Mentor Text: Antonym Focus

Happy Sunday! I’m linking up with the super sweet ladies over at Collaboration Cuties for their Language Arts Mentor Text Linky this week.

I’m sharing an engaging book all about antonyms: Straight and Curvy, Meek and Nervy by Brian P. Cleary. The book goes through a bunch of different comparisons of all sorts of words that are antonyms. I love that this book constantly refers to the words in the text as antonyms…a lot of times my little friends will just call them opposites, but I like that this book emphasizes “antonyms” to help expose them to the word as well.

 I also love all the new vocabulary words that pop up through reading this story out loud to my little friends. The illustrations in this book are so entertaining and just captivate my little friends- they definitely help them understand the meanings of all the words, too.  The vocabulary also encourages them to start using different words, which is SO helpful to advance their writing…and make their writing much more interesting to read!

 The author also has several more of these books that I love to use with my little friends with a focus on nouns, verbs and adjectives. They are great read alouds when introducing or reviewing any of these concepts!

  1. I hadn't seen this title in the series yet. My kids will love the rhyming text! The pictures are really engaging, too!
    Thanks for sharing,
