Collaboration Cuties is hosting an ongoing mentor text link up with rotating topics. This week's topic is fab books for ELA skills. My mentor text this week is Bunny Cakes by Rosemary Wells.
This book is part of the Max and Ruby series. I chronicles Ruby and Max's efforts to make two very different birthday cakes for their grandma. Bunny Cakes is a simple story with fun illustrations. There are many skills you can cover with this book, such as retelling the plot.
Below is a somebody wanted graphic organizer you can use with Bunny Cakes. Students can choose which character to focus on for this activity. Each character wants the basically same thing, to make a fabulous cake for grandma, but they face different challenges accomplishing their goal.
Click on the picture below if you would like a free copy of this graphic organizer.
Here's the scoop . . .
Thanks for reading and remember, there are other Mentor Text recommendations at Collaboration Cuties.
