Product Description

This is the fifth unit in my new Kindergarten Writing Series! All materials are Common Core aligned and are easy to implement and use in differentiated settings.

I will be taking you from the the first few weeks in kindergarten all the way through the end of the year.

These units are also perfect for first grade and second grade writing instruction as well.

UNIT 1- LABELING

UNIT 2- MAKING LISTS

UNIT 3- NARRATIVE

UNIT 4- EXPOSITORY HOW-TO WRITING

UNIT 5- OPINION

UNIT 6- NON-FICTION

UNIT 7- PERSUASIVE

UNIT 8- POETRY

UNIT 9- CARDS/INVITATIONS

This listing is for the OPINION UNIT only.

This will help take the guess work out of, "How do I teach my students to write?!"

The units will be sequential and progressively get harder throughout the school year as students' skills develop.

-----------------------------------------

UNIT 5 - OPINION WRITING

-----------------------------------------

Unit 5 is so much fun to teach!

We all have different favorite foods, pets, activities and preferences. I introduce our anchor posters and we practice using opinion words and phrases:

"I like ______ more than ______ because..."

"I prefer...."

"My favorite ______ is..."

"In my opinion..."

This unit will teach your students how to write about their opinions and give supporting details.

Activities provide scaffolding so your students can be confident and successful writers!

Included are activities suitable for whole group instruction, small groups, writing stations and independent work.

-------------------------------

WHAT IS INCLUDED

-------------------------------

★ Anchor Posters (x 2)

8.5x11 PDF - print on paper or card stock

16x20 JPG - upload to a photo center to use as large posters

★ Which do you prefer?

Activities to introduce students to writing about their opinions.

3 different activities included!

Which is better? (circle your answer)

Which do you prefer (finish the sentence using the word bank)

I like _____ more than _______ (fill in the sentence using the provided answers)

Each activity gets slightly more difficult as students become more comfortable with writing their opinion.

★Which one do you like more?

Students choose between foods and/or activities to decide which one they like more. They then support their opinion with words from the word bank.

"I like my _______ more because____________________."

10 different activities included!

Students enjoy the routine and predictability of these activities and their confidence grows each time they complete a writing prompt.

In My Opinion WORD BANKS

Students choose a box/word to write about their opinion. A graphic organizer and writing paper are included so students can provide reasons/details to support their opinion.

★The Best Things - Holidays/Seasons

Six holidays and four season are included!

Students can practice writing their opinion throughout the entire year.

Word banks provide students with the scaffolding they need to complete the sentence starters:

"The best things about __________ are...."

Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring.

★THE BEST Snack, Pet, Game

I use this activity towards the end of the unit once students feel more confident about writing their opinion and giving supporting details.

Students choose an item they think is best and then give reasons why they think so. Supporting vocabulary is given for each picture to assist students with writing details.
