The Very Hungry Cater Pillar, a RF picture book written and illustrated by Eric Carle, would be a great story to use for AS. Eric Carle is very well known for his picture books and students should definitely be made aware of who he is! (Cont.) #ucflae3414su19

DeannaP I have never heard of this book before this class but it seems so common! I will definitely be checking it out soon! I loved your resource as well! I think making the mural with the class would be such an amazing activity! 4mo
DrSpalding Now that you have seen Carly share this as a storytelling, you know it makes for an excellent storytelling option. This would also be a wonderful read aloud at the beginning of the school year. Your resource is one of my absolute favorites! I follow them on social media and continue to learn a great deal from their posts. 4mo

LibrarianRyan @galacticbees curious if you could explain the hash tag. I went looking at older posts and didn't see an explanation. So I'm stumped. I'm curious because there are a few different groups reading lots of picture books (which I love), and I was curious why. 4mo
galacticbees @LibrarianRyan Hello! Our UCF college class is doing a project where we post 20 different books on our Litsy accounts with descriptions and ways to utilize them in our future classrooms! The hashtag is so our professor and classmates can easily find our posts :) 4mo
LibrarianRyan @galacticbees ahhhhhh. That is awesome that your class is posting here and not like twitter or insta. . Very cool. 4mo
DrSpalding You are correct that this book would be an excellent read during women‘s history month. Thank you for explaining to other Litsy members about our work! It is forward thinking to use social media like this for an assignment like this. We have been well received!❤️😀 4mo

The Hunger Games | Suzanne Collins

The Hunger Games, a SF trilogy, is a series of novels written by Suzanne Collins. These books are so interesting and allow students to become immersed in a world they could only have imagined. The Hunger Games is a great story that facilitates a lot of great lessons. I think this book would be best read as IR. (Cont.) #ucflae3414su19

DrSpalding While not for young children, as we discussed in class many upper elementary children have read this trilogy and/or seen the movies. It‘s important to know what students are reading and seeing! As a teacher, I would not use this until middle or high school. 4mo
