The Persuasive Writing Prompts and Frames that are included in this packet are frames that I have used with my advanced first graders and/or seconder graders as I introduced persuasive writing in my classroom.

What is Included:

♥ There are 5 frames included in this packet. The frames guide students to write to persuade. I found these frames to be extremely helpful when teaching my first and second graders Persuasive writing.

♥ 4 sheets have specific persuasive ideas and then there is a blank sheet for you or your students to decide how they might want to persuade someone to think their way!

♥ These sheets are intended to be used as a rough draft for a persuasive piece and then for students to rewrite a good copy. However, these sheets may be used whatever way you might like to use them.

When I used some of these frames, I actually played a class game that students “convinced” me to play and also had the class vote on which letters or pieces were the most convincing and why.

These sheets can easily be used:

♥ In a writing station
♥ As an introduction for writing to persuade
♥ To enrich stronger writers
♥ To remediate those in upper graders who need support with persuasive writing.

These pages easily guide your students to sequentially write to persuade in an easy way.

What Writing Ideas are included:

♥ Persuade your teacher to play a favorite game.
♥ Pretend you are a turkey and persuade the farmer not to serve
you forThanksgiving dinner.
♥ Persuade your principal that your school needs another recess.
♥ Persuade your mom or dad to buy you a pet.
♥ A writing form for students to use to explain why they think a
particular piece is or was the most convincing and persuade the
class to think their way.
♥ List of convincing words and phrases.
