Oh ! That pesky, little Paragraph !

Amazing, how 5 sentences can cause such confusion and frustration !

My years of teaching 100s of students how to compose a coherent group of related sentences on a topic led my students to teach me how they needed to learn this very important skill.

So, I created a step-by-step guide with Practices for helping students conquer this somewhat challenging piece of writing.

I've included graphic organizers for:

  • selecting a Topic,
  • collecting Notes,
  • writing the Sentences,
  • editing those Sentences,
  • and completing the Final Copy.

The Editing Process includes:

  • Sentences Stretchers with Word Lists & Activities
  • Punctuation Reminders
  • Capitalization Rules
  • Spelling Helpers, Rules, Patterns & Activities

You can use this Tool:

  • as part of your Lesson Plans
  • as a Reference in your Writing Center
  • as additional inserts for your student's Writing folder
  • as repeat & review activities
  • as independent, partner and/or small group study & instruction

Thank you in advance for your purchase.

Please let me hear how effective and/or engaging this Literacy Tool is for you and your students.
