Use these activities and printables to help your students understand the three (3) CCSS types of writing. When students know what type of writing is needed-- opinion (persuasive), informative/explanatory (expository), and narrative -- it's a lot easier to respond to a variety of prompts. Use these ready-to-use printables to introduce and review identifying the three kinds of writing. NO PREP!
