This FREE SAMPLER is a great way to get your students started with opinion writing. In this set, there are 2 different “this or that” writing prompts. On each page, there are two choices at the top. Students choose one of the topics and write about it. This sample is a part of a much larger bundle, with over 60 writing prompts!!

This set would be great for a literacy center or as a Writing activity during your literacy block. You could even make a special journal full of "This or that?" prompts.

There are four different formats:
* The first set has “I like ______ because _______.” This sentence frame will support beginning writers.
* The second set has blank lines for students to write their own story.
* The third set also has “I like ______ because _______.” sentence frames, but it also uses handwriting lines.
* The fourth set has blank handwriting lines for students to write their own story.

In addition to the student writing prompts, there are also full-color cards to match each prompt. These can be used for whole group interactive/shared writing or for graphing purposes.

If you are interested in the larger bundle, please check out the link!!
