Do you use Mc-Graw Hill's WONDER's program?
✐These mentor sentences are selected from the stories you are already reading! They support the weekly grammar skill you are teaching that week.
WHY MENTOR SENTENCES?
Students need to see great sentences to be able to write great sentences.
Mentor Sentences are short daily mini-lessons that weave instruction about grammar and conventions in the context of authentic literature. This resource provides grammar lessons in the context of writing which has been proven to be more effective than isolated skill worksheets.
Using a predictable routine, you scaffold your class to become more independent as the week progresses. They move from observers of good writing to imitators of good writing.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The mentor sentence process allows students to see models of great writing and the opportunity to dig deeper into what writers do. Instead of looking at sentences filled with mistakes, students are invited to notice an author’s style, craft, and use of grammar. These lessons do not replace writing workshop, but rather support it.
