How hard can it be to babysit a fish? That’s what Jake thinks when Sophie asks him to take care of Yo-Yo for the weekend. Then Jake starts to over think what it means to take care of a fish.
Six Traits Mentor Text: Organization: Read aloud Sophie’s Fish as part of a unit on the craft of endings. Sophie’s Fish is a great example of a surprise ending, but the illustrator shares the surprise, not the author. Read aloud other mentor texts that demonstrate surprise endings. Encourage students to write a surprise ending for one of their writing pieces.
