Teacher Winnie stands in front of a smart board.
Teacher Winnie is in her twenties, with straight brown hair in a half do. She wears glasses and a blue Homework Zone T-shirt.
She says HI, I'M TEACHER WINNIE, AND
THE HOMEWORK ZONE,
I HAVE A FUN WAY TO SHOW YOU HOW
TO WRITE A PERFECT PARAGRAPH.
LET'S GO TO THE SMARTBOARD.
NOW, WHEN WE WRITE PARAGRAPHS,
IT'S IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER
SOMETHING AS EASY AS THE
HAMBURGER BECAUSE WHEN WE WRITE
A HAMBURGER PARAGRAPH, THAT
HELPS US MAKE A PERFECT, EXACT
PARAGRAPH THAT WE WANT TO SHOW,
AND I'LL SHOW YOU WHAT I MEAN.
EVERY BURGER STARTS OFF WITH A
BUN AND THAT'S HOW WE CALL
OUR TOPIC SENTENCE.
SO, OUR TOPIC SENTENCE FOR THIS
PARAGRAPH IS ALL ABOUT THE
BURGER, SO LET'S READ
IT WITH ME.
The sentence reads "The perfect hamburger is hard to make. You need to make sure you have everything just right."
Winnie says NOW SOMETIMES, TOPIC SENTENCES
CAN HAVE MORE THAN ONE
SENTENCE, BUT FOR THIS CASE IT'S
GOING TO BE THE FIRST TWO.
SO, THAT'S GOING TO BE THE TOP
OF MY BURGER; KIND OF LIKE MY
AND THEN AFTER, TO THE SECOND
PART OF THE BURGER, WE HAVE KIND
OF THE CONDIMENTS, THE LETTUCE,
THE TOMATOES, AND THAT'S WHAT
WE CALL "DETAIL NUMBER 1."
WE WANT TO ADD SOMETHING
DETAILED TO OUR TOPIC.
SO, MY DETAIL IS...
The detail reads "I like to add ketchup, mustard, and cheese with fresh tomatoes and lettuce."
Winnie says EASY TOPIC, AND THAT'S
A GREAT DETAIL TO ADD.
IT'S KIND OF LIKE ADDING YOUR
LETTUCE ONTO YOUR HAMBURGER;
A LITTLE DETAIL.
AND THEN FINALLY, YOU MIGHT
WANT TO ADD A "DETAIL NUMBER 2."
SO, FOR EXAMPLE...
The detail reads "I like my meat nice and juicy and fresh off the frill. When I bite into it, I like it to fall apart and get all messy."
Winnie says SO, THAT IS KIND OF LIKE THE
MEAT OF MY BURGER, AND
THAT'S DETAIL NUMBER TWO, RIGHT?
AND FINALLY, WE WANT TO SUM UP
EVERYTHING BY HAVING A CLOSING
SENTENCE, KIND OF LIKE THE
BOTTOM OF A BURGER.
SO, OH, LOOK AT THAT. WE WANT TO
ADD THAT TO PART OF OUR MEAT,
THERE YOU GO.
OKAY, AND FINALLY...
The closing sentence reads "If you make sure you have everything ready to make your burger, your burger will be the best ever!"
Winnie says AND NOTICE HOW THE LAST PART OF
OUR SENTENCE KIND OF GOES ALONG
WITH OUR TOPIC SENTENCE.
BECAUSE OUR TOPIC SENTENCE IS,
"HOW DO YOU MAKE
THE PERFECT BURGER?"
AND OUR CLOSING SENTENCE SAYS,
"IF YOU FOLLOW EVERYTHING WE
MENTIONED IN THE MIDDLE, YOU
WILL HAVE A GREAT BURGER."
SO, THAT'S A HAMBURGER PARAGRAPH
AND I HOPE THAT HELPS YOU TO
MAKE A BETTER PARAGRAPH.
I'M TEACHER WINNIE.
