Starting the week with some light listening 👀🤔🧐
I used to always get this one and Lambert the Sheepish Lion mixed up when I was a kid. Ferdinand is the sweetest, but I love that he is also hard core when it comes to doing what he wants. So much tougher than going along with the crowd. You sniff your flowers, Ferdinand. Get on with your badass self.
This Caldecott Honor book is a great TL book that could be used for any S or RA. It‘s about the story of an old woman who traveled far and wide to leave her family and find peace and quiet. When she finds that peace and quiet she realizes it isn‘t what it‘s cracked up to be. #UCFLAE3414SU19
The Peace Tree from Hiroshima is a HF book about a tree that survived the bombing of Hiroshima. The family is learning new secrets about the bombing and how it affected them throughout the story. I would use this book as RA to discuss the historical events of what happens throughout the book. The resource I found is an easy breakdown of what took place in WWII so students will have some background information on what happened. #UCFLAE3414SU19
