Another Aussie book but it just didn‘t get me in. Very well written but not for me just now. You win some ———!

MrsMalaprop I so want to read him as I‘ve not read any of his work. Maybe this one won‘t be my entry point though 🤔. 3w

The Friendship War | Andrew Clements
post image

Okay, normally I only do new books, but this is coming out in paperback and I wanted to post it because it is likly the last Andrew Clements book we will get as he passed away Thanksgiving weekend. His books are both new and classics. My favorite is No Talking, but I know so many teachers for who Friendle is a yearly read.

My he rest in the stories he inspired children with.

Out in paperback Jan 7

jmtrivera I loved No Talking too, as well as Frindle. He will be missed. 1mo

I finished this book in a day! First time reading this author. I LOVED all the creative ideas and activities suggested in which we can implement the turquoise table in our lives and community. Loved the recipes included from time to time and all the quotes and inspirational messages. A must read!

Turtle and Tortoise Are NOT Friends is a F picture book written by Mike Reiss and illustrated by Ashley Spires. This picture book would be best as a RT in a grade 1-3 classroom. Although it hasn‘t won any awards, I still feel this book is a good one to incorporate into the classroom. #UCFLAE3414F19

katiehamlin It is about two eggs in a zoo cage exhibit that hatch, but once they find out they are different because they are a turtle and a tortoise, they decide they cannot be friends. Eventually when they are in a sticky situation, they learn to put aside their differences and come together to achieve a common goal. 3mo
katiehamlin The EL strategy I would use with this book is 2. Promoting cooperation with small groups is good for this because they can work together to create readers theatres in small groups and then share them with the class. 3mo
katiehamlin The UDL principle I would use is 1.1. “Offer ways of customizing the display of information” is good for this because it would be used as a readers theatre. Readers theatre is a way to provide the information in a different way visually and audibly. 3mo

katiehamlin The resource I would use with this book is https://www.nashvillezoo.org/our-blog/posts/turtles-vs-tortoises . This website tells the differences between turtles and tortoises and has a little quiz at the end the students can do. I like this website because it is a good way to inform the students of science information while using this fun book in the classroom. 3mo
kgarzon I love the idea of educating students of the differences between these two easily confused animals through a funny read-aloud like this :) 3mo
DrSpalding I would love to see this as a readers theater! What a cool resource using a zoo website. 1mo

Hey @LibrarianRyan I‘m so sorry! I swear I haven‘t forgotten your #basicwitchswap package. I‘ve just been struggling through a never ending cold, and all the super fun school stuff. But I have been slowly shopping and putting together a package I think will be fun. It‘s going out tomorrow or Saturday! Anyways I feel bad for leaving you hanging so wanted to give a heads up. :)

LibrarianRyan You‘re good. Take care of yourself. Colds suck. I can wait. Or skip if need be. I‘m cool 😎. It‘s more important to be well and there for your kids. 3mo
JamieLou @LibrarianRyan Thanks for being understanding! I really appreciate it. I‘m finally feeling better and definitely ready to send you a great package! 3mo
LibrarianRyan I just posted. I got you box Friday or Saturday when I was with my nephews. Josh put it up and for got to tell me. But I can‘t wait to open it. 3mo
