This resource is meant to support students in the often difficult process of paragraph writing. As a Resource Specialist, I have constantly struggled to find a writing resource that scaffolds paragraph writing for all of the different writing genres: Summary (Fiction), Summary (Nonfiction), Narrative, Informational, and Opinion/Persuasive. As students become familiar with the steps, they become more and more independent in producing paragraphs of all writing genres. For my 5th grade students, by January we were using this resource to write 5 paragraph essays. I have even had students use them in their general education classes to find more success with writing. I am absolutely in love with this resource and am so proud of the success my students have had with this resource.
Pair this resource with my Writing Notebook Anchor Charts to provide even more resources and supports for students.
