mentor texts

Clip to ScrapBook #3

I would start with mentor texts. There are many wonderful picture books, written at the Intermediate level, that you can read with kids. I would find some from various time periods and those written in different formats. After reading several, and "deconstructing" them, they can use these for their own stories.



I use mentor text with virtually all my writing instruction. We're getting ready to start one on biographies, one of my favorites.
