Take Your Time
One of the special education teacher challenges is having enough time to complete your entire curriculum during the school year because you often have to slow down to teach harder concepts.
Here are the next steps of writing the five-paragraph essay conclusion:
5. Once students have written their first sentence, they need a sentence for each one of their body paragraphs. They may want to write down their topic sentence, but they need to come up with an original sentence. Again, do these one at a time, walk around and make sure everyone is on track, and then go on to the next sentence. Allow students to help one another. Here is an example of the way a paragraph about the dog and his tricks might look so far:
"My dog knows all three tricks now. She learned to sit the first day because it was the easiest trick. When I taught her to lay down, she always wanted to get up before I said it was time. Finally, whenever I tell her to come, she runs to me and gives me kisses."
6. Another special education teacher challenge is the very last sentence of the five-paragraph essay conclusion. Just make it general and on topic such as, "Once she masters these, I'll teach her to heel." Observe students as they write their last sentences.
7. Ask students who are comfortable to read their conclusion paragraphs to a peer buddy.
