#bbrc #er Published in the last 5 years.

Maya's favorite early readers were Fancy Nancy, Biscuit, and Pete the Cat. I picked the latter for this prompt, because I've always cracked up at Pete the Cat. Here you have Pete embarking on a quest to see a seahorse, yet not noticing the one right beside him until the very end. It would be a great accompaniment to an ocean unit, lots of sea life make an appearance. Super cute!

Hello Lighthouse | Sophie Blackall

Bittersweet story about the life of a lighthouse keeper. Rich and beautiful illustrations to accompany a story about a lifestyle that is no more. I especially loved the last two pages that provided more details about lighthouses. It makes me want to look into more books about them!

Snail and the Whale | Julia Donaldson

(Letter S) This is a favorite in our house. A snail with “an itchy foot” doesn‘t listen to the other snails and instead seeks out adventure, tagging along with a humpback whale. When something bad happens, the tiny snail proves size doesn‘t have anything to do with being a hero. There are colorful pictures of diverse areas on Earth from tropical islands to icebergs. It‘s a great vocabulary builder for younger children. ❤️#BBRC #A2Z @LibrarianRyan

This NF story is all about the amazing and mysterious ocean. Basher and his crew take on the high seas. They encounter many different issues on the high seas that has to do with the underwater world. Basher‘s understanding of science, teaches the reader more about the world under the sea. This would be best RA or IR. This link includes great teaching resources: https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/books/basher-oceans-by-dan-green/

Bwhitley222 The UDL principle for this could be 3.3 (guide information processing and visualization). The EL principle 4 (link lesson to students‘ prior knowledge). #ucflae3414su19 1w

The Rainbow Fish | Marcus Pfister

Pickpick

I really enjoyed reading this MF about a beautiful rainbow fish that discovers happiness through sharing and being kind to others. This book has a very good message about the power of being kind and that being rude does not get one anywhere. This book is good for S because props can be incorporated while reading the book so help students be drawn to the book and be focused.

fquadri EL strategy 4 can be used to ask students questions on what they know about sharing and kindness and make connections to their personal experiences. UDL strategy 2.5 can be used for this book because the teacher can use media to facilitate the lesson.
This website offers a read aloud by the well known Hollywood actor Ernest Borgnine.

fquadri He reads the book with great expression which can capture the attention of youngsters because it feels like they are watching a movie. The read aloud has no words but it shows the audience pictures of the book, while the actor narrates the text to them.

I remember reading this book as a child. This book could be used in classrooms to benefit students to demonstrate the act and kindness of sharing. This book is a MF written and illustrated by Marcus Pfister. #ucflae3414su19. The Rainbow Fish has won the Christopher Award, the Bologna Book Fair Critici in Erba Prize, American Booksellers Association ABBY Winner, and an IRA-CBC Children's Choice.

Myiab This book is perfect for S and RA's. https://www.education.com/lesson-plan/the-rainbow-fish/ . This website supports the UDL 3.1 (activate or supply background knowledge) and EL 4 (link lesson topic to students‘ prior knowledge). Students will be able to answer comprehension questions about a story and identify feelings using prior knowledge. 1w

My kids are we 14 and 10 and have never seen Jaws. 😳 We are going to remedy that tonight!

CouronneDhiver Ha! I feel they‘ll be either terrified or laughing their heads off... maybe the second one, because the special effects are a little cheesy 1w
