HELP ME PLAN!
You don’t need to do all of the mentor sentence lessons in the order they come in the units. When I created units 1, 2, and 3, I put them in an order that progressed in difficulty, so these lessons spiral, but it is not necessary to stay in that order. The first three units are more seasonally appropriate for beginning, middle, and end of the year, and then Unit 4 was created with “anytime” books that can be used throughout the year.

There is a free download of the "At-A-Glance" for all 40 books in Second Grade! This download will help you see all of the skills covered in the units if you’d like to “bounce around” within them.

*****************************************************************************
WHAT ABOUT OTHER GRADE LEVELS?

Mentor Sentences can be done in ALL grades! Please tell your teacher friends about mentor sentences for their grade:
Kindergarten & ELL (Early Emergent Readers)
First Grade

There are TWO volumes for grades 3-5 to help prevent repetition of lessons and books within the same school:
Volume 1 for Grades 3-5
Volume 2 for Grades 3-5
