Read Aloud and Lesson for May:)

My Brother Dan's Delicious
The lesson of the month is --in my opinion-- the perfect kind of lesson to be doing in the last month and a half of school: it's both fun and it teaches some useful skills.  This lesson was used as an exemplar lesson during last year's Persuasive Writing Across the Curriculum Workshop here in Nevada.  The mentor text--Steven L. Layne's My Brother Dan's Delicious-- is just a wonderful read aloud that so many teachers still don't know about; it's worth checking out, and it will inspire your kids to write to this assignment...and use voice tricks when they write!
