Product Description
These are two of the planning page formats that I use for my classroom when teaching how to write informational essays. Please note, I use the following terms interchangeably: thesis, controlling statement, and claim.

In the beginning of teaching students how to write informational text, I use main idea sorts to model what an outline should look like. You may be interested in my main idea sort, that is found in my store, or by clicking on the following link.

FSA Writing Practice: Grouping Related Information Logically

Essentially, you could use both of these products to write a complete essay.

PLEASE NOTE: I do not encourage formulaic writing. My students are not limited to a specific number of paragraphs that they must write for their informational essays. However, for the sake of these activities, I have included 3 main ideas with 3 supporting details. Eventually my students will learn how to create these outlines / planning pages on their own, without the use of the organizer. I also use in my classroom the tree map.

LAFS.5.W.2.5 With guidance and support from peers and adults, develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach

Introduce a topic clearly, provide a general observation and focus, and group related information logically; include formatting (e.g., headings), illustrations, and multimedia when useful to aiding comprehension.
Develop the topic with facts, definitions, concrete details, quotations, or other information and examples related to the topic.
