PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Many of us have discovered that SENTENCE IMITATIONS are a great way to teach sentence structure and help students revise their writing. I’ve done the work for you! This product contains 10 sentences from popular adolescent literature along with imitations that show students how to use commas in a series effectively.

The student activity has mentor sentences and sample imitations with space to practice. Also included is a one-page list of the mentor sentences to use alternatively as formative assessments, models for student writing, a reference for building warm-ups, or examples for comma rules.

Both products are provided in a .PDF format and an editable Word document.

Texts include THE OUTSIDERS, TANGERINE, PROXY, THE GREAT GREENE HEIST, HATCHET, and more.

Tip: Create an anchor chart with a mentor sentence. As students work, place their imitations on sticky notes underneath it and have them notice other students' work. They continue to amaze me each year!
