After having a snow day, my 2nd graders write opinion pieces about whether or not we should have snow days. They love writing and debating about the issue. :-)
Included in this freebie are 4 differentiated versions of the template. The first three templates, give a framework for their paragraphs. The fourth is for very strong writers who don't need the help of a graphic organizer. I also use the last sheet as a "final copy" paper students who used one of the first three templates.
