FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Paragraphing {Free!}”

by Darlene Anne
4th - 8th Grade

Paragraphing is a challenging concept for middle grade students to grasp. If you’re like me, you hate struggling through rough drafts that resemble a GIANT wall of words! 

To solve that problem, I started teaching mini-lessons exclusively on paragraphing. By the time we complete the scaffolded instruction, I feel confident that my students can use their notes to break their writing up into logical paragraphs. 

I've included the following:
★ a suggested lesson
★ two practice worksheets
★ a mini "poster" of rules for display
★ marble notebook sized rules for students to keep as reference

Download, make copies, sit back & relax! :) Because this lesson is READY-to-GO!  

Please leave feedback to let me know what you think of it!
