Product Description
Mentor sentence instruction blends explicit instruction of grammar skills with hands-on sentence building and constructing. Students analyze sentences, learn new TEKS-based grammar skills, revise and create sentences following specific structures.

This product helps students connect grammar instruction to their own writing and testing situations! Teach grammar authentically and effectively through the use of mentor sentences and a thoughtful approach to conventions instruction.

Mentor Sentences Notebook includes nine weeks of grammar instruction and all the tools you'll need to make it stick! These tools have made a difference in my students' writing! I know they'll make a difference in yours! By bridging the grammatical skills in context to revision and editing in a testing format, students will learn what's important about grammar instruction as well as how to apply it in a variety of contexts.

This is the second product in the series. The sentences and skill work in this product rely on students' understanding of lessons taught in the first nine weeks' unit. It is recommended that you begin with the first nine weeks unit (a focus on grammar) and then move on to this product, which includes a focus on punctuation and capitalization, and then the 3rd nine weeks, which focuses on spelling patterns and grammar review.
