Product Description
Need a strategy to help your students dig deeper on details in their writing? Teaching kids how to take their writing to the next level with an elaboration technique called "nitty-gritty details" has helped my students enormously.

This resource includes the following:
~ A printable explanation of informative paragraphs, complete with a model paragraph
~ A printable explanation that points out the difference between details and nitty-gritty details.
~ Printable practice exercises

Nitty-gritty details fit in nicely with any paragraph writing strategy that you may currently use, such as the "hamburger" method.

This resource is a nice complement to my Informative Research Paragraph writing assignment, available at Informative Researched Paragraph FREEBIE

It also supports targeted work on CCSS ELA Writing Standards 4.2.b and 5.2.b as students develop the topic with facts, definitions, concrete details, quotations, or other information and examples related to the topic .

I hope you find the resource useful and that it provides your students with increased understanding of elaboration.
