#MOvember #LaIslaBonita Set on the lush island of Mallorca its mountains and beaches, its tapas and tennis courts, promise an escape for the Post family, who each have plenty they are hiding. I LOVED this novel full of light humor and rich peoples problems. This could work for #LoL #Booked2020

This is a contemporary book, which I read all of. It is a great example of the genre because it is something that is realistic in a classroom. In the first chapter, Junie is so excited about her vacation that she can't sit still, and all she wants is for it to be show and tell so she can tell everyone about her vacation. Every child probably gets excited about something happening and can't pay attention or stay still.

I would use this book as a read aloud in my classroom at the end of the year. A lot of children can relate to this book because a lot of families go on vacation.

(Author: Peg Kehret) This RF is an attention-grabbing book, depicting a vacation to the Pacific coast gone wrong when 13yo Kyle and his little sister must survive through an earthquake and the consequences of it, including an incoming tsunami. Students can build understanding with the text through strong discussions, new vocabulary, text-connections, etc.

Sunshine State Young Reader‘s Award (FL)

kgarzon This would work exceptionally well as an LC since it is a multi-chaptered book with a lot of text-to-world connections, covering multiple natural disasters, sibling relationships, and bullying. The author even produced her own discussion questions that would engage everyone: http://www.pegkehret.com/oldwordpress/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/giantwave.doc 1mo
kgarzon UDL principle 8.3 (Foster collaboration and community) can be demonstrated through the contributing roles in the LCs and 6.3 (Facilitate managing information and resources) by accessing alternate resources to supplement the book. EL 5 (teach technical vocabulary supporting key concepts) will benefit students by providing better context for the subject of the book they are reading. 1mo

The Relatives Came | Cynthia Rylant

This F picture book is all about family coming to visit their relatives and explores all the benefits as well as struggles of family in town. This book would be a great RA around holiday time or vacation to remind students that family is for fun and support. It also won a Caldecott award.

AlyssaB An ESOL strategy would be 45 which uses Venn diagram to contrast and compare activities. You could compare and contrast relatives come in to town as good or bad thing. An UDL strategy would be 4.1 which varies the methods for response and navigation. cpalms.org/public/previewresourelesson/preview/62118 #UCFLAE3414F19 1mo
