Would You Rather? Opinion Writing Workshop Unit
CC.W.K.1 Use a combination of drawing, dictating and writing to compose opinion pieces.
Would you rather color with crayons or color with markers? This unit includes 50 would you rather questions to inspire your writers to write and support their opinions. Set up a “Would You Rather?” writing station in your classroom. As the students arrive have them chose their answer and take their paper back to their seat to add their reason and draw an illustration. Save responses in their writing folders. At the end of the unit, add the cover to their collection of opinions. Instead of having a center, you can project the choice of the day on your Smartboard. Write opinions all year long by having a “Would You Rather?” Wednesday. Make each of your students a Would Your Rather? writing book. However you use this unit make sure that you take the time for students to share their opinions with their peers.
