These collections of 10 additional mentor texts per grade level for grades 1–5 help you extend the lessons in Patterns of Power Plus. The sentences used in the Lesson Displays have been derived from these anchor texts allowing you to add further context to your grammar instruction by using them in other classroom reading.


If you purchase the Anchor Text Collection including a Patterns of Power Plus  kit you will get the 10 mentor texts and a Patterns of Power Plus kit for the grade level you selected. Each Patterns of Power Plus kit contains: 

Teacher’s Guide
The Teacher’s Guide provides all the planning and information you need to implement daily 10-minute grammar and convention lessons in your classroom.

Lesson Display Flip Chart
The Lesson Display pages act as the visual support for your lessons. This easel-style, dry-erasable chart is ready to use in a small group or to be projected for the entire class and displays the content needed at each phase of the Patterns of Power Plus lessons. 

Student Notebooks
The Patterns of Power Student Notebook provides a structure for students to capture their conversation and learning as they work through the invitational process and develop their understandings of grammar and conventions. These notebooks give students a record of the conventions and grammar lessons they accumulate over the year, as well as a reference point to revisit for clarification. Includes 25 notebooks. (Also available as a separate purchase in 5 and 25 packs.)

Focus Phrase Cards
To save valuable time, these essential focus phrases are preprinted on sturdy cards for easy display once the pattern that aligns to the focus phrase is established.
