Mentor Text 5.4.14

We are linking up with Collaboration Cuties for their Mentor Text linky.  This week the theme is Language Arts.  We wanted to share the book, Once There Was a Bull (Frog).  This book is a cute story about a frog searching for his lost hop.  Along the way he meets a "lady(bug)," "hedge(hog)," a "cow(boy)," and more!  The wordplay in this book makes for a very interesting and fun read aloud.  It is GREAT for a lesson about compound words.

  After reading this book, our kiddos make these fun flip books.  They are so easy to make and they always turn out cute!

Enjoy your Sunday! 


  1. Love this idea- the book looks so fun and that activity is such a great little friends seem to love anything we do with compound words, so I'll have to add this to the list for practice with compound words- thanks a bunch!
