This is a bundled set of SIX "Mentor Text Moments" also available separately in my store. They are bundled together here to provide all six at once at a greatly reduced price. Each of these focuses on one classic Eve Bunting picture book which can be used as a model for helping readers and writers think more deeply about texts. Included texts are:
*Train to Somewhere
*The Wednesday Surprise
*How Many Days to America?
*Fly Away Home
*The Memory String
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
-Writing reflection “Pausing Points”
(2 formats—clippable for readers’ notebooks
and as stand alone pages)
--A summary/theme response sheet
-2 graphic organizers
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.
