News of the Nor'Easter 2015 reminded me of a writing activity the children worked on a few weeks ago.  This was an opinion writing, and the children chose either a 'frightful' or 'delightful' point of view.  You'll notice, we are a class who loves the snow.

Common Core writing standard:

W. 1.1 Write opinion pieces in which they introduce the topic or name the book
they are writing about, state an opinion, supply a reason for the
opinion, and provide some sense of closure.
Our pre-writing activity included conversations with peers about past experiences with winter weather.  We also created a diagram and sorted activities into the two categories - frightful and delightful.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping the snow that's expected to fall this coming week will provide delight, not fright to those affected.
