This packet includes several activities for teaching persuasive writing!
The packet includes an easy-to use persuasive writing graphic organizer as well as a humorous writing sample to demonstrate persuasive writing. The sample is a hilarious letter to mom about why the student should not have to clean his room. It is a great introduction to persuasive writing!
Task Cards: There are 20 “Building an Argument” Task Cards. These each have a unique topic on them and require the student to build a part of the argument (directly from the graphic organizer). These are perfect for centers and review throughout the year.
More Task Cards: There are 20 “Topic” Task Cards. These are simply cards you can use to give your students ideas on topics they could use to write persuasive paragraphs. They use the same topics as the Building Cards.
