This F picture book would be great for DR and RT. http://www.penguin.com/static/images/yr/pdf/CrayonsGuide.pdf This website has many different activities that accompany the book. One is the activity that I would do is have the students write a persuasive argument from the perspective of Duncan.

Ramona and Her Mother | Beverly Cleary, Alan Tiegreen

Pickpick

This RF novel is written by Beverly Cleary( my favorite children's author). This book is one of many if the Ramona Quimby series. It is great for RA, IR, and AS. This novel holds a National Book award. I was first introduced to this book as a RA with my third grade teacher, and it certainly did foster my love for reading.

DominiqueL For the classroom, I would have the students compete an author study using edu.glogster.com. Cleary herself, also provides a teacher's guide for the Ramona series. http://www.beverlycleary.com/docs/beverlyclearyteachingguide.pdf The website provides extended activities for the books.

This HF novel is great for a LC, and IR I love this book. I recall first reading it in the 6th grade and it has always been a book that I constantly think about. It is about a girl, Hannah, who hates attending her family's Passover Seder. She does not appreciate or care about her culture and the past. During the Seder, she is transported back in time to WWII to experience the Holocaust in a concentration camp.

DominiqueL http://www.cpalms.org/Public/PreviewResourceLesson/Preview/29360 Cpalms provides a lesson on how and why the setting change in the book has an impact on the characters and the story.

*This is not my original book however the author included this same information as a part of my book Unsung Heroes; Stories of America‘s Bravest Fighters by Brynn Baker.
This NF picture book tells the stories of America's bravest fighters that haven't always been discussed . It tells the stories of a variety of different people such as the Navajo Code Talkers and
It is a great book for IR.

Pay it Forward is a HF novel written by Catherine Ryan Hyde. This book is great for IR and LC. The novel is about a 12 year old boy named Trevor whose class was given the challenge by his teacher to "create an idea to change the world and do it". Trevor decides that he is going to do three big favors for three different people.

DominiqueL When they ask him how can they repay him, he tells them to "Pay it forward" and do something equally as nice for three more people. This book is great as it teaches students about how one person can make a big impact, it also teaches the value of kindness. 5y
DominiqueL Hyde provides a curriculum guide on her website https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5009b021c4aaf650d7f5ff9b/t/5730ad32f85082... with discussion questions and activities to aid the book.

LaurenR The illustrations on the cover are so beautiful that I would definitely read this! 5y
AlexaDP I saw the movie Pay It Forward when I was in elementary school and I remember it making me cry like a baby. I think this is a great book to teach students, because of the lesson it teaches outside of education. Every student needs to read this book or see this movie at least once! 5y

A Whole New Ballgame is a RF Sunshine State Younger Readers award nominated novel. This novel is about two best friends, Rip and Red, who are now fifth graders. They struggle with the adjustment because their new teacher, who also happens to be their new basketball coach, isn't like ones they have had before;

DominiqueL He has a lot of tattoos and piercings, doesn‘t believe in homework or tests and would rather be reading aloud to the class or having them free read. Rip is out of his comfort zone, but Red is struggling even more. Red has autism and he needs things to be a specific way. Through this book, the two friends have to help one another overcome some of their struggles and get through the fifth grade. 5y
DominiqueL This book is fantastic because it is teaching students that people are much more than the simple labels that they are given. I absolutely love this story and the illustrations are really cool. This book is great for IR, RA, and LC. Rip and Red have a best friend handshake, and I think that it would be really fun to as a class learn the handshake. 5y

All her peers laugh at her, but her teacher believes that it‘s a great idea.

The True Story of the Three Little Pigs is a fun TL picture book that is a great resource for storytelling. This is a great book for teaching perspective and point of view. There are many other books that are a twist on the traditional Three Little Pigs story, which can aid to the lesson. A specific activity that I would do is have a mock trail to determine if the Wolf is guilty.

Floribelg The title of this book definitely caught my interest. Your comparison of the book between Wonder definitely makes me want to read this book. Great choice of ESOL strategy choosing to make Venn diagrams to visually see the contrast between books. 5y
DominiqueL @Floribelg I can already imagine one of the difference being the genres. What is good about these two books is that their genres can compliment one another for the lesson. Since RF can actually occur it would be good to have an actual real life example of what they‘ve read in the other book. There is a big opportunity for many text to text connections. 5y
