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!

WHAT ELSE DO I NEED?

Every mentor sentence unit has a companion interactive notebook to help you teach and/or review the skill for the week!

You might also be interested in the Volume 3 Mentor Sentences Modifications ADD-ON Pack which will support students with disabilities, English as a Second Language, or slow writers.

You’ll also love to use these mentor texts in reading and writing, too! Make sure to get BETTER THAN BASAL: Complete NO PREP Reading & Writing Units for 40 Popular Mentor Texts!

Check out the Biggest and BEST Bundle for Volume 3!

If you prefer, you can buy this bundle in hard copy form! You will still receive the files digitally as well!

*****************************************************************************
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.

There is a free download of the "At-A-Glance" for all 40 books in Volume 3! This download will help you see all of the skills covered in Volume 3 units if you’d like to “bounce around” within the units.

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

There is also a Volume 1 and a Volume 2 for grades 3-5 to help prevent repetition of mentor sentence lessons among grades in the same school.
Check out what’s in Volume 1!
Check out what’s in Volume 2!


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.*
