Green | Laura Vaccaro Seeger
post image

Green is a nonfiction picture book illustrated & written by Laura Vaccaro Seeger that teachers students different shades of green in nature, with cut-out shapes linking the different scenes. This Caldecott Award winner would best be taught through IR because students could compare different colors and what the colors represent to them as they read. #ucflae3414f17 http://www.theclassroombookshelf.com/2012/05/green/ (ways for colors to be taught)

hannahl ESOL: 4 because making connections to what the color green is for the children will make it easier for them to understand. (Example: green is a tree) UDL: 1.3- to provide visuals of what the color green is and for example you could show them what grass is and explain that's the color green. 5y

Wonder | Raquel J. Palacio
post image

Wonder is a realistic fiction novel written by Raquel S. Palacio & is a New York Times bestseller & Young Readers Choice Award book. The teaching strategy for this novel should be LC because every student can take away a different message from the book and I think it's really important for each group to talk about what the message in this story was. It is important for children to understand that it's bad to judge someone based on how they look.

hannahl The story is about a little boy named August, who is 10 years old, and has a rare medical face deformity. ESOL: 3 because positive thinking will help students understand what kindness really is.
