This 2nd Grade Persuasive Writing Unit is based on ReadyGen Unit 2: Decision Making. In this unit, you will begin generating ideas during the prewriting phase. You will use the first two sheets labeled "Wants and Needs for School", and "Wants and Needs for Home". After students have chosen their favorite topic to focus on, they will complete the OREO graphic organizer to help plan out their strong reasons and examples to support their opinion. Don't forget to use the OREO checklist! You'll notice sentence starters are listed for students to use in their opinion, reasons, examples, and restating opinion.
