Mentor Sentences Daily Practice Bell Ringers
This listing includes 10 weeks of bell ringers that will help your students practice the four basic sentence types: Simple, Compound, Complex, and Compound-Complex as well as dialogue, author/text references, subject-verb agreement, and possessive apostrophes.

Why use mentor sentences? We’ve all done it. We write a horribly constructed sentence and then ask students to fix the mistakes. This works if students know what good writing looks like, but many of my students do not know what good writing looks like, so I have made it my mission to show them.

Now, instead of working with incorrect sentences, my students read properly written sentences, “notice” or make observations about those sentences, imitate the sentences, and then find examples in their own reading.

Over the last two years, my students have become better writers and better readers.

**The great thing about purchasing now is that this is a growing bundle. I have over 20 weeks of bellringers planned. As I add new sets, you'll receive them at no extra charge (just check your 'purchase' page on TPT).

Here's what I have in the works:

Appositive phrases
Items in a list
it’s vs. its
who’s vs. whose
affect vs. effect
there vs. they’re vs. their
parallel structure
pronoun antecedent

And more!!

**Each week has a cover page and then daily assignments to guide them through the different sentence types. This will make your bell ringer process easy and create routine and structure.

Grab these bell ringers now and lock them in for a great price!
