#SoaringScores Day 18: #TheSkyeBoatSong reminded me of this picturebook reviewed by Fats: “Philip C. Stead came up with a fanciful tale of a boy who would stop at nothing to find his best friend. The illustrations are beautiful. Stead mixed collage and acrylics to bring Jonathan‘s adventure to life. With its sparse text and minimal illustrations, the story is perfect for the little ones.” Her review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-aKi

One of the all time darkest and creepiest fairy tales IMO, but #Candy is certainly featured heavily! #Scarathlon #TeamStoker #ChillingPhotoChallenge @TheReadingMermaid @Clwojick

Litsy, help! I am in a serious reading slump. And I need to get out of it. So I‘m going to ask you to pick a number from 1 - 75 - we‘ll do it like real Bingo. I‘ll assign a number to my TBR, and work down your suggestions until I get over this slump.
Thanks, everyone 🙏🏻

My daughter and I decided to read this book before bedtime and wasn‘t scary at all and really cute.
If I am calculating is right 5pts for (book read about Halloween) + 5pts for (for post a picture using Halloween filter) + 1pt (book read)= 11pts

Another adorable book my son picked out from the library! It was so cute and told a kids parody of Frankenstein. Miss Devel has a house full of little monsters and they reek havoc on their town, especially little Frankenstein!

This book is absolutely precious and can be used perfectly for ESOL infusion. If there were french students in your class this would be a great opportunity to incorporate 24. incorporate the culture and language of ELL‘s in your curriculum. This F book is great for a RA or a S. This https://images.macmillan.com/folio-assets/activity-guides/9780374302818AG.pdf lesson plan features a racing activity including building a pulley system.

ebrown This lesson plan complies with UDL provide options for expression and communication (5.2). #ucflae3414f19 1d
MarkZalewski Good post, this book looks like a good one to share in class 1d
alexblanco This is awesome to incorporate ESOL students (French) in the class! I think it‘s so important to include books with multiple languages in the classroom. 1d

Alexush This looks like a super cute book! I would love to read it. 1d
Jgolub13 This book definitely looks like a good one for ESOL students. I also love word play in the title 1d
YesseniaN Not only is the picture of the book the cutest thing ever but the inclusion is amazing and you can do this with any EL that‘s in your class. 1d
Jewelwinkler First of all, it‘s great that this book could be used with French students. I feel like here in the U.S. we often don‘t recognize that we have such a variety of cultures in the classroom. I feel like this book would make any student smile but especially if that student were from France or spoke French! Also your activity looks so fun and interactive! 1d

Swarm of Bees | Lemony Snicket

This sweet book with beautiful art is about expressing your feelings healthily, and is full of great messages for children to hear. This book F would be perfect for a RA, with a follow up activity on emotions. I found https://medium.com/lbyr-parents/the-swarm-of-bees-official-storytime-kit-1654e80... this website from the publisher with activities about the book incorporated in. Helping students recognize their emotions in integral to raising

ebrown competent and aware students. Having students complete the emotions activity related to the UDL strategy of self regulation (9.2). The ESOL strategy related to this lesson would be 30. Encourage the use of drawings as aids to identify concepts and seeing relationships. I would most definitely recommend this book in the classroom! #ucflae3414f19 1d
MarkZalewski The art in this book is great, good pick! 1d
kgarzon A book about positive self regulation is always a great one for students to read in the classroom! 1d
ccipriati This seems like a very interesting book. I‘m going to read it! 1d
Lrobertson Definitely on my to read list! I love the activities from the authors site! 17h

I really likes this book(pub.2012). It is very friendly and easy for children, or any reader, to interact. I was even able to relate to this book. It brought back memories with my old teddy bear when I was younger.
Aside from the story itself, I loved the simplicity of the illustrations. I liked that the backgrounds were mostly plain white but the drawings of Bunny were simple with design.
“Small Bunny and Blue Blanket were always together.“

@LibrarianRyan I‘m working on organizing and prepping these books- but am not sure about some of the categories. Maybe I‘m thinking too hard about them? 😘 I‘m taking advantage of my week between classes! #bbrc

Rjcteacher Maybe check k-5 classroom libraries and see some of their divisions - by content and level etc. 2d
Chrissyreadit @Rjcteacher yes- I‘m planning a library trip for this weekend. 2d
LibrarianRyan You know me, ask away! 2d
Chrissyreadit @LibrarianRyan what is a lollipop book? 2d
LibrarianRyan @Chrissyreadit
1- a book with a lollipop on the cover or
2 - Brain candy. Something you like that is easy, flaky, and no real “literary value“

The Three Witches | Zora Neale Hurston, Joyce Carol Thomas

I liked this old, black folk tale adapted for children from a series of oral folktales collected by Zora Neale Hurston. The illustrations are perfectly suited to the story. I would love to track down and listen to the original collected by Hurston.
