Perfect Paragraphs!

We are working one writing 5 sentence paragraphs in class.

An organized 5 sentence paragraph looks like this:

A. One Topic Sentence

B.  Three  Supporting Ideas

C. One Closing Sentence or  Clincher

There are some great (2 min.) videos to help students understand the Topic Sentence  and Closing Sentence on this link:
