Aqualicious...Flip Flops, Beach Chairs, and Mentor Texts

I love the summer.  My idea of a perfect day is sitting in a beach chair with the waves touching my toes, a breeze off the ocean and a book in my hand.  Nothing better.  BUT, let's put that love in the classroom and teach with this beachy mentor text.

I chose Aqualicious...the newest book in the Pinkalicious series.  What if you found a seashell at the beach?  AND what if that seashell had a mermaid in it?  AND what if that mermaid was a merminnie...and tiny mermail?  That would be a memorable day, would it?

That's exactly what happens to Pinkalicious.  She's at the beach with her mom, dad, and brother all decked out in her pink suit, her pink sunglasses, her pink hat and her pink bucket is full of shells.  She can't believe it when she finds a merminnie in the shell.

They will have a few adventures before Pinkalicious and her brother help get the merminnie back home again.

My FREEBIE is a syllable sort.  Using words and pictures from the story, students can sort by syllable.  I provided large word cards for whole group sorting and an individual sort that can be copied and used as a follow-up.  I chose the supply the word on the sort.  Students can use the "get your mouth ready" strategy to determine between the bucket and pail.
