This product is teacher-approved and student-tested. The need for this product developed after observing our 4th graders struggle with expository writing. Also, knowing that this is the first year they are exposed to expository writing and tested on it made it even more important to us. Not only will students practice noticing and/or writing good topic sentences, but it will also allow them to see well supported expository paragraphs. You will find 3 different activities in this unit:
-Umbrella versus Raindrop Sentence Task Cards
-For students who need a little more support
-For students who are a little more independent
