What is a Mentor Sentence?
(click on the title to watch a video)

Every two weeks our grammar lesson will focus on a "mentor sentence". The "mentor sentence" is taken from a piece of children's literature. The purpose of the "mentor sentence" is to provide students with the opportunity to learn from REAL authors. Students examine quality sentences and learn the mechanics of grammar, build fluency, and become better stronger writers.

During the first week, homework will focus on a spiral grammar review. Mentor sentences give us the opportunity to study several aspects of grammar repeatedly with each new sentence (a spiral review).  During the spiral review, students will focus on subjects/predicates, parts of speech, types of sentences, simple/compound/complex sentences, suffixes & prefixes, and homonyms.

During the second week, homework will focus on 2-3 key concepts where students can practice the skill an apply the strategies. The assignments for the second week will be assigned through the homework agenda listed above. There will NOT be a spiral grammar sheet during week 2 of the mentor sentence.
