Grade 4 - English Language
3.6 Sentences in a Paragraph

Every paragraph needs a topic sentence. The topic sentence is usually (but not always) the first sentence of the paragraph. Rest of the sentences in the paragraph provide details supporting the topic sentence.

The topic sentence gives the reader an idea of what the paragraph is going to be about. The supporting sentences need to be about the idea presented in the topic sentence. In a paragraph, every sentence should support the topic sentence. If a sentence does not support the main idea of the paragraph, it does not belong in that paragraph and it should be moved to a new paragraph.

Directions: In the paragraph given in each question, one sentence does not belong. Pick out the 'odd' sentence and write it in the space provided.

On a sheet of paper, write at least three paragraphs on topics of your choice. Identify the topic sentence in each of your paragraphs.

As a homework, write at least five paragraphs from any book of your choice and identify the topic sentences and supporting details in them.
