(Included in my "Classroom Setup Kit". Get all you need for a classroom setup in one place!)
I don't believe in making my students "guess" what they need to do to write a paper. I want them to have clean cut steps so they have the ability to successfully write papers from the start. I do this by using high support opinion writing checklists. These checklists are hung in my room where my students can easily see them.
As they begin to memorize the steps I change out my high support lists for moderate support lists. Eventually I have just the basic steps to writing a paper, and then no checklists at all!
Using these checklists has really helped me build up my students confidence! In this packet you will get the opinion writing checklists I use for grade Kindergarten - fourth grade.
