Laura Numeroff Mentor Texts! This week we used Laura Numeroff;’s books as a mentor text for writers workshop and reading. See some of the anchor charts that we created in my kindergarten classroom.
Laura Numeroff Mentor Texts
We started the week by reading these fun books by Laura Numeroff.
- If You Give a Mouse a Cookie
- If You Give a Pig a Pancake
- If You Give a Moose a Muffin
- If You Give a Dog a Donut
- If You Give a Cat a Cupcake
- If You Give a Pig a Party
Our Laura Numeroff Author Study was off to a great start. Here is a look at a few of our anchor charts. We followed the lesson ideas from Erica Bohrer: Laura Numeroff: If You Give… Author Study
I grabbed these great ideas from Chalk Talk: A Kindergarten Blog. She has the BEST ideas posted on her blog… don’t you think? She also has the directions on how to make these cute mice! LoVe!
These response pages are also from Erica Bohrer’s Unit.

We even talked about circular stories in Writer’s Workshop.
My students also loved these center activities that we included during math centers and literacy centers. These were recently updated.
