Teachers Pay Teacherswriting Hamburger Paragraph Planning One of the joys of teaching third grade is getting the kids ready for standardized testing insert a hefty amount of sarcasm here!
The Hamburger Paragraph Plan! I am blessed with a lot of lovely, creative writers, but on the whole, we really need to work on focusing our thinking: The structure of the Hamburger Paragraph Plan is: What is your favorite junk food? This was a great way to start, since they had already thought about it and shared it aloud with the class during Greetings and Question.
We began by working on the Hamburger Plan- one side was blank with labels and the other side had labels and lines for sentences. We started on the blank side with labels and planned it like so: Sorry it's a bit small, but the basic idea is that their answer to the question is on the top bun and their three supports are boxed in each of the middle layers.
I then had the kids add three bullet points of added descriptions using sensory images, similes, and comparisons to really make the support come alive for the reader. I modeled along the whole time with my own piece about cheesecake I should've chosen carrots ; We then flipped to the back to start working on changing their ideas into complete sentences.
They had two choices for the introduction sentence in green and they only had one choice for their conclusion sentence in red.
It also freed up their brains to focus on their supports, which was important for this first go-around. I didn't worry about spelling, just complete sentences and making sure we didn't have "broken record" writing- I had to explain records I never feel old until I have to start explaining these things more and more each year!
When they had their intro and conclusion buns written and their burger layers into descriptive sentences per layerthen publishing was the easiest thing in the world! Typically, I have them write in their Writer's Notebook, but for this example, we used the simple publishing page and it was perfect!
We thought of creative titles, added our name underneath, talked about indenting, and then just copied the sentences from our hamburger plan over to the published page Isn't this just lovely? The format is all there and she includes some great description on her own in complete sentences with a simple introduction and conclusion- the basics are down and now we can get into the work of making these more complex.
If you're like me, having a solid base makes it so much easier to then teach the complexities, especially with paragraphing.With a combined process and product approach, Writing to Communicate puts students on a fast track to clear and effective academic writing.
