    What is a “Mentor Text Moment” resource?

    These lesson sets are geared toward helping teachers present the Common Core to their grades 3-5 students by using read aloud picture book texts! In addition to thinking deeply about texts, the Common Core stresses citing evidence to prove understanding. Mentor texts are excellent examples of literature and the elements you notice in them can then be reinforced throughout students’ other reading and writing.

    Let this resource help you push your students’ thinking!


    • -Common Core Alignment (Grades 3-5)
    • --Holistic scoring rubric (2 formats)
    • -Suggestions For Use
    • -Vocabulary/language “highlights” to help with English Language Learners or struggling readers

    • (2 formats—clippable for readers’ notebooks

    Remember, the Common Core requires students to think deeply about sophisticated texts! This will not happen without modeling. Using this resource with a read aloud text can help you model some of these higher level comprehension expectations.
