This pack includes 6 nonfiction articles that are for student responding with opinion writing. Students read the article and respond with their opinion. Completely focused around the Common Core writing standards, students will be responding to text and the writing planners and graphic organizers that are included will be great to get students excited about opinion writing! I have also UPDATED this set to create paragraphs due to popular demand. The nonfiction texts include:
1. Kids and Social Media
2. Sea World: Friend or Foe (two texts, one for each opinion)
3. Snakes as Pets
4. Space Exploration
5. Are Athletes Paid too Much?
Each article has a graphic organizer to match and a writing sheet. I have also included general graphic organizers to help students plan for opinion writing for any kind of opinion writing. If you are interested in other texts as well, please let me know. Also, if you are in need of easier text for K-1 I would be willing to adapt it.
