*****************************************************************************
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 the order I used them in my classroom, so these lessons are in an order that spirals and gets progressively more difficult, but it is not necessary to stay in that order. Unit 4 was created to provide more nonfiction choices through the year.

Included in this bundle, there is an "At-A-Glance" document for all 40 books in Volume 2! This download will help you see all of the skills covered in Volume 2 units if you’d like to “bounce around” within the units.

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

There is also a Volume 1 and a Volume 3 for grades 3-5 to help prevent repetition of mentor sentence lessons among grades in the same school.
Check out what’s in Volume 1!
Check out what’s in Volume 3!


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
Second Grade
