Community Helpers Opinion Writing ---
This activity is connected to CCGPS ELACCKW1: Use a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to compose opinion pieces in which they tell a reader the topic or the name of the book they are "writing" about and state an opinion or preference about the topic or book. The topic for this opinion writing packet is "community helpers." These opinion writing activities are great to put in a writing center for students to choose which pictures to use to give their opinions about.
This pack includes 48 pages with 24 community helpers for students to write their opinions about. The 24 community helpers include fireman, policeman, chef, crossing guard, detective, doctor, mail carrier, mechanic, nurse, teacher, trash collector, vet, business woman, businessman, farmer, fisherman, forest ranger, lifeguard, miner, oil worker, ski guide, tour guide, waiter, and waitress.
This pack has two pages per community helper.
The first page for each community helper includes three identical pictures of the community helper and the sentence starter “I like (community helper name - teachers) because” with five writing lines under it.
The second page for each community helper asks “Would you like to be a (community helper name – teacher)? Why or why not?” then it has six blank lines for students to write on to tell their opinion about the particular community helper.
Students love telling their opinions. This activity encourages students to give the reason why they like or do not like each community helper.
Teachers can also use these writing activities as a whole class activity. Assigning these activities for a homework assignment can include parents in helping increase their child’s writing skills. However you choose to use these activities, I hope your students develop a love for writing.
