    Hello...I'm teaching how to write paragraphs in my second grade class right now. I basically try to teach them that they need a topic sentence, body sentences, and a closing sentence. I have a worksheet that I like to use which compares the paragraph to a bologna sandwich...top bread is the topic sentence, bologna and toppings is the body of the paragraph, and the last slice of bread is the closing sentence. Before we actually go into comparing the two I like to ask what each student would put on their sandwich. Then when we do the comparision we talk about the fact that each person like different things on their sandwich, so each paragraph is going to be different. If you can get all of the details in three sentences (or you just eat bread and bologna) it is okay--just make sure that is all you want to say to get your point across.
