    Stoplight Paragraphs: this anchor chart gives students the knowledge they need to write a well developed paragraph. Not only does it act as a reminder, but the following activity gives students the opportunity to "cut" up a paragraph into the topic sentence, supporting details, and closing sentence. This can also be a reading strategy for the junior grades, as more informational text can be better understood by finding the thesis and supporting details, and conclusion. @amandarogers21 @kc2102
