Don and Jenny Killgallons' bestselling sentence-composing approach has successfully taught upper-elementary students to write mature and varied sentences through imitating C.S. Lewis, Jerry Spinelli, Suzanne Collins, Gary Paulsen, J. R. R. Tolkien, Christopher Paolini, Rick Riordan, J. K. Rowling, and many others. Now, in this worktext, the Killgallons take the approach a step further by teaching upper-elementary students to build paragraphs.

Using subjects, predicates, and sentence composing tools, students learn and practice what good sentences look like before moving on to imitate strong paragraphs written by established authors -their "fitness trainers in writing."

The activities in this worktext help students:
learn and use the sentence-composing tools that foster elaboration in paragraphs
recognize and imitate how their favorite authors build sentences and paragraphs
practice composing paragraphs for different purposes.

With well-known and well-loved authors as their mentors, students build confidence as their writing becomes more meaningful and mature.
