Product Description
This paragraph writing resource bundle has everything you need to teach your students how to write a well-organized paragraph in any type of expository (non-fiction) writing.


This Resource Includes:
1 PowerPoint Lesson Presentation (27 slides, includes practice opportunities) - This highly animated PowerPoint lesson explains the necessary parts of a paragraph (topic sentence, details, conclusion sentence) and their function by comparing a paragraph to a burger. The topic and conclusion sentence hold everything together the same way a bun holds a burger together. The details are the meat. Without these three components, you don't have a burger (or a paragraph). The presentation also shows students how to improve their burger (paragraph) by adding "toppings". These "toppings" include adding questions, statistics, analogies, dialogue, and personal examples.
1 Student Notes Page - This page is perfect to place in their writer's notebook, and summarizes the key points in the presentation. There are parts for students to fill in during the presentation.
2 Paragraph "Cut-out" activities - "Build a Paragraph", asks students to cut out and glue sentences in their correct order. One of these activities is in the presentation and meant to be done as a class. The second can be done independently.
3 Paragraph Writing Practice Sheets (2 versions each) - On one version of this activity, students are asked to use the organizer to write a paragraph about the topic. The second version (optional) asks students to also include specific types of details that were taught in the presentation. Great for differentiation.
3 Writing Details Practice Sheets - for students to practice writing specific types of details, or "toppings". (statistic, personal example, dialogue, analogy, and question).
3 EDITABLE Templates so you can add your own topics/prompts to each type of activity included.



Why Use a "BURGER" to Teach Writing?
This analogy, or way of explaining paragraph structure, makes this concept easier for students to understand as it makes an abstract concept more concrete. I have had great success with this in my classroom. The burger analogy gives me something to reference all year during writing. When I say, "Where's your bun?" or "Don't forget your toppings!", my students know exactly what to do!
