This engaging writing template will guide students to create a paragraph about the community that they belong to. This activity can function as a stand-alone project, or as part of a larger unit about communities and neighborhoods.
The first page allows students to brainstorm and choose a community to write about. The structured sentence frame paragraph assists them in writing a complete paragraph about the community they have chosen, considering the definition of a community, why they belong to this particular community, and why the community is important to them. The second page provides a template for a final paragraph and accompanying illustration.
In my classroom, I have used this template to help students through the steps of the writing process to create a final product that meets the objectives of the project. I have found it to be especially helpful for struggling writers or English Language Learners. I hope you and your students will find it engaging and helpful, too!
