We use mentor texts in every writing lesson as a way to get kids excited about writing and to show them real examples of what we are asking them to do in writing.
Using the book, Dear Mrs. LaRue: Notes From Obedience School, by Mark Teague, students will produce their own friendly letter writing projects!
This pack contains:
- teacher instructions
- What is a Mentor Text? information sheet
- sheets to use while reading the book
- two anchor charts
Point of View - Who's Telling the Story?
What is a Verb?
- sheets for friendly letter writing project (pre-writing, final copy pages, etc.)
I will be adding additional Writing packs using Mentor Texts soon! Stay tuned and you can also “follow” my TpT shop to get emails when new products are listed!
