Product Description
This writing prompt asks students to read paired texts and then write their opinion about which season is the best. Students will fill out the graphic organizer, which guides them to write a 3-paragraph essay. Once you have proofread their drafts, give them the fun seasonal-themed stationery and then grade their essays with the included rubric. (This is a great prompt to use when you begin teaching students how to write an opinion essay because chances are, students already have some idea of which season is their favorite!)

Included:
1. Text 1: A magazine article about the most popular American holidays that occur season by season.
2. Text 2: A magazine article about popular sports and activities that are played in each season.
3. Writing Prompt & Tips: Explains the prompt and offers tips to help students do their best writing.
4. Opinion Essay Poster
5. Graphic Organizer: ORE-RE-REO style
6. Exemplar: I wrote a model essay with the opinion that summer is the best season. Show it to students to give them an idea of what you expect. However, there are at least 3 reasons in the texts that support ANY season being chosen as the best.
7. Stationery: There are 5 sheets of stationery, 4 seasonal pictures and 1 full page of lines. Let students choose the seasonal picture that matches their opinion. Copy the 5th sheet onto the back so students have plenty of lines to write on.
8. Rubric: Based on 100 points, aligned with Common Core / TNReady Standards
