Product Description
strong>Mentor Sentence Centers: Spelling, Grammar and Word Work in Context for the story Thank you, Mr. Falker by Patricia Polacco

Now you can use your Mentor Texts and Mentor Sentences in your word work activity centers. Take a model sentence from your weekly read aloud Mentor Text and use it as a basis of teaching spelling rules, grammar concepts, writing concepts, and printing and cursive writing practice. Students will complete the same centers weekly with different texts and all you need to do is print a few pages at the beginning of the week and you are set ready to go. I have included student work pages as a guide but the activities are easily done in student notebooks which further reduces your amount of prep required to implement in your classroom. Now you can teach spelling, grammar, and cursive writing in context and related to what you are already doing in your classroom. (your admin will be so impressed !!)

This Package is for use with the story "Thank you, Mr. Falker" by Patricia Polacco.

It includes...
4 Quick Centers Activities
1) Grammar - Notice the Parts of Speech
2) Spelling Sort - Sort words from the sentence, story, and other texts to discover spelling rules (review of VCe and VCC words - to prepare for learning about suffixes in future lessons)
3) Imitation Sentences - Write a similar sentence with a focus on changing parts of speech.
4) Cursive Writing/ Printing Practice - Using letters and words from the sentence students will practice printing or cursive writing.
