Mentor Sentences are a FUN and ENGAGING way to teach students about grammar and writing! They model awesome sentences by favorite authors. I love using these in my classroom, and I am so excited to share this free lesson with you! Included in this FREEBIE: * 1 Mentor Sentence taken from the text The Relatives Came by Cynthia Rylant * 5 Day Mentor Sentence Lesson Plan with suggested responses * 1 Assessment with Answer Key
Write a story about this picture. Or use as a cause & effect prompt-- half the class writes a paragraph about about what caused this and the other half writes a paragraph or two about what the effects of this picture are. Then randomly match one of each together and read out loud. Kids love it!
