What Mentor Texts could Strengthen this Lesson?
Suggest a mentor text review for the following essential question:

Hey teachers! What mentor text would you use to teach younger writers to be extra creative as they plan an original story? Click here to tell us the name of the mentor text, to share a brief description of the text, and to explain how you'd use the book to inspire more creative stories from your students. If we feature your idea at this page, you'll earn a resource for your classroom!

Share a Mentor Text and Creativity-inspiring Activity: Regina Williams' picture book, What If..., is a pretty great book to share before playing WritingFix's Wacky Word Game. The book is a glow-in-dark goodnight story that explores all the what ifs of our dreams. When your students find delight in notions like "What if gumdrops grew on trees?", their imaginations will be primed to play this delightful, story-inspiring word game.

After reading the book aloud, have students discuss and share original what ifs that the book inpsired in their imaginations. Write some of the best ones on a chart, and remind students of the chart before they play the wacky word game. If, when they press a button, they have an original idea for a word to put in one of the boxes (instead of what pops up!), let them use it!
