    5 fingers paragraphs

    I have my kids hold up their hand and tell them it is their guide to writing a paragraph. The thumb is the topic, then tell-tell-tell (supporting ideas), and thinky-pinky(the conclusion.)My kids can pretty well chant Topic, Tell, Tell, Tell, Think as the outline for their paragraphs. I sometimes have them draw around their hands and write their paragraph or plan on the thumb and fingers. I like it because they always have the format for a paragraph in hand! (Sorry--just had to!)
