I wanted to like this more than I did. It felt like it was trying too hard to be a high-concept picture book, and while some of the illustrations were gorgeous, others freaked me out.

At the Crossroads | Rachel Isadora

Pickpick

At The Crossroads, by Rachel Isadora, is a sweet RF story to be read in class. It is about a South African village waiting for their fathers to come home from the mines. There is a part where the children are making music, so I would use ESOL strategy 17, using audio and body language for support, and let the students also make music. I would use this website that shows us how to make instruments
in the classroom.

jmartucci https://feltmagnet.com/crafts/Music-Instruments-for-Kids-to-Make. UDL 3.1, activate background knowledge, would be implemented by asking students if they remember a time when they were waiting for a parent or guardian to come home from somewhere. I would use RT to get the students involved and use their homemade instruments. #ucflae3414su19 1mo
DrSpalding I love the idea of having students make their own instruments! This author has a current book titled Islandborn that is on my to be purchased list! What a wonderful way to incorporate the arts while using quality literature. 2w

This book gave me nightmares. Might be because it goes into your deepest fears of losing a child.

Clementina's Cactus | Ezra Jack Keats

#WanderingJune Day 21: #AFlowerInTheDesert is found in this gorgeous wordless book that shows a child‘s fascination with a cactus in the desert, and a father‘s fascination with his strong-willed daughter. It warms the heart knowing how the rain, the little girl‘s self-imposed-exile, and the father‘s patience were rewarded with a little surprise from the skies. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-12K

Litsy family. I need your help. Can everyone tag me in something that bring you joy or makes you laugh? I lost my dad last night and it would really help me.

This is my favorite photo of my dad and I. It was taken a couple months after my nephew was born in 2010.

Visiting Day | Jacqueline Woodson

“And in the early evening, if it‘s a little chilly outside, we can sit out back bundled up in blankets and make each other laugh as we make big plans for when Daddy comes home again.”

Genre: Historical Fiction
This is a great book to show children that not everybody‘s lives are the same. Some people have to go through different hardships. This is also a good book to show that no matter what is happening, your family is still your family and you should always love them no matter what.
