"My students really grasped this concept when using the hamburger. It was a lot of fun for them and I enjoyed teaching it!" -Emma S.

"Just what I was looking for when introducing paragraph writing! The students loved using the organizers." -Emma N.

"Great resource to help my students organize their thoughts and then organize their writing!" -Peaches and STEAM

"Everything you will need is in this package. This will be so helpful to teach my students how to write a paragraph. Love it!" -Alison BoagSoalcito

I added a color and blank and white page to the TpT Easel Activities tool if you would like to try a digital version with your students. If you haven't tried this yet, it puts a digital overlay on pdf pages so they can be typed on. You can also make your own version if you would have picked a different page. The craft won't work digitally, of course, but you can send it home or save until we are in person again.
