The Layout of the Paragraph

  1. Topic Sentence
  2. The first part of a paragraph is the topic sentence. Most of the time the first sentence in a paragraph is referred to as the topic sentence. It expressed what the paragraph is all about. The rest of the sentences in the paragraph should match the topic sentence.

  3. Supporting Details
  4. The supporting sentences give us more detail about the topic sentence by stating some supporting information example related to topic. It is mainly the explanation part of the topic.

  5. Concluding Sentence
  6. The concluding sentence is the final sentence in a paragraph. It sums the main topic in a single line. In the concluding sentence, the main concept is usually repeated as a summary.

Examples:

Topic Sentence: My name is Neha.

Supporting Details: I stay with my parents, and my younger brother lives in Kochi, Kerala. My father is a teacher, and my mother is a housewife. My parents spend a lot of time with me and my brother.

Concluding Sentence: We are a small and happy family.
