    I teach 5th grade and it just came to my attention that my students do not know how to write a 5 paragraph essay. I taught it last year briefly but want to do a much better job this year. I did not know I would be teaching writing (we are departmentalized) so I have no idea what to do.

    I want to teach a 5 paragraph essay format then slowly go into writing a research report. What are some websites, books, anything that helps?

    Do I do mini lessons on into sentences? I really have no idea what to do:confused:

    For each paragraph you should have TEXCS (Texas)

    Topic Sentence
    Explanation
    X-ample
    Concluding Sentence
