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, Idea Jar, by Adam Lehrhaupt and Deb Pilutti, students will work on generating writing ideas and building writing stamina as they work on writing projects!
This pack contains:
- teacher instructions
- What is a Mentor Text? information sheet
- pre-writing and writing sheets to use while reading the book
- chart for developing an Idea Jar
- graphic organizer of writing ideas
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!
