Our writing goal in fifth grade is at least five great paragraphs on one topic. Even though we've been writing since the first day of school, I'm still having a difficult time conveying the conclusion paragraph. We've discussed relating it back to the topic paragraph and supporting paragraphs. We've talked about the conclusion being the ribbon that ties it all together (and other analogies). Can you all share your great ideas? Some of my kids still look at me as if I'm speaking another language.
