Opinion Writing (FREEBIE included)

How many of you LOVE to teach writing to your students? I am amazed at how well kindergarten students can write by the end of their kindergarten year. Some students come to school not even knowing how to hold a pencil, others may make random marks on their paper, while others may be able to write recognizable letters or maybe even a few beginning sounds. Then by the end of the year, most of these students are writing stories including a beginning, middle, and ending with characters and a setting. I am so amazed at how well my students write. I am excited to begin my blog so that when school begins in August, I can share some of my students' writing with you.

One of the common core standards (ELACCKW1) under writing includes opinion writing where students draw, dictate, and write to compose opinion pieces in which they tell a reader the topic or the name of the book they are writing about and state an opinion or preference about the topic or book. My students love to write their opinion about books and topics.

I am always looking for ideas to put in my writing center. These opinion writing topics below make a great item to add to a writing center or just for a writing workshop lesson. Take a look at these topics and feel free to visit my Teachers Pay Teachers store for more opinion writing ideas and topics. While visiting my store, please follow me for updates of new products posted and to be notified of free products posted. Feel free to download my free opinion writing product on the topic of favorite playground activity. Thanks for stopping by!
