This week we're learning the art form of a well crafted paragraph. We'll be using paragraphs as the building blocks for the rest of our writing units throughout the year. A great paragraph is like a hamburger. It has an introduction or topic sentence and a conclusion sentence on either end. It's filled with juicy details that teach us all about the topic. This week we wrote our own paragraphs and took some time to "grade" other paragraphs with a rubric. We have lots of suggestions!
