20 printable pages for students to evaluate two choices, pick the best option, and then give three reasons why their choice is better than the other. Each lesson presents two options (with an illustration of both). Is it better for a dog to take a bath every day or exercise every day? Is it more fun for a dog to play with a Frisbee or a ball? Is it worse for a dog to dig holes in the neighbor’s yard or bark at everyone who walks by? These and more questions will give your students a chance to explain their reasoning while mastering several Common Core Standards:
- to produce simple and compound sentences (CCSS.ELA.L.2.1f) and complex sentences (L.3.1i).
- to produce clear and coherent writing (CCSS.ELA.W.4.4 and W.5.4)
- to write an opinion and support it with reasons (CCSS.ELA.W.3.1 and W.4.1 and W.5.1)
