The best option is to first use Starter Paragraph Punch and then use Open Punch.
With Starter Paragraph Punch students learn how to write a basic paragraph developed through reasons, details, examples, and sequence. Pre-set writing prompts guide students step-by-step through pre-writing, organizing, revising, editing, and publishing. Student writing is stored in an easy-to-use management system which allows teachers to monitor learners’ progress.
After Starter Paragraph Punch, try using Open Punch. Open Punch helps students learn to write narrative, fact-based, or opinion paragraphs – the writing concepts emphasized in the Common Core. Once teachers are familiar with the structure of the Punch programs, they can use their own writing topics with the program.
