Product Description
This paragraph packet pairs perfectly with the book, The Best Part of Me, written by Wendy Ewald in which school-aged children write short poems and stories about what they consider to be “the best part of them.” After reading the book, have students reflect upon their best body feature. This will allow them to then start brainstorming and outlining a paragraph! Publishing papers for most body parts are included in this pack, but we have also included a publishing page with no clip art as we always like to take pictures and print in black and white as featured in the book itself.

We have found that this paragraph also makes a perfect Mother’s Day gift, with a conclusion sentence of; “Thank you mom, for my _________.

Our paragraph packets are designed to guide primary students through each step of the writing process while implementing the Step-Up to Writing method to help them create a well-developed paragraph that includes a topic sentences, 3 detail sentences with further explanation, and a conclusion sentence. Students will also be guided through the revision and editing process and participate in a peer conference for further feedback before publishing.

Our paragraph packets are perfect for younger students who need more guidance in whole or small group settings, while their structure helps support more independent writers as well.

The format of our paragraph packets will remain the same each month so that students may continue to grow more independent in their writing through familiarity with the layout.

Each prompt will include the following:
**Brainstorm
**Outline/Plan
**Rough Draft
**Revise and Edit Checklist
**Peer Conference
**Publishing Paper
**Rubric
In addition:
**Descriptive Prompt will include a craft
**Research Prompt will include QR codes to specific kid-friendly websites

Each month will include 6 prompts that cover the following types of writing that primary students need to know according to CCSS:
**Opinion/Persuasive
**Informative/Research
**Narrative
**Descriptive
**Letter
**How-To

Monthly Paragraph Packets will be released as we finish them.
