We love to use picture books to introduce and teach different types of writing. This freebie pack includes four opinion writing prompts that go along with the books: Spoon (A. Rosenthal), Exclamation Mark (A. Rosenthal), The Day the Crayons Quit (D. Daywalt), and A Fine, Fine School (S. Creech). All of these books can be found on Amazon (of course!), but as an alternative, all of the books are available as read alouds on You Tube (always a great choice if you don’t have a copy of the books on hand). The purpose of these writing prompts are to help your students understand how to write their opinion statement and then give reasons to support their opinion. They can be used as just a brainstorming / planning sheet or as a final product.
We have other products in our store that focus on opinion writing.
Prove Yourself is a series of questions that encourage students to state their opinion about simple, everyday things as an easy way to introduce stating an opinion.
