We've been working on finding the main idea of passages and paragraphs within a text. We've also been writing sentences and are ready to write an informative/explanatory paragraph on a topic (Common Core W.2.2 and W.3.2). I'm going to use Margaret Wise Brown's The Important Book as a model for our writing.
The kiddos will pick a topic and write their own "Important" paragraph using the handout below.
I've also used this as a model for writing an opinion paragraph.
