    Paragraphs

    I've just started talking about paragraphs with my kids. We began by looking at a simple paragraph (clear topic @ topic sentence) and discussed the three main elements (indentation, topic sentence, group of sentences about that main idea). I then gave students a graphic organizer with five circles - the main idea in the center, other stemming from it. They then picked a topic, jotted it in the center, and wrote ideas related to it in the other sections of the web. Then they just needed to put it all together, making complete sentences out of their notes and writing it out in paragraph form.
