This 47-page resource includes close reading activities for five mentor sentences, from Michelle Cuevas's beautiful picture book, "The Uncorker of Ocean Bottles".
You will need a copy of the picture book to make the best use of this resource.
For each of the five mentor sentences, there are three graphic organiser choices, including opportunities for students to practice close reading mentor sentence activities, including: an invitation to notice, an invitation to name, an invitation to revise and an invitation to imitate the author's craft.
Please view the preview file for a sampling of the resource. The resource supports both traditional and functional grammar approaches to making meaning from texts.
All resources are for single personal or single classroom use only and are not to be distributed further. Multiple licenses are now available at TpT for a reduced price. No sharing of this resource is permitted through email, photocopying, internet groups/blogs, offline groups, school district or regional websites/servers, discussion lists, school websites/servers, or personal websites.
