Actual Size | Steve Jenkins

This amazing NF title is a picture book showing the actual size of all types of animals! No kidding! The pages fold out to show the mouth of a crocodile or the page is one giant eye of a squid! Each page has a short paragraph with size and type of animal information. This would be a great book for partner reading. Students can take turns reading a page and then do an activity from this resource link, teaching measurement in a group setting.

This adorable SF picture book tells the tale in the moon‘s perspective. Moon wants to have visitors but has to wait a very long time till Apollo 11. The moon watches the humans on earth as they invent was to travel but still not visit the moon. This book has a lot of knowledge about space exploration, scientists, and inventors of of planet. This book would be great as a storytelling to share with students how we made it to the moon.

A Stonewall Book Award winner, this MF is a wonderful tale of a little boy who wants to become a mermaid. With the help of his grandmother, he is able to become a mermaid and join the other mermaids in a huge parade. This book is a metaphor for being transgender. This book is best done as a RA to help answer the questions that most students will have and to help them receive the central message better.

This Picture book is a phenomenal poem about black history from the beginning to now. The beautiful artwork depicts the dreamers and the doers. The book does talk about black lives matter and Trayvon Martin making this a very emotional and moving piece of poetry.

This wonderful biography is about 52 women who made a tremendous impact on our world. Women like Sophie Blanchard and Kate Warne are given brief biographies of their amazing contributions to our world. This book can be used for DR as your students reenact a famous women‘s biography from the book. Students can dress up and act out their lives. Use this lesson plan to teach students acrostic poems and write one using a biography.

Estradan Having the students join in a DR is such a cool and fun way for kids to learn about these great women in society. I really like this book because growing up I didn‘t hear much about famous women in history, so this is something I‘d love to include in my class library. The acrostic poem can also be a great assignment the kids can do for a women‘s name. 4mo
DrSpalding I love the idea of creating acrostic poems for famous individuals and I also like the strategy of dramatic reenactment. Excellent post. 4mo

MeganKlein @Kcompton2912, this book sounds amazing! I would love to read this just for my own enjoyment & curiosity. Many students probably don't know what arthritis is, but I'm sure this book does a great job at explaining to students in language that is understandable to them. It's important for students to be informed about various disabilities and medical conditions because it promotes acceptance and tolerance of others who are unique in their own ways 4mo
