Five paragraph essays have never been easier to teach! This instructional unit contains everything you need to take your students from sentence writers to five paragraph essay authors!
I love the process of teaching writing to my students. They begin the year with short, incomplete sentences but by the time I’m done with them, they can write excellent five paragraph essays. I have had many teachers ask me to share my process for teaching the five paragraph essay. Until this point, I haven’t had any guides or worksheets to share with them because it was just an internal knowledge for me. So, I took the time to create this guide and detail my process for teaching writing. You will find everything you need to teach and assess five paragraph essays! I hope this product is helpful to you in your classroom and that your students benefit from using it!
