One of the first paragraphs that first graders learn to write is the opinion
paragraph. Kids generally love to give their opinions on various subjects, but they aren’t always aware of the difference between opinions and facts
This worksheet helps students understand that opinions are feelings or thoughts about a subject, whereas facts are something true about that subject.
We can have different feelings about cats, for example, but there are certain facts about cats that we can’t argue about.
The worksheet provides valuable preparation for students who are going to write an opinion piece. It also encourages reading comprehension as well—because children become aware that not everything they read is necessarily factual.
Students mark sentences F or O for Fact or Opinion. They then write their own opinion about cats, along with one fact.
