This P book provides many different poems for readers to explore, by all different authors, and are nicely illustrated throughout. This book can make learning about poems FUN. This book can be used as a PR as students take turns reading each one with expression and fluency. https://www.readingandwritinghaven.com/six-simple-ways-to-make-poetry-instructio... this shows how to keep poems engaging in the classroom. #ucflae3414sp21

Adodd1 The UDL strategy best fit would be 5.3, build fluencies with graduated levels of support for practice and performance. The ESOL strategy best fit would be 4, linking the lesson to students prior knowledge about poems 1y
Vanvlieta Great review!🙌🏼 & OoOo I love the resource you provided! I‘ll be saving that link to help myself integrate poetry into the classroom in the future(: 1y

This NF children‘s book tells students all about animals that migrate from place to place, including real shots of the animals.

Christopher Columbus | David Goodnough

Mehso-so

This B about Christopher Columbus will teach students about his life and voyage to America, and what impact he made on American History. This story would benefit best through a RA, where students can be asked/discuss questions aloud with their peers and teacher. https://readingeggs.com/articles/2015/03/03/read-aloud-books/ this link shows the importance of RA‘s. #ucflae3414sp21

Adodd1 The UDL strategy best fit would be 3.2, highlighting patterns, critical features, big ideas and relationships. The ESOL strategy best fit would be 22, giving students enough time to answer each question. 1y
DrSpalding English learner strategy works nicely with your resource. Reading aloud biographies during science and social studies is a good idea. 1y

The Newbery Honor and New York Times bestseller book is a RF that would pair best in the classroom with a LC. In a LC, students will go with Roy to help save owls in a Florida community. https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/collections/17-18/teaching-with-hoot/ the link provided lesson plans that you can use to teach this book in the LC. #ucflae3414sp21

Adodd1 The UDL strategy best fit would be 6.1, guiding students to appropriate goal setting for their reading. The ESOL strategy best fit would be 16, integrating speaking, listening, reading, and writing activities for students, which is what would take place in the LC. 1y
MFlowers Just found this in my old library! I'm excited to try out the link you provided. 1y
DrSpalding Scholastic is a high-quality resource. Fourth grade teachers use his books widely because they are set in Florida and align well with social studies content according to our Florida standards. 1y

This classic book about Paddington the bear is a MF, best used through IR. While reading, students embark on a journey with Paddington which is like no other. https://www.thoughtco.com/independent-reading-activities-to-increase-literacy-41... this link gives insight on how you can be sure students are comprehending while reading independently. #ucflae3414sp21

Adodd1 The UDL strategy best fit would be 8.2, vary demand and resources to optimize challenge. This book can be given to rising readers to challenge them and provide with activities throughout. The ESOL strategy best fit would be 13, using preview/review activities to check for students comprehension. 1y
MFlowers Yes, IR activities! It's hard to come up with those sometimes. Thanks! 1y
DrSpalding You have some classic/older books in your posts. This character has seen a resurgence due to the movie that came out a few years ago. 1y

The National Geographic Society book by Cheryl Harness is a B on Abe Lincoln in his early life, and can be used in class as a CR. Students will get an inside look on what his life was like from early ages to 28. A choral read would be best when discussing his life, asking students questions throughout. https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/introducing-bi... #ucflae3414sp21

Adodd1 The link talks about introducing biographies to your class. The UDL strategy best fit would be 3.1, activate or supply background knowledge. The ESOL strategy best fit would be 20, to list most important words and phrases. 1y
DrSpalding Your universal design and English learner strategies work nicely however English learner strategy 28 is best as it actually promotes providing biographies to elementary students. 1y

George Washington‘s Breakfast is a HF book, which could be used during a PR. The book shows what happens when a little boy, who‘s name is after George Washington, wants to find out everything about him.... even what he ate for breakfast! https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/articles/teaching-content/why-and-how-i-teac... this link provides an article showing why it‘s important to teach with HF books. #ucflae3414sp21

Adodd1 The UDL strategy best fit would be 9.3, since during a PR they need to be able to assess each other‘s understanding of the book. The ESOL strategy best fit would be 9, to show students how to use note-taking strategies so they can share later in class. 1y
DrSpalding Scholastic is a high-quality resource and partner reading could work nicely. Clearly this is another book that could be used in your social studies content area. 1y

Frog and Toad Together | Arnold Lobel

This MF, Newbery Honor award-winning book is a fantastic read for primary grades for a RA. The book teaches students about friendship while also introducing different emotions to students. Through this they can see the emotions and how Frog and Toad take care of each other. This link opens to a lesson plan for a RA for students. https://www.teachervision.com/lesson/questioning-frog-and-toad-together #ucflae3414sp21

Adodd1 The UDL strategy that could be applied would be 8.3, the students can work together during the read aloud to answer comprehension questions. The EL strategy best fit would be 14, meaning I would read at a slower pace to help students comprehend the book better. 1y
Karissacurrier I absolutely love frog and toad! The UDL principle you chose would work great with a read aloud. 1y
Ericaj I love Frog and Toad Series. I read one of the books the other day to 1st graders, and the students loved it. I plan to teach younger students. I will keep the website saved for the future. Thank you. 1y
DrSpalding This is a sweet series of books that are appropriate for primary age students. They are transitional chapter books that can be read aloud or independently. 1y

Football Hero by Tim Green is a RF book that would benefit students best when used in an LC. The action, suspense, and drama throughout the book keeps you on the edge of your seat while you follow Ty as he goes on his crazy adventure! This novel would be great for upper elementary students. https://b0f646cfbd7462424f7a-f9758a43fb7c33cc8adda0fd36101899.ssl.cf2.rackcdn.co... #ucflae3414sp21

Adodd1 The resource provided gives insight on the author and his other books. The UDL principal 6.1 can help students create goals while reading in their LC. The EL strategy best fit would be 2, providing cooperation through small groups. They could be with those who speak their native language as well to help with comprehension 1y
DrSpalding Many students love sports and providing books that relate to topics children enjoy is a wise move for any teacher. This could be a literature circle option or an independent reading option that you could simply provide in your classroom library. I would reserve literature circle options for award-winning titles. 1y

This RF Sunshine State Young Reader selection is a great way to bring some diversity to older elementary grades. This book gives great insight to older students about the drama and their future in school! I found this book to be a very fun read, but would benefit students best through an IR. https://www.teachingbooks.net/clp.cgi?master_id=45141&lf_id=10 This link allows teacher to talk about diversity with students after reading. #ucflae3414sp21

Adodd1 The UDL principal 7.1 would be great for this IR since it is a boom students can choose to read on their own. The EL strategy best fit would be 6, to monitor students comprehension. This could be done by asking the student questions after they finish each chapter. 1y
DrSpalding I added this to my stack. I agree this would be a wonderful independent read to add to your classroom library. 1y

This positive and upbeat RF book is just what we ALL need to be reading these days. Incorporating this happiness of a book into your classroom will make your room smile as a whole. I absolutely adored this book. Incorporating this as a CR would be a great way to get students engaged and process the message of the story to them. https://www.edutopia.org/article/6-elementary-reading-strategies-really-work #ucflae3414sp21

Adodd1 The link provided shows how CR can help readers. The UDL strategy that would benefit students would be 8.3 since students will work as a whole to read and complete the book. The best strategies for EL students would be 2 and 3. These both promote positivity and cooperation so the students can gain something from the CR activity. However, allowing them to just listen to the story and asking them leveled questions is beneficial to them if they 2y

I think everyone may know the MF book, and the series of Little Critter! Little Critter stories are great to introduce kids to the different parts of growing up, like this one is all about going to the dentist! This book is great for younger readers, and would be beneficial to them by doing a PR! Students can practice reading together while also learn about real-life things. https://www.readingrockets.org/strategies/partner_reading #ucflae3414sp21

Adodd1 The link provided shows some great strategies on how to utilize partner reading. The UDL strategy best fit would be 5.3, which involves building fluency with support (partner reader) for practice and performance. The EL strategy best fit would be 8. It is important to first model to the student how partner reading works and what fluent reading sounds like so they can make connections during this activity. 2y

This classic MF and New York Times Bestseller is one that would be great for a SR! This starter book into the series is one that has been proven to be loved by everyone, as it shows cause and effect to students if you were to start by giving a mouse a cookie! http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/integrating-langu... this lesson plan is a great outline of how to run a SR. #ucflae3414sp21

Adodd1 The UDL strategies that would be best for this book and SR would be 8.3, as students would work together to meet objectives of the lesson, and 2.5 as this could be a book where students not only see the teachers large book but could also have their own to follow along. The EL strategies best fit would be 14 and 20 to help them be guided through the book with other students. 2y

This SF and New York Times Bestseller book by Suzanne Collins is an absolute page-turner! The book is so captivating and action-packed, it was quite difficult to put down. Having students do an IR for this book would be best, due to the fact this book may not interest everyone with heavier topics. https://www.rif.org/literacy-central/book/hunger-games #ucflae3414sp21

Adodd1 The link provided give some great resources for teachers to use to introduce the book and author, as well as activities for when students are finished reading to check for comprehension.

Wonder is a RF and New York Times bestseller which is definitely worth its title there, and the many other awards it has won across the world. The story about an ordinary boy under special circumstances teaches kids that it is okay to be different! This is a must have in the classroom library, and would be great for either IR or LC. https://languageartsclassroom.com/2019/01/independent-reading-and-class-novels.h... #ucflae3414sp21

Adodd1 The link provided shows how to engage older readers in novels for an IR by personalizing their assignments to engage their interests. The UDL strategies that would be best would be 4.1 and 4.2 which provides student resources to help them independently complete their reading and dig deeper using background knowledge. EL strategy 30 would help students independently read and follow the story as well. 2y

Sharon M. Draper‘s New York Times best seller book, Out of my Mind, is truly unbelievable. The RF story of Melody is one of my most favorites since I was in elementary school. Out of my Mind is about a girl who gets the technology to finally be able to say what she has been thinking this whole time! This book would be great for LC, and can engage students to think in ways they haven‘t before. #ucflae3414sp21

Adodd1 https://onlemonlane.com/teaching/how-to-set-up-literature-circles-in-the-upper-g... this link is very helpful on how to set up your literature circles, as well as guide the students during. The UDL best fit for this would be 6.2 since this would give students guidance, but also the responsibility to plan for their assignment and reading. The EL support that would be best would be 6 and 29, allowing them to be independent with this. 2y

Come Fly With Me is a great MF book that is all about friendship!

This story would be a great IR to help student build comprehension independently. https://www.literacyideas.com/reading-activities-for-any-book The text-to-self activity listed would go with this book! #ucflae3414sp21

Adodd1 The UDL principals that would fit best would be 9.2 and 9.3, with the activity listed above student will be able to apply their comprehension of the story to personal experience. The EL strategy that would benefit students in this story would be 9. Students would be able to help themselves comprehend the story with note taking/timeline strategies. 2y

A TL classic, Caps for Sale! This story is about a peddler who tries to sell his caps, but gets into some monkey business along the way. This classic tale would be a great addition to any classroom library, and can be effective by using this book for a RA! In a RA, students can be encouraged to participate by having them be able to tell you the parts of the story, or what they think may happen next. #ucflae3414sp21

Adodd1 http://www.hubbardscupboard.org/caps-for-sale The UDL that would work best for this book would be 9.3 because students will be able to recognize what happened in the story and retell after reading more than once. The EL strategy best fit for this book would be 13 and 15, demonstrated by retelling the story. (edited) 2y

Jasper Rabbit can‘t seem to get enough of the carrots in Crackenhopper field, until one day he notices something creepy! The carrots were following him! This is a great book for a RA, where teachers can set objectives like making predictions, or being able to tell the parts of the story. #ucflae3414sp21

Adodd1 In addition, this website gives great examples of how to use this book in a RA while practicing making predictions with students! https://deannajump.com/creepy-carrots-read-aloud-lessons/ The UDL strategy that can be used would be 3.1 and 3.2 which both provide options for comprehension. The EL strategies that would apply best would be 44 and 14, which would be best during the RA. 2y
DrSpalding All 10 required posts are noted! You made wonderful book selections! Many award winners included along with high quality resources. Make sure that you include the verbiage that goes along with the English learner strategy and UDL principle. Remember you only need to have one of each that way you have room to include the verbiage and how they align to your resource/strategy. 2y
