Maya has been re-reading the Land of Stories with me this week, which put us in the mood to play Enchanted Forest tonight! We haven‘t played this fairy tale themed game in ages, but it used to be a favorite!

BethM Wish I had that game as a kid! 1mo
4thhouseontheleft @BethM Me too! Except my memory is terrible, so I always lose. 😂😂 1mo
Rissa1 My kids love this game. 1mo

The Giving Tree | Shel Silverstein
post image
Pickpick

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein is a New York Times Outstanding Book Award Winner (1974). This is a perfect book for storytelling! Having students interact with the storytelling through pictures of the tree and boy getting older and the bond they share. Students will feel the connection between the two. A story I personally loved as a kid. #ucflae3414su19

The Giving Tree | Shel Silverstein
post image

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein is a MF that I would use as an AS or S. It won the New York Times Outstanding Book Award in 1974. The book is about a young boy that loves to play with the trees and constantly takes the things he needs from it as he is growing up, until the tree can‘t give anymore. The resource I found is the authors website. It gives many lessons and activities for students to participate in. #UCFLAE3414SU19

Kendylleonard http://www.shelsilverstein.com/learning/ The UDL I would use is 4.1 because the website gives many different ways for students to compete the activities. I would use ESOL strategy #6 to make sure students are understanding the moral of the story throughout the book. (edited) 2mo
DrSpalding His website is amazing and your principles and strategies are better explained here. 2mo

Stuck | Oliver Jeffers
post image

Oliver Jeffers writes a fantastic MF book about a little boy who gets his kite stuck up in a tree. He has to get it down but how? Starting with throwing his shoe and eventually throwing a whale to get his kite down, things begin to escalate as he desperately tries to get his kite back. This fun book is great for S with fun props that you can get at this link!

Kcompton2912 https://teachmehowptl.blogspot.com/2018/04/spring-literacy-book-companion-for.ht... The UDL principle 1.3, offer alternatives for visual information, and the EL strategy 17, provide contextual support through audio visual, models, demonstrations, realia, body language and facial expressions, can all be met with this book and storytelling. #UCFLAE3414SU19 2mo
DrSpalding 1.3 and 17 work beautifully! 2mo

Somehow I had never read this, or any of his stuff. This was a wonderful fable showing the gift of giving selflessly when you love someone. Even though it's short, it gets the point across and does it simply enough for little ones to enjoy and understand.

Buchbeeg I have all his books! My grandma used to read him to me when I was little and I never got over how cool he was. How cool to discover this book as an adult. I bet it's a completely different experience. Also this book wrecked me as a kid. Totally weepy outside hugging trees telling them I loved them. 2mo
Rissreads Brilliant book 💚 2mo

Loved it! The stories have really stayed with me. They're so slightly off reality.

StephJB1221 I‘m becoming more and more interested in Eve Bunting as I discover her work! This looks like such an amazing story to read especially when talking to students about the importance of keeping our Earth clean! 4mo

The Wish Tree | Kyo Maclear

This probably looks more like a Halloween post, but it‘s all about the tagged book. After reading the book the schoolchildren walked to the library and put their wishes on the tree. Community members are encouraged to do the same. (Frankly it‘s been so gray and rainy that a colored photo would look pretty much the same.) 😀

MelissaSue81 This book made me cry so much. 4mo
Suet624 @MelissaSue81 oh no! I‘ve never read the book! Now I‘ll have to check it out. 4mo
Reggie So, your wish would be for warmer weather? 4mo
Suet624 @Reggie Haha. Less rain, for sure. But the flowers are finally starting to open. All will be right with the world soon. 💕 4mo
