Back to School with Frank - Queen of the First Grade Jungle

Back to School with Frank

For years Amy and I have had requests to bring our Rooted in Reading units to upper grades. We thought Being Frank was the PERFECT book to try it out! 


If you haven't read Being Frank, you must find it! It is so unbelievably clever and hilarious. My favorite kinds of books are ones that have some hidden humor that allow adults to have a little chuckle too! 

Frank is SUCh a memorable character that he naturally lends himself to working on Character Traits. 


What Amy and I have done is allow you several different baby steps for learning how to analyze characters. We use this AMAZING short film (5 mins) Soar to help us out. 

Next up, we look at things that Frank does, says, and and thinks to help us learn more about him. 

And lastly we ask the kids to flip what they have learned and apply it to themselves.  They come up with a name for themselves- just like you see with the characters in Being Frank. 

I adore using picture books as mentor texts for big kids and I think that you will too if you try it out with Being Frank. You can find Amy and I's unit in her TPT store.

  2. Going 'back to school' can be a wonderful time if a child has the interest and liking for school. You need to prepare a child emotionally, mentally and physically. Parents need to get ready for children when they begin school for the first time or are going back to school after a break

  3. Mentors should endeavour to make homework help come across as natural effort during the learning process and not as a stressful activity.

  4. With October, now is the time to sharpen the pencils and bring out backpacks as it is back to school time. So, "Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you will land among the stars" said Les Brown
