Where the Wild Things Are | Maurice Sendak
post image
Mehso-so

This picture book and MF by Maurice Sendak is definitely a classic. In my opinion, I was never a fan growing up, I personally found the story creepy. Looking at the story now I appreciate the art and look of darkness in the book, but this would be a fun RT to have the kids dress up. The UDL I would align for this book is 1.2 to offer a new way to show a book and the ESOL strategy I would refer to is 18 to show TPR. #UCFLAE3414F19

haleyklein Here is a cute reader theater performed by a teacher and her students! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p6J892bV_V0 1mo
AleciaM Love this book. Perfect fit with your ULD. 1mo
DrSpalding This does make an excellent readers theater! I have seen this. Nice alignment here. 2w

The Hate U Give | Angela Thomas

Pickpick

This was a RF that just leaves you speechless. I highly recommend this book to all ages and will definitely incorporate this as a LC or even RA in my future upper-level classrooms. The UDL I would align it to is 3.3 with processing information, and the ESOL strategy is 1 to encourage the questioning. #UCFLAE3414F19

haleyklein Here is a link with not only great resources for this book but also many more for Civil Rights month! This link offers great topic pints depending on which grade for the book! http://www.carolhurst.com/titles/laststoponmarket.html 1mo

Last Stop on Market Street is such a great book for children. Not only is it a great diverse RF to have in your classroom library but it also teaches a great lesson of kindness and giving. I would use this in a RA or RT and I would align the UDL 6.3 for their understanding and ESOL strategy 3 for self discussion after. #UCFLAE3414F19

The One and Only Ivan | Katherine Applegate
post image
Pickpick

I can definitely say that the One and Only Ivan was my favorite Katherine Applegate RF novel! I really enjoyed this book, even with its very sad moments the turn arounds and uplifting moments kept you going! The UDL I would use for this novel is 3.2 to have the students get the big picture and for ESOL Strategy I would align with 4 to see their knowledge of elephants and the wild. #UCFLAE3414F19

haleyklein Here is a great activity to help students gather the main idea and key details! This link has discussion questions https://bookunitsteacher.com/wp/?p=5932 1mo
AlyssaB I can‘t wait to see the movie to this book 1mo
JRone I think the website you chose is awesome. I love all the activities it has. The One and Only Ivan was also my favorite of Katherine Applegate's books I've read so far. The book was very entertaining and kept me engaged to where I couldn't put it down. 1mo

Wishtree | Katherine Applegate

This was a very interesting MF novel by Katherine Appelgate. It not only teaches a lot of great and valuable lessons but I would definitely use this as a LC. The UDL I would use towards this is 7.2 by giving on-topic questions for the groups to discuss. The ESOL strategies I would reference is 1 to see that questions are being asked event to our peers for understanding. #UCFLAE3414F19

Through My Eyes | Ruby Bridges
post image
Pickpick

This B was such a powerful children's book. I will definitely be implementing this into my future classroom. This would be great for younger ages to start on a literature circle or to have as a read-aloud allowing you the teacher to ask structured questions. The UDL is 3.1, I would do more than read this book, I would also go further and do an author study. The ESOL strategy I would reference is 9 to incorporate not taking. #UCFLAE3414F19

KristenScala I love biography books and I think they‘re very important for students to utilize and learn from. I think it‘s a great idea to do an authors study on Ruby Bridges! 1mo
DrSpalding You don‘t see why this book is powerful. Remember that your post should be concise yet share knowledge of the book. 2w

In the book of lots of P you will come across a poem titled “Halfway Down“ this is such a great poem to use to introduce not only an author study but also poems by A.A. Milne in general. I have grown up reading his children's poems and have enjoyed them so I would love to bring some of them into my classroom one day as well. The UDL I would use towards this is 1.3 because of how unique his poems are on paper. #UCFLAE3414F19

haleyklein The ESOL strategy I would reference is 50 to incorporate different ways of comprehension! 1mo
DrSpalding This is a bit better! Keep your passion for poetry and share it with students. 2w

This P by Clement Moore is a great way to introduce poems especially if it is around the holidays. I would implement this as a RA or CR in my classroom. The UDL 2.2 in order to better clarify how to read this poem fluently. The ESOL strategy I would focus on is 8 to go along with the UDL in understanding how to read a poem with the pauses and flow. #UCFLAE3414F19

Rumpelstiltskin | The Brothers Grimm
post image
Pickpick

Rumpelstiltskin is such an amazing TL to always have in the classroom. Its a great example for the genre itself as well. This version was retold by Peter Clover, its the version I've had since I can remember! The UDL 7.1 would help to make the focus on recruiting interest in a different genre. I would also align ESOL strategy 12 in helping to gain the whole idea of this style writing and storytelling. #UCFLAE3414F19

Big Words for Little People | Jamie Lee Curtis

Big Words for Little People by Jamia Lee Curtis is such a fun RF to do a RA in your classroom with. Not only does this book also show a hint of diversity but it also introduces new big unknown words. UDL 2.1 would be great to focus on the vocabulary. ESOL strategies 20 to highlight the new vocabulary and make sure they are able to understand the new words and what they mean clearly! #UCFLAE3414F19

Hurricane Heroes in Texas | Mary Pope Osborne

I love these Fiction books by Mary Pope Osborne! They are so much fun and take you into another universe of imagination! I would use this book as a RA and make great conversation surrounding the class! #UCFLAE3414f19

kradebaugh This is a great book. I think a read aloud would be awesome on this. There are so many questions that you could ask there are discussions that could be had. You might could even do a readers theater with this book. 2mo
haleyklein I would use this guided lesson plan to allow for a full effect of grasping the book and characters through out! I would also apply for my UDL 5.2 and focus on expression and communication!

Wow this SF was such a hit!! I had previously watched the movie but the book is definitely so much better! A Wrinkle in Time by L‘Engle takes you on an adventure through time and space with Meg and her friends and sibling! This book would be great for a RA and would allow for the whole class to go on this adventure page by page! #UCFLAE3414F19

haleyklein I found these really fun printable‘s that can be used for classroom engagement https://www.madeleinelengle.com/for-educators/wrinkle-in-time-teacher-resources/ the UDL I would apply towards this is 8.3 and 1.3. My ESOL strategies are 29 &46 2mo

The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind | William Kamkwamba, Bryan Mealer

The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind by William Kamkwamba was what drove my heart to want to teach abroad. This novel will make you laugh, cry and have hope. This story is about a boy who over comes challenges and makes a huge environmentally impact on his town which is heard about all over the globe. I highly recommend this Biography (B). #UCFLAE3414F19

haleyklein This is a great book for AS due to this whole story being about the author himself!Attached is a lesson plan to illustrated how we can all dive deep in this story and into Williams life! https://study.com/academy/lesson/the-boy-who-harnessed-the-wind-lesson-plan.html. The UDL that aligns are 3.1 & 6.3 these both illicit further understanding through out the lesson. 2mo

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein is such an infamous book for teaching love and the difference between wants and needs. This is a great book for a RA which gives the teacher the chance to direct conversation an thinking while reading along. Attached are free printable so found that can also be done while reading! https://www.rif.org/literacy-central/book/giving-tree. #UCFLAE3414F19

haleyklein A great UDL that aligns is 1.1 which would be shown through the worksheet provided to display understanding of information through unique ways! For the EL alignments I would keep aligned with 13 which provides review activities through out the read aloud! 2mo

This book would be GREAT for a RT! I don‘t have a lib to provide but I have from my own experience how fun yo I can preform this book! This is great to use as an introduction to a history lesson or simply a fun way to still incorporate new information! #UCFLAE3414F19

haleyklein A UDL to apply for this would be 7.3 & 1.1 to allow students to see a book shown in a fun and new way to keep interest! For an EL strategy we can apply 12, 17 & 24 these all can incorporate the further learning they will gain through hearing and seeing expression. By doing a RT we as teachers can bring the learning materials to life! 2mo
Camrynm I loved your readers theatre with this book! I learned a lot from reading it. Great post! 2mo

haleyklein This book would be good great for a LC. It will bring opportunities for kids to dig deep in topics about the book as well as gain a new perspective of everything around them! A great LC tool is this link to all things that make an LC thrive! It breaks it up in sessions and tools for success for each section! http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/literature-circle... 2mo
haleyklein For this novel the UDL‘s that align are; 5.2, 3.3 & 8.3 which all allow for opportunities to express but also stay guided. The EL strategies are 32, 37 & 44 these all express the student to use oral language as well as be in pairs. The pairs will help to guide and support along with the teacher providing extra support if needed! 2mo
AleciaM Such a great book that deals with diversity. They is so many diverse children in the schools today, and it's great to see more books that talk about it. 2mo

Wonder | R. J. Palacio

Wonder a RF novel by R.J. Palacio is great for the upper elementary level students. Auggie takes us into a world of learning self confidence, acceptance and kindness. The main character, Auggie has a face deformity which is making starting middle school a roller coaster of a ride. He has been used to home school so this is a huge transition! #UCFLAE3414F19

haleyklein This is a great novel for IR it allows for kids to gain a new mindset in its ideas of the classroom time. Along with having it as an independent read provided is a URL of handouts the students can fill out while reading. This is also great for assessing the child‘s understanding https://wonderthebook.com/assets/downloadables/Wonder_EG_2014_WEB_2.pdf. 2mo
haleyklein The UDL that aligns with this are 3.3 & 9.3 while providing worksheets to keep the students comprehension up to tabs as well as showing them self regulation. EL 17, 29 & 30 these will all help provide extra support due to this being an IR. I would also help alongside to give extra time for the student to also have a chance to read along side me. 2mo
