This is a wonderful resource unit for guiding students through opinion writing. It incorporates multiple skills for incorporating details, which can be a difficult task for young writers. It also includes a list of transition words and phrases. This resource is appropriate for 2nd-5th grade students.
I am a third grade teacher and I love to teach writing! Over the years I have found that writing can be a difficult process for some students. I have developed these tried and true resources with great success. My students respond positively to them and they have truly helped to provide the scaffolding needed for young writers.
