This F by Don Freeman was a book I loved as a child. It‘s such a cute story of a stuffed bear that‘s for sale in a store. He is missing a button and goes on a journey after close to find his button where he discovers things he has never seen before. The story ends with him finally being bought by a little girl and taken home. I would use this as a GR.

This F by Ronald Dahl is a great novel that eventually became a movie. This book is about an orphan boy finds a giant peach. He enters the peach to discover it is magical and goes on an adventure across the world. He goes on the adventure with seven magical bugs and their mission is to get James away from the care of his mean and cruel aunts. The story ends with James becoming a hero.

Erothert I would use this as an LC book and use this resource http://www.nancypolette.com/handouts/guide_jamespeach.htm to go along with it. Using an LC and this resource would cover UDL strategy 8.3 foster collaboration and community and ESOL strategy 2. promote cooperation (small groups). #UCFLAE3414SP18 1y

Grandad Mandela | Ambassador Zindzi Mandela, Zazi and Ziwelene Mandela

Pickpick

Grandad Mandela is a B picture book written by Nelson Mandela‘s family is a beautiful depiction of his life. In the book Mandela‘s great grandchildren ask their grandmother (Mandela‘s youngest daughter) 15 questions about their grandad. These questions are used as a vehicle for Mandela‘s daughter to tell beautiful stories of his life that depict his legacy.

Erothert I would use this book as a PR because you could have one student reading the questions and one student reading the answers. Scholastic has a unit of lesson plans on the life of Nelson Mandela in which this book could be incorporated at http://www.scholastic.com/browse/article.jsp?id=3758626. 1y
Erothert This lesson covers UDL strategy 6.3 facilitate managing information and resources and ESOL strategy 28. Provide biographies of significant men and women from different countries. #UCFLAE3414SP18 1y
