This resource has examples, references, and a model essay to teach students the basics for writing informational paragraphs and essays with the teacher's guidance. Students will learn to differentiate informational writing from other genres.
Share the color-coded paragraph example about landforms to model a topic sentence, supporting details, and a concluding sentence. There's even an example outline and essay about the American black bear to model and share with your students as they advance in their learning.
With your guidance, students start writing an informational paragraph with step-by-step directions, so they can learn how a paragraph is organized for this style of writing. Then they move on to writing a complete guided essay.
My students are stronger writers and enjoy writing using the resources provided in this package.
Included in this resource:
Enjoy writing with your students!
