Moving students from a single paragraph piece to a multi-paragraph piece can be tricky. This Rally Coach activity provides students the opportunity to practice writing a preview sentence for their introductory paragraph. Students are provided a t-chart planner and the topic sentence for an introductory paragraph, and then use the Rally Coach structure to practice creating a sentence that previews their big ideas.
A modeling page and teacher directions are included.
