    I am so glad to have found this resource, as it is perfect for my 8th graders who are beginning their first 5 paragraph essay of the year, and they definitely need a refresher course on writing essays before they get started. This is engaging and keeps them busy for almost the entire class hour, which is a huge feat for those students. Thank you for sharing this resource with us!
