I think you are confused about your terms.

A topic sentence is the main idea of a paragraph. It is usually the first sentence of the paragraph and makes a statement about some topic. The rest of the paragraph explains the topic sentence or gives examples of the topic sentence.

You should state your topic for each sentence. I like to call it a topic paragraph because you spend the first paragraph talking about your topic.

the first sentence of the paragraph is called the topic sentence which should describe most of the paragraph for the reader to understand. The topic sentence is usually the first sentence of a paragraph. It makes a statement (about a topic) and the rest of the paragraph explains the topic sentence or gives examples of the topic sentence. The second sentence of a paragraph can sometimes be the topic sentence. Sometimes it is called a summary sentence.

Generally the topic sentence is the first sentence of the paragraph and the rest of the paragraph explains or gives examples of the topic sentence. The topic sentence can also be the second sentence of the paragraph. This is when the first sentence is a linking sentence that links the paragraph to the previous paragraph. Sometimes the topic sentence can be the last sentence in the paragraph

Here are three typical explanations of what a topic sentence does: 1. It gives the main idea of the paragraph. 2. It states the topic of the paragraph. 3. It tells what the paragraph will be about. If the details are appropriate we can learn the point, but we should not have to read the paragraph to know the point. We should know the point after we read the topic sentence.

The topic sentence always expresses the main idea of a paragraph (1st 2nd 3rd etc).Usually the topic sentence is the first sentence of the paragraph. Sometimes the topic sentence is the second sentence ( the first sentence links to the previous paragraph ). Possibly the topic sentence is the last sentence of a paragraph.But usually the first is the topic sentence and the other sentences in the paragraph explain or give examples of the topic sentence.

The topic sentence lets the reader know what the paragraph is about.
