Description

Tuesday, September 11, 2001... we will never forget.


I incorporated a mentor text in all three of my curriculum volumes to share the week of September 11, but I know some teachers like to spend more than one week in remembrance.

I pulled all three weeklong units of mentor sentences, interactive grammar pieces, reading activities, writing prompts, and vocabulary lessons from Volume 1, Volume 2, and Volume 3 to create this bundled unit.

I suggest beginning the week before September 11 with The Man Who Walked Between The Towers, teaching with Fireboat the week of September 11, and then finishing with 14 Cows for America in the following week.

Because many of you already own one of these three sets with the volume that you regularly use, I have priced this resource with that in mind.

*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.*
