Mentor Text { If You Find a Rock with FREEBIE}

Rocks and Minerals are a large part of our Science curriculum and often it is difficult to find non-expository text for this unit.  While doing some searching on Amazon I came across this book, If You Find a Rock.  It is a short book, and one I plan to use to introduce this unit, with pictures of how we use rocks.  

I also liked this book because it is a poem. The author speaks to the reader about finding rocks and describes the different features of the rocks.  I have added this book to my Amazon cart, one because I think it would be a great addition to my unit and two because I have a bad addiction to online shopping!

Today marks one year for I {Heart} Recess!  Check out my earlier blog post on how to enter a chance to win 15 great products from my BBB's and any three items from my TpT!

Today also marks one year for me as a seller on TpT.  To celebrate I am giving away a freebie from my Rocks & Minerals Interactive Notebook set to go along with today's Mentor Text.  Enjoy!

Keep stopping by this week for more Freebies in celebration of my one year blogiversary and TpT store!
