Product Description
Mentor Sentences are a game-changer! Students often know the basics of sentence and paragraph writing, but they struggle with sentence variety and sophistication in their writing. Not anymore with this Mentor Sentence resource!

This resource uses mentor sentences to teach sentence patterns (without all the technical grammar rules that don’t transfer into student writing). Students will learn to writing sentences with –ly and –ing phrases, appositive phrases, introductory dependent clauses, and parallel structure, keeping all this information in a handy mini-book that is easy to hold onto.

Included is a powerpoint of 30 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.
