Topic Sentences and Conclusion Sentences: The bundle contains materials for 4 days of writing lessons. The first two days focus on writing Topic Sentences, and the final two days zero in on writing parallel conclusion sentences.
It contains the four following resources:
1. Topic Sentences PowerPoint:
This 28-slide PowerPoint focuses on identifying and writing appropriate topic sentences to introduce a paragraph. A matching 4-page matching companion handout
accompanies this PowerPoint.
After 5 introductory slides, it follows this format:
Even-numbered slides present a paragraph with a missing topic sentence.
Odd-numbered slides present a multiple choice question asking which is the best topic sentence for the previous paragraph. (The answer is provided along with an explanation)
*Slides 22-28: Students write their own topic sentence for the planner shown.
2. Topic Sentences Practice Worksheets:
Students get several opportunities to practice writing topic sentences with this 9-item worksheet.
3. Conclusion Sentences PowerPoint:
This 43-slide PowerPoint contains the same paragraphs that were in the Topic Sentences PowerPoint, but in this presentation students are taught how to write Conclusion Sentences that mirror the topic sentences previously written. A list of conclusion transiiton words are included. A matching 4-page matching companion handout
accompanies this PowerPoint, as well.
4. Conclusion Sentences Practice Worksheets:
Students now write conclusion sentences to accompany the topic sentences they wrote on the previous set of worksheets.
5. Teacher Notes:
I explain how I intend to use these materials over the course of 4 writing lessons.
