The Itchy Book! By Levyen Pham and Mo Willems is a fun fantasy sci-fi picture book that is promoted by Mo Willems‘ Elephant and Piggie like reading! This book would be fun to read aloud or even to do readers theater. https://sites.google.com/view/lae3414/readers-theater You can follow along with the dinosaurs to see how itchy they can get! This book lines up with the UDL strategy 3.2 because it does have a repetitive nature of saying

Gabylaurel10 “Dinosaurs don‘t scratch” Thus allowing students to read chorally with you! This picture book is also perfect for the ESOL strategy 17 especially with readers theater by providing visuals and physical activity when they present! #UCFLAE3414SuB18 1y
ERodriguez This book seems great for readers theatre. 1y
SierraC The books looks so fun! I want to check it out for my classroom library! 1y
DrSpalding I have not seen this one and love the idea of using it for readers theater. Beautifully aligned to the EL strategy number 17! 1y

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly illustrated by Pam Adams is a traditional literature picture book that would be perfect for a story telling! Above is my visuals used for when I did a story telling https://sunflowerstorytime.files.wordpress.com/2011/09/there-was-an-old-lady1.pd... This story telling activity would work well with the ESOL strategy 17 of using audio visuals, models, body language, and demonstrations.

Gabylaurel10 This book also works well with UDL strategies 5.1 and 5.2 of having multiple media and tools for communication, construction, and composition. #UCFLAE3414SuB18 1y

Junie B. Jones Is a Party Animal by Barbara Park is a modern fantasy novel. This book is perfect for young readers. This book is the 10th book in the series and it entails Junie‘s experience of going to Lucille‘s richie nanna‘s House for a sleep over! This book would be good as a read aloud. My teacher would read us these books whenever we had some time in class and we always enjoyed them! An activity is to help Junie pack her bag just like in

Gabylaurel10 The image posted! http://juniebjones.com/media/printables/teachers/010_bags.pdf this chapter book lines up with UDL principles 8.3 by reading aloud as a group to foster collaboration and community especially when asking questions while reading. This book also aligns with the ESOL principle 14 by reading slower for students to understand! #UCFLAE3414SuB18 1y
ATejada Oh my goodness!!! I used to read Junie B Jones when I was in elementary school because I thought she was so funny! Comedy is a great way to get your students into a good book! Thanks for sharing! 1y

Pickpick

Pete the Cat and his Magic Sunglasses written by Kimberly and James Dean and illustrated by James Dean is a fantasy picture book. Pete is having a bad day until he gets to wear magic sunglasses. This book goes on to leave the lesson that you should look out and see the good in everyday. This books would be good in either a read aloud or an author study!

Gabylaurel10 This book also lines up with UDL Principles 9.2 and 9.3 because it teaches students how to have coping skills and develop self reflection. The ESOL strategy 3 of promoting self talk works well as well. Here is some info to create an author study kids can use in a literacy center! http://www.petethecatbooks.com/meet-the-author-illustrator/ #UCFLAE3414SuB18 1y
DrSpalding I love Pete! Don‘t forget you can get a plush character of him at Kohl‘s department store right now. 1y

This book goes in to another one of Skippy‘s many fantasies this time he is in a circus! These books are such a fun read that even my boyfriend gets a kick out of them!!

The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Dewalt and illustrated by Oliver Jeffers is a E. b. White Read Aloud Award wining modern fantasy picture book. All of Duncan‘s crayons go on strike leaving him hilarious notes for their reasoning. This book is well suited for many different grade levels from kindergarten with learning colors to high school learning about unions and what strikes are.

Gabylaurel10 Some activities that can be used is teaching sentence completion with fill in the blanks which would be good with the ESOL strategy 3 of positive thinking. There‘s also persuasive writing activities that allows older kids to learn how to write. This works with UDL principle 4.1 http://www.crayonspicturebooks.com/day-crayons-quit-activities/ #UCFLAE3414SuB18 1y
JayaJ This books is definitely on my reading list! This is fun read that people of all ages would get a kick out of. 1y

I Got Two Dogs by John Lithgow and illustrated by Robert Neubecker is a poetry biography picture book about John Lithgow‘s two dogs Fanny and Blue. The book is about the tail (haha get it) of two dogs and all the stuff they get into and how much he loves them both! This book would be fun to do literacy centers with it for learning poetry! https://www.kindergartenworks.com/common-core-standards/po-et-tree/

Gabylaurel10 This book can line up with UDL principle 1.1 because you can also listen to this book in a YouTube read aloud with the author or on CD as a song! This picture book also lines up with the ESOL strategy 14 with speaking slowly! #UCFLAE3414SuB18 1y
ATejada I think this would be such a great book and the YouTube video of the read aloud would really engage your students! This is definitely added to my stack! Thanks for sharing! 1y
DrSpalding Knowing you have the YouTube version, this could be a great literacy station for children to follow along while it is read to them. 1y

Do Unto Otters: A book About Manners by Laurie Keller is a fantasy Bank Street Best Children‘s Book of the Year picture book. This book would be excellent in any classroom library even in the secondary levels! This book goes and talk about different mannerisms and how to treat people which anyone at any age might need some help with especially younger kids and older ones might need some reminding 😉

Gabylaurel10 An activity that would best suit this book would be teaching about the Golden Rule especially in the beginning of the school year to create the classroom rules along with creating a positive and friendly classroom community. http://character.org/lessons/lesson-plans/elementary/plattin-primary-school-2/ 1y
Gabylaurel10 This book lines up with UDL strategy 3.1 of activating prior knowledge because the kids should have basic knowledge of having some manners and with 3.2 of highlighting patterns and critical features. This book also works well with ESOL strategy 4 which also goes into detail about prior knowledge. #UCFLAE3414SuB18 1y
DrSpalding I agree that this could be read pre-K through 12 grade! Reminders about the golden rule are always helpful. Nice resource. 1y

The One and Only Ivan | Katherine Applegate
post image
Pickpick

Once I picked up this book it was hard for me to put down! This book would be great for anyone‘s classroom library! The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate is a Newbery Award winning biography fiction novel. I‘d say this book is a biography because Ivan is a real gorilla and it is his story along with it being fiction because he can‘t talk. This book would be perfect to use during LC.

Gabylaurel10 https://sites.google.com/view/lae3414/literature-circles?authuser=0 This book also lines up with UDL principle 4.1 especially if you decide to either do traditional LC or allow students to do digital LC or even a mixed mode. This book also aligns with ESOL strategy 10 because they would be working in groups! #UCFLAE3414SuB18 1y

Who Wants a Cheap Rhinoceros written and illustrated by Shel Silverstein is a modern fantasy picture book. A boy is selling his rhinoceros and is telling us about all the wonderful things they can do to help out around the house. I thought this book was okay, but I do think it would be good for a RA because students might laugh at all the silly things the rhino can do.

Gabylaurel10 http://www.shelsilverstein.com/learning/ I think a fun activity would be to allow students to come up with other fun ways for the rhino to help out around the house, or maybe even what other animals would be fun to have around the house. The UDL principle 2.1 of teaching vocabulary would be good to use with this book. Along with ESOL strategy 5 that also works with teaching vocabulary. #UCFLAE3414SuB18 1y
ERodriguez I have not read the book , but surely will . Sounds like a great book to encourage children to help at home . Great activity, it would be cool to see how many student like to help around the house. 1y
Erothert I haven‘t read this book but I love the activity you used! I think the activity would definitely be not only engaging but fun for the students! 1y
emilybanne This seems like a super fun book, and I love the idea of the kids coming up with other ways the Rhino can help! 1y

What Was the March on Washington by Kathleen Krull and illustrated by Tim Tomkinson is a nonfiction chapter book that would be perfect for GR or even LC. https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/books/what-was-the-march-on-washington-by-ka... By having questions for the students to answer while they read is so important to always set a purpose for reading. Having the “what was” and “who was” books in your classroom library

Gabylaurel10 Is perfect for students to be able to learn more about social studies in a fun way that also endorses reading! The UDL principle 3.3 of guiding informations would be perfect with a guided reading lesson. The ESOL Strategy 13 would be good to preview the text of knowing prior knowledge and then reviewing what the students learned! #UCFLAE3414SuB18 1y
ATejada Love these who was/what was books! They are filled with so much information in such a small book! Thanks for sharing! 1y
DrSpalding This is such a great series of books. And as you stated this particular book is an excellent complement to your social studies instruction. 1y

The Umbrella is New York Times Children‘s Picture Book Bestseller List winner. It‘s a low fantasy picture book. Carlos goes into the cloud forest to go see the many different animals and leaves behind his umbrella as he climbs a tree. The animals jump in and go on an adventure. I think this book would be great addition to your classroom library. I would use this book as either a DR or a RT.

Gabylaurel10 http://www.janbrett.com/the_umbrella_play.htm This books lines up perfectly with UDL principles of 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3 of offering different ways to display auditory and visual information, especially if doing an RT. Since there is some Spanish in the book giving the Spanish speaking character to an Hispanic ESOL students will help them feel comfortable reading aloud along with ESOL strategy 4 of linking prior knowledge! #UCFLAE3414SuB18 1y
DrSpalding Technically this is traditional literature. This is Brett‘s version of the mitten but set in the Amazon rain forest. Having books with Spanish words embedded much like the Skippy books, are beneficial to your classroom library. 1y

Unwind by Neal Shusterman is a SF novel and ALA Best Book for Young Adults winner. This book is about a boy named Connor and how he must deal with the fact that his parents are sending him to be unwound. The setting is in the future after a civil war where children can be sent to “harvesting camps” where their organs are donated and they will live on forever through their donated organs.

Gabylaurel10 Although the book seems creepy, it is a really good read that would be perfect for high school students to do an LC with. http://www.litcircles.org/Overview/overview.html This book lined up with UDL principles 4.1 and 4.2 of having vary methods for response and optimize access to tools and assistive technologies. Especially using LC and allowing them to do digital LC roles. 1y

Skippyjon Jones is a E. B. White Read Aloud award winning book written and illustrated by Judy Schachner. I would consider this book to be both P and F because of SkippyJon Jones the talking Siamese cat along with the words all rhyming together and the book having such a fun rhythm to it. I think this book would be perfect for RA. I didn‘t know it had a lot of Spanish in it so it would be perfect with Spanish ESOL students.

Gabylaurel10 Again I think this book would be great with teaching some Spanish words! http://www.skippyjonjones.com/teachers.php There‘s an activity on here that helps students match the English to the Spanish word. This is perfect for UDL principle 8.3 of building a community because it allows for ESOL students to feel comfortable. It would then work really well with the ESOL strategy 12 because it is teaching native speakers Spanish and nonnative speakers 1y

The Rough-Face Girl written by Rafe Martin and illustrated by David Shannon is a TL American Bookseller Pick of the List Book. It is a Cinderella type story of a girl who was seen as ugly and dirty becomes a princess because of the beauty she had on the inside. This picture book would be best used as either S or RT. This book also has excellent vocabulary and teaches about Algonquin culture!

Gabylaurel10 http://stepinto2ndgrade.com/the-rough-face-girl/ The UDL Principle 2.1 and EL strategy 5 work well with this book because they both focus on teaching the students new vocabulary. #UCFLAE3414SuB18 1y

A House for Hermit Crab written and illustrated by Eric Carle is a F picture book.

Gabylaurel10 Along with 2.1 would be good with teaching vocabulary and using thematic learning when teaching the names of the sea creatures. It goes in hand with EL strategy 5 of teaching technical vocabulary that supports key concepts! #UCFLAE3414SuB18 1y
