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!

Making sure students feel represented in culture, gender, race, religion, and family structures is so important. This unit is just what you need to integrate some books into your lessons that also celebrate diversity and help your students see themselves in the story.

These can be used as either an add-on to your year of mentor sentences, or used to get started with mentor sentences in your classroom. They do NOT have to be done in the order they are presented in this unit, although I did choose several foundational skill lessons in case you do start the year with this set.

Not familiar with mentor sentences? Read all about them here!

If you need more proof that the numerous volumes of mentor sentence curricula created by Ideas by Jivey are a best practice in the classroom, download the case study! The download presents the data collected over the 2016-2017 school year in the form of a case study.

*****************************************************************************
WHAT’S INCLUDED?
I walk you through each day's lesson for 10 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.

Please download the preview file to see the layout.

There is a 9-page introduction in this FIRST unit with pictures included of how I use mentor sentences in my room (VERY detailed, day-by-day), followed by 10 lessons for the following books:

-Red: A Crayon’s Story by Michael Hall
possessives
-The Sandwich Swap by Queen Rania and Kelly DiPucchio
adjectives
-Ruby’s Wish by Shirin Yim Bridges
proper nouns
-The Patchwork Quilt by Valerie Flournoy
adverbs
-The Water Princess by Susan Verde
compound predicates
-One Green Apple by Eve Bunting
ordering adjectives
-The Rainbow Tulip by Pat Mora
compound sentence
-I Dissent by Debbie Levy
gerunds
-Mr. Lincoln’s Way by Patricia Polacco
appositives
-Nadia’s Hands by Karen English
prepositional phrases

I chose books that would be in most personal libraries or school media centers. All of these are personal favorites of mine!

*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.*
