At this time of year we start working on Folk tales and Fairy tales, so I chose The Three Snow Bears by Jan Brett.
We started by reading and enjoying this wonderful book. Then, during Writer’s Workshop time we started talking about mentor sentences.
They liked the story about my having a mentor teacher to help show me the way when I was a new teacher (they had a hard time believing I was ever new). They got the concept pretty quick, so I showed them the sentence and invited them to notice things about the sentence. They noticed a lot!
|A polar bear family had just started to eat their delicious soup. Yum!|
The last day of our mentor sentence adventure the kiddos were to write their own sentence modeled after the mentor sentence. It was a lot of fun to see what the kiddos came up with!
|The flock of birds were flying south for the winter.|
|A third grade class had just started to read in their dictionaries.
My kiddos did an amazing job with this mentor sentence! I am so glad that I got to try this out! I will definitely be using these again…a lot!
and, your kiddos can use their wonderful new sentence writing skills using my newest product:
