Posted by Eileen Miller on September 19, 2012 at 12:20 AM

My son is six years old and is writing paragraphs containing three sentences:  the topic sentence, one middle sentence, and a conclusion.  Here is a list of some of the most recent stories he's completed in his journal.  Remember to have your child write their paragraph first and afterwards, choose key words.  They may even come up with different keywords and bible verses than I have listed here.  You can use this as a guide if you wish.
