PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Paragraph Color Coding and Outlining Packet by The Teacher Next Door contains 10 worksheets, keys, and complete Teacher Notes to help your students understand the organization of a paragraph and to help them create “T-Chart” outlines.

This packet is a nice addition to the Step Up to Writing Model but can be used in any classroom. I can't say enough about how much I love teaching basic paragraph writing using this method. When kids understand the basic recipe for a paragraph, their writing becomes so much stronger. Color coding and outlining has really helped my students be able to craft much more organized and cohesive paragraphs.

I do love the topics included in this packet too. I think they're ones your kids will enjoy reading.

Paragraph topics to color code include informational text (a key Common Core concept) and include:

Insects

Snorkeling

Morro Bay

Columbia

My Cat Lola

The Constitution

Three Branches of Government

I excited to find paragraphs already aligned for Step Up to Writing. It is exactly what I was looking for. I would have liked to have had an answer key with it.
On  December 14, 2013The Teacher Next Door answered:
Oh, I am so surprised that you mentioned not having answer keys as they are included. To make sure, I re-uploaded the file and checked and they are included. Please check again. Thanks!
