This is a set of informational passages to help EL students with the concept of writing a paragraph with a topic sentence, details, and a conclusion based on a prompt from a text.
There are 8 different topics:
Each passage has 4 different pages with different concepts on each page (Write a Topic Sentence from a Prompt, Find 3 Details, Write a Paragraph based on the text, and Comprehension Questions.
This set is meant to be taught in 4 parts. The class will focus on the topic sentence writing aspect first. When the kids have confidence in this (or after they have completed all 8 passages), you move onto the next concept, finding 3 details. Repeat the process from the first concept for parts 2, 3, and 4. This will help with fluency as well!
**Most passages fit between 1st and 2nd grade
