Product Description
Opinion Version!!!
Paragraph of the Week is making my students amazing little writers!

Updated April 2017! I added 21 Would You Rather...? prompts.

This structured, consistent approach allows students to focus on their writing skills and not the directions. Each week has the same format with a new topic. It is a 4 day format so you can send it as homework or keep it in the classroom. It is successfully used both ways at our school.

Day 1 is gathering their thoughts and ideas. Then, they select the 3 favorite reasons to include in the paragraph.

Day 2 includes developing the reasons into sentences. They also add a supporting detail (or 2) for each important reason sentence.

Day 3 is for writing the introduction and conclusion sentences. Students also reread the day 2 sentences to revise for word choice and grammar.

Day 4 allows the student to write the final draft and check for convention errors.

All 21 topics are personal so your students are automatic experts on the content. There is no research to be done to complete these paragraphs. All the content comes from their personal experiences and thoughts. There are no wrong answers here.

This package also includes a blank editable set of pages for you to personalize your own topics, a rubric, a parent letter for homework, a completed sample for the parents, and a completed sample for you.
