This product contains 6 pages of weekly writing plans to perfect students' opinion writing. It is Common Core aligned (see "I Can" box on top right) as well as LAFS (Florida Standards) aligned (LAFS.4.W.1.1)
I put each weekly page in a sheet protector in the front of students' 3-ring writing binder with plenty of lined paper behind it. Each day, they will label with a piece of paper with the correlating day of the week at the top of the page and turn in their final product on Friday.
For the Friday assignment, I do an author share where each student has the opportunity to sit in the **special** chair and share their work with the class. (This is a perfect place for me to assess their speaking/listening skills as well - double whammy!! :) However, if you have a student who is too shy to share, I have them "publish" their work - typed with illustrations.
Please let me know if there is any way I can tweak this product to better suit your needs :)
