PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Everyone has heard of the Hamburger Paragraph, but what about the Hamburger Essay?

This is a 23 page guide/lesson plan for turning the Hamburger Paragraph into the Hamburger Essay.

It includes handouts and organizers for the students, directions for the teacher and links to other websites (why reinvent the wheel?) as well as a rubric based on the CCSS for 4th and 5th grade writing. An additional feature is this pdf document has the reference URL's embedded in the document for easy connection to the internet. JUst click and a new window will pop up so you can view the additional resources together. This guide can easily be broken down into several 30 minute lessons over several days.

I have four children myself and I have found that the basics are best. When writing or performing a speech "tell them what you are going to tell them; tell them; tell them what you told them."

The pages enclosed elaborate on the necessary elements for writing an expository 5-Paragraph-Essay. It includes introduction, 3 body paragraphs and a conclusion with details and examples on writing each of the elements.

Introduction: Hook, General statements and Thesis statement
Body paragraphs: Topic sentence, Supporting sentences and
Transitions
Conclusion: Restate thesis, Summary sentences,Clincher

Also included is a sample rough draft essay that students can identify the elements and find the mistakes.

This guide is meant to simplify essay writing and emphasizes that every 5 paragraph essay has something in common: a simple structure for writing.

Once this skill is mastered, their writing skills can soar.
