Scarecrow by Cynthia Rylant
is another descriptive book that works beautifully as a mentor text for author's craft and especially with the Six Traits. Rylant's poetic language and description make this book perfect for character development, visualizing, and making inferences. Included in this unit are a schema building activity, predicting organizer, vocabulary preteaching page, visualizing including text examples, a genre/point of view/author's purpose flapbook,story summarizer interactive notebook pieces, and two written response sheets 16 pages total. This book would work well during the fall harvest or during planting season.
