This is a terrific mentor text for inexperienced writers. Like all excellent picture books, there is more than one writing mini-lesson that can be generated from it. Several ideas are listed.
The teaching point described in this lesson is the see-saw text structure, a form of a pattern book. Graphic organizer included.
Additional mini-lessons are also suggested.
This is a favorite mini-lesson of both teachers and students given to you by Coach Cathy 2013. Let me know if you find this lesson helpful and would like additional ones.
