happycc Posted January 18, 2012 Share Posted January 18, 2012 Some of us have to follow the CA 4th grade writing standards (mostly those who are homeschooling through a charter school) which includes teaching the kids how to write multiple paragraph essays. This is also for those who want to teach their child to write a 5 paragraph essay. But I found this link and it has been helpful. It lays everything out pretty clearly. I also used the How to Write a Paragraph as well. In fact I suggest you start out with that one first. I would suggest printing out all the examples as well. It does say it is for Special Needs kids but I don't find it at all for special needs kids. I think it would work perfectly for non special needs kids. In fact I showed it to my es and she said it was perfect. I looked at WWS but my kids were not ready to work on it independently yet so this is the best I could find for our situation. Best of all it is free. http://specialchildren.about.com/od/...s/ht/essay.htm http://specialchildren.about.com/od/.../paragraph.htm http://specialchildren.about.com/od/...s/ht/paper.htm HTH!
