PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

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. This resource can help and is based upon Eve Bunting's book "Train to Somewhere?".

Let this resource help you push your students’ thinking!

Included:
-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
-Discussion Prompts
-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.
