04_Description = Students will follow a format to write a five sentence paragraph explaining what they would wish for if they had three wishes. It must be a thing, a happening and a place to visit. Completed essays will be posted on the WWW. No html knowledge is needed.

05_Month = February

06_How_Long = 5 months

07_Objectives = When 4th - 6th graders are asked to write a paragraph, the result is often a few short, choppy sentences beginning with the, an, a, or I. This activity guides students through the writing process for a successful five-sentence paragraph with varied sentence beginnings. Repeating this process frequently with many, varied topics teaches students to use variety to create interesting paragraphs.
