Mastering Mentor Sentences - Ideas By Jivey: For the Classroom

Mastering Mentor Sentences

Click on the grade level buttons to see the information:



*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.*

  4. I LOVE this idea of Mentor Sentences. I have a classroom full of ELLs, and they struggle with writing because they write the way they speak. I think Mentor Sentences will be a great way to expose them to awesome writing and make them more aware of what makes good writing, good. Thanks for sharing!

  6. I've seen them show up in my FB feed, with no spare time to follow up! I really love this concept! I struggle with using the Reading Street texts lately-no time, grammar is disjointed, and writing time...what's that? I think this is the ticket! Fab!!

    1. Everyday, every week! Consistency is the key! Once you get the routine down, it only takes 10-15 mins per day. :)

  8. Where do I get the activity to go with the Mentor Sentence? I have the mentor sentence units and the reading/writing unites but I can't find the fun pie with the adjectives. That would really help me correlate to my district's prescribed program. Thanks!
