Dogteam by Gary Paulsen is a great choice as a winter mentor text for figurative language and writing.. It has a vivid description of running a dogsled team on a night run. This unit is intended to be used for comprehension and writing. Students learn about the Iditarod, work with the text (imagery and sensory words), and apply their learning in their own writing piece. You can get a great feel for the unit using the preview supplied. Let me know if you have any questions...
