The Word Collector | Peter H. Reynolds

Pickpick

This RF picture book is written and illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds. It tells a story about a little boy who collects words (surprise!) and what his journey as a world collector entails.
http://www.theclassroombookshelf.com/2018/03/the-word-collector/ this link has some fun teaching ideas if you plan on using it as a RA!
UDL Principle 2.1 clarify vocabulary and symbols
ESOL strategy 11 and 12 can be satisfied because of the different...

DezireeLara ...vocabulary used throughout the text. With ESOL students a word wall or pictures with definitions could be helpful for clarifying the vocabulary. 1w

The Word Collector | Peter H. Reynolds

The Word Collector is a RF picture book that is written and illustrated by Peter Reynolds. This book features Jerome who instead of collecting stamps or art collects words! This book follows him through his journey to expand his vocabulary and the vocabulary of others. I would use this book as a AS. Peter Reynolds has written many amazing books and can be a great example to the students. Peter even has a national holiday for one of his books!

UDL: 2.1
ESOL: 11. Place language in meaningful context
This activity has students reading more books and finding vocabulary they do not know. The students then look up the words to find out what they mean. This activity is great for learners because they get to choose what they learn.

The Book With No Pictures by B.J. Novak is a humorous RF book with NO pictures. This book forces the reader to make crazy sounds! Do not read if you do not want to make crazy sounds. I would use this book in my classroom as a RA because that is absolutely the only way to read this amazing text.

UDL: 1.2
The link I am attaching is a video of the author reading aloud his own story. This offers an alternative for auditory information.

ESOL: 14. Simplify your speech by making it slower and redundant
Vary pace in reading this text.

I know you probably won‘t be as excited, enthusiastic, thrilled, or delighted about this as I am but check out this gorgeous thesaurus I found at a garage sale over the weekend!

1. I‘ve always liked the word ‘toilet‘ for some reason. My favorite word is Spanish is ‘alfombra‘ because it is so much fun to say.

2. Segue and hors d‘oeuvres have been the recent ones.

3. Zeugma

4. Besides ‘hellow‘, incorrect grammar, mainly. ‘Deep breathes‘ and ‘nervous/excited‘ are the gems from my creative writing club.
