PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Did you buy the First Ten Weeks Mentor Sentences and realize you must have the rest? This bundle is for you! Mentor sentences are the perfect way to teach grammar and author's craft through examples of excellent sentences from your favorite read-aloud books! Mentor sentences can absolutely be done with first and second graders, too! Teachers will just need to provide a lot more scaffolding and guidance in the lower grades than they would with the upper grades. This bundle is just what you need to implement mentor sentences in your classroom for the rest of the year. I created these with second graders in mind, but it has been successful with first graders as well! This bundle does not include explicit directions of how to implement mentor sentences in your room- these directions are in the First Ten Weeks Mentor Sentences Unit.

WHAT’S INCLUDED?

I have bundled the last THREE of my Second Grade Mentor Sentence Units, saving you $4 if you buy the bundle! You'll be set for the whole school year! Here are the links to each unit so you can see what is in this bundle: SECOND Ten Weeks: Mentor Sentence Unit, THIRD Ten Weeks: Mentor Sentence Unit and FOURTH Ten Weeks: Mentor Sentence Unit.

I walk you through each day's lesson for all 30 weeks- all the work is done! I've even done all the thinking for you when it comes to revising and imitating! :) Just think, what a deal- less than $1 per week! Each lesson includes the teacher sentence page, the student sentence page, a lesson plan page with possibilities for all 4 days, and a quiz aligned with CCSS with answer key. I have also used handwriting lines on the quiz to help students with proper letter formation.

As a former first and second grade teacher, I used to LOVE reading these books, so I know many of you do, too! They are definitely some of my favorites. I chose books that would be in most personal libraries or school media centers.

*****************************************************************************
HELP ME PLAN!
You don’t need to do all of the mentor sentence lessons in the order they come in the units. When I created units 1, 2, and 3, I put them in an order that progressed in difficulty, so these lessons spiral, but it is not necessary to stay in that order. The first three units are more seasonally appropriate for beginning, middle, and end of the year, and then Unit 4 was created with “anytime” books that can be used throughout the year.

There is a free download of the "At-A-Glance" for all 40 books in Second Grade! This download will help you see all of the skills covered in the units if you’d like to “bounce around” within them.

*****************************************************************************
WHAT ABOUT OTHER GRADE LEVELS?

Mentor Sentences can be done in ALL grades! Please tell your teacher friends about mentor sentences for their grade:
Kindergarten & ELL (Early Emergent Readers)
First Grade

There are TWO volumes for grades 3-5 to help prevent repetition of lessons and books within the same school:
Volume 1 for Grades 3-5
Volume 2 for Grades 3-5


*****************************************************************************
Please remember, this purchase is for the use of one teacher. It is not intended to be shared. Please use the 'additional license' purchase if more than one teacher will be using it. Thank you!

*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.*
