Hamburger paragraph

  1. 1. How to Write a
  2. 2. Top Bun Introductory Sentence The introductory sentence introduces the reader to the topic of your paragraph. Try to make it exciting! On warm summer days, I love trying to catch butterflies. I have so much fun running around in my backyard chasing after the pretty butterflies that go zooming by! If I am lucky enough to catch one, I never keep it for very long. After all, butterflies belong in their natural habitat. I sure can’t wait until next summer so that I can grab my net and

  4. 4. Be sure to… n) ( Elaboratio A good paragraph includes details that DESCRIBE or TELL ABOUT the main points or reasons. Details should be “delicious” or interesting. When you write a hamburger paragraph, compare your details to all of the yummy parts of a hamburger such as: *Lettuce *Tomato *Cheese
  5. 5. Again, your elaboration should describe or tell about your main points. They should stick to the topic. Which detail doesn’t quite belong? I really love my brother! His name is Jeff and he is super funny. One of my favorite things to do with my brother is play video games. He always beats me! Sometimes my sister cries at night. Maybe my brother will play a video game with me tonight!
  6. 6. How would a hamburger taste if it had ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, pickles, lettuce, tomatoes, barbecue sauce, Swiss cheese, spicy cheese, and olives on top? Too much, right? A writer can add too much detail to a paragraph as well. Paragraphs should be about 5-8 sentences long. If your paragraph is pages and pages long, you will eventually lose the interest of your reader.
  7. 7. I have a kitten named Simon. I bought him at a pet store over the summer. He is really cute and fun to play with. Simon is gray and white. His nose is black instead of pink! Simon’s favorite thing to do is bug me. All day long, he follows me around and chases after my feet. Sometimes I wish that Simon would just take a nap. It seems like he was born to stay awake forever and ever! I feed Simon Friskies Kitten Chow. He really likes it. Whenever it is time to eat, Simon rushes into the kitchen and slides across the floor. He is so silly. I sure do
  8. 8. Remember: A good seventh grade paragraph should be about five to eight sentences long. My favorite school lunch is chicken nuggets with mashed potatoes. One reason why I love this lunch so much is that it tastes so great! I also love being able to smell the yummy nuggets hours before it’s even lunch time. The creamy mashed potatoes and gravy just slide down my throat. I can’t WAIT until the next chicken
  9. 9. So far we have learned that a hamburger paragraph needs a top bun or INTRODUCTORY sentence. The introduction should introduce the reader to your topic. We also learned that good paragraphs contain three to six supporting sentences that tell more about the introductory sentence. These main points, examples, or details can be compared to the ingredients of a hamburger, such as the lettuce, tomato, cheese, and hamburger patty. But what’s missing? Hmm…
  10. 10. Bottom Bun Concluding Sentence The bottom bun of a hamburger helps hold all of the ingredients together. It works with the top bun to keep the meat, cheese, tomato, and lettuce from falling on the floor! The concluding sentence of a paragraph helps hold all of the sentences together! It works with the introductory sentence to keep the details from falling apart. The concluding sentence should be interesting and let your reader know that you are finished writing. It wraps everything up!
  11. 11. Now you know exactly what it takes to cook up a delicious hamburger paragraph!
  12. 12. Now it’s your turn! • Using the informative text “Fish Cheeks,” create your own hamburger graphic organizer for an important paragraph in the text. • Make sure to fill in all necessary hamburger parts of the paragraph – don’t leave out any of the important details!
