A short list of the texts my students went for to help them revise the endings of their stories today…

Two Mentor Texts Requested By Students
One of our readers, Kelly, asked me to share the list of texts my students went for when looking for mentor texts to help them revise the endings of their short fiction pieces today. Here’s the list of texts they used:

  • Fly Away, Home by Eve Bunting
  • “Josie’s First Allowance Day” by Rosie Perez
  • Knuffle Bunny Too: A Case of Mistaken Identity by Mo Willems
  • Leaves by David Ezra Stein
  • Mutt Dog by Stephen Michael King
  • This School Is Not White! by Doreen Rappaport
  • Here’s the lists of books they told ME I should look at to help improve my ending:
    Baby by Patricia MacLachlan, Mutt Dog by Stephen Michael King, and Mrs. Katz & Tush by Patricia Polacco. (They had some FANTASTIC suggestions for how to revise my story. It’s great having your students show you what you can fix/make better. I love getting their insight on my writing.)
