Kingdom Keepers by Ridley Pearson would be a great choice for and independent read or literature circle book. This science fiction digs into the depth of Walt Disney World where five find themselves against Disney Villains and witches. Especially with living in Central Florida, I especially would use this book as many kids could be able to relate to the attraction they‘ve been to.

BRaulerson This book could be used to tie in main idea concepts using standard https://www.cpalms.org/Public/PreviewStandard/Preview/5767.The UDL Guideline clarifying vocabulary and symbols. With this book being a science fiction, it may have more technical terms that would need to be discussed prior to, or even during the story. The ESOL Strategy would be teach technical vocabulary using key concepts. #UCFLAE3414F19 (edited) 6d
kgarzon Students would definitely be amazed to be reading a novel that takes place somewhere they know or even visited before, letting them actively visualize the story progressing. And if they haven't, then you could easily provide references like videos or a park map to provide context! 6d

The Kingdom Keepers: Disney After Dark is a SF novel written by Ridley Pearson. I would use this novel for a LC in a fifth grade classroom because there is so much in the book students can talk about and learn off of each other. This book is about five children who go to sleep and become holograms in the Disney parks and have to defend them from the Disney villains trying to take over.

katiehamlin I have nothing but amazing things to say about this book. I‘ve read the series three times through and I think every student should be exposed to it! #UCFLAE3414F19

The EL strategy I would use with this novel is 10, teach think, pair and share strategies in cooperative groups. This is good because I would use this novel as a LC, so the students are already collaborating and pairing up and working together to share their ideas with each other.

katiehamlin The UDL principle I would use for this book is 1.3, offer alternatives for visual information. I think this is good for this novel because it doesn‘t have photos or anything in it, so many students may want to have an audio recording of it they can listen to while they read along with it. 1w
katiehamlin Here is a link to a resource I would definitely use with this book in my classroom. https://wildgeeseguides.blogspot.com/2010/01/kingdom-keepers.html This link includes many great pre-reading activities, discussion questions, and projects for every book in the series that would be great to incorporate into a classroom! 1w
Camrynm I loved your author study in class and I am very interested in this series now! Your resource looks great too! 1w

I enjoyed reading about a side of Disney that I am not familiar with. I was hoping for more anecdotes from cast members and people in the know. The book was interesting, but I am vaguely disappointed.

Who Was Walt Disney? is a B chapter book on the life of the man who created Mickey Mouse. This book would be a wonderful addition to any classroom library as it pertains to a real-life individual who made something big for himself. This book would work best in LC when researching certain individuals. #UCFLAE3414F19

TristanPool Additional resources, such as memory games and word searches can be found in https://www.rif.org/literacy-central/book/who-was-walt-disney.
UDL 7.1 with EL 16 paired with Who Was Walt Disney? promotes choice when reading and a variety of resources to enhance comprehension.

I‘ve always had an affinity for Disney. This will be an excellent reread to prepare for vacation.
