Mentor Text in Writing Workshop - Small Moments

Here are MENTOR TEXTS that I have shared with students when teaching them how to write SMALL MOMENT PERSONAL NARRATIVES:


When guiding students to write a personal narrative, also called small moment stories, teachers can share a published picture book that is a small moment personal narrative. Students can listen to these Mentor Texts, noticing what the author is doing, noticing their craft. Maybe they pay attention to the lead, the way a moment is described, specific vocabulary words, the ending. Then they can choose to incorporate the craft they notice into their writing.
