Busy Bees
Bees live together in a hive. Every bee
has a job. The queen’s job is to lay eggs.
Workers do everything else.
Each worker bee has a job. Young bees
work inside. When a bee is one day old, its
job is to clean the hive.
A bee that is three days old feeds baby
bees. As each bee gets older, it gets a
new job.
At 21 days old, worker bees go outside.
Their new job is to get food and water for
the hive.
Bees stay very busy.

Mentor Text: Narrative
Thunder Fort
Rob sat by his bedroom window and
watched the storm outside.
His dog, Bell, ran under the bed because
she was afraid of the thunder.
“Bell, we need a place to hide,” Rob said.
He pushed his chair across the room.
Next he grabbed a blanket and spread it
over the chair.
Bell peeked out.
Rob tied the blanket to his desk. Then
he tied the other side of it to the closet
doorknob.
“Bell, I made a fort!” he said.
Bell wagged her tail. She came out from
under the bed. They went into the fort
and played.

Mentor Text: Opinion About Literature
All About Corduroy
Corduroy is the best book because it is
funny. It is about a teddy bear in a store. His
name is Corduroy.
A girl named Lisa wants to take Corduroy
home. But Lisa’s mom will not buy him. Her
mom says the teddy bear is missing a button.
When the store is closed at night,
Corduroy looks for his lost button. This is
when the story starts to get funny.
First Corduroy thinks the buttons on the
mattresses are buttons for clothes. Then tries
to pull them off. But he pulls too hard and
falls on the floor. Also he knocks over a lamp.
This is all very silly for a little bear.
Read the book to find out what happens
to Corduroy. You will be glad you did.

Mentor Text: Opinion About a Topic
Grow a Garden
A garden is a place to grow food. I think
everyone should plant a garden. Here is why
I think so.
Food from a garden is good for you.
Vegetables and fruits keep you healthy.
Gardens can save you money because
you can grow food instead of buying it. It
costs less to grow your own food.
Gardens are fun, too. You get to play in
the dirt and dig holes. It is also fun to watch
a seed grow into a plant.
Plant a garden. It is healthy and fun for
the whole family.

Mentor Text: Explanation
How Water Gets to Your Home
Go to a sink and turn on the faucet.
Out comes water! But where does this water
come from?
Each city or town gets its water from
a lake or under the ground. First, water is
pumped to a water plant. The water plant
makes the water safe to drink.
Next, the water is pumped to a tall tower.
The tower holds water until people need it.
Finally, the water flows through pipes
under streets and your home. Turn on the
faucet and out comes water!

Mentor Text: Adventure
Beaver Looks for a Home
Beaver did not want to build a home
like other beavers. He did not like to chop
wood all day. He looked for a home that was
already built.
First, he tried to squeeze into Rabbit’s
hole, but he was too big. Next, Beaver
squeezed into Bird’s nest, but he was too big.
Then Beaver found Bear’s cave. The cave
was big, but it was TOO BIG.
Rabbit, Bird, and Bear all said, “You should
build your own home.”
“Great idea!” said Beaver.
Beaver built his home with sticks. It was
the perfect size.
