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 has some learning disabilities and this really breaks down into baby steps how to form a paragraph. It is very very good! I also found the teacher's guide to add more structure and explanation that is needed for some things. I really like it.
