Category Description for Paragraph Book Series:

Book One is geared toward teaching students how to write an instructional paragraph using the FNTF formula: First, Next, Then, Finally. The book first describes the How-to paragraph, gives examples, and has students dissect paragraphs using multiple choice and short answer questions. Once students are familiar with the purpose and style of a How-to paragraph, they make their own using provided prompts. Students then learn how to edit and format paragraphs with instruction given on margins, editing marks, and more. Students then edit sample paragraphs. The book then provides various lessons for using correct capitalization, punctuation, subjects, and verbs. Thought content of the paragraphs is then covered and students gain practice in reviewing if paragraphs make sense, correcting ones that don't, and making more of their own paragraphs. Once students have become familiar with reading, writing, and editing paragraphs, the last chapter of the book instructs students on how to write a whole How-to essay using the same step-by-step process they have learned for paragraphs.

Book Two in the series continues to teach the FNTF method for writing paragraphs, only this time looking at: Writing the Paragraph that Tells a Story. It begins with a review of Book One, covering especially all of the editing steps. Then, in lesson one, students are introduced to paragraphs that tell a story, or narrative paragraphs, and the differences between factual and fictional story paragraphs. The next few lessons teach about using transition words to go from one idea to another, subjects (or the person and the point of view of a paragraph), the right verbs to use and when to use them,

My son used to be the most reluctant writer in the world! Using standard writing curricula he was simply overwhelmed by the thought of putting his thoughts on paper I bought this book along with the student book because it seemed to take a different approach than other programs we'd used Instead of starting big -- writing stories biographical sketches etc -- "The Paragraph Book" breaks down the skill of writing into small chunks and teaches the child how to use a formula in order to write a simple paragraph Using the "First Next Then Finally" approach my son was able to write a simple 4 sentence paragraph and by adding additional "Thens" the paragraphs became longer This program not only teaches the child to put sentences together in a logical way this program also pays close attention to formating punctuation and editing The child makes cue cards which they use to edit their own work Then in later assignments they go back to earlier paragraphs they've written and they lengthen and strengthen their work We've used Paragraph Books 1-4 and we love each and every one of them My once-reluctant writer gained confidence in his writing skills and he's even started writing his own stories which I never thought he'd do The skills he learned from these books have been easy for him to carry over into other subjects There's no more struggle to get him to write a paragraph about anything! The teacher guides are essential because they contain all the answers to exercises and quizzes as well as the quizzes themselves and worksheets and charts that the student needs to complete his assignments You absolutely need both the teacher's and student's books for this program But even so this is a truly invaluable program and one I highly recommend!
