Help your students grow into a group of grammar gurus! This is a yearlong grammar teaching unit using sentences from mentor texts. Each week follows a schedule beginning with students finding things of interest in the sample sentence for the week and ending with a quiz covering specific grammar skills. Along the way, students pick up the necessary skills to enhance their writing through imitation of accomplished authors and literature. This set of mentor sentences will take you through 32 weeks of instruction. No need to cover grammar in boring, disjointed blocks of time. Connect it to what you are reading and learning already using this complete unit!
Topics covered include:
commas in a series
commas in direct address
comparative/ superlative adjectives
***As a bonus, we have also included 68 color and b/w grammar posters that go with each skill! These look great in the classroom and can be given to students to put in their notebooks.
