Description

**ALIGNED TO NEW TEKS!** Mentor sentence instruction blends explicit instruction of grammar skills with hands-on sentence building and constructing. Students analyze sentences, learn new TEKS-based grammar skills, revise and create sentences following sentence structures.

This product helps students connect grammar instruction to their own writing and testing situations! Teach grammar authentically and effectively through the use of mentor sentences and a thoughtful approach to conventions instruction.

This product includes nine weeks of grammar instruction and all the tools you'll need to make it stick! These tools have made a difference in my students' writing! I know they'll make a difference in yours! By bridging the grammatical skills in context to revision and editing in a testing format, students will learn what's important about grammar instruction as well as how to apply it in a variety of contexts.
