This pack includes a persuasive writing planning sheet, a student correction sheet, and a teacher example.
This year my firsties were really into writing persuasive letters. I developed this planning document to help my class take baby steps into their persuasive writing and boy did it help! They loved writing letters to me about longer recess, pizza parties, or choosing their seat but after a while they got lazy. I came up with this "Ready to Publish" correction practice sheet because I got SO tired of having writing conferences and finding simple mistakes or shortcuts that affected their writing quality. So rather than pull my hair out, I took one writing lesson and had my class correct these pre-written letters. After the giggles subsided about the silly mistakes, we had a great discussion about how important it is to take your time, re-read your work, and make sure your writing follows our persuasive letter rules.
Hopefully these simple documents help your student's writing quality as much as it did mine!
