I love reading children’s picture books. Some books, I linger in the words and begin to comb the text for many mini-lesson possibilities. Sometimes, I read a book and think how engaging and fun it will be to read to a certain class. All texts are crafted and have potential to be used as a mentor text. I just don’t have time to cultivate every text.
I have found that many teachers are using Instagram and Twitter as their PD. I sure do. I love reading short, quick snippets of learning to use with my kids. Thus, I began the Instagram account, Booksavors. Not all of the books on the Instagram account are featured on this blog. It’s just another way to connect you with books to connect with kids. And in the process, maybe you’ll find a great mentor text!
