Meat and Potatoes: Details for Writing, Adding More Explanation

Unit 25: Beginning Paragraph Writing
Lesson 1 of 5

Objective: SWBAT choose three details from a brainstorm and write a sentence followed with an explanation or added idea that relates to the sentences they have chosen.

Big Idea: Details make your writing more interesting to read. To prepare them for paragraph writing, we start with a brainstorm of a topic, in this case a trip they took this summer. They choose three of those ideas to help create the body of their paragraph.
