Need picture books to model writing skills? Pinkalicious is always a hit and can lead to great patterned writing. I also love A Bad Case of Stripes for writing too. I can also see Bad Kitty working well too. Maybe you’re teaching sequencing or story patterns? The books by Laura Numeroff work well for modeling at a lower level before digging into other texts. If you give a Cat a Cupcake or If you give a Dog a Donut hit the sweet treat theme. Here are freebies that go with Pinkalicious and Bad Case of Stripes.
