Malala's Magic Pencil | Malala Yousafzai

My almost third grader and I listened to this one together. We‘ve read picture books about Malala Yousafzai, but this short chapter book was a more in-depth look at this amazing young woman and her fight for girls‘ rights.

The Story of Ferdinand | Robert Lawson, Munro Leaf

Pickpick

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

Kendylleonard https://www.ducksters.com/history/world_war_ii/ww2_atomic_bomb.php The UDL I would use is 1.3 I would pull up a map and show students where the war took place. I would also use ESOL strategy #42 so students can see how and when the war was happening. (edited) 2w

Whoever You Are By: Mem Fox and Illustrated by Leslie Staub is a colorful NF picture book that takes you through a journey of diversity. It‘s a wonderful book for teaching young students that although everyone may not look the same, we are all the same on the inside! The strategy linked to this book would be UDLR 3.2. A great resource for this book is linked here 👉🏼

Pride The Story of Harvey Milk and the Rainbow Flag is a B written by Rob Sanders and illustrated by Steven Salerno. This books tells the amazing life of Harvey Milk and the work he did for the LGBTQ+ community. It tells of his work along with the I legacy he left behind. This is a great book to use during Pride Month for your students, especially in October if you live in Orlando when Orlando Pride is celebrated.

This website is a great resource for lesson plans that are focused around Pride. When reading this book, you can satisfy ESOL strategy 14 and UDL 2.1 by using simpler language. This is an amazing book to use in your classroom!

Loved this RF by Mem Fox and Leslie Staub that promotes diversity and acceptance of others no matter who they are. This book is good for PR because students can read together and share their thoughts about the book after they read. Students can talk about their similarities and differences just like shown in the book.

fquadri After conducting the read aloud, teachers can ask students to complete activities pertaining to the book. EL strategy 45 would be fit for this book because it has to do with filling out a Venn diagram that compares and contrasts something. In this case, students can compare themselves and a partner. 2w
fquadri They can compare and contrast their likes and dislikes and heritage. UDL strategy 1.1 can be used because we are using Venn diagrams to customize the display of information.
This website offers a whole lesson plan including before reading the book and after reading the book activities that can be done with students. https://witsprogram.ca/pdfs/schools/books/whoever-you-are/whoever-you-are.pdf

This is a NF book written by Mem Fox. This is a good book for RA‘s. This book could be used in the classroom to teach students even tho we may not look the same, come from the same place, or speak the same languages, we all are the same inside. The illustrations in this book, created by Leslie Staub, displays highly detailed images that illustrates what the text is describing.
