Linsayesp @lizzie0922 I have never read this book. Everyone who talks about it is in awe and recommend the book. This is next on my list. #UCFWaltersLit 2y
lburgos9 @lizzie0922 I remember reading this book in middle school but at the time I didn‘t realize how respected this book was so I treated it like any other book. I read it again a couple of years ago and I realized why many people talk about this book. #UCFWalterslit (edited) 2y
Caitlin4 I read this book recently. It kept me hooked through the whole thing, but that ending. 2y

This modern fantasy is about a girl named Camilla who loves lima beans but doesn‘t want to eat them because her friends don‘t like them and she wants to fit in. One day she wakes up and has thick solid colored stripes on her body. Great for students in 1st- 4th grade. #UCFWaltersLit

Linsayesp @lizzie0922 This seems like such a cute book ! Very seldom do you find children who like any type of beans ! #UCFWaltersLit 2y
Kirsten.Pacheco This is a great book to teach kids to be themselves and do what they like no matter what other kids have to say about those likes or them! Not being yourself in order to please others comes with downfalls, like the stripes. 2y

This realistic fiction is about a little raccoon on his first day at school and missing his mom. Everytime Chester misses his mom he puts his hand on his cheek where his mother kissed it so that way he knows she‘s with him. This is a great book to help students facing the first days of kindergarten, first grade or any other separations. #UCFWaltersLit

lburgos9 @lizzie0922 Thank you for posting this book. I feel like there‘s not enough books on this issue. Some kids go through really bad separation anxiety and books like this can help comfort them a bit. I also like the link to the lesson plan you put. The lesson plan with drawing your hand on the board is simple but effective. #UCFWalterslit (edited) 2y

Brittney3 @lizzie0922 I️ never read this book but it looks like it may be a good read. I️ glanced at the website and it looks like this book would be good to work with for a 4th or 5th grade class pertaining to civil rights. Interesting! 2y
Seans_h @lizzie0922 I think this book looks like a good read for 6-12 students because you can take an activity in any direction. For the story to focus on creating a movement against racism and discrimination, that is a problem we still face today and can be discussed in the classroom. Haven‘t read the book but would looks interesting. #UCFWaltersLit 2y
BLYTHE44 @BLYTHE44 #UCFWalterslit This is one of my all time favorites! I really enjoyed this style of writing. All the characters points of view were represented. 😍 LOVED IT (edited) 2y

Caitlin4 I've read this book and the series is a favorite of one of the 5th grade boys at the school I work at. 2y
Seans_h @lizzie0922 I have glanced through this book before and watched the movie and think that it should be included in the classroom for older students. Although it is a science fiction, if it is something students are interested by, they should be able to read it during their free time. I love this book and would recommend! #UCFWaltersLit 2y
Seans_h @lizzie0922 I also checked out the link and I like the activity that is attached because if students are interested by the story, they should have no problem talking about it or recalling which parts they liked or disliked #UCFWaltersLit 2y
marissa.s @lizzie0922 I absolutely LOVE this book series! For me, this book took me a while to get into because I feel as though the beginning is so boring, but as soon as you hit chapter 5, it's the most interesting book out there! Thanks for sharing, this really makes me want to re-read this series!!! #UCFWalterslit 2y

Rapunzel | Paul O. Zelinsky

Rapunzel is a traditional literature about a young girl who is locked in a tower with all her beauty. The story follows with her trapped in the tower and a prince who finds her and wins her heart. #UCFWaltersLit

https://www.bcpss.org/bbcswebdav/institution/CURRICULUM/Library/database_files/C...

Seans_h @lizzie0922 Rapunzel is a classic that I feel should be introduced to children sometime in elementary school. I‘m really interested by the link attached because I wouldn‘t be able to think of activities that go in depth about Rapunzel. I find that there are cooperative/ art activities involved that I‘m sure students would love. #UCFWaltersLit 2y

Three Cups of Tea is a nonfiction novel about Greg Mortenson and his inspiring campaign to build a bold in the most dangerous, remote, and anti-American reaches of Asia. It is all based on real life experiences. This book would be perfect for students in 8th-12th. #UCFWaltersLit

Seans_h @lizzie0922 This book looks interesting to use in the classroom because you can tell your students how it was all based on real life experiences. Like you said, it‘s probably recommended for 8-12 grade students but nonetheless, the link attached includes a summary of the book and reason why it should be taught. Great post! #UCFWaltersLit 2y

El Deafo | Cece Bell

This graphic novel El Deafo by Cece Bell is a autobiographical about a young girl named Cece who becomes deaf. This story follows Cece through her school life and social life as she struggles to fit in with her hearing box. I absolutely loved this graphic novel and felt that many kids could relate to what Cece was going through as she was trying to fit in. #UCFWaltersLit

Words with Wings | Nikki Grimes

I enjoyed this poem by Nikki Grimes because many kids and adults can relate to what the author was going through even if it hasn't physically happened to them. #UCFWaltersLit

ojavier1974 Awww!!!that is reality for a lot of our future students.... 2y
CWalters #UCFWalterslit So... knowing it may hit home, would you use it in class? With what grade and in what context? Just wondering if you thought about it as a future teacher. 2y
