5 (five) Sentence Paragraph Graphic Organizer / Teach your student how to write awesome paragraphs!
In the state of Texas students are tested on composition in 4th grade. As a former 4th grade teacher it would had been awesome if my students came to me with knowledge of how to construct a nice paragraph. I currently teach 2nd grade and I have used this graphic organizer with them and it worked like a charm. I would say this graphic organizer can be used in grades ranging from 2nd grade all the way up! All grade levels! Great for ESL students! :)
I suggest pairing it with mini lessons on introductory sentences, supporting details, and then concluding sentences. During the mini lesson use expository text to show examples, consider constructing a paragraph as a whole class on the board, and keep the focus on composition and not on grammar. I would spend at least a whole week with this graphic organizer. The goal is to get students writing 5 sentence paragraphs without the help of the graphic organizer!
