Product Description
This file is available as a traditional PDF file, AND all student forms are available in Google Slides for easy availability to Google Classroom.

This product provides a framework for your class to compose their very own opinion writing (with a holiday twist)! It is broken down as such:

1. A list of mentor texts to read aloud throughout your unit.

2. A hands on and tasty activity to get your class excited about opinion writing!

3. Opinion Writer’s Toolbox: Use this poster to introduce the framework of opinion writing and what it is. I recommend introducing the topic, giving the students some talk time, and then reading aloud a mentor text to begin.

2. Planning: Students will use a graphic organizer with 4 squares to help them develop their paragraphs and reasons. I have included 3 different prompts for you to choose from.

3. What’s Your Hook?: Students will develop 3 different types of hooks and choose their favorite one.

4. Editing Checklist - May be used for self and/or peer editing

5. Publishing Paper - 2 options

Thanks and enjoy!
