PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

If you are looking for the digital version of the NO PREP Reading and Writing Units for Volume 2, click here.

*****************************************************************************
WHAT'S INCLUDED?
I have created a hard copy book of Better Than Basal: a product that is JAM-PACKED with Common Core aligned lesson ideas, activities, graphic organizers, and writing prompts for 30 of your favorite mentor texts to use in grades 3-5! (See the complete list below.) With over 100 graphic organizers WITH answer keys, you'll be set for the whole school year (and years to come) with a bound book, and you'll save on ink and paper costs! You will also receive the full color digital version of the document via email, so please make sure you have provided the correct email address when you order.

Several of my followers who use my Volume 2 Mentor Sentence Units asked how I use those books in reading and writing. Because of those requests, this product was born! (You do not have to use Mentor Sentences to use these texts in your classroom...)

Not familiar with mentor sentences? Read all about them here!

Activities cover skills such as:
Using evidence to describe, infer, and draw conclusions
Summarizing
Identifying and supporting theme
Identifying and supporting character traits
Explaining figurative language
Identifying vivid language

Defining words using context clues
...and more!

There is also a writing prompt for every book that ties to the theme, idea, or topic of the book. Get this free "At-A-Glance" download to see the skills covered for all 40 books in Volume 2!
