 How to Teach the Paragraph is an ebook for $7.99. I know it sounds simple, but I struggled with how to teach my kids to write, especially the reluctant ones. What a blessing this book was in giving me suggestions and hints to get my students started. Geared for grades 3 and up you can utilize it whenever it best fits into your learning. They start by learning the parts of a good paragraph and memorize those parts. Then they will try to write a paragraph. 
After the basic paragraph is mastered this book will help your students improve the topic, and closing sentences. 
Practice will be key for learning to write a good paragraph and this book provides suggestion on topics to write about.

I felt this was a very reasonably priced program for learning to write paragraphs and essays. I love that it is not consumable so I can use it with multiple children. I did review the ebook copy and I am not really an ebook person. I did have hubby copy it off for me, but I personally think I would purchase the softcover book if you were interested in purchasing. My kids are wrapping up their summer hiatus here, and we will be able to more thoroughly examine this program with my 4th and 7th grader. I am excited to have the tools necessary to get them interested and successful in writing!.

As a member of TOS I received this program free in exchange for an honest opinion.

  1. I just wanted to stop by. I'm from the Planet Weidknecht Weekend Hop! I would love if you'd stop by too: http://justjennifer.net - I'm on my own domain now, and am waiting for my designer to finish up... so it's a little bare, but would still love to see you there :-)
