Do your students struggle with persuasive writing, even though they have had experience with lots of graphic organizers? If so, these activities are for you! The jump from a graphic organizer to a blank piece of paper is too vast for young writers. These writing frame templates offer a scaffolded way for students to organize their writing, providing graphic organizers and sentence stem templates to link ideas and make connections. Use of personal pronouns ensure that students are making a direct connection to the topic. Each activity includes optional writing papers for a final 'published' opinion piece. Perfect for using the editing process. This is a comprehensive resource that even includes an example of how to transfer information from a graphic organizer to a scaffolded sentence stem template to a final write-up.

Each of the ten prompts are meaningful with engaging real-life hooks that students can relate to, form an opinion on and write about with purpose. Many of the prompts have differentiated graphic organizers and sentence stem writing planning sheets! 'Robots', 'Take a Trip', 'Read this Book' and 'Silent Lunch' offer different writing activities, such as leaflets and newspaper reports.
