Paragraph Parts, continued


The Goal: 

To feel successful writing paragraphs, we need to start with paragraph parts.  


Remember the Lego analogy?   Think of learning about paragraphs as similar to starting with the directions for a Lego kit.  We wouldn't want to start with the Lego brick first, would we?


We need to see what the "directions" say, so we can use these essential "bricks" correctly.


Once you know what the directions say, you can successfully pick the correct Lego brick for the job.  The same is true for paragraphs and sentences.  Once you know the parts of a paragraph, it becomes easier to move on to sentences, because you can see what parts are needed to construct the proper paragraph part. 


1.  Watch the video to see how paragraph parts make up a paragraph.


2.  Don't worry, in the next part of this lesson, we will discuss how each part (topic sentences, supporting details, transitionsand conclusion sentences) will fit together.
