This is a great paper form for helping young learners to organize a paragraph with a topic sentence, 3 details, and a closing sentence. The form helps them to understand that they need each part to make a clear paragraph. This form can be used with any topic. A great way to get kids started is by having them write about a favorite and the reasons they feel that way (think: book, animal, movie, character, season, food, holiday).
I made it a goal to practice these at least once a week or every other week to keep honing skills. After a few practices... kids could quickly and easily use the graphic organizer to put their thoughts in order. After repeated practice and use, most children were able to then begin to not use the form and add more supporting details.
This was also great for writing assessments that the districts I worked in had the children do. Since they were familiar with a format of a paragraph, many of them could write out their ideas in bullet points with topics.
