Attached is a lesson plan and graphic organizers for a lesson using a classroom discussion of character traits of characters in a text to launch an open ended opinion writing. Graphic organizer included.
I adapted a lesson plan my mom loves to use with her 6th grade class to match the new common core standards for opinion writing. I included character traits charts appropriate for 5-8th grade and a chart appropriate for 2-4th grade.
Enjoy this ready-made lesson!
