Writing Mini Lesson #7- Clincher and Hamburger Model

Now that you have finished Mini Lesson #6- Relevant Details, it is time to finalize the paragraph with a CLINCHER!  FYI-  This lesson is for ending a paragraph not a concluding paragraph for the end of an essay.  That will come later!

1.  Share the slide to explain clinchers.  They need to close the door to their paragraph!!!



2.  Students need to take notes about clinchers on the door.  Then glue the left side of the door to the notebook.  Swing open the door and write the clincher to their paragraph started in lesson 5-6.



3.  Have your students use the HAMBURGER MODEL to put their ideas from the previous lesson together.  Topic sentence from lesson 5, relevant details from lesson 6, and today's lesson on clinchers.  When they are finished, have them write the paragraph out in their writing section of their notebook.

4.  If your students need more practice, give them examples of paragraphs without the clincher.  Have them create the clincher!  This is a great homework assignment to revisit the day's lesson.


5.  Now that the paragraph lessons are complete, why not give an assessment?  



I hope you enjoyed this lesson!  Lesson #8 will be about TABLE OF CONTENTS!

Do you need a complete NO PREP Paragraph Unit?  There are anchor charts, interactive notebooks pages, practice worksheets for each of the following:  Complete Sentences, Fragments, Run-Ons, Topic Sentences, Relevant Details, and Clinchers!  As a Bonus- Indents lesson, hamburger graphic organizer, and assessment!


ROCK 'N' WRITE!!!
