It’s important for our children to understand the rules of paragraphs and topic sentences.  Someone that writes well tends to do well in educational endeavors.  Later in life, someone that writes well has many career opportunities.  Writing well–writing in an organized manner, matters.

A well-organized paragraph supports/develops a single controlling idea.  Paragraphs help the reader understand the organization of an essay and its main points. Paragraphs help the writing flow.  The topic sentence is the first sentence in each paragraph that explains the content of the paragraph.

Work with your children so they understand the importance paragraphs and topic sentences.  Maybe they can write something fun….because fun learning is forever learning.
