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. ★

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:

-The Golden Rule By Ilene Cooper

proper nouns

-The Name Jar By Yangsook Choi

proper nouns

-Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun By Maria Dismondy

possessives

-When Lightning Comes in a Jar By Patricia Polacco

vivid verbs

-Firefly Mountain By Patricia Thomas

vivid verbs (personification)

-14 Cows For America By Carmen Agra Deedy

subjects and predicates

-Those Shoes By Maribeth Boelts

conjunctions in compound sentences

-The Memory String By Eve Bunting

compound sentences

-The Adventures of Spider:How Spider Got a Thin Waist By Joyce Cooper Arkhurst

compound predicates

-The Spider and the Fly By Mary Howitt

Similes

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 at the beginning of the school year (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

*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.*
