Mentor sentences will engage your students in grammar and writing instruction! I hope this bonus Christmas lesson with a focus on compound sentences will be useful to you if you are implementing Mentor Sentences, or are looking to try them in your classroom!

EVEN BETTER!! Grab the Santa’s Jobs Mentor Text Unit for the books How Santa Got His Job and How Santa Lost His Job to go along with this mentor sentence, and you’ll be set for the whole week in reading, writing, and grammar!

**Explicit directions for mentor sentences are NOT included in this bonus lesson! This is meant to be an addition to the units people already have, or a way for you to see how Mentor Sentences work! Thorough step-by-step directions are included in the FIRST units of the Volume 1 Mentor Sentence Unit or Volume 2 Mentor Sentence Unitproducts for sale.**
