Are you struggling to get your students to understand how to write an organized and structured paragraph? This hands on learning approach will ensure your students learn the structure of a paragraph in the most engaging way!

Print Version:
Students cut out the scrambled sentence strips provided then match and paste them to the appropriate place on the graphic organizer.

Digital Version:
Students drag and drop the scrambled sentence strips provided and match them to the appropriate place on the digital graphic organizer. The digital version is self-checking. If students successfully organize the paragraph, they will see a mystery word or phrase related to the topic.

Extension Activity:
Students write their own paragraph, scramble it up, and have a peer try to organize it using the graphic organizer.
