Pickpick

This MF book is apart of the Magic Tree House Series. This book was about the adventure of Jack and Annie climbing into the magig tree house and ending up in Africa where they met some interesting gorillas and communicating through sign langauge. This would be a book for IR . https://www.mthclassroomadventures.org/application/files/4114/8604/9857/mth-26-l... provides lesson plans for teachers when using this book.

Estradan An activity included in this website is a game of charades. This goes along with UDL 5.3, this can help students practice and perform that actions speak louders than words. This also aligns with ESOL strategy 18 because students can link a word to an action. # ucflae3414su19 6h

This TL book comes all the way from China and it won the Caldecott award! It provides a spin to the traditional red riding hood story we grew up with because instead of a big bad wolf there‘s a big bad tiger trying to eat 3 children but the children catch on and outsmart the Tiger. This would be a good book for a RT. Students can act like a tiger and the 3 kids, this story includes a lot of dialog, so students will have the chance to act out the

Estradan story. https://www.rif.org/literacy-central/word-search/lon-po-po-word-search this resource is a word search to vocabulary words in the story. This aligns with UDL 2.1 because it clarifies what words students should focus on. This also aligns with ESOL strategy 43 because students can highlight key words on the word search. #ucflae3414su19 1w
MeganKlein This book would be awesome for a RT and I like how it is a twist on a traditional story that almost everyone knows! I definitely want to read this and possibly add it to my own future classroom library! 1w
DMoux Loved this take on Little Red Riding Hood! The twist keeps it fresh and interesting for little ones who may already know the story! Could be a great selection for an IR by a student from Chinese descent as well. 1w
marleed Ohhh. This was the Caldecott Medal the year my son was born! 7d
Summerm very interested in this! I love TL and the way you explained it makes it sound so interesting! 7d

This TL book is a perfect way to include a students L1 if it‘s Spanish. This book could be used as a RA because this gives those who read Spanish a chance to look at the book and listen to it while it‘s read with the class. This book can align with ESOL strategy 16 because this book integrates the ELLs native language through reading. This also aligns with UDL 2.4 because this book can help comprehension with Spanish speakers.

Estradan https://www.storynory.com/the-hare-and-the-tortoise/ This resource provides an audio recording for students who might need to hear the story more than once. #ucflae3414su19 1w
Summerm I love how this link was able to bring you to an audio book! With that resource it can help a lot of people who may not enjoy reading, get to enjoy this book. 1w
gabbymartin This is an excellent resource for the classroom Nadine, small group & whole! I love the idea of this bilingual book because it really draws the engagement from Spanish speaking students & gives them a confidence to be apart of the lesson more because they have a higher level of comprehension. I need to get this book! Great job! @Estradan 1w

BeverlyMel Great book! I think it‘s so important to make sure we have bilingual books or books in different languages to help provide more inclusivity and representation. 1w
DawnS This is really amazing! I like how the resource aligns to it being a bilingual book as well so ELL students can have the opportunity to hear the story before as well. Such a classic story! 1w
MeaganM Great bilingual book! I can‘t wait to incorporate multiple language books in my own classroom one day! 1w
Summerm That is so awesome that this is bilingual! It's hard to find books like that, so having this in a classroom library would be a great addition! 7d

A House is a House for Me | Mary Ann Hoberman

Pickpick

I would consider this book as a P book. It rhymes about a variety of animals and where they live. This would be a good book for a CR with the teacher and students. They rhymes can help build fluency and self-confidence. Although this book has not won any awards a great activity that can be included is for kids to create a model of their own homes, like in the resource below.

Estradan https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/house-house-me.... This activity aligns with ESOL strategy 11 because students can recognize a home is where you live and having them create their home provides context to the word home. This also aligns with UDL 1.1 being able to display what they‘ve learned with a hands on activity. #ucflae3414su19 1w
Summerm I love how this book can help with fluency. A lot of young readers struggle with that, so being able to practice that would be very helpful!

DMoux Loved this activity where students are able to create their own homes. Giving student freedom to create with different items like cereal boxes and paper towels is cost-effective and engaging! 1w

Redwoods | Jason Chin
post image
Pickpick

This was such a cool NF book about redwood trees! Jason Chin provides real life examples mixed with a boys fictional experience when learning about redwood trees. http://jasonchin.net/educators/educational-resources-for-redwoods/ offers great resources for group activities. #ucflae3414su19

Estradan This would be a good book for a PR during a science lesson. The students can investigate trees around them and compare them to redwoods. This aligns with UDL 6.3 because students can organize their information and understanding of what they learned. ESOL strategy 32 aligns because students can work in pairs when learning about these trees. 2w
Summerm I love the resource that you used. So much information about the book. I've always wanted to see a redwood tree, but maybe reading about it would quench my desire for a while. Definitely wouldn't mind reading this! 7d

Way We Do It in Japan | Paige Billin-Frye, Geneva Cobb Iijima

Pickpick

This GREAT RF books is one of my favorites! It‘s about a boy who lived in California but then had to move to Tokyo for his fathers job. This book shares his journey into a Japanese lifestyle. This book would be great RA book because students can learn new unfamiliar Japanese words. The resource below provides background on the author. UDL 1.3 aligns with this resource because information on the author is displayed online. #ucflae3414su19

Estradan https://www.genevacobbiijima.com/category/uncategorized/. This book also aligns with ESOL strategy 24 because this book incorporates a Japanese culture and their language into the curriculum! 2w
DawnS This would be a great book to shift a perspective of learning about cultures. Since most young children only think of it in terms of coming to America, seeing how a US citizen transfers to another country would raise some good questions and I think empathy as well. 2w
DeannaP I love how this is a book about different cultures! It would be perfect to have in the classroom! 1w
Kcompton2912 I love the content of this book. It can really help our students learn about how education is different across the world. It will also help students understand what it is like for the fellow EL students in the classroom. 1w
Bshelton27 I think this would be a great way to incorporate a different language into the classroom! I think Japanese culture is something that isn‘t super popular in the classroom so I love that you did a post on it! 1w

Pickpick

This TL book has won the Caldecott award for the amazing illustrations. This book is about Strega Nona who is the town witch that helps the community with spells, remedies, and food. In this story she hires the help of Big Anthony who loses Strega Nona‘s trust one day. This could be a RA book and the resource below can incorporate a class discussion about trust, punishment and authority. #ucflae3414su19

Estradan https://www.teachingchildrenphilosophy.org/BookModule/StregaNona helps align with UDL 9.3 because it will help students self-assess themselves when it comes to being trustworthy. It also aligns with ESOL 10 because students can talk about trust, punishment and authority in small groups before sharing with the class as a whole. 2w
Summerm The resource you used had so much information about the book! Definitely a good choice! & it seems interesting. I feel like this kind of book would be great for a RA also! 7d

This HF book by Ashley Bryan has won the Newberry Award and the Coretta Scott King Award. This books gives a glimpse of a group of 11 slaves and their lives serving the Fairchild‘s family. It shares their roles in the estate along with their dreams and stories before becoming slaves. It‘s truly a beautiful story to share during a history lesson! It could work as a good S, while reading a magnet board can help describe the roles of each slave.

Estradan https://www.slj.com/?detailStory=ashley-bryans-freedom-over-me-an-interview provides an interview of Mr. Bryan‘s inspiration of Freedom over me. This aligns with ESOL 13 because this interview can help as a review activity. UDL 7.2 also aligns because it provides value and authenticity to a history lesson. #ucflae3414su19 2w

Sparky! | Jenny Offill
post image
Pickpick

Sparky! is a RF book by Jenny Offill and it has won the 2015 Charlotte Zolotow award. This book is about a young girl, who, from the help of her librarian, finds a sloth as a perfect pet. Although, he doesn‘t do many cool tricks, Sparky the sloth, still steals the show his irresistible charm. This would be a great book for a RA if students are learning about animals or pets.

Estradan This can align with ESOL strategy 4 because students can talk about pets and the teacher can provide pictures of common pets. UDL 3.2 fits with the story map because it will help with the big idea and comprehension of the book. An extra resource that could be beneficial during or after reading is this story map https://www.teachingbooks.net/clp.cgi?master_id=39188&lf_id=9. #ucflae3414su19 2w
carlenerubin This book sounds so cute! The story map that you attached is excellent! I cant wait to read this book and share it with my future students! The idea of students sharing about their pets is great! I think I would also include their dream pets as well! 1w
