Everyone has an opinion on just about everything. Is that not right? Kids have strong opinions about all kinds of things from storms to lemons to what time to go to bed at night. And they LOVE telling you their opinions! So why not take that enthusiasm and apply it to their writing?
These are from my Take It or Leave It pack. It is an easy, No Prep- Print & Use pack where kids can take their opinions and back them up with reasons. They choose whether they would Take It or Leave It for the subject at the top, write a couple phrases why, and then write a quick paragraph about it. These make great morning work, writing center ideas, RTI writing intervention work, and a whole lot of others ways you could use them. They just make writing fun because they get kids to thinking and give them practice backing up their opinions with reasons why. And I know my students need all the practice with this skill that they can get!
These are my What's Your Preference? task cards. They also get kids practicing writing about their opinions while take them through the writing process. You can place these in a center or use them as a whole group for teaching opinion writing as you teach students during Writer's Workshop. Either you or the students choose a task card and decide, What's Your Preference?
There are several writing pages included in this pack to help guide students through the writing process. 2 planning guides, a rough draft page and a final copy page are included. The 2 planning guides give you the choice of differentiating how much scaffolding your students may need to plan out what they will write.
