Product Description
Are you searching for an EDITABLE Opinion Writing Unit that builds background knowledge while meeting the demands of the Second Grade Common Core Standards? Then, this unit is for you!

***Most, not all, items are EDITABLE. EDITABLE word documents do not contain graphics due to the fact they are editable. Each editable item is an individual word document or Smart Board lesson so you can edit them to fit your and your students' needs. See product preview for an example.***

The Unit Plan includes:

1) Essential question(s)
2) Cited standards
3) Suggested teacher reads
4) Possible questions
5) Lesson plans (Each lesson lasts a week. See below for the general lesson sequence most lessons follow. It is based on the Gradual Release Method.)
General Lesson Sequence: Day 1-Build Background, Day 2-Introduce the Week’s Skill, Day 3-Practice, Day 4-Practice, Day 5-Assess
6) Assessments
7) I can statements
8) Whole, small, and independent activities, games, graphic organizers and worksheets


Unit Specific Content:

Unit 3-Opinion Writing:

Topics of Lessons:
Lesson 1: Introductions*
Lesson 2: Supplying Reasons
Lesson 3: Conclusions
Lesson 4: Opinion Writing Practice

*I've found when I chunk lessons as in the sequence above, I get meatier paragraphs as the students start to deeply understand each component and what's expected. (Since my instruction has slowed down, students have had more time to evaluate their work, peer edit, and I have more time to spend with small groups and individual students.) Suggested Pacing is included; however, it can be modified to fit your students' needs. Student forms can also be edited because they are word documents.

Editable Word Documents:
list maker, my word book cover sheet, writing checklist poster, writing contract, writing pencil, writing process posters, conference paper, 3 student self-evaluations (progress as lessons progress), opinion chart, opinion organizer, opinion task #1, 3 peer evaluations (progress as lessons progress), t-chart, opinion task #2, opinion task #3, opinion rubric, and opinion topics menu

Smart Board Lessons/Activities:
opinion t-chart, model of reasons and connecting words and conclusion
