Spring fever has officially hit in our classroom and we needed some redirecting to turn our energy into positive actions. The book was the PERFECT mentor text for this!
Maria was sweet enough to send me the book to review with my students. Along with the book came a second for me to pass on to another teacher (how kind!)
here. I used that to help me plan to use the book to its fullest.
I started our week with the book by reading it to my students. You can check out a trailer of the book below.
I just happened to be teaching character change in our readers workshop. There was a page in the readers guide about how Dexter and Leah change in the story which was perfect! It was great to reinforce the skill and for me to check their progress.
Are you ready to grab the book yourself? You can buy it here! Or, you can enter the giveaway below. Entering is easy peasy and you can have up to three entries! The winner will be chosen in one week, on Tuesday March 21st.
Do you own any of Maria's books? I would love to hear how you used them in the classroom!
