Mentor Text {1.12.14}

Hello to all of you!  We are linking up with Collaboration Cuties for their Mentor Text linky.  This week the theme is Math.  The book we chose we use across the subject areas…we just LOVE it so much (and we know you will too).  In math we use, The Important Book, when we are learning about shapes.    The Important Book highlights the special attributes or main features of several objects / things that are common in daily life.  You may ask, how is this math related?  Well…after reading it we discuss the "important" things about each of the shapes we are learning about. :)  See the free class book below!  
The Important Book is a definite MUST READ!!! 

After reading The Important Book, our kiddos will make this class book highlighting the important attributes of the shapes we are studying.   We left the pages blank so that your kiddos can fill in the shapes that work best for the grade level you teach.  We will be using it with 3D shapes.  If you'd like a FREE copy, click here!

If you are also studying shapes and need more materials, check out our shape packet, 

Have a SUPER week! 


  1. How cute! I had never thought to use this book for math but no my brain is goin in lots of ways I could use it in math! I love this book, and you are right- it could really work for a lot different subjects! Thanks so much for linking up!!!

    1. You're welcome! Yes, it can be used all sorts of ways!

  2. I love this book! It has so many possibilities! I used it with my fifth graders a couple of years ago to create a thank-you book for a teacher candidate. My students each wrote a page about "The Important Thing About Miss E". It was so special! :)
