Use mentor sentences to study vocabulary and grammar. These mentor sentences will help you teach grammar and vocabulary—AND meet language standards,
You will receive a presentation with mentor sentences from Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson and Night by Elie Wiesel. Perfect as language arts bell ringers, you can use these mentor sentences at any point in class!
Each slide has a quote with a bolded vocabulary word, a picture related to the concept, the word's definition and part of speech, and instructions for analysis. Questions might relate to the sentence structure, the vocabulary word, context, or overall effect. The goal of these questions is to move students from basic recognition and knowledge to creating, analysis, and application.
Topics covered with these mentor sentences include:
- Prefixes and suffixes
- Sentence structure
- Patterns of words
- Denotations and connotations
Possible answers and additional talking points are included in the teacher version.
These mentor sentences and questions are intended to dive deeply into grammar and language and move students toward higher levels of thinking. Please see the thumbnails and preview for pictures of the content, and ask any questions in the question section.
This grammar and vocabulary activity is part of a discounted, larger bundle: Ninth and Tenth Grade Grammar Bundle

Feedback from other teachers about these mentor sentences. . .
My sophomores just finished reading Night, and I used some of these to show different language and grammar elements. They got a kick out of learning writing through Elie Wiesel's words.
A great way to show connections between literature and grammar. Works great.
I really liked how it used the text to explain grammar and it was a great resource to my grammar exercises we were already doing.
