Print and teach! These writing templates and teaching suggestions will help guide you when teaching young children how to write a paragraph. They start with a circle map, continue with a tree map and turn all their planning into sentences that form a paragraph. Model it as a class activity, then set them out on their own to choose their own topic. I created this for a tutoring student and she really enjoys it! I have included a circle map (brainstorming), tree map (planning) and lined pages for writing the paragraph. You can start with those as you teach the steps. Then, you can move to the sheet that has them all on one page.
