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. ★ The quizzes are included as printables and also digital-classroom-ready, provided as Google Slides. ★

types of sentences

I chose books that would be in most personal libraries or school media centers. All of these are personal favorites of mine! Ideally, this unit would work best in November, December, and January (based on the books especially), but it could really be started at any point.

If you want to get all of the sets now to save money, you can buy the BUNDLE FOR THE WHOLE YEAR!

HELP ME PLAN!

You don’t need to do all of the mentor sentence lessons in the order they come in the units. When I created units 1, 2, and 3, I put them in the order I used them in my classroom, so these lessons are in an order that spirals and gets progressively more difficult, but it is not necessary to stay in that order. Unit 4 was created to provide more nonfiction choices through the year.

There is a free download of the "At-A-Glance" for all 40 books in Volume 2! This download will help you see all of the skills covered in Volume 2 units if you’d like to “bounce around” within the units.

*****************************************************************************

WHAT ABOUT OTHER GRADE LEVELS?

There is a Volume 1 and a Volume 3 for grades 3-5 to help prevent repetition of mentor sentence lessons among grades in the same school.

Check out what’s in Volume 1!

Check out what’s in Volume 3!

Mentor Sentences can be done in ALL grades! Please tell your teacher friends about mentor sentences for their grade:

Kindergarten & ELL (Early Emergent Readers)

First Grade

Second Grade

Please remember, this purchase is for the use of one teacher. It is not intended to be shared. Please use the 'additional license' purchase if more than one teacher will be using it. Thank you!

*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.*
