Day 3 - What do I know this sentence means? Students demonstrate their understanding of the sentence’s meaning.
Day 4 - What is the structure of this sentence? As a class, examine the style and structure of the sentence and create a sentence frame based on the mentor sentence.
Day 5 - Can I write a quality sentence? Students imitate the structure of the mentor sentence by writing an original sentence in the same style and structure as the mentor sentence.
