This product was designed specifically with my 2nd graders in mind. Our district is wanting our 2nd-3rd grade students writing 2.6 paragraphs for the various types of writing aligned in The Common Core Standards.
After searching for the most perfect product that would break up this process into paragraph parts, I decided to create my own! Previously when teaching students how to write a paragraph, I started with brainstorming, then finding details, then an introduction and concluding statement. This takes a similar “chunking” approach but also allows the writer to use an example for each of the details he/she presents.
There is one prompt for narrative writing, one for opinion writing, and one for informative writing. For your convenience, I have included both primary and intermediate lines.
This is the St. Patrick's Day Edition of the 2.6 Paragraphs. I plan to do Spring, Summer, and specialty holiday units as well. Please keep your eye out for these units to come in the future!
Enjoy and happy writing!
