The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle, fiction. I love how interactive this book is! The pages are amazing! This is a great read aloud book. This book is about a caterpillar eating so much food. He eventually turns in to a beautiful butterfly.

Jenniferj11419 UDL principle 4.1, vary the methods for response and navigation. This book has it all with the flippy pages! UDL principle 5.3, build fluencies with graduated levels of support and practice for performance. 5y
Jenniferj11419 ESOL strategy 14, simplify your speech by making it slow and redundant. This will naturally happen as you are saying what the caterpillar is eating. ESOL strategy 1, teach questioning for clarification. Why didn‘t he stop eating? What happens to caterpillars? 5y
JenniferMc I love this book. A fun interactive read that would be great to add to a classroom library. 5y

Goodnight Moon | Margaret Wise Brown

Mehso-so

Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown, nonfiction. A great read aloud not only for class but also before bed time. Tells a brief narrative about saying goodnight to things before you go to bed. My mother read this book to me plenty of times before I went to bed as a child and to this day I remember it. This book would be a good way to end the school day.

Jenniferj11419 Create goals for this book. ESOL strategy 4, link lesson to prior knowledge. Questions like what do you do before bed? ESOL strategy 9, teach note-taking strategies: T-list, timelines, etc. This is a good idea, maybe have students create a bedtime routine for a post-assignment. 5y

Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson, realistic fiction. This book is about two fifth graders that created an imaginary, exciting land called Terabithia. They go to this to forget about their problems and get away from their other world. This book will be good in a classroom because it talks about friendship, childhood, and being independent. This book will have students using their imagination.

The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill, modern fantasy, John Newberry Medal. This book is about a town that every year leaves a baby to the witch who lives in the forest. The witch in the forest is kind though. The witch in the forest, Xan accepts the babies and delivers the babies to welcoming families on the other side of the forest. LC.

Jenniferj11419 One year, Xan feeds a baby moonlight instead of starlight, causing the baby to obtain extraordinary power. As the baby‘s 13th birthday approaches, her power kicks in. This is a great book for LT. Students can discuss this book and find out through others what they think will happen or what they think is going on. 5y

Martin Luther King Jr. by Bonnie Bader, biography. Martin Luther King Jr. helped organized black people across the country so they would be able to vote and have other basic rights. Martin remained calm and honest even though was being threatened. This book is really to the point. I like how this book focuses on just the main idea of Martin Luther. This book would be a great IR or PR

Jenniferj11419 UDL 1.1 offer ways of customizing information. This book lays out the information about Martin Luther in a very organized and visual way for elementary readers. UDL 2.1 clarify vocabulary and symbols. During the time of this book, there is a lot of history and vocabulary and symbols will be unknown to some students. ESOL 10 strategy think, pair, share in cooperative groups. 5y
Jenniferj11419 Excellent for this book. What do you think about the way Martin Luther Jr is being treated? Is it fair? Does this book give a good sense of what happened in history? ESOL strategy 28 Provide biographies of significant men and women from different countries. Very important for our students who come from different countries to see that we also have important historical events and people. 5y
SadiqaH This book reminds me of Martin's big words the life of Dr. Martin King Jr. I like Biographies because they always have great lessons. 5y

The Giver by Lois Lowry, science fiction, brings back some of Jonas (main character) memories, good, bad, violent, joyful, sad, and happy. These memories are filled with color and emotions. The relationship between Jonas and the Giver becomes very strong throughout the book. At first, I did not think the relationship would grow to what it grew to. Great LC book.

UDL strategy 1.1, offer ways of the display of information. This author really puts the reader in to Jonas‘ mind. We are witness exactly what he is going through his mind and his body. UDL strategy 8.3, foster collaboration and community. This book has the reader going through many different approaches through Jonas‘ mind.
5y
Jenniferj11419 Asking questions like “why?” and “how?” is a good way to have students talking open-mindfully about the chapters. ESOL strategy 3, encourage self-talk. Ask the students want they think will happen next, are Jonas‘ feelings normal? How would you feel? ESOL strategy 10, teach think, pair, share, and share strategies in cooperative groups. 5y
Jenniferj11419 Have the students discuss the book together. Have the students learn from eachother. While I was reading this book my mind was constantly changing! I could never figure out what could possible happen next.

Stick and Stone | Beth Ferry

Stick and Stone by Beth Ferry, fantasy. This book about “sticking” together is great for a classroom. This book will teach students the value of friendship and what it takes to be in a friendship. The stick and the stone in this book represent friends. Definitely a quick read aloud book. I would suggest this book when there is a behavioral issue with students in the classroom, just to remember that students are supposed to be there for each other.

5y
Jenniferj11419 ESOL strategy 5, teach technical vocabulary supporting key concepts. Maintaining a friendship is an important key concept. ESOL strategy 15, reinforce the key ideas you present again and again. We want our students to remember this book and why it is so important, friendship. 5y

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein, poetry, Michigan Young Readers George G. Stone award. This memorable book is about a boy that needs money, a home, and boat. The generous tree supplies the boy with what the tree can; apples, branches, and trunk. While giving this boy everything he had, the tree was always happy. Great independent reading book, especially for students who do not have a tree like figure in their life!

Jenniferj11419 The branches, truck, and apple all represent something to the boy. ESOL strategy 3, encourage self-talk (positive thinking). Is the tree did nice? Why is this book called The Giving Tree? Did the boy show appreciation of the tree? ESOL strategy 14, simplify your speech by making it slow and redundant. This will helpful not only for the students to understand you better, but also for the emotional parts of the book. 5y

Freedom in Congo Square | Carole Boston Weatherford

Freedom in Congo Square by Carol Boston Weatherford, Charlette Zolotow award, nonfiction. In this book we follow slaves doing hard work and waiting for their day of freedom, Sunday. On Sunday they set up an open market, dance, sing, and play music. This was simply a day of freedom; the slaves really cherish and value their Sundays. I actually did a lesson plan for RED 3012 during a previous semester for this book. RA

Jenniferj11419 The lesson plan was to have students create their own calender of when they go to school and when they have free time. This is a good choral reading book (CR). I think saying the number of days left they have in Congo Square will help the students stay engaged in the reading. They would be saying (out loud) “(# number of days) more days to Congo Square”. 5y

Ballet for Martha: Making Appalachian Spring by Jan Greenburg, Orbis Pictus award winner, non-fiction. This picture book is about a ballerina will unusual dance steps. All she needs to get music, a set, and dancers. While flipping the pages in this book we see how a ballerina made her dream come true and how she was able to get her performance together.

Jenniferj11419 I think students will have different opinions of this book mainly because how they interpret each illustration will be very different and creative. This is a good DR (dramatic reenactment); students can show there cooperation with a group as well as some of their best ballerina moves. 5y

(Ignore the title from Litsy) Little Roja Riding Hood by Susan Middleton Elya, Pura Belpre Award, Fairy Tale, Ficiton. First off, this book stands out because of its text. The text in this book is English with some Spanish words. The Spanish words in this book were specifically placed so Spanish speakers can follow along and understand somewhat what is going on. This book is very similar to Little Red Robin Hood.

Jenniferj11419 In this book, “Roja” must travel through the woods to bring her grandmother “sopa (soup)” because her grandma is a little sick. Roja runs in to a wolf who takes her cape. Very much like the traditional Little Red Robin Hood with Spanish words within the English narration. This book would be a great S (storytelling) book. 5y
Jenniferj11419 As a teacher to be able to read a book and point out the words that are in another language is important. Also the translations in this book are not anything you need to think about, it is pretty obvious what the English translation is, especially with the context clues and illustrations! 5y
See All 11 Comments
Jenniferj11419 UDL principle 1.1, customizing the display of information definitely works because the author is able to incorporate Spanish words in this book specifically for Spanish language learners. UDL principle 2.4, promote understanding across languages, not only are Spanish language learners learning English but English speakers are learning some Spanish. 5y
Jenniferj11419 ESOL strategy 11, place language in meaningful text. This is very important for this book! The way the Spanish words are placed in this book is so Spanish speakers can follow along easier and understand what some of the English words mean. 5y
Jenniferj11419 ESOL strategy 22, give enough wait time for Spanish speakers to respond to questions. As teachers we have to remember it takes time for our students to think and process an answers, so double that for our Spanish speakers (specially for this book). 5y
SadiqaH The way you described this book is motivating me to read this book. Also , ESOL strategies seem effective. Great choice. 5y
Noelle5 This book would be great to incorporate in the classroom because of its Spanish incorporation! I would love to check this book out and eventually purchase, great for Spanish ELs and even kids who are interested in the Spanish language, very cool! 5y
Kendallc I love fairytales and this is super cute. Love the little spin, and how it incorporates Spanish as well 5y
ambera This would be a great addition to any classroom library. Not only would it allow your students to learn a little bit of Spanish but it would also give your Spanish speakers a book they can turn to. 5y

Miss Rumphius by Barbara, American Book Award, Fiction. What a great book. This book is obviously memorable to me, I read this book for a summer reading going in to 2nd grade. This is a story of Miss Rumphius (told by her great niece), a little old lady, and her obligation to do three things: live by the sea, go to faraway places, and make the world a more stunning place.

Jenniferj11419 The language and illustrations in this book are truly amazing and memorable. Since I read this book as a summer reading I would like to make this book an IR (independent reading), I think students will grow a relationship with this book like I did, and students will remember this book as I do.
5y
Jenniferj11419 UDL principle 3.2 highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships. Miss Rumphius has several relationships in this book that are very important to the plot that should be focused on. UDL principle 7.1 optimize individual choice and autonomy. Like I said before I want this book to be an IR, children can gain independence and confidence from this book. 5y

Jenniferj11419 ESOL strategies 6, continuously monitoring students comprehension; in this particular book there are many scenes and different relationships the reader needs to understand. 5y
Jenniferj11419 ESOL strategy 9, teach note taking strategies: T-lists, time line etc. is great because throughout this book you are going an adventure and finding out information about Miss Rumphius, so it would be a good idea to keep a time line as you are reading, may be a good summer reading project then. 5y

Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell, historical fiction, National Book Award for Novel. This book tells a story during the Civil War. Scarlett O‘Hare has a hard time coping with her town, Tara, that has fallen apart after the Civil War. Scarlett has several relationships, she is in one that she married for financial purposes. This is definitely a book full of tragedies and depressing moments.

Jenniferj11419 As I read this book, I remember catching my mouth wide open. This would be a good PT (partner reading), especially for the students that enjoy romance novels. This book would be targeted to upper level elementary. 5y
Jenniferj11419 . The UDL principle 6.2 support planning and strategy development is useful because as you read this book you should be taking notes and planning as to what exactly is happening. The UDL principle 8.2 vary demands and resources to optimize challenge is good so students can research information. 5y

Jenniferj11419 ESOL strategy 2 promote corporation I think this will naturally happen, as this book is about drama and how the reader feels about certain situations. ESOL strategy 42 have students use time lines to arrange and sequence important facts and information is perfect for this book! There is a lot going in this book during the time period of the Civil War and also with the relationships in this book. (edited) 5y
JordanL This was a book I've always heard about, but never read it. I never knew what it was about, but now understanding about the relationships aspects along with its time period of the Civil War, it seems like an interesting concept.

Charlottes Web, the Newberry Award winning book tells an adventurous story about a pig first trying to “fit in” with the other farm animals, and second, trying to not be “food on the dinner table”. Fern is the daughter of the farm owner and is the reason the pig is still alive, she begs her father to let him go. In this book there is plenty of relationships and what I like to call “bonding moments”. I think this is a great RT book.

Jenniferj11419 I think this is a great RT book. I think 5th graders especially can come up with a 5-10 minute skit that sums up this book.

The Rainbow Fish tells an underwater story about a fish who has many types of beauty based on her scales. Everyone has plenty of unique and special traits that makes who we are today. These traits need to be known and shown, we should not be scared to show all of our scales like Rainbow Fish does. This book would be a great RA book.

Jenniferj11419 Especially in first grade or a time where there are behavioral issues going on inside your classroom you think is important to be addressed and that the student should learn that everyone is equal and no one is better than another. 5y

Ill Give You the Sun, Printz award winning novel is an interesting book (traditional literature) about fraternal twins that are of course inseparable, until, of course jealousy and misunderstandings. Both are great artist and both struggle with their gender. Noah is gay and Jude is recovering from her first terrible sexual experience at the age of 14. In this book, the story of these twins are told through their perspectives.

Jenniferj11419 This book really has an ending that will give you goose bumps. One the siblings attempts to commit suicide and the twin comes to the rescue. I was a little frustrated with the perspectives at the ending of the book though UGH. This would be a great LC book along with many other books about family, relationships, and acceptance. 5y

When I Was Young in the Mountains is the 1983 Caldecott award winner. This a story about a girl that never wanted to leave her grandparents house in the mountains. This would be a great RA book, espeically for Grandparents Day! The theme of this book is whT family life is about and the simple pleasures of growing up. #UCFLAE3414SP18

Jenniferj11419 Children need to understand how important family is and that they never get too old to be with their family, especially their grandparents. I think this book also teaches children that things like family should never be forgotten.

The Adventure of Beekle the Unimaginably Friend is the 2015 Caldecott Medal award winner. This is a story about an unimaginably friend on an adventure to find a real friend. The theme of this book is to not give up when you feel lonely and looking for a friend, they will come. In the end, they both realize they were meant to be friends with each other and their lives a lot less lonely. This book would be a great RA book. #UCFLAE3414SP18
