    Default Honestly what do you think...

    My name is Brittany. I'm currently a freshman in high school. My teachers over the years have said many different things. How many sentences do you personally think should be in a paragraph? I've heard 3,4,5,6, and even 7.

    There is no right number of sentences. A paragraph can be a single word or an entire chapter.

    Paragraphs do not have a fixed number of sentences. They are used to group ideas together. When you switch to a new subject you open a new paragraph.
