This product makes teaching introduction paragraphs simple! Included is a power point presentation (15 slides) that teaches students how to write an introduction paragraph for informational writing. A "fill in the blanks" note-taking sheet is also included...a handy reference for students to keep in their binders.
I've used this approach for several years, and my fourth grade writers feel successful in writing succinct opening paragraphs. Excellent for test prep!
Check out my other listing for writing conclusion paragraphs. It uses the same prompt as this one for continuity:
