Mentor Text: Kiss Good Night

on October 12, 2016


Kiss Good Night is a short and sweet picture book that packs a punch for writing instruction. It would be a great mentor text to use during any narrative unit. In the story Mrs. Bear is putting Sam to bed, but Sam is waiting for something special. This text is chock full of teachable spots including:

  • strong setting lead
  • dialogue
  • sensory sound words
  • little actions
  • and many, many more

If you want to borrow this book it’s on the read aloud display rack in my room. Enjoy!
