So you're looking for a way to model paragraph structure with fun, engaging content?
This mini-lesson is exactly that. After reading one of Aesop's fables, students engage in story discussion, complete a paragraph guide where they supply the missing content for the paragraph, and then retell the original story from a unique point of view. What fun students have with the story and its accompanying writing activities!
