• Be a Paragraph Detective!!!

    writing cat


    Every paragraph needs:
    • Topic Sentence - tells what the whole paragraph will be about

    • Supporting Details - each sentence must give details to support the topic
    sentence

    • Closing Sentence - either restates the topic sentence or tells how you feel about
    the topic

    ***Remember to INDENT the first sentence too!
