WHAT ARE MENTOR SENTENCES?

  • Love the idea of doing mentor sentences with your middle school students, but don't know where to start?
  • I have loved the idea of mentor sentences for my 6th, 7th, and 8th grade English students, but I wanted a resource that everything laid out for me, was aligned to the 6th-8th grade CCSS ELA Language Standards, and also used sentences from novels that my middle school students know and love to read. This resource does just that.
  • This resource was designed 100% based on the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) Language standards for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders.
