Katie’s Trunk: Mentor Text

Happy Sunday, friends! I’m linking up to Amanda and Stacia’s linky to share about a book that I love to use when are learning about the American Revolution!

It’s so good! Most books are written from the “pro-Revolution” side, but this book is told from the perspective of a “Tory” family who ends up having to run from their home because “the rebels are coming!” It has such a heart-warming ending- you will love it, and so will your kids!

I have a unit in my TPT store for this book, and I just “re-vamped” it today! If you previously bought it, make sure to go download the revised version! The unit was one of my first TPT units, so it needed some more love… It’s much cuter. ;o) I also added an extra activity to the unit!

Speaking of fun historical fiction books, this week’s Workshop Wednesday will be how you incorporate historical fiction into your Reader’s Workshop!

I hope everyone has a great week! :o)
