Previously in Writing Mini Lesson #13, your students set goals for their writing. Now that the prompt has been introduced and students brainstormed ideas for the prompt, it is time to look at Graphic Organizers that fit well for your expectations. The one I chose for fourth grade knowing that I want them to create a 5-paragraph essay is directly below. It sets up the essay perfectly including introduction, topic sentences, details and conclusion. I find it to be very effective.
