I am teaming up with The Reading Crew to bring you all you need to teach some amazing mentor text lessons this fall!
Does your school participate in Read For The Record? It's on October 27, 2016, and this year's book is such a fun one! Even if you don't join in with Jumpstart, you will still love to use this book with you K-2 kiddos.
The Bear Ate Your Sandwich is the story of a bear, lost in a city. He comes across many things in this "strange new forest," and one of them is YOUR SANDWICH! But wait... was it really a bear that ate it? You'll have to read to find out! :)
Before reading the book, help students understand the words they are going to hear in the story. Display the sandwich cards with the sentence and picture clue. Talk to students about what they think the word might mean based on the context and the picture.
After reading the book, give students the vocabulary activity. They should shade the sandwiches with the word and definition that match the same color.
Grab the cards and activity here!
And, of course, you have to get the mentor sentence for this book, too! (Not familiar with mentor sentences? Check them out here!) It will be a great way to extend the vocabulary word, "interesting" as they use it in their own sentences.
