Opinion Writing

What is an opinion?  
An opinion is the way you think or feel about something.

And first graders aren't shy about expressing their thoughts or feelings!  :)

Conversations with friends are a big part of the prewriting process in our first grade writing program. 

"Turn and Talk Time"

For this writing piece, students chose their favorite time of year and identified a few reasons for choosing that season.  After jotting down reasons on the prewriting worksheet, students came up with an example for each reason.  They used their writing plans to work on writing independently.  

"windy, fall days..."

"prefer rainy weather in the spring..."

-two pages with reasons for enjoying winter and spring...

"summer weather is best..."

"winter is the best..."

"spring days are better than winter..."
