Third Grade Mentor Text


We finished reading, discussing, and responding aloud and in writing to the 2014 Newbery Award Winning book Flora and Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo.  Our current aloud is the 2004 Newbery Award Winning book The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo.  This award is given annually by the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of the American Library Association, to the author of the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children.  The criteria for this award includes interpretation of the theme or concept, presentation of information including accuracy, clarity, and organization, development of a plot, delineation of characters, delineation of a setting, and appropriateness of style.  Since these books are by the same author we will be thinking about and discussing the similarities and differences between the plots, settings, and characters in these books as well as other common core reading comprehension concepts.The Tale of Despereaux - Wikipedia Flora & Ulysses Illuminated Adventures: Kate DiCamillo, Kate DiCamillo,  Kate DiCamillo: 9781406354560: Books
