Here are four prompts for opinion writing. The first is a prompt about saving your melting snowman. Followed by a Valentine's prompt where the mayor has outlawed Valentine's Day. The third deals with the decisions the President has to make. The last and my favorite is St. Patrick's Day. You have actually captured a leprechaun and have to convince him to give up his gold. My students really enjoy these writing assignments. Each month, they look forward to them, and there ideas are very logical and sometimes really funny.
