As a Kindergarten teacher, my favorite (current) character has to be Pete the Cat! When I share him with my kids, he lets them know that even though things don't go exactly as planned, it will be okay! email: firstname.lastname@example.orgThanks!
This is too cute! This would be a great unit for the beginning on the year :)
Darn it...I'm a bit late. Oh well. I love it and I grabbed the freebie. :) Thanks!Brandee @ Creating Lifelong Learners
Too late, but that's okay. My favorite character is Frances from the series by Hoban. I have loved her since I was a little girl and I pass that on to my students every email@example.com
Even though I am late I would like to say my favorite character is the Mellop family form the series by Tommy Ungerer series. Read it as a kid. I have a couple of the books in my classroom.
oops!! firstname.lastname@example.org :)

Can you explain your mentor text for the month? Do you use a new book each month? Are they used for your reading lessons? Thanks for sharing.Jeanette Third Grade Galore
Hi Jeanette,Thanks for the question!So a mentor text is a text that I read to my students during a read aloud (most likely a fiction story) and then return back to that text over and over again throughout the next couple of weeks, to teach a mini lesson. I use mentor texts mainly for reading and writing. If you want to learn a little bit more about how we read one text and then use it to teach different reading mini-lessons from it, you may find this blog post helpful:http://lessonplansos.blogspot.com/2013/01/rockin-reading-workshop-gingerbread.htmlI hope this helps!PS...Good luck on the Soldier Field 10 miler this weekend! You should have some gorgeous, cool weather! :)
