Happy Monday and Happy Cyber Monday Sale Day!
Today's Must Read Mentor Text is one of my most favorite books that I use to integrate Language Arts into Social Studies during our study of the American Revolution. This book is one that I look forward to using every year, and the students LOVE it! It usually ends up being one of their favorite books of the entire year! :)
I like to stop at many points throughout the text to have the students make predictions and also inferences about what is happening in the story. It really encourages critical thinking and discussion. I also do a lot of work with character traits and text evidence.
We created a whole unit to use with your study of the book. It has Common Core aligned activities that you can use with your students. We usually spend one-two weeks working through this book. Click below to see the unit in our TPT store. And it's on SALE today and tomorrow for Cyber Monday! :)
Hope you have a great week!
