Time is precious. There is NEVER enough of it!!
But, what if there was a way you could take back some of that time? Would you take it?
I have your answer!
A mentor text is not simply a read-aloud. Although mentor texts should be read for enjoyment FIRST, that is not its only purpose. It is not an entire novel either. You can absolutely model skills from a chapter book, but a mentor text should be shorter in length so that it can be referred to throughout a week (or two or three!) for different skills.
