A traffic light offers a helpful way to think about paragraph structure in this reading and writing worksheet. The topic sentence is like the red light, where you stop to think about the main idea. The supporting sentences are like the yellow light, asking you to slow down and give details about the main idea. The closing sentence is like the green light that encourages readers to go on to the next paragraph. Learning about the writing process is especially important for students in year three and year four.
