Do you use Write Tools or Step Up to Writing model in your classroom?
This power point and practice is great for 1st and 2nd graders who are beginning basic topic sentences. This introduces simple declarative, number statement and question. The accompanying paper is to be used as you go through the PowerPoint whole group. The same three sample paragraphs are used for each sentence type. This allows students to see how any of the three would be sufficient for introducing writing.
I do one of each topic sentence as a model for my "I DO" practice, and they do one together as the "we do". Attached is also an exit ticket to track demonstration of learning.
