PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Basics of a Paragraph

This multisensory lesson is available to support students with writing challenges. Many students, whether classified, or unclassified, struggle with writing. Actually, some students may completely "melt down" when required to write. For these students, many have memory and processing difficulties. These students benefit from the use of models, examples, and having the writing activity broken down into parts to be successful. Further, this lesson has an "editor's check list" so students develop writing skills by looking at their classmates writing work.
As we all know, writing is a process, and students develop skills at different time periods. So, if you want to support writing development, this is a great lesson. Parents can help out at home, and be the "editors" and have conversations to explain their feedback to their child.

The packet includes the following:
Page 1-Title
Page 2 - Informational page
Page 3 - Introductory page of the lesson with a breakdown of the parts of a paragraph; and there is a model so students can refer to the model as support
Page 4 - Paragraph practice that includes topic possibilities, and a graphic organizer to complete a brainstorming activity
Page 5/6 - Graphic organizer to write each part of the paragraph
Page 7 - Writer's Check list
Page 8/9 - Reflection pages for student to consider the activity beyond the "classroom setting." Students benefit from reflective thinking in order to grow academically. In this lesson students are encouraged to consider and think about their writing skills development.
