WHAT’S INCLUDED?
There is a 9-page introduction in the FIRST unit with pictures included of how I use mentor sentences in my room (VERY detailed, day-by-day). In each unit, I walk you through each day's lesson for 40 weeks- all the work is done! I've even done all the thinking for you when it comes to revising and imitating! :) Just think, what a deal- less than $1 per week! Each lesson includes the teacher sentence page, the student sentence page, a lesson plan page with possibilities for all 4 days, and a quiz aligned with CCSS with answer key.

I have bundled ALL FOUR of my Mentor Sentence Units in Volume 1, saving you $6 if you buy the bundle! You'll be set for the whole school year! Here are the links to each unit so you can see what is in this bundle: FIRST Ten Weeks: Mentor Sentence Unit, SECOND Ten Weeks: Mentor Sentence Unit, THIRD Ten Weeks: Mentor Sentence Unit and FOURTH Ten Weeks: Mentor Sentence Unit.

This download also includes the "At-A-Glance" for all 40 books in Volume 1!

*****************************************************************************
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 the order I used them in my classroom, so these lessons are in an order that spirals and gets progressively more difficult, but it is not necessary to stay in that order. Unit 4 was created a year later as “extra” lessons with more of my favorite books that I used throughout the year.

Included in this bundle, there is an "At-A-Glance" document for all 40 books in Volume 1! This download will help you see all of the skills covered in Volume 1 units if you’d like to “bounce around” within the units.

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

There is a Volume 2 and a Volume 3 for grades 3-5 to help prevent repetition of mentor sentence lessons among grades in the same school.
Check out what’s in Volume 2!
Check out what’s in Volume 3!


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
Second Grade

*****************************************************************************
Please remember, this purchase is for the use of one teacher. It is not intended to be shared. Please use the 'additional license' purchase if more than one teacher will be using it. Thank you!

*The mentor sentence lessons I have created are adapted from the ideas of Jeff Anderson. These lessons were born from the routine that worked well in my classroom, and the demos and examples I present are variations of Jeff Anderson's methods. This is not the only way to "do" mentor sentences in your classroom.*
