I am so excited to announce that there are OFFICIALLY mentor sentences for every elementary grade! Grades 3-5 had them first- and they now have two complete volumes to choose from... then second grade got them, and these can be implemented into first grade with some scaffolding... but when I released mentor sentences for EARLY emergent readers (kindergarten, ELL, and maybe first grade if you've got some low babies), I had people asking for lessons that come between the K and 2 lessons for their emergent readers. I was happy to oblige! :)
Just like always, I used some of my favorite books that I loved reading to my kiddos when I taught first grade!
Let's take a peek inside the two units- the Kindergarten Unit and the Kinder-First Unit- so you can see the differences in skill levels! (Both of the lessons you'll see are freebies in my store!)
I hope this post helps you see how valuable mentor sentences can be for kindergartners and first graders, too! It provides balanced literacy opportunities where students will be reading and writing every day, and your students will have fun at the same time.
You can get ten weeks of lessons for either set:
I'd love to hear how these are going in your classrooms!
