Learning objective

Students will be able to learn about three ways to write a conclusion to end a narrative essay.


Students will turn and talk to a partner about all the things they do in the morning to get ready for school. Explain how a morning routine leads to school is similar to how the introduction and body paragraphs lead to the conclusion. Discuss why it important to write conclusions.


Introduce three types of conclusions: circular, surprise, and emotional statement. Students will read short passages of each type of conclusion and determine the conclusion type. They will also listen to a conclusion and decide which type of conclusion is being stated. Students will read "The Three Little Pigs" and write a conclusion for it. They will share their conclusions with partners.


Students will respond to ten questions which ask them to determine what kind of conclusion is given, and identify the types of conclusions.


Students will recall:
- Why is a conclusion important when writing a narrative?
- What are the three different types of conclusions we learned?
