    Today’s lesson is an introduction to writing a complete and organized paragraph.


    A paragraph is a group of sentences that focuses on one main idea. 


    Pick up a book and you are bound to see a paragraph; You can find them in places like websites, letters and more! 


    There are different parts to a paragraph just like there are different parts to a hamburger.  


    The fly is for you GRASPhopper.


    The first part of a paragraph is like the top bun of the burger. This is where you will write the topic sentence. This sentence introduces what the paragraph will be about.


    It’s time to write a paragraph about grasshoppers. First, I take out my organizer. Hmm, what do I know about grasshoppers? 


    I got it- Grasshoppers eat many different types of food.


    Now you give it a try.


    On your organizer, write a topic sentence about playgrounds.


    The next part are the supporting details. These are like the lettuce, tomato, and meat parts of the burger. You will write them after the topic sentence. Details are examples that support the main idea of the paragraph.


    Let’s see how this works. 


    I need to describe the different foods that grasshoppers eat. I’ll add the details to my organizer. 


    One type of food they eat are leaves. 

    They also like to eat flies.

    Another type of food  they eat is grass.

    These details support my topic sentence.


    Now you give it a try.


    On your organizer, write 3 supporting details about playgrounds.


    The last part is the concluding sentence. This is like the bottom bun of the burger. You will write it after the supporting details. The concluding sentence restates the topic sentence. 


    Let’s look at the topic sentence. Hmmm, how can I restate this?  I know, Grasshoppers eat different foods.


    Now you Give it a try.


    On your organizer, write a concluding sentence about playgrounds.


    The organizer is finished, let’s use it to write a complete paragraph on our writing paper.   


    Now you give it a try.


    Don’t forget your organizer!
