February Super Sentences and NEW Perfect Paragraphs

For those of you who are MORE organized than me and prepare materials weeks in advance - I wanted to let you know that I have finished the February version of my Super Sentences. They are currently available for purchase in my TPT store for $1.50. Of course, there is always a FREEBIE included for those of you who only have time for a page a month... Grab yours HERE. But that's not ALL...

Since I have been receiving so many positive comments from my followers about the Super Sentences  - I created a NEW PERFECT PARAGRAPH pack as well. It is  fashioned after my SUPER SENTENCES. Instead of Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How... these templates have students either creating a Topic Sentence, 3 Detail Sentences, and a Closing or... an Introduction sentence followed by sentences beginning with First, Next, Then, and closing with Finally.

When they have finished completing the template they will have a 5 sentence paragraph!

Each page in this 30+ page pdf file features a different picture/theme to inspire students to write perfect paragraphs...just like the Super Sentences. Find it in my TPT Store.

Click HERE to download your FREEBIE.
Let me know what you think... and please pass on any ideas you have for improving this new format.

Enjoy your three-day weekend!
