This wonderful rhyming picture book 📖 is about Sam I Am's attempt to convince the narrator to try green eggs and ham. Offering the narrator different locations and dining partners to try the delicacy. A wonderful NF/RA, repetitive story of trying something new hesitantly that may look or sound different but finding the new thing to be great.

The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo is a F-LC Newberry Medal award winning book that follows a mouse on his adventures to save a princess from the rats. UDL 8.2 (vary demands and resources to optimize challenge) and EL 30 (encourage the use of diagrams and drawings as aids to identify concepts and seeing relationships) are good strategies to use. #UCFLAE3414SP21

PatriciaS I love 💕 children's adventure 📚 books they are great for read aloud lessons and activities, and for opening up children to imagination and critical thinking 🤔 through discussion sessions questions and answers small groupings and independent reading assignments. 2y

DrSpalding Excellent book choice and excellent resource. This book certainly requires the assistance of a teacher to aid comprehension. The discussion sessions with questions and answers in small groups is a wise idea while the students progress through each of the four books within the one book. 2y

is a RF-LC/AS/IR novel based on true events about a gorilla named Ivan that learned how to paint while in a mall circus. When Ivan meets Ruby, a baby elephant that was taken from her family and put in the circus, Ivan is motivated to make a change in their circumstances. A beautiful book about friendship, art and hope!
This novel won a Newbery medal. #UCFLAE3414SP21

melodyp UDL 7.2 (optimize relevance, value and authenticity) and EL 6 (continually monitor students comprehension) are great strategies to use.

Sembrando Historias, Pura Belpre: Bibliotecaria y Narradora de cuentos by Anika Aldamuy Denise and illustrated by Paola Escobar is a B-RA/PR/AS/IR picture book about the life and contributions of Pura Belpre. While there is an English version of this book, I think it is beneficial for teachers to also have Spanish versions for their ESOL students. #UCFLAE3414SP21

melodyp This book is a Pura Belpre honor book, as well as silver medalist of the Children‘s Book Committee‘s Best Spanish Language Picture Books of the Year Award.
UDL 2.4 (promote understanding across languages) and EL 24 (incorporate the culture and language of second language learners in your curriculum) are excellent strategies to use when teaching this book.
The website https://www.teachingbooks.net/tb.cgi?tid=66246#Resources has great resources.

PatriciaS This wonderful book is a great addition to any classroom library 😊 I am adding it to my list. Thank you for your review 👍 and another resource to add for ELL students too. 2y
DrSpalding Teaching books is a good resource. Your English learner strategy is spot on. Children need to learn from picture book biographies! English learner 28 works well with all biographies that we expose students to at the elementary level. 2y

The Little Engine That Could by Watty Piper is a classic TL/F-PR/RA/CR book that many of us know and love. In this book, a train,
that has very important toys and candies inside for the children on the other side of the mountain, breaks down. The toys ask different engines if they can pull them, but none can. Until then little blue engine comes along and proves that even if you‘re small, you can do big things! #UCFLAE3414SP21

melodyp UDL 9.1 (promote expectations and beliefs that optimize motivation) and EL 17 (provide contextual support though audio visuals, models, demonstrations, etc) are good strategies to use.
This website has the movie version of this book which would be so fun for the students to watch as a treat at the end of the unit! https://www.amazon.com/Little-Engine-that-Could/dp/B088K2XVJ4

PatriciaS This is a wonderful picture book 📚 great read aloud to encourage those struggling students. Great pick for classroom library 😊. Thank you for your review and resources. 2y
DrSpalding This book has a message that all students should hear… They can all do big things! This should be a read aloud that of course you could watch the movie as well, in kindergarten and first grade. 2y
