Big Hamburger

I have many hamburgers I will be posting in the near future.....sooooo please stay tuned!!! I use this particular 5 paragraph hamburger for my 3rd and 4th graders. One of the things I do is to use it under the Elmo to model great writing. We usually create a story together. When students use the 5 paragraph hamburger independently, I have them brainstorm to get their 3 BIG ideas, and create a hook (see previous HOOKS blog). I allow them to write directly on the hamburger. I have blackline hamburgers similar to this that I will be posting in the near future. After editing etc., they can then make their final copy with 5 paragraphs!  Here is the FREEBIE enjoy! Oh, I wanted to mention that this hamburger is 11 x17 which makes it EXTRA CooliO!
