In The Doghouse (F) by Leslie Kimmelman would be great for students who are in the early stages of reading and a lot of children who love dogs could relate to this book due to the happy ending. The UDL guideline I would use is 9.3 and the ESOL strategy I would use number 10. For more information on this book click here http://www.lesliekimmelman.net/my-books/catalog/16-in-the-doghouse-an-emma-and-b...

JennaMichelleCohn This looks great! I love incorporating animals into lessons because I think it teaches empathy and kindness, and engages them because kids typically love animals. 1mo
Jewelwinkler Children would read this book independently 1mo

leximcmillin This book looks really fun and cute! I would love to check it out to possibly add it to my classroom library! 1mo
Camrynm I love these books that teach kindness. I will have to read it! 1mo
KevinKantola Must read for all dog fans 🐶 1mo
sbombasi I like how you said this would be great for students in early ages to relate to having a dog. It can really engage them to start reading more too either to the same kind of books or in general. 1mo
DrSpalding Is this realistic fiction? Students and adults alike can make connections easily to dog ownership. Good book helpful resource. 14h

Late Nate in a Race (F) by Emily Arnold McCully is a great book for children who are in the beginning stages of learning how to read. I would have children read this book with a partner.

Grandpa Loved (RF) by Josephine Nobisso is a book that a lot of children can relate to if they have a Grandpa that they love in their life or if they have lost one. I would RA this book. The UDL guideline I would use is 1.1 and the ESOL strategy I would use is number 4. For More information on this book https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/books/grandpa-loved-by-josephine-nobisso/

JennaMichelleCohn I‘m interested in if this story deals with the topic of death at all? I haven‘t read it but I think it‘s important to touch on this with students and teach them coping skills. 1mo
kradebaugh This is such a great book. I bought this book for my own kids and its one they love to have my dad read. 1mo
JRone As someone who was very close to both of my grandpas and lost them both a couple of years ago, I have to read this book. It sounds so heartwarming and a book that I would love to buy and pass down onto my children one day. 1mo
DrSpalding Scholastic is a high-quality resource and this sounds like a great book to read to children around grandparents day! Many personal connections can be made. 14h

The Pigeon HAS to go to School (F) by Mo Willems is about a Pigeon who really doesn‘t want to go to school. I think children will relate to this book and find it enjoyable to read. I would have a child who likes to present give a DR to the class. The UDL guideline I would use is 2.4 (have it printed in other languages that were used in my classroom) and the ESOL strategy I would use is number 20.

Jewelwinkler To see Mo Willems read this book click here https://youtu.be/YiHqMITqyOA 1mo
maciforster I love the read aloud of the author reading the book! The topic also seems like something the students would love. 1mo

#ucflae3414f19
Titanicat (HF) by Marty Crisp is the cutest story of a cat and a little boy. I think children would really enjoy this book because of the connection between the cat and the boy and they will also learn a little about the Titanic. I would have children read this independently. The UDL guideline I would use is 3.1 and the ESOL strategy I would use is 29 to offer more information about the Titanic.

Jewelwinkler A resource that shares more about this book is https://www.biguniverse.com/library/books/titanicat 1mo
kgarzon This sounds like a great book to gently introduce the topic of the Titanic! 1mo
AlyssaB Aww this book sounds so cute and awesome! 1mo
Shannyblake The cover of this book grabbed my attention! I love cats. Your UDL and ESOL strategies align well :) 1mo
DrSpalding You need to expand a bit on your universal design and English learner strategies overall however you are aligning them to the resource chosen. A bit more detail needed. 14h

Among the Hidden | Margaret Peterson Haddix
post image
Pickpick

#UCFLAE3414f19 Among The Hidden (SF) by Margaret Peterson Haddix was definitely my favorite book in the 5th grade so I had to re-read this book and see if I still loved it. The answer is yes. This book takes you to a dystopian reality where parents are only allowed to have 2 children. This book keeps you on the edge of your seat. I would have children read this as part of a literature circle.

Jewelwinkler The UDL guideline I would use is 2.1 and the ESOL strategy I would use is number 23. A resource that provides comprehension worksheets for this book is https://worksheets.edhelper.com/books/Among_the_Hidden.htm 1mo
kgarzon As someone who loves reading this series as a kid and did an author study on Haddix, I can confirm that students will not be able to put this book down ❤️ 1mo

#ucae3414f19
What an amazing book! I never thought I would relate to a 10 year old boy so much. Wonder ( RF) by R.J Palacio takes you through the challenges of a little boy with a facial deformity named August Pullman. Everyone should share this book with their class. I would use literature circles for this book so the children can really discuss all of the aspects together and have healthy discussions.

Jewelwinkler The ESOL strategy I would use is number 48 and 36. The UDL guideline I would use is 7.2. And amazing resource for this book is https://wonderthebook.com/books/wonder. You can even see the book trailer! 1mo

The Very Hungry Caterpillar (F) is so fun to read to little ones while at the same time educational. This book could be great to teach addition. As you can see by the title it is about a VERY hungry caterpillar! I would do a RA for this book so the children can enjoy the full experience. The ESOL strategy I would use is number 14 and the UDL guideline would use is 2.1 a great resource to show how math can be used in this book:

JennaMichelleCohn Is that you in the picture?? So cute! It‘s interesting how some books we grew up with stay popular. There are some that we will read to our kids that were probably read to our parents. It‘s cool how time changes but some stories will always age well and be easily relatable even half a century later. (edited) 1mo
Jgolub13 I love the picture! Brings back memories of reading that book with my Grandmother. 1mo

#ucflae3419f19 This B is great for students to learn about the woman's suffrage movement in America. I would have the students read this book in a LC so that the students can have healthy discussions regarding the woman's rights movement. The UDL guideline I would use for this book is 3.3 ) Guide information processing and visualization).

Jewelwinkler The EL strategy I would use is number 28 (Provide biographies of significant men and women from different countries). After the students are done reading the book I would show them real women that fought for voting rights. For more information about this book and how to discuss this topic with children visit https://www.commonsensemedia.org/book-reviews/around-america-to-win-the-vote-two... 2mo
DrSpalding Late (edited) 2mo
DrSpalding Read this... then revise your genre to match your ESOL strategy which is spot on! “Around America to Win the Vote: Two Suffragists, a Kitten, and 10,000 Miles, by Mara Rockliff and illustrated by Hadley Hooper, is the fascinating true tale of two intrepid women who drove cross country in 1916 to build support for women's suffrage, a surging movement that won women the right to vote in 1920.”- Common Sense Media (another excellent resource) 2mo

#ucflae3414f19 This TL book is great for helping students develop a sense of narrative structure.

Chameleons | Erika and Jim Deiters
post image

#ucflae3414f19 This NF book is great for incorporating science within literature. This book supports the National Science Standards and it describes the habitat characteristics, and life cycle of chameleons. I used to love these types of books when I was in elementary school because I loved and still do love all animals! For this book I would have my students read this with a partner so that they can discuss the animal throughout the book.

Jewelwinkler The UDL guideline I would use for this book is 2.4 (Promote understanding across languages) as this book or certain key vocabulary could easily be translated into whatever language that is needed. The EL strategy I would use is number 43 (Have students underline or highlight key words or important facts in written assignments). 2mo
Jewelwinkler This book would be perfect for a research type of assignment where the students would use the knowledge they read to write an informative essay, or complete a presentation.

#ucflae3414f19 This RF book is about how a family is on an adventure to find a bear but it doesn't turn out the way they hoped! This book would be perfect for a DR since you the students could easily act out the different scenes in this book. The UDL guideline I would use for this book would be 3.2 (Highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships) as this book is repetitious (in a good way!)

Jewelwinkler The EL strategy I would use is number 17 Provide contextual support through audio visuals, models, demonstrations, realia, body language and facial expressions) since this book will be acted out it will provide a great visual representation for EL's.

#ucflae3414F19 Blended by Sharen M. Draper is an awesome RF book that would be perfect to add to your classroom library. It is very relevant to today‘s problems and it gives an insight to the ups and downs of discovering ones identity. This book would be great for literature circle as there are so many great discussion topics that can really get the students engaged.

The Wizard of Oz | Lyman Frank Baum, Charles Santore

Pickpick

#UCFLAE3414F19 The Wizard of Oz was originally written by L. Frank Baum in 1900, however this book is a condensed version of the original. The condensation of the text and illustrations are done by Charles Santore. This Modern Fantasy book is perfect for a literature circle since it is a longer and has so many different elements for the students to discuss over the course of a couple of weeks.

Jewelwinkler This book would immerse readers into a world of fantasy and teach them the meaning of friendship as well as being confident in yourself. For this book the UDL guidelines I would follow would be 8.3 (foster collaboration and community) 9.3 (develop self-assessment and reflection) and 6.1 (guide appropriate goal- setting). 2mo
Jewelwinkler The EL strategies I would use for this book would be 6 (continually monitor students comprehension) and 44 (focus on thinking skills). Since these EL strategies would be useful during a literature circle. Some more information about how literature circles work in the classroom can be found here http://www.litcircles.org/Structure/struct4.html 2mo

#UCFLAE3414F19 On The Night You Were Born is a beautifully written Poetry book by Nancy Tillman. This book is a New York Times bestseller. This book is about how special each and every one of us are. I think it would be great to do a RA for this book so that you can make it come across very meaningful.

Jewelwinkler The UDL strategy I would use for this book is 7.3 (minimize threats and distractions) because I think this book would be best understood with full attention. 2mo
Jewelwinkler The EL strategy I would use with this book is number 3 (encourage self talk/ positive thinking) since this book is all about how amazing it is to be yourself and number 10 (teach think, pair, and share strategies in cooperative groups) since I would ask the students HOT questions after I‘ve read the book. https://www.nancytillman.com/books/night/ 2mo

#ucflae3414F19 There‘s A Fly Guy In My Soup by Tedd Arnold is a humorous modern fantasy book that students will love. This book is about a fly named Fly Guy who goes on a vacation with his owner and gets into some trouble along the way. This book would be perfect for readers theatre and I think the class would really enjoy acting this book out.

Jewelwinkler The UDL strategy I would use with this book is 8.3 (foster collaboration and community by conducting a readers theatre) and 3.2 (highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships) I would have the children answer questions about these text features as an assessment after reading. 2mo
Jewelwinkler The ESOL strategy I would use is number 22 (give enough wait time for second language learners to respond to questions) and 34 (de-emphasize speed and emphasize accuracy of work) https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/books/fly-guy-12-there-s-a-fly-guy-in-my-sou... 2mo

Who would win? Polar Bear vs. Grizzly Bear is a great example of a non-fiction book that would engage young readers. This book was written by Jerry Pallotta and illustrated by Rob Bolster. This book shows the differences and similarities of the two animals and let‘s the reader decide which animal they think has the advantage. #ucflae3414F19

Jewelwinkler For this book I would have my students participate in Partner Reading since they could each reach the different parts for the polar bear and Grizzly bear. The UDL principle I would use is 1.3 (offer alternatives for visual information). I would show my students a videos of the animals to help the students understand them better. 2mo
Jewelwinkler The EL strategy I would use number 7 (show students how to use graphic organizers). I would have the students use a venn- diagram to compare and contrast the two animals. 2mo

Martin‘s Big Words is a Biography about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This book is written by Doreen Rappaport and illustrated by Bryan Collier This book has received a Caldecott honor award, a Coretta Scott King Award, and won the best illustrated children‘s book from the New York Times. #UCFLAE3414F19

Jewelwinkler The UDL principal I would use in my classroom would be 2.1 (clarify vocabulary and symbols) since this book has higher level vocabulary. The EL strategy I would use would be number 9 (teach note taking strategy‘s: T-lists, time lines etc) I would have the children create a time line while reading the book since the events in the book are in chronological order. 2mo
Jewelwinkler I would conduct a RA in my classroom for this book since it does have some mature subject matter. I think it would be helpful to read it and then discuss it with the class. 2mo
DrSpalding Two fabulous resources for this biography that can be used well as a read aloud during Black history month or a social studies unit about historical figures that have had a positive impact in our history. 14h
