Mrs. Foster and Mrs. Keel’s third grade reading classes kicked off their unit by making meaningful connections with their mentor text, Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun. In the book, the main character Lucy is made fun of for the different lunch choices that she brings to school. Students connected with how Lucy had the courage to be different and had the opportunity to enjoy spaghetti in a hot dog bun to wrap up the week.
