These books will give students an opportunity to see how authors actually use language to create exciting books that readers enjoy reading. These books will be used during our read-alouds to introduce different literary techniques. Each book that I have requested has a mentor sentence that provides a springboard to help teach our language curriculum using real literature. Students listen to the read-aloud and try to identify the mentor sentence. After listening to the whole story, students then try to identify things that they notice about the mentor sentence like proper nouns, capitalization at the beginning of a sentence, verbs, adjectives, pronouns, etc. Students also edit and revise the sentence to practice writing conventions. Having each of these books in my classroom also allows my students to pick up these engaging stories and read them during our Reading workshop time.
