Opinion Writing with Little People is common core aligned. It includes everything you need to teach opinion writing! It was developed to use in my kindergarten class but will fit the needs of first and some second grade classrooms. Includes 49 PROMPTS - 24 picture writing prompt cards to place in a writing station PLUS 25 writing prompts with organizers and publishing pages! Each writing prompt has two matching organizers - one with lines and one without. See thumbnail pictures for examples of the organizers.
I have also included different organizers in the back of the packet. I use these to help differentiate writing in my classroom. These organizers allow for students to give 1 – 4 reasons for their opinion. Choose the organizer that best fits the needs of your students.
