    STAAR Writing 2 Week Test Prep (Texas Teaching Fanatic)

    Topic Sentences: Students work in pairs and pass around paper bags with facts about one topic stapled to it. The students read the facts and write a topic sentence for a paragraph about their facts. Everyone writes a topic sentence for each bag. The next day, read topic sentences and discuss which ones would be the best.

    FREE SCRAMBLED PARAGRAPH Lesson~ This fun, print-and-go activity contains a scrambled paragraph with 8 sentences that can be put together only one way. Students use transitions and inferential clues to assemble paragraphs containing a title, topic sentence, three details with support, six (6) sentences, and, a closing sentence or clincher. Like training wheels on a bicycle, working with scrambled paragraphs helps students understand how to write logical, organized paragraphs!
