How to Get a Girlfriend by the Kindergarten Students of Zagreb, Croatia - Writing with Mentor Text series

My students absolutely LOVED this book! It's adorable. And they loved writing a "how-to" piece in this format. They said it was a lot more fun that writing a "how to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich" essay :)

Lesson Seven: How to Get a Girlfriend

For those of you getting ready to go back to school, best of luck to you on a smooth start to your year. Keep me posted if you try out any of these lessons.

Happy Teaching!!


  1. Hi Jenna! I love these mentor text lessons! Obviously I haven't had a chance to try this out, but it looks awesome. Couple of quick questions, is there a place on here where I can download these to use later? Also, will you be putting a bunch of these together? I was debating buying the "Craft Lessons" by Ralph Fletcher, but what you have here is more of what I'd like to use. Again, GREAT job here. Love the layout, too :)

    2. Hi! Thanks so much for your feedback. I wasn't planning to put them all together somewhere, but they will stay on the blog so you can always access them. (And, I must say, that "Craft Lessons" is an amazing read! You can often get a used copy on Amazon for a few bucks... worth it!!)

      Thanks again!
