This is a bundle of my Writing Introductions Minilesson and Activities and Writing Conclusions Minilesson and Activities files.
I created these minilessons to go along with my Introduction Expert and Conclusion Conqueror writing badges, which help “gamify” and motivate students to write more. These two badges encourage students to write introductions and conclusions for their pieces. You could also use this product without the badges to teach about writing introductions and conclusions. The first lesson covers writing an introduction with a hook and a topic sentence. The second lesson covers writing a conclusion with a concluding phrase, restating the topic sentence, and adding an ending "hook." Both follow a gradual release approach.
This product includes projectable pages for the minilessons, practice activities to complete with a partner, and pages to introduce independent practice.
Here are the two products in this bundle:
