PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Teaching the Elements of Fiction Using the Mentor Text "Someday"
4 Lessons & an Icebreaker Activity

When I saw "Someday" at the book fair, it was love at first sight! This picture book is a great back to school text. The character dreams about all of the things she will do "someday" while pairing her dreams with activities she does "today." This is a terrific book to teach certain elements of fiction:
- Characterization
- Point of View
- Theme
- Text Structure


In addition, this is a great icebreaker, because students can talk about their goals and dreams. For the icebreaker activity, students create their own "someday" book.

I plan to use this book during the first week of school, reviewing some of the elements of fiction and having kids discussed their goals.

The amount of time will vary depending upon which or how many activities you select to do.

Great lessons and activities for 3rd - 6th grades.
