May's writing lesson, courtesy of the Harrisons. Enjoy!
It's officially posted at my site and ready to use: May's Writing Lesson, which could make an excellent Mother's Day writing assignment.
A NOTE ABOUT THE CITED MENTOR TEXT ("31 Uses for a Mom") It's out of print, and in the past month, you users of my website have cleaned out those on Amazon who were selling their used copies for reasonable prices. Here's the good news: You can teach this lesson without the mentor text (or any of its available cousins, like "41 Uses for a Grandma" http://www.amazon.com/41-Uses-Grandma-Harriet-Ziefert/dp/1609051068/ref=pd_sim_b_3?ie=UTF8&refRID=0KB7V5G51SNVM5DAE4HM). At the lesson link, just share my posted teacher model about our dog Pudge, and I am confident your kids will get the idea of 'Unique Job Descriptions for Someone You Love," which is the idea of the assignment.
Here's a link to the Lesson of the Month, plus a notebook idea, a great Sacred Writing Slide for May, and a suggestion for having students write about new vocabulary words: http://corbettharrison.com/LotM.htm#month
Have a great month! Summer is on the way!
