This includes one free unit from my NO PREP Reading & Writing Units for 40 Mentor Texts - K-1 EMERGENT (Better Than Basal).

The activities go with the book, The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn. There is also a free mentor sentence for this book you can try with these activities!

Purchase the complete set here. (You can find all of the texts in your local library or on Amazon! Texts are not included since they have copyrights and I am not a book distributor.)

The full product is JAM-PACKED with common core aligned lessons, graphic organizers, and writing prompts for 40 of your favorite mentor texts to use in K-1 with emergent readers! (Also appropriate for grade 2!) With over 100 graphic organizers WITH answer keys, you'll be set for the year!
