Parts of a Paragraph :: Teacher Resources and Classroom Games
After teaching & practicing writing with students, I have them write a paragraph on their own. On the day I return the graded paragraph, they all get to make a sub with only the parts of the paragraph they have in their graded work....no conclusion, no bottom bun :-) only one supporting sentence, only one condiment. It is a ton of fun to watch the kids make and eat their subs.
Graphic Organizers for Personal Narratives. I use a few different graphic organizers that have made a world of difference to my young writers. This week I'm happy to share with you some of the tools I use to help make planning and writing narratives that are focused, sequential, and interesting a bit easier for my students.
