What a wild F story about two friends and the world they discover in the woods! I would use LCs for this book and instruct the students to work together in the lesson.

The EL strategy I would use is 2, promoting cooperation in small groups for discussion

This HF story about an Irish mill girl who just moved to America is eye opening and would make a great Shared Reading story. Tie it in to history or geography! Discussions in the classroom will thrive from this story!

Silly, book of P to ease students into lessons on reading and writing poetry! PR is my chosen teaching strategy. Students can work together to create their own poems.
Here are some resources-

The Great Gilly Hopkins | Katherine Paterson
post image

An enticing RF, Newbery Award winning story about life in foster care and what it‘s like in the mind of a young, feisty girl determined to get what she wants. LC is my chosen teaching strategy because I want students to discuss the choices Gilly makes. “Would you ever do that? Why or why not?” Here are some lessons you could have students do together in their LCs-

We follow Karana through her dangerous survival on the Island of Blue Dolphins in this Newbery Award winning, RF novel. This book would be great to Read Aloud in a secondary classroom. Paired with some *lesson plans, let your students dive in to Scott O‘Dell‘s story slowly as you read 1-2 chapters a day.

An iconic RF, Newbery Award winning story, great for *Guided Reading in your secondary classroom. Let students follow along with you as the story unfolds. I‘ll never forget the pet shop in this story, the church, or her dad.

The One and Only Ivan | Katherine Applegate

My favorite book I‘ve read this year, it is a F, Newbery award winning story about Ivan the Silverback Gorilla‘s sadness and the friends he‘s made while living in a shopping mall. I believe using this as an Independent Reading book would be best in my secondary classroom. Here is a great variety of lesson plans you can use, including an art lesson!

The F story we all know and love by Marcus Pfister won the Abby Children‘s Award in 1994. This story would be best used with Reader‘s Theatre I think! Adding crafts* and lessons in character, we can teach how sharing is caring.

JocelynNolton I haven't read this book yet but it's definitely on my list. MLK Jr. is such an important part of our history and I think students should read about him and learn about all the things that he's done in his lifetime. Also loved your resource for the book. 2y

Hatchet | Gary Paulsen
post image

This Newbery award winning RF novel, is one of the best adventure stories I‘ve read; it would make a great LC book for secondary students. (The details of how the pilot died horrified me and now I‘m afraid of having a heart attack at anytime.) Scholastic has lesson plans to help guide your usage of this book in the classroom!

kenyanellie I will always remember reading Hatchet! It wasn‘t my cup of tea but I definitely think it is an essential in every classroom library! Scholastic is such a wonderful resource! (edited) 2y
AshleyAA I remember when I had to read Hatchet in one of my classes. I loved it! The teacher would read aloud and we were expected to follow along and answer simple questions, but I love that the lesson plan you provided encourages students to predict and discuss (in groups) the things that are occurring as they are reading, wish my teacher would‘ve incorporated group discussions. 2y
