snicket
post image
Pickpick

Swarm of Bees is a traditional literature book written by Lemony Snicket. The pictures are by Rilla Alexander and are full of bright colors and dot art. This book is about a little boy, along with a swarm of bees and his town, who all get upset but then come together to feel better. This is a fantastic book for EL students to encourage self-talk with strategy #3..

MeaganM I can see teachers exposing students to the bond of community and working together as a way to open the door for EL students to discuss their own culture and community. https://www.thepathway2success.com/how-to-teach-positive-self-talk/. #ucflae3414su19 (edited) 1d
Macker11 This looks like such a cute book! What a great lesson embedded into it as well! I love the classroom community side of it as well, cute choice ! 1d
MeaganM This website is very useful for teachers who want to incorporate self-talk and positive talk. It provides tips for helping children use positive self-talk. This book would be appropriate to use with a storytelling strategy to engage all students and for UDL 9.1 to promote expectations and beliefs that optimize motivation. This book would offer many opportunities for great discussions!

The Big Snow | Berta Hader, Elmer Hader
post image
Pickpick

The Big Snow is a traditional literature book that won the Caldecott Medal for illustrations. It was written and illustrated by Bert and Elmer Hader. It follows the journeys of many woodland animals as they began to realize that winter is approaching and start
planning accordingly. This story would pair with EL strategy #43 that requires students to underline or highlight key words or important facts in written assignments.

MeaganM http://www.adlit.org/strategies/23332/

This website offers suggestions for incorporating selective highlighting. This could be taught in tangent with a science unit for animal adaptations and utilize UDL 1.3 to offer alternatives to visual processing. A cause and effect chart would be effective. #ucflae3414su19

MeganKlein This book would be awesome for teaching students how to visualize! Many students living in Florida don‘t really know much about snow and the season of winter, and I think this book would be a great way to teach students about those things. I really like your resource and I learned some new information about selective highlighting! 10h

This Caldecott and CSK Award winning B is full of beautiful illustrations that depict the life of one of America‘s greatest composers, Duke Ellington. With rhythmic and swinging prose, Pinkney takes the reader right into these jazzy times in history to make his story truly come alive. Ellington wrote many pieces celebrating the life of African Americans which are still significant today. RA could double this story as a history lesson as well!

DMoux https://amandersoneng311.weebly.com/read-aloud.html This link will take you straight to a lovely read aloud of this book. UDL 2.5 can be used by showing the read aloud on YouTube which illustrates this book through multiple media. ESOL 17 will provide contextual support through sharing audio visuals of this book. #ucflae3414su19 1d

This Newbery Award winning RF was an accurate depiction of the struggle of a middle school girl! With health and financial issues in the family, bullies at school, and new responsibilities, Merci learns that change may be better than staying the same. Meg Medina did a wonderful job of painting the image of a Hispanic 6th grade girl; this book was a mirror for me! LC would be great to invite discussion on the deep/pressing issues in this book.

DMoux http://www.theclassroombookshelf.com/2018/10/merci-suarez-changes-gears/ This link goes into detail about many different themes to be discussed within the book which would be great to help assist LC! UDL 2.4 will promote understanding across languages, specifically with Hispanic EL‘s. ESOL 42 can be used to create timelines that sequence order of events in the book to guide LC discussion. #ucflae3414su19 1d
DawnS I think it is amazing how words can paint such a picture and allow you to see yourself in the story. I am so glad this happened for you with this story. Changes are such a difficult thing especially at a middle school age so I can see how valuable the discussions that come from this book would be. Great post! 1d
