Hi everyone! This is going to be a VERY exciting week for me and my family. Tomorrow is our baby #3 delivery day 3/4/14, so please keep us in your prayers. You may be wondering if Mentor Monday will be taking a break. I’m happy to report that I have several wonderful teacher blogger friends that will take over the month of March for me and guest blog. So, yes! You can count on Mentor Monday to continue while I’m adjusting to three little ones, all under the age of 2. (yikes!)
One more thing before I continue onto my post. My latest March/April newsletter is up and ready to download. Just click the owl in the right sidebar saying, “Click here to see my newsletters!” and it will take you to Issue #5. A special thank you to Em of Curious Firsties for her guest article on the NIM strategy. You may have read about it on the Adventures In Literacy Land blog. It’s an important fluency strategy for struggling readers, so be sure to check it out.

Events in the plot along the way.
Be sure to check out this fabulous mentor text with your students. Feel free to comment with your own book choices for making predictions, along with any you may have for gender and weight too! :))
I will be back blogging hopefully by early April. Please welcome my guests throughout the month of March. Thank you!
