Writing Focus Skills: 

Last week we started the “Paragraph a Week” program. In this program students are given a weekly writing prompt to work on through-out the week. These assignments will be kept in their writing journals. I have provided the students with the directions and grading rubric for these paragraphs (they can both be found glued in their journals).   🙂

 

We are learning how to write a paragraph that has a topic sentence with a main idea, 4 supporting detail sentences, and a retelling concluding sentence.
