Grow your Writers with this Mentor Writing Unit: Using Mini Excerpts Mentor Sentences. This is perfect for students in Third Grade, Fourth, & Fifth Grade! These are great to use to TEACH Author’s Craft and Grammar using Mentor Texts. I have compiled a set of 25 Mentor Texts to use to create this unit.

Mentor Writing Teacher Tips:

  • I usually make packets of these for my students to keep in their writing notebooks.
  • However, you can project the larger page with mentor excerpt on Smartboard or overhead. You can use as whole group (warm-ups, writing activity), teacher station, independent activity or partner activity.
  • I have provided the mentor text with a page of activities that can be used, or with the mentor text and the students have to notice things in the excerpt (such as: adjectives, punctuation, and more).
  • Many times we do one together as a class and they do the other independently where I can check their understanding.
  • I have them use the skills we focus on to strengthen their writing they are currently working on.
  • Mentor Writing Texts Used are Sentences from student's favorite novels and mini excerpts

Grammar Skills Targeted:

  • Adjectives
  • Verbs
  • Word Choice
  • Commas In a Series
  • Dialogue
  • Fragments
  • Punctuation
  • Capitalization
  • And More!
