With these hamburger paragraph templates, you can teach your kids the main ingredients of a solid paragraph. Start with the top bun, representing the topic sentence. The topic sentence explains what the entire paragraph is about. Then move on to the juicy supporting sentences/details: The tomatoes, onions, ketchup, mustard, bacon, and beef (100% grass-fed) patty. Finally, complete the paragraph with a bottom bun, aka conclusion sentence, relating back to the topic sentence.
Now, before your children start writing their paragraphs, be sure to explain the importance of relating information and connecting ideas. Without logical structure, a paragraph simply doesn’t – hey, look, a butterfly. I wonder how George Washington managed to fight the British and invent peanut butter at the same time. I think my scuba gear will arrive in the mail today. Since nothing else is made in America anymore, why should the President be?
