This CCSS opinion writing activity is a follow-up to the entertaining book "Have I Got a Book for You" by Melanie Watt. After reading the book, students can write their own about a product of their choice. They need to decide an opinion about their product and reasons why that opinion is valid (for instance, it's helpful, it's exciting, it's awesome!). The pages included are publishing pages for the students to make their book. See the preview for an example.
Also included are my revising, editing and peer editing checklist as well as my opinion writing rubric and self-evaluation that are normally sold separately! There are brief lesson plans but it may be tailored to the writing format in your classroom.
It's aligned to the CCSS for Grade 3, but second or fourth could use as well!
