Opinion Writing Worksheet (Freebie)

Please note –

At first glance, this product may seem ‘easy’ for the grade it is advertised for. This product is not meant to be pages full of writing lines. It is a scaffolded approach to teaching writing, with word prompts, as well as clip art and drawing boxes in order to be engaging. It is perfect for students who are struggling with writing or first learning the concept. This product is not for you if you are looking for prompts with full pages of writing lines. This product is intended to help teach and scaffold the writing skill, not to be pages full of lines in which students write completely on their own (although some of the prompts are like this).
