One Boy a RF, Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor winner would be a really good text for an RA. It‘s a counting book about a boy. The illustrations are really interactive and captivating to engage young learners. UDL principle 2.3 Decoding of text & mathematical notation & ESOL 46 hands-on-activities align with teaching/ reading the book. https://www.teachingbooks.net/tb.cgi?aid=6860&a2=1 provides extension for the RA to assess comprehension. #LAE3414sp19

This RF book would be good for a RT for the message of forgiveness it conveys. It is about a girl and how she manages to start her new fresh day with different intentions. This could be used in the classroom to teach students to read beyond the text and look at the bigger picture. #LAE3414sp19

Zmohammad The UDL strategy 8.4 Increase mastery-oriented feedback and ESOL 6 Continually monitor students‘ comprehension align with the RT by promoting comprehension and elaboration of the text. http://top100childrensbooks.weebly.com/blog/melenas-jubilee-the-story-of-a-fresh... this website provides the break down of the authors point of view and would be a good resource to review after the RT.

Bathtub Science is a great NF that provides experiments for students to conduct in their own bathtub and would be great for an IR. This is beneficial in the classroom because it provides varying content to engage our students. #LAE3414sp19

Zmohammad UDL strategy 2.5 Illustrate through multiple media and ESOL 39 have students prepare collections of science objects would be fantastic for this book because they can go through the process without being in an actual bathtub. http://www.inlieuofpreschool.com/science-experiments-in-the-bathtub/ provides images and instructions without the need for a physical setting. 5mo

Dr. Seuss has this fantastic (P) book to use in a CR. This book could be used in the classroom to expose P to young students.

This RF, is a New York Times Best Seller, and it is about a girl who has Autism. Her best friend gets stung by a jellyfish and dies. She goes through a whirlwind of emotions to get the answers she is searching for. This book can be used in the classroom as a LC so that students can discuss and engage with each other #LAE3414sp19

SofiaRoselli This seems like such a great emotional book. Students would benefit greatly from reading books from children with autisms‘ perspective. I definitely have to read this! 5mo
Zmohammad The UDL strategy 3.2 highlighting patterns and bi ideas would be great for this because you can discuss the different story aspects while you read.

This F Caldecott Honor book would be great for a RA. It‘s about a grandmother with many grandkids who just wants to be left alone so that she can knit sweaters for her grandkids. She travels far to get her peace and quite time so that she can finish knitting the sweaters. This book can be used to benefit students by having them learn story structure.
#LAE3414sp19

Zmohammad https://www.teachingbooks.net/tb.cgi?aid=16330 this website includes interviews and read aloud with the author and I think this is a fantastic resource that supports the RA. Students can start to learn about the author by interacting with the videos. 6mo
Zmohammad UDL strategy 2.1 (clarify vocabulary and symbols) and ESOL strategy 1 (teach questioning for clarification) would be suitable for students to learn story structure, vocabulary, and engage in an interactive RA due to the book being repetitive throughout the story. 6mo
DrSpalding The image on the front cover shows why this book one and award for its illustrations. Excellent alignment and explanation of your principles and strategies. Interactive read aloud would work well! 6mo

Drummer Hoff | Barbara Emberley

Drummer Hoff adapted by Barbara Emberley and illustrated by Ed Emberley, is a TL that won The Caldecott Medal 🎖 and would be great for S. The book could be used in the classroom to benefit students because it‘s a fun engaging read that introduces them to poetry. The book consists of rhyming words and tells a story about how a cannon is built. It starts off with a drummer and ends with a general giving the order to fire the cannon.
#LAE3414sp19

Zmohammad https://www.rif.org/literacy-central/book/drummer-hoff This website provides an extension for after the S where students can engage with the story and begin to make connections for the words that rhyme. UDL strategy 2.2 (clarifying structure) and ESOL strategy 20 (listing important words and phrases on the board prior to presenting) would be great to introduce the students to the content before S. 6mo
DrSpalding Many of your peers have used reading is fundamental as a resource. Excellent job identifying strategy number 20 listing important words and phrases. Vocabulary is vital to student comprehension. 6mo

#LAE3414sp19

Zmohammad UDL strategy 9.3 (developing self-assessment and reflection) and ESOL strategy 16 ( integrate reading, speaking, writing activities, and listening) align with the lesson plan and TA strategy to make the students engage with each other for ideas, so that they can show their understanding by writing about their own journey. 6mo

Have you ever been bullied for things out of your control? Lila and the Crow is a RF book about how one young girl learns to embrace her uniqueness despite what her bully thinks, and I believe it would be an amazing book to use in the classroom for a RT. This can be used in the classroom to benefit students by showing them different type of texts they can relate to which should encourage them to read and connect to text more.
