I'd love a copy of your test

Clip to ScrapBook #2

since I'm working on this too! Something I tried last year seemed to help - haven't had to do it yet this year. I wrote a paragraph one sentence at a time on sentence strips. I gave each group of 3 kids one of the strips and they had to work together to put the paragraph together. The supporting details had to figure out how they were connected, and then they chose which one was the topic sentence. It's interesting because I thought finding the topic sentence first would be easier!
