Product Description
Interested in mentor sentences but not ready to commit to a list of read alouds? You’re in luck!

This download includes printables that will guide you and your students through mentor sentences. And the best part is: You get to choose the mentor sentence!

Where can I find mentor sentences?
1) The read aloud chapter book you are already enjoying as a class
2) A nonfiction text you are reading in another subject area
3) A picture book you would like to share at your weekly meeting time
4) A student’s own “just right” book (I would only do this once you have your routine down and students can work well independently.)
5) A student’s own writing (Can you imagine the self esteem of the kiddo who gets their writing nominated?!)

Mentor sentences provide a weekly routine to authentically boost writing skills and grammar understanding. Consider one way to use them:

Day 1 - Hand out the mentor sentence, read fluently and take observations
Day 2 - Label the parts of speech
Day 3 - Revise the mentor sentence by adding your own excellent words
Day 4 - Mimic the mentor sentence with your own original writing
Day 5 - Assess with a short quiz

This download includes:
1) Editable printables for the 5-day routine listed above (*For ease of use, you can print the pages with margins that will suit a 3-ring binder nicely OR you can print the pages with larger margins in order for students to cut and paste in a composition notebook.)
2) Two editable assessment options
3) Directions for editing

*****In order to edit this file, you must have the Keynote application found on a MAC computer. ******* You will be able to choose your font, font size, and font color from your computer’s options. (I’ve included links to my favorite free fonts.) You will also be able to add and move text boxes. You will NOT be able to change graphics or existing writing.

*Upload the preview to get a closer look and see if this is right for you!
