Description

Say Something! by Peter H. Reynolds is an empowering picture book you AND your students will love. If you don't own a copy of the book, check your local library or you might even find an online read-aloud of the text with a simple Google search!

Using mentor texts is one of the best ways to maximize your teaching time. You are able to teach multiple skills, subjects, and topics with just one book!

With this unit, you'll be able to teach important ELA skills while students also uncover ways to use their voice through words, actions, and creativity, even at a young age. They will also learn about a fellow young person, Mari Copeny, who used her voice to help her community and change the world.

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THIS UNIT?

  • a week of plans that teach community building, opinion writing, key details, and conditionals using the book, Say Something! by Peter H. Reynolds (book not included)
  • detailed explicit lessons, including teacher samples
  • a week-at-a-glance plan
  • digitally converted activities in Google Slides and Forms, when applicable
  • mentor sentence lesson teaching conditionals
  • reading lessons to teach about identifying key details, using details to determine a message, main idea and details, and inferring with key details
  • writing lessons to practice writing conditionals with advice as well as facts, rephrasing questions into statements, and sharing an opinion through a letter
  • original article by me, Jessica Ivey-Smith, about Mari Copeny and the Flint Water Crisis to integrate current events as well as social studies
  • printables for skill practice
  • short assessments

You will notice that the units align in best practices with my other resources, so if you are already using other components like Mentor Sentences, Better Than Basal, or Everything But The Books, they can easily be incorporated into your plans without breaking stride.

In fact, this unit follows the exact same structure as my Everything But The Books resources!

*The mentor sentence lessons I have created are adapted from the ideas of Jeff Anderson. These lessons were born from the routine that worked well in my classroom, and the demos and examples I present are variations of Jeff Anderson's methods. This is not the only way to "do" mentor sentences in your classroom.*
