Hurry freedom by Jerry Stanley won the National book award and nominated for the Orbis Pictus award as well. This book is about African American forty-niners who went west to seek fortunes and freedom in the California Gold Rush. This book is very big an both a picture and novel book. This can help student with their research projects on the California Gold Rush I they wish to use it. Didn't really find any lesson plans for this book.

Jaquessial UDL: 2.1, Clarify vocabulary and symbols. ESOL: #48, use grip assignments, portfolios, learning journals and non print options as alternative assessment. A biography and historical book. (edited) 5y

The rough face girl by Rafe Martin is a retold Cinderella of the Algonquin Indian version. This is a traditional literature book that is beautifully written. http://study.com/academy/lesson/the-rough-face-girl-lesson-plan.html so many activities for this book. Just amazing. ESOL: #24 incorporate the culture an the language of second language learners in the curriculum. Ask them about other Cinderella stories they might have heard of.

Jaquessial UDL: 2.5 illustrate through multiple media. Make our own version of cinderella or classic story. #ucflae3414f17 5y
Samantha.K I want to read this book. It looks like it is a good book. I love that the link you provided has different Cinderella stories that the students could read about. 5y

Frog and road are friends by Arnold Lobel is one of my favorite childhood books of all time. This fiction book is a Caldecott award winner. A collection of short stories about two best friends (one is a toad and the other a frog) expecting many new adventures. https://mrswillskindergarten.com/frog-toad-lesson-plans/ Mrs. Wills has so many wonderful activities for kindergarteners and it's just amazing.

AlexaDP I remember reading this book over and over when I was younger and seeing it when our class went to Barnes and noble and being super excited! I loved the link you provided as well because it gives the teacher‘s using it options in what lesson plan they may or may not want to use! 5y
KayleeC I thought your resource was great! I really like the compare and contrasting of the characters. 5y

A Wrinkle in Time is a science fantasy novel written by Madeleine L'Engle. This award winning Newberry book is full of many adventures for middle age students. I loved this book and cant wait for the movies. https://educators.brainpop.com/bp-topic/a-wrinkle-in-time/ I loved the idea of having discussion hours or this book.

Pickpick

Brown Girl Dreaming is a poetry book that has won the national book award, Boston Globe Horn Award, Coretta Scott king award and john new entry award. This book takes you through the authors adolescent years told in verses by Jacqueline Woodson. It discusses the author's childhood as an African American growing up in the 1960s and '70s.

Jaquessial http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/exploring-perspec... this site take you too many activities that relate to the book and open children up to historical events that they may not know about or understand. 5y
Jaquessial The ESOL strategy I would use would be number 43, Have students underline or highlight key words or important facts in written assignments. 5y
Jaquessial UDL 8.3 Foster collaboration and community. 5y

The velveteen rabbit, by Margery Williams is a picture book about a stuffed rabbit and his desire to become real, through the love of his owner. Wonderful CF bookhttp://study.com/academy/lesson/the-velveteen-rabbit-lesson-plan.html this site had an idea of brining your own animal doll to class. Thought that was pretty nice for the students. UDL: 7.3, minimize threats and distractions. ESOL: #34, De-emphasize speed and emphasize accuracy of work.

DrSpalding What a neat activity to make a text to world connection and text to self connection by allowing them to bring their animal/dolls to school. This is a classic story that is loved by many!🐇 5y

The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith is a hilarious, fun, F children's literature book. The wolf tells his side of the story of how the classic tale of the three little pigs actually happened. Teaching strategies to use in the class would be RA, SR, and IR. #ucflae3414F17

Jaquessial UDL strategy best for this book would be 1.1, offer ways of customizing the display of information. Esol strategy #36, ask numerous questions which require higher level thinking responses. 5y

I knew you could by Craig Dorfman is a wonderful children's literature fantasy picture book that makes a great gift for anyone in school and just dealing with trouble in their life. The little engine keeps going and trying his hardest to make it over a hill and at the end he reminds himself and celebrates with the oh so famous inspirational sentence "I knew you could". #ucflae3414F17

Jaquessial This is an awesome book for teaching strategies in anyone's classroom that wants to do CR, RT, S and RA. (edited) 5y
Jaquessial UDL strategy for this book would be 6.1, Guide appropriate goal-setting within the classroom. I would ask every student what their goal is for the school year and how they would want to achieve it. 5y
Jaquessial An Esol strategy best for the bp would be #3, Encourage self-talk(positive thinking). Every week I would put a new quote on the quote wall for everyone to read and remember. This brings positive vibes in the classroom be children will love it. 5y

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is an American children's book written by Judi Barrett and illustrated by Ron Barrett. This book is a fantasy and did not win any awards but, the author has wrote many other books as well that deals with food coming to life and taking over the world. This book will make you very hungry while you read and is funny as well. #ucflae3414F17

Jaquessial UDL strategy I would use in my class 2.3. With this book you are able to teach on some mathematics and symbolism of science as well. Compare and contrast the weather in the book to the weather outside in the real world. 5y
Jaquessial Esol strategy best for teaching with this book would be #46, use discovery learning activities( hands-on-activities). Because this has a lot of science and math within the book you could have students create projects like a cloud with different types of food coming out of it and many other fun things. 5y

Traveling from an asteroid, he left his rose there to discover the world. Before landing on Earth he visited many planets with grown up inhabitants that are most common vice. Meeting a fox tell him that the eyes are blind and we are responsible forever for what you tame.

Jaquessial This book is for all ages. With this book you can take away many messages from it however many times you read it. https://www.teachingbooks.net/tb.cgi?tid=4080&a=1 Teachers have many activities to go about with their lesson from this book. 5y

Stella by Starlight | Sharon M. Draper

Pickpick

This New York Times Bestselling book is a wonderful HF for children to read in class as a LC assignment. When the Ku Klux Klan‘s unwelcome reappearance rattles Stella‘s segregated southern town, bravery battles the men and women in the town as they come together through a terrorizing time for themselves and their family. This website take you to a great lesson plan with activities https://sharondraper.com/stella-common-core.pdf #ucflae3414F17

Jaquessial A UDL strategy that I would use for this book would be 2.1, Clarifying vocabulary and symbols. In "Stella by Starlight" I came across many words that even myself I didn't know what it meant so the dictionary became my friend while reading this book. This would be a great book to test vocabulary words from and for Literature Circles as well. (edited) 5y
Jaquessial Esol strategy number 30, Encourage the use of diagrams and drawings as aids to identify concepts and seeing relationships. "Stella by Starlight" is a great book for using diagrams in the class. So many people are talking And have so much to say in the book that many students might get confused on who is who. So it's always best to make a plot diagram, and a Venn diagram for characters. Students will be able to keep these as a resource to the book. 5y
Jaquessial Teaching strategies: LC, PR, IR, and SR 5y
DrSpalding You went straight to the source, the author for a wonderful resource to effectively utilize this in your classroom. Again it could be used in many ways and of course will teach children valuable historical lessons. Excellent synopsis and alignment. 5y

The One and Only Ivan | Katherine Applegate

Pickpick

A Newberry award winning book "The one and only Ivan" by Katherine Applegate is a wonderful heartbreaking book about a Great Silverback that spent 27 years behind glass walls of an enclosure in a shopping mall, Ivan has grown accustomed to humans watching him. He hardly ever thinks about his life in the jungle until he meets a new animal from the wild. This fantasy book will touch you in many ways. Couldn't put the book down. #ucflae3414F17

Jaquessial https://www.novelstudies.org/downloads/The_One_and_Only_Ivan_Novel_Study_Preview... This is a wonderful lesson plan for kids to learn new vocabulary. I also thought of some ideas to input vocabulary bingo either as a team game or indivisible game to win prices. While learning their words for the vocabulary test. The one and only Ivan is a HF, B, and F. (edited) 5y
Jaquessial For Esol strategy 48,Use group assignments, portfolios, learning journals and non-profit options as alternative assessments. This could be an exit ticket idea as well. Having students writing down everything that they learned and a summary of the reading each day so that they won't forget anything. Every day the teacher can ask the students what was yesterday's lesson about and the reading. Helps generate memorization. 5y
Jaquessial UDL 6.2 strategy, Support planning and strategy development goes hand-in-hand with Esol strategy 48. This helps with organization. 5y
Jaquessial Teaching strategies: LC, SR, IR, AS, and PR 5y
DrSpalding You are correct that there are so many strategies that could be utilized effectively with this powerful book. Your passion for this title came through in your post. Nice job aligning the UDL and EL strategies. 5y

This award winning Realistic Fiction for Sunshine State Young Readers book by R.J. Palacio is so moving and fantastic that I had to buy a copy for myself to reread again. Wonder is about a little boy name August Pullman, a boy with facial differences who enters fifth grade, attending a mainstream elementary school for the first time. In the book he inspires children and adults about being extraordinary and a wonder. #ucflae3414F17

Jaquessial http://www.storyboardthat.com/teacher-guide/wonder-by-r-j-palacio this link will take you to a lesson plan for group work. Kids are able to relate to Auggie in man different ways and help with their English skills through tilt diagrams for the book. 5y
Jaquessial The ESOL strategy I will use will be number 10, teach think, pair and share strategies as well as number 50, For content comprehension use a variety of comprehension activities, such as; strip stories, KWL activities, SQ3R, learning logs, role playing activities, close strategy, etc. Students will be able to get a broader concept of the book through storyboard process and for me as a teacher this will help see where students are with understanding (edited) 5y
Jaquessial The UDL strategy I will use will be number 5.1, Use multiple media for communication. While, using the white board students from each group will be able to come up and write down the information their group came up with and everyone as a class can discuss it. 5y

Moses When Harriet Tubman Led her people to freedom by Carole Boston Weatherford is such a great historical fiction and Biography picture book. Coretta Scott King and Caldecott Honor award.This story is so important for in all grades. This book is about Harriet Tubmans journey to freedom and going back to free many other men and women that were slaves on her old plantation or just from other white homes as well. #ucflae3414F17

Jaquessial https://www.teachingbooks.net/media/pdf/DisneyHyperion/Moses.pdf This website touches on every subject. This lesson can be taught during black history month or just any day.Math is incorporated into the book as well as social studies for how many miles Harriet walked and where she walked to. 5y
Jaquessial The ESOL strategy I would use for my class is number 28, Provide biographies of significant men and women from different countries. This would be great for students to look back on before or after a test as a reference. 5y
Jaquessial The UDL strategy I would use would be number 3.1, activate or supply background knowledge. I would use this in my own class because I believe every child should know about the history of Courageous Harriet Tubman journey to freedom during slavery time. 5y
Sabrinac Hello, I think this would be a great book to have in anyone‘s classroom library! I love that you picked the UDL strategy about background knowledge. I completely agree with you that it is important children know about the history of Harriet Tubman. Great review! (: 5y
