I am an ambitious human being. I know that I want to use specific mentor texts this year for reading and writing mini-lessons, and I am certain a few are in our school library. I was curious... do you purchase your mentor texts? Get them from the public or school library? Just sorting through my (1,500+... who knows how many now?) books today at school has put me in a lousy mood for purchasing books. I have some mentor texts, but certainly not all. I want to know what I can possibly do and be economical at the same time.
