  • Each day’s slide includes a fun picture, a national holiday, and a model (sometimes called mentor ) sentence.

  • Each day’s slide also comes with student reflection sheets. They’ll write down the things they notice or like and then try to write a similar sentence themselves.

What if you don’t have time for this?

We know that you’re juggling a multitude of responsibilities and tight timelines. The beauty of this resource is its adaptability, which means it can seamlessly fit into even the most hectic schedules.

Ideas to help make sure you’re not sacrificing other learning opportunities that your day may already be full of:

Morning Routine: Use the slide show as a morning starter, setting a positive tone for the day. This 5-minute activity can lead to improved focus and set the stage for more complex tasks later in the day.

Transition Tool: Use the model sentence when transitioning between subjects or after recess. It serves as a calm and educational bridge, helping students shift gears effectively.

Closure Activity: End your day or a particular subject with the day’s model sentence. This allows students to leave with a valuable takeaway, pondering the sentence structure or theme.

Optional Recording Sheets: While the recording sheets offer a more in-depth exploration, they aren’t mandatory. The verbal discussion of the model sentence, especially when done consistently, is still a potent tool for enhancing language skills. Use the recording sheets when you feel your class has the time and energy for a more extended activity or as an optional homework assignment.

Group Discussions: If individual recording seems time-consuming, split students into groups once a week to discuss a selection of sentences from that week. They can then present their favorite sentence and its imitation to the class.

Great for 3rd, 4th, 5th, or 6th grade!

  1. Stacey T.

    I tried this with my ESL students. But I think it would be a wonderful small group resource to use when working on fluency and expression. There is a picture that also supports inference skills.

  2. Foretta’s 4th Grade Material

    I have the January version which I started with. I do like the resource, and it is very worth it. I just need to get more comfortable with different ways to fit it into my schedule.

  3. Lauren W.

    Another great collection of fun holidays, and a wonderful presentation unpacking the information contained in the sentences. Thanks!

    They absolutely loved it. I will use this over and over again.

  5. Alicia Chew

    Love this for morning work and review time! The students are engaged and it’s great for them to notice more things about the sentence.

  6. Jennifer D.

    These sentences have become a tremendously, fun way to look at writing and for students to adjust the sentence and write their own. The information has been fun to read and share and the variety of questions and ways to look at each sentence has inspired some wonderful writers. Thank you!

  7. Heather Manelli

    The resource is very well laid out and engaging to all students. My students are really struggling with writing complex sentences and this is a great opportunity to practice.

    I love using this resource – the pictures/artwork are beautiful and support the slides. I change what I want to work on each day- as it has lots of choices. I have used different months and they are all so wonderful.
