Mentor Text 4.27.14

Hello there; time for Mentor Text!  This week the theme is End of the Year books…doesn't that have a nice ring; can't believe it's almost May!  Sarah and I have started our end of the year "to do lists," which are always very long.  One book we like to read at the end of the year is Last Day Blues.  This is by the same author as First Day Jitters (which is also a cute book).  Last Day Blues is about a class of students that is preparing for summer.  They are thinking about all of the fun they will have but also all of the things they will miss; including their teacher.  This is a cute and clever story that students (and teachers!) are sure to enjoy! 


Below is an End of the Year graphic organizer that you can use with your kiddos for this book or any other End of the Year book.  Click here if you'd like a FREE copy!

The book report is one of the activities included in our End of Year Fun packet.  End of Year Fun includes over 20 activities for your kiddos to enjoy.  Reading, Writing, Math, and Language concepts are all covered in the activities.  This was a big seller last year.  Our kiddos loved it and we know yours would too!  

On the topic of end of the year, we also have this fun freebie for you.  Click HERE if you'd like your free copy of our End of the Year awards -- there's one for each grade (K-5)!

Have a GREAT week!
