The Name Jar – Mentor Text and Mentor Sentence Lessons for grades 3-5


* Open the preview for more details! *


By request, I have pulled The Name Jar lessons from Volume 2 for those who love using mentor sentences and mentor texts and wanted to add just this one lesson to their rotation. PLEASE do not purchase this if you already own all of the Volume 2 sets! (If you do, you already own all of these activities!)

In this pack, you will receive a mentor sentence lesson for the book, The Name Jar by Yangsook Choi. You will also receive an interactive notebook activity to review/teach common and proper nouns. There are seven reading and writing ideas suggested, and three activities with answer keys provided to use during reading time (summarizing, using text evidence for inferences, and character traits). There is also one writing prompt given with a brainstorm page provided. Finally, you will also have contextual vocabulary activities to use with the book, which are not yet released in the larger bundle!

These lessons are included in:
Volume 2, Unit 1 Mentor Sentences

Volume 2, Unit 1 Interactive Language Arts Companion

Volume 2 Better Than Basal: 30 Reading and Writing Mentor Text Units
