Product Description
Mentor sentences are the perfect way to teach grammar and author's craft through examples of excellent sentences from your favorite read-aloud books! This unit will be a great way to integrate science in with your mentor sentences during your study of animals and/or adaptations! It does not include explicit directions of how to implement mentor sentences in your room- these directions are in the Volume 1, FIRST Ten Weeks: Mentor Sentence Unit, Volume 2, FIRST Ten Weeks: Mentor Sentence Unit, or Volume 3, FIRST Ten Weeks: Mentor Sentence Unit products for sale.

WHAT’S INCLUDED?
I walk you through each day's lesson for 5 weeks- all the work is done! I've even done all the thinking for you when it comes to revising and imitating! :) Each lesson includes the teacher sentence page, the student sentence page, a lesson plan page with possibilities for all 4 days, an interactive activity with the focus skill, and a quiz aligned with CCSS with answer key.

Please download the preview file to see the layout. There are 5 lessons for the following books:

*The mentor sentence lessons I have created are adapted from the ideas of Jeff Anderson. These lessons were born from the routine that worked well in my classroom, and the demos and examples I present are variations of Jeff Anderson's methods. This is not the only way to "do" mentor sentences in your classroom.*
