Use mentor sentences to teach grammar! This 8th grade ELA resource can help you teach 8th grade Common Core language standards and can be used as a bell ringer or for mini lessons each day.

There are eleven units included which will require two nine weeks of instruction (90 days).

The units build on each other and are spiraling in nature.

We begin with prepositional phrases because subjects and verbs can never be found inside of prepositional phrases. By teaching these first, students can identify them, place parenthesis around them, and look elsewhere in the sentence for the subject and verb of the sentence.

Each unit is crafted with the following:

Handouts that can be given to your students. Each unit includes a notes page that breaks down the lesson in easy to understand terms and provides examples and sometimes non-examples. Some units contain several “teaching pages” to help you introduce the grammar concept.

Practice pages with simple sentences. Each unit begins by having students work with easy sentences as they are learning new concepts.

After the easy sentences, the unit moves to mentor sentences provided from literature, mostly from young adult novels ~ Your students may even decide to read one of the books from which a mentor sentence comes!

Easy to understand explanations, directions, and examples

Quick and meaningful activities to ensure students’ success with each concept

Opportunities for students to mimic the mentor sentences and craft original sentences of their own

Some units contains ten practice pages, to be used over the course of ten days, and some units contain five practice pages, to be used over the course of five days. The important thing is that you will use minutes to gradually teach grammatical concepts

One of the 8th grade standards is to explain the function of verbals (gerunds, participles, infinitives) in general and their function in particular sentences. This is impossible to do if students do not understand subjects, verbs, objects, compliments, phrases, and clauses. This resource takes a spiraling approach to teach grammar in a way that will WORK!

Tips and tricks are included along the way, and if you do not feel confident in teaching grammar, this resource will help you as well!

This product is included in our 8th Grade Mega Bundle!
