Product Description
Mentor Sentences - Semicolons and Colons

Time for Punctuation Power!

Students often know the basics of sentence and paragraph writing, but they struggle with common punctuation rules which add sophistication to their writing. Not anymore!

This resource uses mentor sentences to teach Semicolons and Colons (without all the technical grammar rules that don’t transfer into student writing). Students will learn to use semicolons to join sentences and with connecting words and colons to note what follows and in conventional situations, keeping all this information in a handy mini-book that is easy to hold onto.

Included is a powerpoint of 28 stimulus pictures to give students inspiration for their writing.

I've been using this method for over 10 years and it works beautifully! Students love seeing the added sophistication in their writing.
