About this Product:
This product is a guide and resource for an Opinion Essay in which students construct a literary response in the form of opinion. According to assessments which are aligned to the Common Core State Standards, students in 4th grade may be required to respond to a text based on their opinion. How you use this resource will depend on your district and state assessments. I have based this product on some of the assessments in Florida in which students give their opinion about characters or the theme of the story.
Regardless of assessment, this unit is intended to help students not only become better writers, but better readers. The teaching points are a guide and aligned to the standard and reinforced by the student checklist.
Though this product is aligned for 4th grade, you may find valuable resources for 3rd-5th grades as well.
The anchor charts are intended to be used in the writer’s notebook, but also might give you ideas about anchor charts for your classroom. I hope this product fulfills your needs and I would love to have feedback based on your experience. Please look forward to more units such as this for Narrative and Informational Writing! They will be coming soon! Happy Teaching and Happy Writing!!
