To next year 6 graders: Advice about writing an essay

Writing an essay might be easy. However, writing an essay takes a lot of time. You have to plan on what you have to write, plan the structure, and make sure you have no contractions! You have to write a topic paragraph, 3 body paragraphs, and a conclusion paragraph. It is also hard to explain your evidence. You also need to find evidence from a book which is also hard.

To wrap things up here are some key advice I will give you to write a successful essay.


  • No contractions! (it’s, that’s, I’ll)
  • Always cite your evidence
  • An essay always follows a structure (body paragraph, topic & conclusion paragraph)
