This resource is also part of a huge money saving Third Grade Writing Bundle! It is a bundle that currently contains 34 resources covering narrative, opinion, informational, and creative writing for the third grade classroom. Any additional writing resources I create will be added to this bundle!

For each of the 10 high interest prompts in this resource students are asked to...

  • state their opinion
  • give at least 3 reasons to support their opinion
  • restate their opinion in closing.

When using the coloring code version students are then asked to underline the parts of their response with crayon or colored pencil according to a key. There is a small space for students to illustrate their opinion choice.

This set of prompts are beneficial for daily practice, for students just learning about opinion writing, or as a review.

These prompts work great to prep for testing, as well!

Teachers like you have said...

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "WE used these as a guide for writing our opinion pieces. Students loved providing evidence for their opinions and then being able to write their reasons for why they have that opinion. Over all a great resource to use!" -Kelsey P.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "I love how relatable these writing topics are to students. It also was a great opportunity for students to go back and make sure they have everything they need. I like how it had the students highlight each part of the paragraph that they were required to have. I also appreciate how this can be assigned to my virtual kiddos. " -Delanie L.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "What fun this was! My kiddos were engaged and excited throughout each page, and looked forward to the next one. Such a fun way to practice skills we have learned." -Christy W.
