For Grades 1-2Join For Free
If you're a 1st or 2nd grade teacher who is ready to throw out those scripted, boring lessons and transform your teaching with integrated practices and books your students (and you) love, then you've come to the right place!
Don't worry if you've only ever taught skills in isolation-
I've got you!
You know students need to read like writers in order to write like readers, and they need to make connections across the content in order to apply and transfer skills.
I want to show you exactly how I did this in my classroom!
I used magnificent mentor texts for reading, writing, grammar, and even science and social studies EVERY week-- and I never opened a basal.
This free course will not only give you the "what" and the "why" for using mentor texts, but it also gives you the "HOW" with detailed plans and activities that you can implement right away and get your feet wet!
Even if you've never used a mentor text for multiple lessons, the lessons I provide in this course plus tips, troubleshooting, and encouragement will give you the confidence you need to see how you can truly maximize your teaching time with mentor texts!
You will get an outline for the week right away, with more information about the importance of using mentor texts. Then, over the course of the next week, you will receive explicit lessons, student activities, explanations, reminders, and suggestions for the next day’s ELA activities. If you’d like to complete the activities with your students over the course of that week, you can! Or, you can “save” all of the lessons and implement them another week if it doesn’t work right away for your schedule.
Lessons, activities, explanations, and support… did I mention FREE? What are you waiting for?
