The Word Collector by Peter H. Reynolds

Recommended Grades: K-5

Some people collect coins, some collect stamps, but Jerome collects words.  Words that transform, connect, and empower.  This is a celebration of finding your own words and the impact you can have when you share them with the world.

Lesson Idea: 

Mentor Text; Six Traits of Writing – Word Choice:  Peter H. Reynolds books are always whimsical and inviting to young readers.  The Word Collector is no different.  Read aloud this book to provide students with an opportunity to realize that they too, can collect words in their writer’s notebooks.  And use the story to empower them to share those collected words with the world through their writing.
