Last week I finally finished and posted my Mentor Sentence Starter Pack! I am so excited about this because it is going to be a great resource for me and my kids this year. I know that Amanda and I have talked about Mentor Sentences before (click here to go to our posts), but I am really happy to share these with you. :)
They really enjoy analyzing the mentor sentences. I think they love the "Invitation to Revise" day the best because they get to be real authors but in a safe way. What I mean is, for my kids who struggle with writing, when we do mentor sentences, they feel safe and comfortable because they know they are only having to focus on one sentence. When they get to revise they are so proud and eager to share how they have become authors and changed the sentence all by themselves. Even if they are just adding one word, like an amazing adjective, their hands shoot up to share. I love seeing them so engaged! :)
The Starter Pack I created has 10 COMPLETE Lesson Plans with labels, sentences, suggested responses, and assessments. I chose sentences from some favorite fiction and nonfiction books.
