If Not for the Cat | Jack Prelutsky

Pickpick

If Not For The Cat by Jack Prelutsky is a great poetry RA that would be great for any classroom library. There are seventeen haikus in this picture book. The illustrations in this book are so amazing. I encourage you to read this book and look at the beautiful pictures in it. On these amazing and colorful pictures you will meet a mouse, a skunk, a beaver, a hummingbird, ants, bald eagles, jellyfish, and many other. This book inspires

Aimeejett students to think about animals in different ways. The UDL principle 1.1 offer ways of customizing the display of information could be met for this module. There are a lot of different ways the animals can be viewed so I think it‘s important for the students to be able to display the information in different ways. EL 1 teach questioning for clarification. I think it is very possible for students to get confused during this book, so it‘s important 5y
Aimeejett foe them to ask questions. This website http://writingfix.com/Picture_Book_Prompts/IfNotCat3.htm has more haiku riddles for students to practice. #ucflae3414f17 5y

The Beautiful Lost | Luanne Rice
post image
Pickpick

The Beautiful Lost by Luanne Rice is a RF novel. Teens and adults would love this book. I encourage you to read this book if you haven‘t. The Beautiful Lost tells a story about Maia, a girl who struggles with depression who takes off on a road trip in search of her mother. She falls in love with this boy, Billy. Billy runs away with her to help find her mother. This is a really good book to read if you have ever struggled with depression before.

Aimeejett I think hearing someone else‘s story about it can help turn yours around. The UDL principle 9.3 develop self-assessment and reflection along with EL 3 encourage self-talk (positive thinking) could be met for this novel. I think it is important to self-asses and talk to yourself about this book because it could be based on very personal feelings and beliefs. This website http://www.therapistaid.com/therapy-worksheets/depression/none will help 5y

The King Who Rained | Fred Gwynne
post image
Pickpick

The King Who Rained by Fred Gwynne is a great RD MF book for any classroom library. The King Who Rained is about a little girl who confused different meanings of words that sound alike, a little girl imagines such unusual sights as “a King Who Rained” and “the foot prince in the snow.” Her mother and father use clear homophones, but the young girl has no clue of such. The illustrations are done from her perspective, which are totally off of what

Aimeejett her parents meant but are what you would expect from a small child‘s confusion. This shows how students really put into perspective some things you may have said or done. Also, this would be a great book if your class was learning about homophone. The UDL principle 3.1 activate prior background knowledge along with EL 4 link lesson topic to students‘ prior knowledge. For these homophones, I think it‘s important that your student thinks about a 5y
Aimeejett time they may have heard a certain thing. For example “daddy says we should live in the present.” Instead of putting a bow on top of the house, students should know that the present means what is happening day to day instead of literally a present. This website https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.brighthubeducation.com/lesson-plans-grades-1-2/... has a lesson just for the kids to practice their 5y
Aimeejett homophones. It will be very helpful if they do not understand what a homophone is. #ucflae3414f17 5y

Owl Moon by Jane Yolen is a great RA, 1988 Caldecott award winner that would be great for your classroom library. A little girl and her father go owling. The father calls for the owls but there is no answer. You don't need anything but hope. Sometimes there isn't an owl, but sometimes there is. It is a loving story about a special companionship of a young child and her father as well as humankind's close relationship to the natural world.

Aimeejett The students will see that the girl waited for an owl and it finally happened. It teaches patients and to never give up hope. The UDL principle 4.1 vary the methods for response and navigation and EL 15 reinforce the key ideas you present again and again can be met for this book. These strategies will help the student stay responsive to the story if you keep presenting the key ideas again and again. This website 5y

DrSpalding I love the idea of integrating social studies specifically Geography with this classic book. It is rare to read a story about owling. This can teach students about what traditions other families may have beyond their own. 5y

Hey, Al by Arthur Yorkins is a great TA and PR that is also a 1997 Caldecott winner that would be great for your classroom library. Al, a janitor and his faithful dog, Eddie, live in a single room on the West side. They do everything together. Their room is very crowded and cramped.

Miss Rumphius | Barbara Cooney

Miss Rumphuis by Barbara Clooney is a realistic fiction American book award winner that would be a great RA and S for your classroom library. Miss Rumphuis is the story about Alice Rumphius and her desire to do three things: live by the sea, go to far away places, and make the world a more beautiful place. This is a great story to share with students because it will encourage them to make the world a more beautiful place in their own way.

Aimeejett There are examples of where Alice goes and what she does in the story to give the students a better idea of how to make the world a more beautiful place. The UDL principle 1.3 offers alternatives for visual information. It is important for the students to see pictures of the things Alice is doing to make the world a more beautiful place. Having more visual pictures on the side will help the students see what she is doing. 5y
Aimeejett EL 15 reinforce the key ideas you present again and again. I think this EL strategy will be very helpful while reading his book because if you reinforce what Alice is doing to make the world a more beautiful place they will get a better idea. This website http://www.3rdgradethoughts.com/2012/11/i-heart-miss-rumphius.html?m=1 has a worksheet the students can do to describe how they will make the world a more beautiful place. #ucflae3414f17 5y
DrSpalding This was a yearly read aloud in my classroom. The story promotes the idea that we should leave a positive impact on the world. Remind me to show you some photos of real lupine plants in northern New York. They're beautiful. 5y

Swimmy, being the only black fish finds himself alone and frightened, but eventually he meets many new friends in the ocean. But then he learns their is also still danger, a big fish that eats other creatures.

Aimeejett Helping the fish work together, Swimmy uses his uniqueness and comes up with a way to protect them from being eaten by the big fish.

Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Willems is a MF read aloud that would be great in your classroom library. The pigeon that is trying to drive the bus is doing everything in his power to convince readers to let him drive the bus even though he knows he's not allowed to. The issue with this book is persuasion. The students will think upon a time that he/she was trying to convince someone to do something. The student will most likely believe

Aimeejett people who have previously established themselves trustworthy. It will make the students think about rationality: they may recognize that in order to be convinced of something, evidence and good reasons should be required. For example, your mom can give you a good reason to make sure to eat lunch everyday, which is why it's good to be convinced that eating lunch everyday is a good thing. 5y
Aimeejett The UDL principle 8.3 Forster collaboration and communication. I think it's important for students to communicate on why they should tell the pigeon no and why he isn't allowed to drive the bus. EL 2 promise corporation is also important. It will be essential for students to talk to each other to make sure they understand the real reason why the pigeon isn't allowed to drive the bus. This website 5y
Aimeejett http://www.crystalandcomp.com/books-children-must-read-dont-let-the-pigeon-drive... is a great activity for the students because they can make up what the pigeon says to try to convince the readers to let him drive the bus.

"I Have a Dream" speech brings his

In this activity, students can speak and listen to each other as they discuss these questions: http://rjpalacio.com/for-teachers.html. The students will go more in depth with this novel by discussing these questions. #ucflae3414f17 (CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THIS MOVIE!!!) (edited) 5y
DrSpalding @Aimeejett this post includes all the required information. The discussion guide from the author's website is perfect for literature circle conversations and I like the idea of storytelling sections of the text as well. Your EL/UDL align beautifully! I too can't wait to see the 🎥!!!! 5y
