There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Turkey is a TL PB written by Lucille Colandro and illustrated by Jared Lee that I would use as a RA. I labeled this book as TL because I know it‘s a spin on the classic tale “There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly” which was a favorite of mine when I was younger. This one is obviously more seasonal. This is just a crazy, fun book that kids will have a good time listening to.

jasminep This link https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/There-was-an-Old-Lady-Who-Swallowed-... will take you to a nice sequencing activity for the class. I would use UDL 2.2 Clarify syntax and structure because the book would be read in a sing songy voice. 2y
jasminep I would use ESOL strategy 30 which is encourage the use of diagrams and drawings as aids to identify concepts and seeing relationships. I think I  could definitely work that into this story to help the students get a better understanding.

EricaG This looks like such a fun book to read before Thanksgiving break! I love the sequencing activity you included too. 2y
DrSpalding Your resource is visually appealing. Obviously this could help with creating an excellent storytelling. The resource could also be used during direct instruction after a read aloud or could be placed in a literacy station. Nice selection. 2y

Junie B. Jones: Boss of Lunch is a RF novel written by Barbara Park and illustrated by Denis Brunkus. Junie B. Jones was one of my favorite series when I was a child so I had to do a post on one. I would use this book for the children to IR. The series is from the hilarious perspective of a little girl named Junie B. Jones and it follows her school and home life. It‘s a great book for the classroom because it‘ll amuse anyone.

jasminep This link https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Junie-B-Jones-First-Grader-Boss-of-L... is a link to a comprehension packet for the book. I would use UDL 3.3 which is Guide information processing, visualization, and manipulation because I think that the comprehension packet would be very helpful with that.  2y
jasminep I would use ESOL strategy 6 which is continually monitor students‘ comprehension. The comprehension packet would definitely be a good way to  monitor that.

Falling Up is a P PB written and illustrated by Shel Silverstein. This book is a collection of poems for kids so I would probably use it for PR. I think reading these poems with a partner would be more fun for the kids. This link http://www.shelsilverstein.com/learning/ takes you to a bunch of learning resources for all of his books.

jasminep The UDL I would use is 2.2 which is clarify syntax and structure because those are very important in poetry. The ESOL strategy I would use is 2 because since I‘m doing PR it would promote cooperation. #UCFLAE3414F17 2y
CaseyL Silverstein‘s poems are fun and relatable for young children! I own three of his books and I‘ve been reading them since I was in elementary school. They‘re always a good brain break for students. I also like that you chose to use a partner read for this book since reading aloud with expression is important for students to hear and practice. 2y
DrSpalding Using the authors site is wise. A little more information regarding the anthology in your post would be helpful. 2y

The True Story of the Three Little Pigs is a TL PG written and illustrated by Jon Scieszka. This was one of my favorite books as a child so I had to do a post on it. I would definitely use this book for a RA. The story is a parody of the three little pigs and in the story the wolf is telling us how he became “big and bad”. This book would definitely be a good story to discuss point of views.

jasminep This link https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/true-story-3-l... is to a free scholastic plan for the story. For this story I think I would use UDL 3.1 Activate or supply background knowledge because the students will probably have a lot of knowledge on this story. 2y
jasminep I would use ESOL strategy 20 which is list the most important words and phrases you use or plan to use in a presentation on a transparency or on the chalkboard because lower grade levels might not know some words.
2y
EricaG I love this book, it‘s such a fun take on the three little pigs! This is definitely a great book to teach point of view with! 2y
DrSpalding You saw that this is an excellent selection for storytelling and of course read aloud. Your extension activity is a quality lesson plan. 2y

Pete the Cat I Love My White Shoes | Eric Litwin, James Dean
post image
Pickpick

Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes is a F PB writer by Eric Litwin and illustrated by James Dean. Pete the Cat is an entire series that is very popular but this specific book focuses on Pete and his brand new white shoes. As Pete steps into different things his shoes change color but his outlook doesn‘t. This book would be a good addition in the classroom because it teaches color and it includes the positive outlook that Pete is known for.

jasminep This link https://www.prekinders.com/pete-the-cat-book-connection-activity/ has activities for small groups and large groups that will teach the kids things that I mentioned earlier. The UDL I would use is 3.2 which is Highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships.
The book is very repetitive so it‘d be easy to highlight the big ideas and patterns.
2y
jasminep The ESOL strategy I would use is 24 which is Incorporate the culture and the language of second language learners in your curriculum. It is very easy to translate the colors that the book talks about so they ELL‘s will have a better understanding.

The Three Pigs | David Wiesner
post image
Pickpick

The Three Pigs is a Caldecott winning PB written and illustrated by David Weisner. The story is TL that I would RA to the class. This book is a twist on the classic book about the three pigs because in this story they step out of their tales and end up in other familiar classics.

jasminep This link https://www.teachingbooks.net/content/Wiesner_activity_guide.pdf will take you to a pdf that has activities and discussion questions for a lot of Weisner‘s stories. I would use UDL 4.1 which is vary the methods for response and navigation so that if I used the discussions from the link we could work on that. 2y
jasminep I would use ESOL strategy 1 which is Teach questioning for clarification so that if the students had any questions through out the story or discussion they could ask. #UCFLAE3414F17 2y
DrSpalding A little more detail in your summary would be helpful. This is a very different version of the classic tale. This variant used along with your guide would be a great part of a unit. 2y

My Teacher is a Monster is a PB written and illustrated by Peter Brown. Even though this story includes illustrations of a monster I believe it is RF because the illustration of the monster is just a metaphor. I would use this book for S. The book is about a kid who thinks his teacher is a monster until one day he interacts with her in public and realizes that teachers are just people too.

jasminep This link http://www.peterbrownstudio.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/TeacherMons... takes you to a pdf with discussion questions, group activities, and other activities for students. I would use UDL 7.2 which is optimize relevance, value, and authenticity because this story is already super relevant and relatable. 2y
jasminep I would use ESOL strategy 46 which is Use discovery learning activities (hands-on-activities) because there are a lot of hands on activities that the link I provided discusses.

Wonder. R.J. Palacio | R J Palacio

Wonder is a RF novel written by Raquel J. Palacio. This story is a New York Times best seller and has a movie coming out tomorrow! I would use this book in a literature circle because I think this book covers a lot of topics that should be covered in classrooms. The story is about a boy who was born with a facial difference and he‘s finally going to a mainstream school.

jasminep This link https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/wonder-by-rj-palacio-whole-class-reading-u... is to a website that has up to six weeks‘ worth of reading lessons for the story. I would use UDL 1.1 which is offer ways of customizing the display of information and I could show scenes from the movie. 2y
jasminep I could use ESOL strategy 45 which is use Venn diagrams to contrast and compare activities so that the students could compare the book and the movie. #UCFLAE3414F17 2y
AJones Nice post! 😉 LC would work perfectly in upper elementary grades or higher. My son‘s middle school adopted “Wonder” as their school-wide novel. He has read it before me; twice. ❤️📚This book is definitely a page turner. Jack Will just punched Julian for his rude comment. I can‘t wait to read more. Back to the book. . .I will post more once I complete it. #ucflae3414f17 #WONDER (edited) 2y

The Tale of Desperaux is a F novel written by Kate DiCamillo. It is a Newbery award winner and I would probably do an IR so that the students could read the novel at their own pace. The story is about a mouse who is tryring to save a princess from a bunch of rats. My teacher read this book aloud when I was in elementary school and it is definitely one of my favorites.

jasminep This link http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/tale-despereaux-f... will take you to the standards that you can use with the book and a lot of different resources for your classroom. I would use UDL 1.1 Offer ways of customizing the display of information so that the students can learn better. 2y
jasminep And I would use ESOL strategy 20 which is list the most important words and phrases you use or plan to use in a presentation on a transparency or on the chalkboard because their might be some vocabulary that some of the students don‘t know.

Waiting | Kevin Henkes

Waiting is a F PB written and illustrated by Kevin Henkes who we discussed a lot in class. This is one of his newer stories. This story won both a Caldecott award as well as a Geisel which says a lot. I would use this book in an AS since Henkes has so many great books. The book is about these toys who sit on a windowsill and they‘re all waiting for something amazing.

jasminep This book would be great in a classroom because it is a sweet story and it could also help the kids learn patience.
This link ‪https://www.teachingbooks.net/tb.cgi?a=1&tid=45185‬   takes you to a website with a lot of information about the author which would be helpful in doing an AS. The UDL I would use is 2.2 clarify syntax and structure because that could be helpful to some students.

jasminep I️ would use ESOL strategy 17 which is provide contextual support through audio visuals, models, demonstrations, realia, body language and facial expressions if I was using this book for a RA. #UCFLAE3414F17 2y

Charlotte's Web | E. B. White

Charlotte‘s Web is an award-winning F novel. The story was written by E.B. White and illustrated by Garth Williams. This novel won the Newbery award and I would probably assign this book for independent reading. This link https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/unit-plans/teaching-content/charlottes-web-t...

jasminep is a link to a Scholastic teaching guide for the story that includes lesson plans and other activities. I would use UDL 2.5 which is illustrate through multiple media because I could show them the movie after they read the book which is what I did in third grade. The ESOL strategy that I would use is 29 which is offer a variety of reference materials at the students‘ instructional level for independent use. 2y
jasminep The scholastic lesson plan has a lot of good material and the movie that I mentioned earlier would also be a good reference. #UCFLAE3414F17 2y
DrSpalding You need to summarize the book a bit more. I‘m sure you read it but I can‘t truly tell from this post. Your resource is excellent and obviously this book could be used in many ways. I agree with watching one of the many movies after reading the text. Some teachers choose to watch the movie first to inspire the students to read the story. Many students have been inspired to read Wonder now that they have seen the movie. 2y

The Story of Ruby Bridges is a NF PB about Ruby Bridges. The story is written by Robert Coles and illustrated George Ford. I would use it in a LC so that the class could discuss their emotions about the story. The book is about Ruby Bridges who was a six-year-old African American who faced many struggles as she attended an all-white school.

jasminep This link
https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/collections/teaching-content/ruby-bridges-si... is a Scholastic link to lesson plans and activities that go along with the book. The UDL 3.1 activate or supply background knowledge would be a good choice because the kids would have to learn what is going on during this time period to understand.

jasminep The ESOL 4 strategy which is link lesson topic to students‘ prior knowledge would be a good choice because it goes with the UDL. #UCFLAE3414F17 2y

Divergent is a SF novel written by Veronica Roth. I would use this book to IR which is how I read it as a sophomore and I loved it. This book would definitely be for the higher up primary kids but it is one of my favorite books. The story is about a girl that lives in this dystopian society and she has to find herself and ends up learning a lot about the world she lives in. It is the first book in the trilogy so there‘s a lot more to it.

jasminep This link http://gthompsonportfolio.weebly.com/divergent-unit.html has plans for a whole unit covering this story. I would use UDL 2.1 which is clarify vocabulary and symbols because there is definitely a lot of words that even I had to look up. Which is also why I would choose 2y
jasminep ESOL strategy 23which is structure advance organizers consisting for new terminology that
learners will encounter in the new lesson vocabulary to be reviewed.

Josephine is a B award winning PB. This story won the Coretta Scott King Award and is written by Patricia Hruby Powell and illustrated by Christian Robinson. I could use this book for SR because the book is probably too lengthy for a RA. The story is a great biography about ‪Josephine Baker‬ and her struggles as well as achievements.

jasminep It would definitely be a great addition in the classroom because it shows overcoming obstacles and following your dreams.

This link http://castle.eiu.edu/~reading/Josehpine.pdf goes to a PDF that includes some standards and a lesson plan that goes along with the story. I would use UDL 2.5 which is illustrate through multiple media and probably show videos of ‪Josephine Baker‬ dancing in real life.
2y
jasminep I would also use ESOL strategy 13 which is use preview/review activities. I would find out what they know about Josephine and her time period before and find out what they learned after. #UCFLAE3414F17 2y

The Day the Crayons Came Home is a sequel to The Day the Crayons Quit. It is a F PB written and illustrated by Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers that I would use as a RA. This book was definitely just as fun as the first one and I think it would be a great book to have in the classroom. I love the personification and so will the students.

jasminep This website http://www.crayonspicturebooks.com/day-crayons-quit-activities/ takes you to the authors‘ website where they have lesson plans and activities that go with the book. The UDL I would use is 3.2  which is highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships because although the pages cover different topics they all have big ideas and there‘s definitely a pattern in the writing. 2y
jasminep I would use ESOL strategy 24 which is incorporate the culture and the language of second language learners in your curriculum because this books covers a lot of colors which is are easy translate in just about any language. Then the EL learners would learn as well the English speaking students.  #UCFLAE3414F17 2y

The One and Only Ivan | Katherine Applegate

The One and Only Ivan is a Newbery Award Winning F novel written by Katherine Applegate. I was not sure if I would like this story but I thoroughly enjoyed it. The story is about Ivan who is a gorilla that later on meets Ruby who is a baby elephant that was taken from her family. The story is also cool because Applegate actually based her character Ivan on a real gorilla that lived in a shopping mall for twenty-seven years. #UCFLAE3414F17

jasminep I would let this novel be an IR for the students since it is a novel. This website https://www.edhelper.com/books/The_One_and_Only_Ivan.htm is a literary guide for the story that includes book journals, word walls, and a lot of vocabulary worksheets. I would use UDL 7.2 which is optimize relevance, value, and authenticity since the story is based on true events. 2y
jasminep I would use ESOL strategy 38 which is assign short readings for homework because this is an independent reading so that could be very helpful. 2y

Moses: When Harriet Tubman Led Her People to Freedom written by Carole Boston Weatherford and illustrated by Kadir Nelson is an award-winning B picture book.

jasminep This link https://www.teachingbooks.net/media/pdf/DisneyHyperion/Moses.pdf is to a pdf of a discussion guide with pre-reading questions and projects that involve math, art, music, and even science.

She Persisted | Chelsea Clinton

     She Persisted is a NF picture book written by Chelsea Clinton and illustrated by Alexandra Boiger. Since the story covers multiple women I thought that a RT could be a nice way for the class to get involved and really get a good understanding of at least one important woman discussed in the story. I loved this book so much that I bought it for my niece and she is only one month. #UCFLAE3414F17

jasminep It is a great way to encourage our female students as well as enlighten all the students in the classroom because I personally did not know about a lot of the women in the book. The website https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/She-Persisted-Writing-Activity-and-B... has lesson plans and a lot of other activities for grades K-5. 2y
jasminep I would use UDL 2.1 which is clarify vocabulary and symbols because there are definitely some words that might be unknown.
For that same reason I would use ESOL strategy 5 which is teach technical vocabulary supporting key concepts.

The Keeping Quilt is a RF picture book that was written and illustrated by Patricia Polacco and has a Sydney Taylor Award which is an award for Jewish children‘s literature. I would use this book to do a RA with my students. This book is about the past generations of Polacco‘s family and their traditions. This book relays the importance of custom and tradition in immigrant life and Jewish heritage. #UCFLAE3414F17

jasminep This website https://www.teachervision.com/keeping-quilt has a lot of resources and enrichment activities for this book. The UDL I would use is 3.2 which is highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships because the story has a lot of patters and relationships.
I would use ESOL strategy 14 because if the book was hard to follow for some students I could simplify my speech by making it slower and redundant.

Stella by Starlight is an amazing New York Times Best Seller HF novel written by Sharon M. Draper. Before this class I didn‘t know who she was but now is one of my favorite authors so I could definitely see myself using this book for an AS along with other books of hers. Stella is an eleven-year-old living in NC during the 1930s a time when the KKK had no shame and continues to harass her community. #UCFLAE3414F17

jasminep This book definitely has a message that can relate to students even though it‘s from such a different time period.  This pdf https://sharondraper.com/stella-common-core.pdf will take you to Sharon‘s website with multiple activities relating to the book. 2y
jasminep Since it is a novel I can use UDL 1.3 and have students listen to the book. Or if I wanted them to take their time with the book I could use ESOL strategy 38 and assign short readings so it‘s not overwhelming.  2y
