Titanicat | Marty Crisp

#ucflae3414f19
Titanicat (HF) by Marty Crisp is the cutest story of a cat and a little boy. I think children would really enjoy this book because of the connection between the cat and the boy and they will also learn a little about the Titanic. I would have children read this independently. The UDL guideline I would use is 3.1 and the ESOL strategy I would use is 29 to offer more information about the Titanic.

Jewelwinkler A resource that shares more about this book is https://www.biguniverse.com/library/books/titanicat 17h
kgarzon This sounds like a great book to gently introduce the topic of the Titanic! 16h
AlyssaB Aww this book sounds so cute and awesome! 15h
Shannyblake The cover of this book grabbed my attention! I love cats. Your UDL and ESOL strategies align well :) 15h

Finding Winnie by Lindsay Mattick Illustrated by Sophie Blackall is a historical fiction book and is a Caldecott Award winner. This is a book about the REAL story of Winnie the Pooh which is a must read for any kid! I would use this book as a LC. #ucflae3414f19

This is a great resource for this book that offers lesson plans and activities.

KevinKantola The UDL strategy I would use is 3.1 Activate or supply background knowledge and the ESOL strategy I would use is EL 6 which is continually monitor students‘ comprehension. 1d

I absolutely love this biography following the bear, Winnie, who was the inspiration behind Winnie The Pooh. Winnie was found at a train station, spend some time in the military, and eventually moved to live in a zoo where she met Christopher Robin. This story is so heartwarming I had to buy my own copy. Illustrator Sophie Blackall designed such an adorable, lovable bear, and it won her the 2016 Caldecott Medal. #UCFLAE3414F19

JennaMichelleCohn UDL 9.1, “Promote expectations and beliefs that optimize motivation,” and 9.3, “Develop self-assessment and reflection,” would both be great here along with ESOL strategy 3, “Encourage self-talk (positive thinking),” because this story holds such an important message about doing what‘s right and following your gut instincts. It‘s something everyone needs to read because of this alone. This story would be good for IR. 1w
JennaMichelleCohn These two websites: https://bookpagez.com/resource/finding-winnie-lesson-plans/ and https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Browse/Search:finding%20winnie have lots of great resources that can be used to teach about the worlds most famous bear! Seriously if you haven‘t read this story GO READ IT RIGHT NOW!! 1w

The NF, Caldecott winner picture book, Finding Winnie, is an cute and true story of a bear who was rescued by a man named Harry Colebourn in 1914, taking a journey from Canada to England. Finally, she ends up in a London Zoo where she befriends a real boy named Christopher Robin. This book would work best in a RT as students immerse themselves in the life of Winnie. #UCFLAE3414F19

TristanPool https://www.rif.org/literacy-central/book/finding-winnie-true-story-world‘... is a great resource to use to promote a better understanding of Winnie‘s story. UDL 3.1 with EL 4 can be paired with Finding Winnie as students begin to uncover the true story of a real-life bear versus the cartoon Winnie the Pooh they came to love and grow up with. 3w
MarkZalewski This is really cute, loved Pooh when I was younger so I should check this out! 2w
Jewelwinkler This book seems so adorable! I bet the children in class would love this, especially if you showed them Disney's version after. 2w
JennaMichelleCohn Finding Winnie!!!!!! Such a cute little bear. 2w

Finding Winnie is an adorable NF read and Caldecott winner that shows the connection to the classic pair of Winnie the Pooh and Christopher Robin. This book would best be used in a RA with EL strategy 23 and UDL strategy 2.4. #ucflae3414f19 (CMC)
https://www.rif.org/literacy-central/material/finding-winnie-word-search This activity is a great way to reinforce the vocabulary highlighted throughout reading.

This NF is such a cute inside to another side of the Winnie the Poo! It has such valuable lessons of kindness and connection to be shared as well! I would use this in a RA! A great lesson plan provided is a sheet for kids to do an activity on literature! https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Finding-Winnie-Activities-2197000. #UCFLAE3414F19

haleyklein My UDL that would apply is 2.1 and my ESOL strategies are 1, 12, 15 & 27! 3w

Finding Winnie | Lindsay Mattick

Review: Finding Winnie by Lindsay Mattick, 2015. Caldecott Medal Book. This book is an adorable telling of the true story of the bear that inspired Winnie the Pooh.
Blurb: The book doesn't tell you right away that it's about Winnie the Pooh so it's a nice surprise at the end when you find out!
Quote: “Once the boy had found Winnie, he knew just what to call his stuffed bear. He named it Winnie-the-Pooh.“
