This is a set of mentor texts to be used when teaching a "how to" books writing unit. It is difficult to find mentor texts in the library that really show young writers specifically what we want them to do, at their level. These books offer high quality examples, using exactly the criteria we have for the kids. Two books use photographs, and two have hand drawings.
These are designed to be used in tandem with my "How To" books unit and checklist paper, which you can also get in my store. The files were too large for one download! However, these mentor texts can be used on their own as well.
I hope you enjoy this writing unit as much as I do!
