My 5th grade students absolutely loved doing mentor sentences! These really made a difference in their vocabulary and their understanding of sentences structures.
This resource transformed the way I teach grammar. My students loved the predictability of the activities and every Monday would be excited to see what our new mentor sentence/text would be. Their grammar knowledge definitely increased and the quality of their writing greatly improved. I have since purchased more products by Jivey and will continue to use her products next year.
My students love mentor sentences. They love the repetition and independent nature of mentor sentences and the interactive read alouds of a different book each week.
Mentor sentences are a revolutionary teaching approach that goes beyond traditional methods. These lessons designed around model sentences selected from mentor texts allow students to dissect and understand the components of effective language use.
By integrating mentor sentences into your curriculum, you not only teach grammar in context but also inspire students to incorporate the focus skills, strategies, and structures into their own writing.
Transform your teaching by making grammar instruction both meaningful and engaging with mentor sentences.
