PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Mentor sentences are the perfect way to teach grammar and author's craft through examples of excellent sentences from your favorite read-aloud books! This video will show you what each day looked like in my classroom on the fourth week of school in my fourth grade classroom.

You can get the lesson you see in the video in isolation (along with other mentor text activities) by clicking HERE.

Grab my best-selling mentor sentences bundle, and you'll be set for the year!
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! :) 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 over 175 lessons with your favorite mentor texts for the upper grades! See ALL of the mentor sentences units for grades 3-5 HERE.

*****************************************************************************
WHAT ELSE DO I NEED?
There is a bundle of Interactive Language Arts Notebook Companions for all of the units! They include an interactive activity for each focus skill in the mentor sentence sets. 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 1 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!

*****************************************************************************
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

*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.*
