Mentor sentences have gone DIGITAL
! This digital interactive notebook provides you with a paperless
option to mentor sentences. For this particular product, you have to seek out your own mentor sentences to add to the notebook.
What are mentor sentences? Mentor sentences serve as exemplar samples of great writing. Students use these to guide their own writing. Using sentences from REAL literature that students are reading instead of drills, drills, drills, is so much more engaging and memorable.
There are 26 grammatical skills
already included within the product. Many of these were inspired by Jeff Anderson's Mechanically Inclined
book. All you have to do is find sentences that go with the skills! Don't like the skills included? Change them up! Perhaps you've purchased mentor sentences from other sellers...you can simply add those sentences here to go digital and paperless.
The notebook is set up as a bell ringer
- Monday: Focuses on what they notice about the mentor.
- Tuesday: Label parts of speech and focus on a specific skill.
- Wednesday: Create their own sentences like the mentor.
- Thursday: Find sentences like the mentor in their own texts.
- Friday: Spiral review.
Stay tuned...I will be adding my own mentor sentences at some point!
