I'm using Lucy Caulkins for the first time in 3rd grade. Could you please share any mentor texts you utilize at the beginning of the year for this lesson as well as any you use when teaching narrative writing? I would greatly appreciate it!

I just finished a summer institute, and a GREAT mentor text for small moment narratives that was shared was Roller Coaster by Marla Frazee. It is not the serious kind like My Father's Hands or The Leaving morning that I've seen recommended before, but it is fun. I loved it and I can just imagine that students, especially those that have been on a roller coaster before, would just love it too. It's a great example to the students of how "The author could have told ALL about her day at the amusement park and ALL about ALL the rides she went on, but she didn't- She told only about the one roller coaster ride and told about it in lots of little small details that create such a strong picture..." It is now in my Amazon book cart with about 20 others! I teach lower El, but I think it would work for 3rd fine, especially since more of those students are apt to have had that experience.

A Chair for my Mother is a good one to use for small moments too.

I love using Shortcut too! Another one that was recommended to me and looked good was Night of the Veggie Monster.

mentor texts for personal narrative writing

I used OWL MOON by Jane Yolen, and A CHAIR FOR MY MOTHER by Vera B. Williams.
My 3rd Graders responded very well to these, and it showed in their writing.
