About this Product

This opinion essay unit provides basic opinion writing teaching points and resources based on the Common Core Writing Standards for Grades 3-5. The lesson plans are divided into three parts:

1. Basic Teaching Points: Lessons that can be carried from writing a self-selected opinion piece to writing in response to text. These begin with generating ideas and end with a published piece of opinion writing.

2. Bonus (mini) Mini Lessons: Lessons to be used in small group, conferring, or whole group depending on the needs of your students.

3. Writing in Response to Text: Lessons to be used when writing in response to text or a prompt

This unit provides topic ideas and resources for any opinion piece. You could use a text as a basis for the opinion piece or use this unit to simply kick off opinion writing in your classroom. The writing lessons do not need to be taught in the exact order. Also, some of the teaching points you could use as small group lessons if you find that only some of your students need the lesson.

Writer's Notebook Anchor Charts

The anchor charts included in this product are meant for students to have anchor charts at their fingertips in their Writer’s Notebooks. I don’t know about you, but wall space is always an issue in my classroom. Not only that, but storing and keeping track of large chart paper can sometimes stretch our organizational skills to the limits! I have found one of the best ways to support my students is to treat their notebooks like a tool in which they can find the strategies and skills taught whenever they need it. In this way, what we teach our students is not just a one day occurrence, but they have a “forever tool.”

Be sure to check the preview to see what else is included!

I highly recommend buying the Narrative, Opinion, & Informational Writing Bundle which includes the Narrative Unit with some basics to help implement Writer's Workshop in your classroom. The Informational Unit has other charts for Craft Moves and Elaboration which could also be useful when teaching and supplement this Unit very well. All of my units work very well with Lucy Calkins' Writing & Reading Units of Study.

When you purchase the units, there is a Note to Buyers which has a link for you to sign up for updates regarding this product. I am always working to improve these units and there is always more to add. :)
