This free document is designed to help answer common questions that I receive in reference to the many mentor sentence packs that I have in my store.

Questions answered are:
I’m not sure if I want to “bite the bullet” and buy a bundle right away.
What options do I have?

Why are there three volumes for grades 3-5?

Do I have to do the packs in order? Can I mix and match units between the volumes?

My upper grades students have no grammar background knowledge.
What should I get?

I teach Kindergarten. Should I use early emergent or emergent?

I teach high first graders. Which pack should I get?

How can I integrate content with mentor sentences?

Can I use mentor sentences with author studies?

*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.*
