The three parts of a paragraph and the function of each is highlighted in this logical order sequencing activity.
Lower level students often have an easier time understanding logical order when they can see the sentences arranged in different ways. Allowing students the time to manipulate the sentences/sentence chunks into order better allows them the opportunity to visualize complete paragraphs with logical order.
This activity reinforces the idea that both the topic sentence and concluding sentence are just one sentence each, while supporting sentences make up the main body of a paragraph. In addition, students will more easily see how a concluding sentence is similar to a topic sentence when they can first compare them side-by-side.
Students will learn more about each of the three parts of a paragraph while completing the sequencing activity/worksheet and then apply what they have learned/reviewed in their own writing.
