Campbellsville Middle School students recently made s’mores in their language arts classes.
In Paige Cook’s eighth-grade classes, students are studying how to write introductory paragraphs.
Cook compared the paragraphs to s’mores.
The top graham cracker is like the first sentence of the paragraph. It hooks the reader.
The marshmallows and chocolate are comparable to sentences in the paragraph that provide supporting details.
And the bottom graham cracker is the thesis statement of the paragraph.
After learning about the paragraphs, Cook asked her students to write their own.
Students who wrote proficient paragraphs were recently allowed to make their own s’mores during class.
