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, How to Swallow a Pig, by Steve Jenkins and Robin Page, students will produce their own animal "how to" writing projects!
This pack contains:
- teacher instructions
- What is a Mentor Text? information sheet
- sheets to use while reading the book
- two anchor charts
Topic Sentences and Details
What is a Verb?
- sheets for an animal "how to" writing project (pre-writing, sample topics, etc.)
- graphic organizer for recording animal research
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!
