Product Details

Writing a strong persuasive paragraph can be tricky for elementary students! After modeling with the whole class and before having students try it on their own, I love having small groups work together to write their own persuasive paragraphs! Students love the high-interest prompts and enjoy working collaboratively.

To complete the activity, small groups work together to fill in the missing details, concluding sentence, and/or topic sentence on a graphic organizer before writing their own paragraph.

Use the provided prompts or use the blank graphic organizer to add your own!

This resource includes:

  • 10 graphic organizers with topic sentences already written
  • 4 graphic organizers with the concluding sentence already written
  • 2 graphic organizers with one detail filled in (more challenging for your stronger writers)
  • 2 blank graphic organizers
  • 2 final paragraph writing sheets
  • optional group reflection sheet
  • editable rubric in PowerPoint

Recommended Grade Levels: 3, 4

Number of Pages: 14 + editable PPT file

Supported Standards: Virginia English SOL 4.7; CCSS W.3.1 and W.4.1

"The writing prompts were perfect for my fourth graders! They were so engaged and loved discussing/sharing their writings." - Courtney

"I like how the graphic organizers have different parts filled in (instead of just giving them a topic). My students enjoyed this activity." - Kelli
