Gleam and Glow – Mentor Text and Mentor Sentence Lessons for grades 3-5


READ all about how I incorporate this text into the classroom to maximize teaching time, and get an additional free download for the book!

I have pulled the Gleam and Glow lessons from Volume 3 for those who love using mentor sentences and mentor texts and wanted to add just this one lesson to their rotation. PLEASE do not purchase this if you already own all of the Volume 3 sets! (If you do, you already own all of these activities!)

In this pack, you will receive a mentor sentence lesson for the book. You will also receive an interactive notebook activity to review/teach making comparisons. There are seven reading and writing ideas suggested, and three activities with answer keys provided to use during reading time (finding evidence, describing a character’s trait, and defining a sentence with figurative language). There is also one writing prompt given.


These lessons are included in:

Volume 3, Unit 4 Mentor Sentences

Volume 3, Unit 4 Interactive Language Arts Companion

Volume 3 Better Than Basal: 40 Reading and Writing Mentor Text Units
