I have to do an "accordion paragraph" graphic organizer-method paragraph, starting with topic sentence, then three transitions/details, then conclusion, and I don't know what that means!

  • Writing -

    An accordion paragraph starts with a topic sentence. It tells what your paragraph is about.

    Example: I like my best friend because she is fun, kind, and listens to me.

    Then you need to write a sentence showing how she is fun. The next sentence should explain how she is kind. The next sentence should be about how she listens to you.

    Be sure to use transition words like "first, then, finally."

    The conclusion states your topic sentence in slightly different words.
