A proper closing sentence is paramount to concluding a solid paragraph or any piece of writing. Unfortunately, along with writing an opening, the closing is often the most difficult portion for a student (and adults) to write. Well, here at Wake Up Sunshine, I've already got you covered on Link-YHow to Write an Awesome Topic Sentence, so it made sense to create an easy-to-use and affordable guide for the closing sentence!
With the use of images, along with suggestions to implement, children are sure to improve at the task of ending their papers and grasping and bringing their writing to proper closure.
Writing a closing sentence is important throughout many grade levels. While the core standards are listed as 6th grade, this simple unit could be used anywhere from 3rd to 8th grade. It also comes with posters that could be printed off for the key variations of different closing sentence formats!
