2. I used this awesome hamburger paragraph writing template to help my kids out with wrangling their topic sentences. It's really great. http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Paragraph-Writing-Hamburger-Style

4. Recently, I did a lesson with my students about using iMessages to express emotions. They learned how iMessages can express happy, sad, excited, or angry emotions, and we practiced them in different situations.
|I took the picture after I laminated- sorry!|
Using iMessages as a sentence frame is great for ELL's because it gives them the freedom to choose their own emotions while taking away the anxiety of producing a full sentence. You could use this with special education or speech therapy students, as well. I just uploaded this lesson and activity to TPT, and you can find it here.
