A beautifully Illustrated RF book that has won the Newbery and Caldecott Awards. It is not only beautifully drawn but the story it's also beautiful. You can use this as an ra book, which I would use it for. Reading and exploring this book can help students better understand the lives of people around them.

A NF book that has large and beautiful images of animals in drawing and photography. A RA book, or a IR book that students can flip through at their leisure or use to gain information with about animals and their habitats. Any random page in the this book is a wealth of knowledge and loaded with easy to read facts and diagrams.

JessicaRosell A cool game I found: http://coolsciencelab.com/build_a_fish.htm, is about animal adaptations and letting students create their own fish and try to survive! It‘s also full of information about the animals, such as ‘predator and prey‘. 6mo

A HF novel that takes place in twelfth-century Korea where a 13-year-old- orphan falls in love with the art of pottery. Tree-ear goes on a journey of self discovery, determination and perseverance. A beautiful tale of a boy growing up and dealing with life‘s problems in the best way he can. This text would be an amazing option for LC. #lae3414sp19

JessicaRosell Carol Hurst‘s Childrens Literature Site has a teachers guide http://www.carolhurst.com/titles/singleshard.html, that can help stimulate discussions and cross curricular activities. By using this book, a student can learn more about pottery, and then create something! Which is a great ESOL Strategy, 46. When used with LC: UDL 3.1, supply background knowledge, and UDL 7.1 that optimizes choice. 6mo

Scholastic offers an amazing array of lesson plans for this book, one that liked would be: ‘Cause and Effect with The Treasure of Green Lake.

Students will love exploring Green Lake, playing an online game and using graphic organizers to find out causes and effects. Supported by ESOL and UDL: 30, 43, 44, and 7.1, 4.1, 3.1.

Having never read a MTH Book I was super excited to read this book. It being #39 left me wanting to read more. Jack and Annie are off to another wild adventure to 1870‘s where they find themselves coming in contact with The HMS Challenger. This book is third in the Merlin Mission' set and is a great addition. While this F /HF book has not won any awards, the series is known by many as a fantastical journey to read.
