Genre: RF. Teaching Strategy: RA. Nervous about school? This book is a great pick to read a loud the first days of school to promote confidence and motivation to you students. The book encourages them to understand that this is the place(school) where questions are answered and learning is a day by day routine. https://www.wikkistix.com/the-pout-pout-fish-sequencing-activities/ #UCFSU19 UDL: 3.2 EL: promote cooperation (small groups).

raqueldonna Sounds like a great book. I love the idea of reading something like this on the first day of school to introduce students to the learning environment. 👍🏻 3mo
Kayladvazquez I think this is a cute book to read to students like you said: “On the first day of school“. It would be a good ice breaker. The illustrations look great. It helps students know that school is a safe place which is the type of environment we as future teachers want to create in our classroom. 3mo

In Bookworm she helps a local library and things get out of hand when she follows what the book says... word by word. https://b0f646cfbd7462424f7a-f9758a43fb7c33cc8adda0fd36101899.ssl.cf2.rackcdn.co... #UCFSU19 UDL: 9.1 EL: visual support through colorful illustrations to enhance learning.

Kayladvazquez I think this book would be perfect to share when coming back from summer vacation. I would read it as a read aloud and then have the students share what their summer vacation was like. Then I would have them go to their desk and have them compare and contrast their summer vacation to the book summer wonders. 3mo
