The "Please be my Valentine" opinion writing activity is designed to teach students the basics of persuading others. By trying to convince someone to be their valentine, students are able to reflect on their own personal strengths in a fun and meaningful way.
A template for students to create their draft writing is provided. This is an excellent way for them to organize their thoughts and ideas.
This activity can easily be used for students from grades 4-8 who are either in the early stages of opinion writing or refining their opinion writing skills.
