The City of Ember | Jeanne DuPrau
post image

Reunited and it feels so good! The City of Ember (SF, Mark Twain Award+more) by Jeanne DuPrau was the first book I fell in love with as a kid. I‘m so happy to have a brand new copy now and rediscover what I loved about it so much and seeing it through a teacher lens. #LAE3414sp19

cwright https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w84SfvCbfg4 Here‘s a YouTube video for educators on teaching symbolism. I would first start with an RA of a short text involving symbolism, model the strategy used in the video in an interactive way, then use this book as a PR and have each pair do the same thing and create a poster. ESOL 2, 8, 10, 30 UDL 8.3, 3.3, 1.1, 5.2 7mo
DrSpalding Cool video. Symbolism can be a challenging topic. Partner reading would work well! 7mo

You know the feeling when you discover that your childhood TV crush created the cutest illustrated novel ever? Just me? Rumple Buttercup (F) by Matthew Gray Gubler (of Criminal Minds fame) wrote this book that‘s great for late elementary and up and deals with the feeling of not belonging and discovering that everyone is weird and that‘s what‘s cool about being a person, or whatever Rumple is, even if you are friends with actual trash. #LAE3414sp19

Another | Christian Robinson

I can‘t just share a book with no pictures without sharing a book with no words. Another (SF) not written by anyone but illustrated by the wonderful Christian Robinson is the perfect way to spark any human‘s imagination without delving too deep into the intricacies of SF. #LAE3414sp19

The Book With No Pictures (NF, NYT Bestseller, Buzzfeed & Amazon Best Picture Book) by B.J. Novak — yes, Ryan from The Office — is a sort of anti-picture book that intentionally looks boring on the outside but is HILARIOUS as a RA because it is intended for an adult to make a fool of themselves in front of a child. #LAE3414sp19

cwright https://create.piktochart.com/output/37528494-knighted-rc This is a Piktochart I used for my seminar on the Responsive Classroom Model. While reading, I daydreamed of reading this between greeting and sharing of a morning meeting, either toward the beginning of school or the day of a big test, and then to have the sharing be that every student would make the funniest nonsense sound/sentence they could think of and have everyone repeat it.

I HAD to read the sequel, The Day the Crayons Came Home (F, Goodreads Choice Award) by Drew Daywalt and illustrated by Oliver Jeffers. I love how this follows the same letter-writing format, but follows the same bunch of crayons over a storyline. So I figured, why not have my students do it? #LAE3414sp19

cwright http://www.readwritethink.org/files/resources/printouts/narrative-pyramid.pdf After a RA, I would have mixed-level small groups write either as themselves or a related group of objects, animals, etc. to one recipient about a unified problem, filling out the pyramid together. Then, they would come up with three events leading up to the same conclusion. For each event, each student would write one letter. ESOL 2, 7, 16 UDL 7.1, 8.3, 3.2 (edited) 7mo
giont I need to read this! I loved the first book. I love your idea of having different groups write to each other. I feel like this would be so much fun for students, I‘m also curious as to what they come up with! I‘m gonna keep this idea in mind, thanks for sharing :) 7mo

Spoiler alert!! I‘m using this absolutely gorgeous and heartwarming book, Good Morning, Neighbor (F) written by my man Davide Cali and illustrated by Maria Dek for my ST. This is a beyond perfect book for a ST, but I‘m doing mine with a little twist — from a different perspective! I wanted to try to make it funny instead of cutesy, but it could go either way. #LAE3414sp19

cwright http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/multiple-perspect... This multi-session LP is a lesson on perspective that can be adapted for any grade. I adore the intro activity. I would start the day with an RA of the book as-is, then present it as my alt-perspective ST instead of the book listed. Cali‘s fractured fairy tales or I Forgot My Homework Because... series could be my added — 8mo
cwright — resources which could even make this part of an AS on my fav author. The coolest part of this LP is that it encourages students to create their own writing from alternate perspectives through research from multiple content areas, and ends with self-assessment. The ST alone employs UDL 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 2.1, 3.2, and 5.2, and ESOL 14, 15, 17, and 18. 8mo
kelseymccormick @cwright I love the resource you provided. I especially like at the end of the sessions that the students are asked to self reflect. What a good way to end a lesson! Great post! 8mo

Out of My Mind inspired me to pick up an old favorite of mine, A Mango-Shaped Space (RF, Schneider Family Book Award) by Wendy Mass because Melody‘s synesthesia in Out of My Mind reminded me of when I first learned about synesthesia in A Mango-Shaped Space! A must-read for fans of Out of My Mind. #LAE3414sp19

cwright http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/literature-circle... This is a resource from RWT on LCs. I think this would be an enjoyable choice for an LC, but if not, should still be in the classroom library as an IR!

Out of My Mind | Sharon M. Draper
post image

After hearing 10/10 reviews from another LC about Out of My Mind (NYT Bestseller, countless other awards, RF) by Sharon M. Draper, now one of my favorite authors, I was absolutely sold. Though an excellent choice for an LC, I found a lesson plan that could be utilized independently by students as a resource for a GR, or to guide conversation in small SR groups during rotations. #LAE3414sp19

cwright http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/analyzing-first-p... Depending on class needs, I‘m imagining using this multi-session LP as a resource for students during a GR as a whole-class lesson on perspective and social awareness, or to go about that same goal in tracking groups as an SR. 8mo
cwright Using this lesson would incorporate UDL 7.2, 8.3, 9.3, 1.1, 3.1, 3.2, 5.3 as a SR, and 6.3. It would also employ ESOL 2, 7, 8, 11, 16, 30, 36, 44, and 48. 8mo
Mmw2478 I know this is an amazing book and I can‘t wait to read. I ordered it on Amazon and will have it soon! This is a great book for the classroom. 8mo

Perhaps I wasn‘t the reason my doctor put The Day the Crayons Quit (F, Goodreads Choice Award Winner, NYT #1 Bestseller) in the lobby of my doctor‘s office, but I feel like maybe I was so I‘m Litsying about it. This hilarious book by Drew Drywalt/illustrated by Oliver Jeffers is recommended for PK-2, but I feel it should be required reading for all human beings. #LAE3414sp19

cwright https://assets.readbrightly.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/CrayonsGuide.pdf This is an awesome resource for teachers with a ton of ideas to use. When we read this in class, a lot of people had the idea to use this to introduce letter writing, which I love! Especially the idea for persuasive writing for older grades. My favorite one on here though is the Every Crayon Counts Campaign, but it should be carried out correctly of course! 8mo
KristenDuck Loved this book!! 8mo
cwright If we‘re talking about the Every Crayon Counts Campaign, that lesson plan following a RA would touch on UDL 7.1, 7.2, 8.3, 1.1, and 3.4 as well as ESOL 4, 11, 12, and 50. On the dress-up day, I would then incorporate a RT! 8mo

Snow White and the 77 Dwarfs (TL) by Davide Cali/Raphaelle Barbanegre is a book to be enjoyed at any age — wonderful to take home and read with loved ones. It would be a hilarious RA, on its own or to introduce the LP, and could be a part of a guided AS. It‘s almost as if I already have done an AS on him and created an infographic about it specifically intended for a rotation on an AS. The AS could also be part of leading into the LP. #LAE3414sp19

cwright http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/student-interactives/fractured... Here‘s the fun, funny, creative LP on fractured fairy tales. This lesson could very easily be used with this book and others like it – Davide Cali has written multiple (sounds like an AS?), and there are plenty others referenced in the LP. You‘ll touch on ESOL 4, 13, 14, and 16 & UDL 7.1, 8.2, 3.1, and 5.2. 8mo

SlappyWorld: Attack of the Jack (F) by R.L. a Goosebumps book, was… Well, a student I teach gives me his old books. His mom has him get rid of three before he gets a new one. He gave me only Goosebumps books. I thought it was very cute that he gave it to me, so I read so we could talk about. I had to laugh!

cwright http://www.readwritethink.org/classrcla-resources/lesson-plans/thrills-chills-us... This is based around a 6-8 RA that I feel could be used 2-5 and use ESOL 14 and/or 38 and UDL 7.1 and 7.3. 8mo
cwright However, even though everyone I knew in elementary school loved spooky sci-fi, I made the mistake of teaching a scary lesson about Lilith earlier this school year thinking they would love it and ended up having to cut it short and comfort two crying third graders who thought Lilith was hiding in their mirror, so maybe read the room and stick it in the library for an IR. 8mo

OK I‘M AWARE THAT I TALK A LOT ABOUT BOOKS BUT PLEASE BEAR WITH MY LARGE JEWISH EMOTIONS FOR THIS POST THANK YOU. So we all know this is Anne Frank‘s B. I‘m going to consider this an award winner for several reasons, though the diary itself did not literally receive an award, I feel that it wouldn‘t make sense – works based on it won many, though, and out of it came The Anne Frank Award, among others. Comments to follow. #LAE3414sp19

cwright Depending on the teacher‘s approach/background knowledge, it could be a historical AS, but like any AS, research should be monitored by the teacher. It could also be a GR, which I recommend. I don‘t understand why some places in the world do not teach about the Holocaust at all. I strongly believe that this book should be introduced in elementary. Not only is it NF unlike the usual Number the Stars (still worth a read), but Anne‘s — 8mo
cwright — perspective makes it more relatable and age-appropriate than many other NF pieces of Holocaust literature. The greater the connection to one‘s personal life, the more the lesson is absorbed, and wherever we can inspire a student to think about making actual change, we should go out of our way to. 8mo
cwright http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/blog-anne-frank-t... This lesson will pull from ESOL 3, 10, 11, 12, 32, and 48 and UDL 7.1, 8.3, 9.1, and 5.2. It essentially challenges the student to relate to Anne, but not in the insensitive way that many LPs about marginalized people‘s experiences (e.g. slavery) do. At the root, it compares the spread of information today to pre-Internet and 24-hour news coverage. 8mo
See All 8 Comments
cwright That can be done with or without information on Nazi propaganda, which may or may not be appropriate for the class needs. It ultimately, of course, relates literature to social studies, and in turn, relates Anne‘s motives to real life and their actual goals by challenging them to also write from the heart for an audience. 8mo
cwright Also depending on the class needs, the teacher could provide broad topics for the class to choose a more specific issue to write new information about weekly that could range from anything like tech in the classroom, standardized testing, or a relevant community issue. I would randomly assign students to read and comment on each other‘s blogs for the duration of the project. 8mo
cwright TL;DR: Holocaust curriculum needs to start early and be taught responsibly and in a way that students can relate to TODAY, especially with current events. The whole point of the “never again” message is to make sure that this never happens again, so don‘t let it. 8mo
Edenmonet This Anne Frank book looks great! I feel it‘s important for students to learn about children in history that made a big impact, especially someone like Anne Frank. I like how your lesson plan allows the students to view Anne Frank as an author and a historian. 7mo
DrSpalding Noted! Technically the holocaust should be touched upon in fifth grade utilizing quality children‘s literature like, as you mentioned Number the Stars and wonderful biographies like this. Another excellent resource and your passion for reading in general is inspiring. 7mo

Universe in 3-D | Linda C. Casterline

The Universe in 3D (NF) by L.C. Casterline has been a favorite for me since I got it as a gift in 4th grade, and I just shared it with a 3rd grader I‘m working with for my diagnostic reading class and he loved it too. It could be IR for anyone of any age. Classroom application in comments. #LAE3414sp19

cwright Depending on the level of background information or interest in the topic, most students who have at least learned about the moon landing will be able to read a passage or two, while others might want to delve deeper into learning about space and read more about what is pictured in each image or simply just look at the pictures through the built-in 3D glasses. The book can be a supplement to the LP or part of a very fun SR station. 8mo
cwright The lesson plan introduces primary grades to science vocabulary through reading and a virtual exploration, which ties into the beginning of the book. ESOL 12, 17, and 46 will be addressed and 1.3, 2.1, 2.5, and 3.1 will be addressed with it. http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/blast-vocabulary-... 8mo

Stella by Starlight | Sharon M. Draper

Stella by Starlight (HF) by Sharon M. Draper has been a NYT Best Seller and was also a 2016 Charlotte Huck Award Winner, and for good reason. I was really happy I chose this book for my personal LC in class and would consider applying that in the future. Classroom application in comments. #LAE3414sp19

cwright I think it could be introduced in 3rd grade but only as an RA. For example, reading sections every day during Black History Month to supplement that curriculum. In later grades, it could still be an RA, but also GR or even LC with set roles relevant to the historical element of the book. I think that depending on class needs, students may or may not be at a point where they could handle reading this independently. 8mo
cwright https://sharondraper.com/stella-common-core.pdf This is a lesson plan from the author‘s website with several strategies to deeply analyze the text and historical context that fall in line with CC. She clearly intended it for classroom use, as there are comprehension questions within the book at the end. The PDF could be a supplement to RA and GR. It employs ESOL 2, 4, 6,  and 29, and UDL 7.2 and 8.3. 8mo
Mmw2478 I just started this book. I like the resource you provided. 8mo

I‘m no American history buff, but The Truth (and Myths) About American Heroes by L.A. Peacock (NF) made learning about history actually fun. Since it‘s so broad and doesn‘t go very in-depth, it wouldn‘t make sense to use it for a lesson, even though the glossary in the back has some great vocabulary words. It would be best as an IR, particularly as a recommendation to the student who is interested in history! #LAE3414sp2019

cwright This lesson plan is for high school, but I fully believe it could be properly translated into an elementary school setting (http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/blind-date-with-b...). This book touches on ESOL 4 and 15 and possibly UDL 3.1 and 2.1, and the lesson idea touches on ESOL 2, 5, and 10 and UDL 9.1. 9mo

Pickpick

The Word Collector (RF, NYT Best Seller) written and illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds is newly one of my favorite books. Like I‘ll be practicing tomorrow, this book would be best as a RA at any elementary grade level, particularly with all the new vocabulary this book has to offer, but especially because each age will have their own impressions of what happened to Jerome, what he learned, and how he dealt with it. #LAE3414sp19

cwright After going over vocabulary from the book (ESOL 49), this classroom activity (https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/blog-posts/scholasticcom-editors/2018-2019/c...) allows students to become their own word collectors!

Love That Dog by Sharon Creech (P, DCF Children‘s Book Award winner) is a favorite of mine that I‘ve kept since childhood and a must-read for everyone. It‘s especially important for students with low self-efficacy to read the story of someone they can relate to finding a creative outlet through writing and learning to embrace it. It‘s for this reason, among others, that I think this book would work best as a SR to promote discussion. #LAE3414sp19

cwright It‘s discussions and poetry studies surrounding this book like the ones in this lesson plan (https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/love-dog-discu...) that got me into writing in the first place, hence the picture. This type of discussion touches on UDL 8.3, 9.1, 3.1, 3.2, and 3.3, and ESOL 2, 6, 11, and 44. 9mo

Lazy Tommy Pumpkinhead | William Pne Du Bois
post image

While Lazy Tommy Pumpkinhead (F) didn‘t receive any awards, Du Bois won one Newbery award and almost two Caldecott awards — so you know you‘re in for a treat here. The problem? It‘s out of print! This book was my mom‘s favorite as a kid, and she got it for me on eBay a couple of years ago, but not for the $5,001 it‘s going for on Amazon right now. I just wish I had my own machines getting my sriracha hearts and I ready this morning. #LAE3414sp19

cwright This book isn‘t as versatile in the classroom as Dingoes at Dinnertime from my last post, but it would be a blast to use for an RA. The words are funny and easy to dramatize and speed up and slow down, the pictures are hilarious to match, and the concept rings true 53 years later — possibly more now. This type of dramatic reading touches on UDL Principles 3.2 and 3.3, and the slower parts and repetitive nature touch on ESOL 14. 9mo
cwright This link right from Scholastic on how to make RAs fun is something that I just referenced when preparing for my TeachLive RA assignment — I‘ll be bringing in Lazy Tommy as a guest next week to a first grade classroom!

This activist and author, Mary Pope Osborne, along with her illustrator, Sal Murdocca, are our tour guides for an adventure every time they create a book. The dingoes joined me at dinnertime tonight thanks to a reread of my favorite Magic Treehouse book (F) from childhood! I was able to relive the warm feeling I got from the joey jumping into the backpack and my wanderlust for Australia. Lesson idea and UDL principle in comments.
