20 printable pages for students to give three reasons why their opinion matters. Each lesson presents students with a choice: Is it important for a dog to take a bath? Is it important for a dog to stay in their own backyard? Is it important for a dog to wear a flea collar? Is it bad for a dog to dig holes? Is it safe to let your little sister ride on your dog? These and more scenarios will give your students a chance to explain their reasoning while mastering several Common Core Standards:
- to write an opinion and support it with reasons (CCSS.ELA.W.3.1 and W.4.1 and W.5.1)
- to produce simple and compound sentences (CCSS.ELA.L.2.1f) and complex sentences (L.3.1i).
- to produce clear and coherent writing (CCSS.ELA.W.4.4 and W.5.4)
