Thank you so much for all the positive comments on the writing units I have prepared! I know a lot of my followers have been requesting an opinion writing unit, so here it is! After a lot of research (and much creativity), I am excited to release this unit.
This 30 page document includes:

Teacher’s Guide: Recommendation on the order I would present the unit.
Level 1 and 2 Graphic Organizers: Scaffolded to meet your beginning and advanced writers. Both organizers teach a step by step structure to help support our writers.
Fact and Opinion Sort: This is a great resource to use when introducing this genre of writing. Knowing the difference between facts and opinions help our students better understand this type of writing. These cards also help students identify 'signal words' that tell the writer they should be stating their opinion.
Making a Strong Argument Activity: This is one awesome strategy to learn at a young age. This unique approach will help our writers to write strong arguments and they will be better prepared to write persuasive arguments in future grades.
16 Writing Prompt Cards: All you have to do is print and cut and you are prepared with topics for weeks! These silly opinion prompts make writing fun!
Thank you so much for purchasing! The unit is made with much love! Enjoy!
