Weather Mentor Text - Ideas By Jivey: For the Classroom

Weather Mentor Text

Hello friends!! I am linking up with the Collaboration Cuties today to share about an awesome non-fiction weather book!
This is what my copy looks like, but apparently, they changed the cover at some point, because this is the only one I could find on Amazon:
Kinda weird....... but anyway, this book is a "stage 2" which is generally more for the younger grades, but let me tell you, I've used it the last few years in 4th grade because it covers a lot of our Science standards! Warm and cold fronts, wind speed, air pressure (high and low pressure systems), and weather instruments... there are great diagrams to help "see" these weather systems, too! These lend themselves nicely to a mini-lesson on nonfiction text features.
I have created some interactive notebook foldables (thanks to the lovely Erin at Lovin' Lit for the amazing templates!!) that can be used with any weather mentor text, or even your Science textbook. The idea is to have students take their "notes" in a more engaging fashion, and the foldables are great to help them study later, too.
These are, of course, included in my store for the BIG Back to School Sale, but I want to hook you up with a freebie, because I love my blog followers sooo much! :o) The product includes the foldables above, as well as answer keys.

  1. What cute books! 5th grade studies weather at my school. I am going to pass your suggestions onto our 5th grade teacher!

  2. This looks like a great book! Also, your weather foldables look amazing. I miss teaching weather. It was one of my favorite units.


  3. I used that text last year when teaching weather in 4th grade!

  4. Stopping by from Manic Monday to say hello! I love the whole foldables idea. In fact, I tried doing lap books with my grade ones and twos last year (and it was a bit of a disaster,) but I think if I had some big buddies it might be more successful.
