Mentor Text 5.18.14

Good Morning!  We are linking up with Collaboration Cuties for their Mentor Text linky.  This week the theme is Science.  We chose a book that is great for nonfiction reading skills with a summer theme; The Sun: Our Nearest Star.  This book is one from the "Let's Read and Find Out" series, which we think are very helpful for young readers.  This book provides information about how large the sun is, what it is made of, and more.  Most importantly, it provides information about what the sun does for the Earth. 

We made this fun graphic organizer to use after reading this book (or any other nonfiction book about the sun).  Click HERE if you'd like a FREE copy!

Speaking of SUMMER and FREEBIES…we've got a new FB Fan Freebie to get you and your kiddos thinking about Summer Break!  Come on over to our FB page to grab it!

Have a great Sunday!


  1. Huh. We teach about the solar system and I haven't seen this book! I will have to check this out for next year. Thanks for linking up!
