These opinion writing worksheets are common core aligned to the grade 2 writing standard:


Write opinion pieces in which they introduce the topic or book they are writing about, state an opinion, supply reasons that support the opinion, use linking words (e.g., because, and, also) to connect opinion and reasons, and provide a concluding statement or section.

Note: These worksheets can still be used for third graders who are working below their grade level.
