This is a unit I do in my own third grade classroom. It is a perfect way to emphasize the importance of point of view, opinion writing, and persuasive writing all in one! It is a favorite of my students every year. It also make a great writing bulletin board for your classroom or hallway!
This bundle includes:
-Graphic Organizer for students to use while reading, The True Story of the Three Little Pigs
-Graph Organizer for students to use while reading, The Three Little Pigs (any traditional version will work!)
-Graphic Organizer for Opinion/Persuasive Writing
-Final draft papers (with a box for students to add a picture)
*BONUS: Graphic Organizer can be used for all your opinion/persuasive writing needs!
There are two sides to every story. When you read The Three Little Pigs and the True Story of the Three Little Pigs, your students will be appalled to learn that they might have been tricked all this time! The wolf might not actually be big and bad after all!!! Students will have to choose a side and use evidence from the texts to support their opinion. Since opinion writing is part of the Common Core State Standards, I find this a fun an engaging way for students to bring those standards to life.
