topic paragraphs

Hi everyone,

We have gone from writing paragraphs to 5 paragraph essays, and I can not get my kids from using the same topic sentence that they were taught in lower grades.

Hi my name is ______________________ and I am going to tell you about....

I have done many lessons on topic paragraphs, but when they get a writing prompt they always use this.

Any suggestions on getting them out of using this EVERY TIME they write?
