The Pigeon is back in another hilarious F book by Mo Willems. This time, the Pigeon finds a hot dog and is very excited to eat it until a little duckling comes along. The Pigeon tries everything to keep the hot dog out of the hands of the duckling. At the end, the Pigeon and duckling come up with a solution to make everyone happy. #ucflae3414f17

KayleeC https://westonwoods.scholastic.com/products/westonwoods/study_guides/Pigeon-Find... This book could support ESOL strategy 13, use preview/review activities and UDL principle 1.2 offer alternatives for auditory information. (edited) 5y
jasminep This seems like such a cute book, thanks for giving me another idea to add to my classroom library! 5y
AlexaDP This pigeon has quickly become one of my favorite book characters this semester! I think it would be great to teach, because the title character is super amusing and will keep the students engaged! 5y
SarahWynne Can‘t wait to read this one. The pigeon books are too cute with just the right amount of humor. I like that you added UDL principle 1.2. I definitely think that‘s a great strategy! 5y
KayleeC @AlexaDP yes! The pigeon is one of my favorites as well! 5y

This humorous F book by Margie Palatini and illustrated by Richard Eglelski would be a wonderful book to read aloud to your students. Ducktective Web and his partner try to quack the care of the stolen peck of perfectly picked pickled peppers. #ucflae3414f17

KayleeC https://www.robeson.k12.nc.us/site/handlers/filedownload.ashx?moduleinstanceid=3... the link will take you to a mini lesson on inferences. This book could support UDL principle 8.3 Foster collaboration and community and ESOL strategy 8 use direct instruction: Modeling, explaining, scaffolding, name the strategy and show how to use it. 5y
SarahWynne Have you ever seen the movie Howard the duck? That‘s what this cover reminds me of lol. Love that you used “quack” in a sentence in the summary, too cute! Mini lesson links are always a win! 5y
KayleeC @SarahWynne yes I have lol! 5y
MakennaK This looks so cute! A good idea that could do is to have your students pretend that they are detectives and find things around the room for an activity 5y

This fun interactive F book by Eric Litwin and James Dean makes for a great for CR! Pete the Cat has a pair of white shoes but he steps in things which stain his shoes. But does Pete cry? Goodness, no! This laid back Cat teaches kids not to worry about the little things and that “it‘s all good”. #ucflae3414f17

KayleeC https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UwUlh3i4qto The link takes you to a video and read aloud of the book. This book could support ESOL strategy 3 encourage self talk (positive thinking) and UDL principle 9.2 facilitate personal coping skills and strategies. 5y
Samantha.K This book has such a positive message. No matter what happened to his white shoes he was happy with them because they were his and he kept his upbeat attitude. 5y
JordanHull Pete the cat is already so captivating, adding a video read aloud would make him even better. Students would be so engaged, great idea! 💡 5y

This cute F story about a mouse, Lilly, by Kevin Henkes is a story that both teachers and students can relate to. I did my book book on this book, but I also did my author study on Kevin Henkes. Lilly loves her teacher Mr. Slinger until he does the meanest thing she could think of, he takes her new Purple Plastic Purse. Lily is furious, by the end of the book she realizes how her words have an impact on other people. #ucflae3414f17

KayleeC This would be a great book to utilize in a math lesson. https://kevinhenkes.com/wp-content/uploads/World-of-Kevin-Henkes-2011.pdf The link will take you to a teacher‘s guide of Kevin Henkes‘ mouse books. This book could support ESOL strategy 16, integrate speaking, listening, reading and writing activities and UDL principle 2.3 support decoding of text, mathematical notation, and symbols. 5y

Quackers | Liz Wong

I read aloud Quackes by Liz Wong at the Read for the Record even and the kids LOVED the story. Quackers is a duck, well at least he thinks he is. When Quackers meets a strange looking duck he discovers he might not actually be a duck. Quackers realizes it does not matter if he is a duck or not, having his friends is what is important. This would be a great book to teach children about acceptance. #ucflae3414f17

KayleeC https://www.jstart.org/read-for-the-record-2/activities-resources-toolkit/ This book could support ESOL strategy 24, incorporate the culture and the language of the second language learners in your curriculum (book is offered in Spanish) and UDL principle 1.1 Offer ways of customizing the display of information. 5y
Teresaj Such an adorable book! Another book that is similar to this one is Not Quite Narwal by Jessie Sima! 5y
JordanHull I love that the book comes in Spanish too. It has such a great message that should reach all students. Read for the Record was a great experience! The activities and your resources would be so beneficial to all students. Great post 👍🏻 5y

SarahWynne How cute would it be to make a hermit crab a class pet when introducing this book?! Eric Carle illustrations are always the best. I‘ll be reading this one for sure! 5y
MakennaK I loved this book as a child! You could bring in hermit crabs as a class pet and have the kids take care of them or make him different shells! 5y

Finding Winnie is a NF, Caldecott winning PB written by Lindsay Mattick and illustrated by Sophie Blackall that would be a great RA for a class. The story is about the world‘s most famous bear, the inspiration for Winnie-the-Pooh. This book is a great and fun way to introduce nonfiction text to young readers in the classroom. There is a lot of great vocabulary in this story as well. #ucflae3414f17

KayleeC The link will take you to an educators guide for the book https://www.perma-bound.com/static/TPR/000457773.pdf
This link is great because it has activities for multiple subjects. Some of the activities would support ESOL 30, encourage the use of diagrams and drawings as aids to identify concepts and seeing relationships. They would also support UDL 7.2, optimize relevance, value, and authenticity.

We Are in a Book by Mo Willems is a humorous F picture book that won the Geisel award. The story follows Gerald and Piggie‘s realization of being in a book. At first they are confused, until they realize they have the power to tell the reader‘s what to say and do. This would be a great book for CR because of its interactive nature and humor. Children will definitely be laughing when they read this book! #ucflae3414f17

KayleeC Here is an adorable reading of the book: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hgnC5V3S-Ig
This reading would support UDL 1.2 Offer alternatives for auditory information and 1.3 Offer alternatives for visual information. It would also support ESOL 21, record your lectures, presentations, or stories on audiotape, especially for new students who have very limited exposure to English.

This series is a great way to introduce biographical book to children because it gives important factual information in a fun narrative and with comic book style illustrations keeping students engaged. This series would make for a great AS. #ucflae3414f17

KayleeC http://www.smartspaceniu.com/just-plane-awesome-learning-what-makes-planes-fly/ Reading a book about Amelia Earhart would not be complete without flying your own airplane. In this activity students will create a paper airplane and fly with the class. This activity supports UDL 8.3, foster collaboration and community. It also supports ESOL 46, use discovery learning activities (hands-on-activities). 5y
MeghanW I absolutely love this series! It is a kid friendly way for younger kids to know important people in history! I love the idea of having the kids make their own airplanes! 5y

KayleeC http://files.harpercollins.com/PDF/TeachingGuides/0060760885.pdf This link provides a discussion guide and activities for the novel. I would use UDL 7.1, optimize individual choice and autonomy, when using the extension activities in the discussion guide. I would allow students to pick which activity they would want to complete. 5y

KayleeC The ESOL strategy i would use with this book is number 14, simplify your speech by making it slower and redundant. The texts lends itself to this well with the rhymes and beat of the words. I would use UDL strategy 3.1, activate or supply background knowledge, while reading the story. The activity guide lists question to have the students discuss prior to reading the book. These questions will help them understand the story as they listen or read. 5y
