Paragraphs are so basic that sometimes we as teachers want to zoom right through them and get on to essays. But good essays are made of good paragraphs, and the more paragraphs you have together, the more important it is to organize your thoughts properly. For this reason, I’ve built a few paragraph organizers to help you focus on the important pieces (transitions, introductory sentences, etc.). I’ve intentionally chosen topics that won’t be hard for kids to write about (there’s no “right” answer) so the content won’t distract them from focusing on proper paragraph construction.
The first one is about their favorite game to play. For the supporting sentences, kids could write about 3 aspects of the game, 3 reasons they like playing, etc.
