Back to School Opinion Writing – An Exciting New School Year
This past week my kiddos worked on opinion writing again. In between our Engaging Writing lessons, we include a variety of writing activities that follow the same format as our writing lessons. Opinion writing lessons work out very well as early school year activities.
The kids did a great job!
There is a bounty of goodies in this resource!
It includes the complete, differentiated opinion writing lesson.
We work on punctuation a lot during these first few weeks of school. The punctuation match puzzle game is definitely one of my kiddos’ favorites.
I just leave the pieces in the pocket chart in our word work area and they have a blast.
The punctuation posters in the room help develop mastery and are a great reference resource.
We work on an interactive reader about punctuation together – whole-group. The kids love interactive readers. They usually keep them in their desks for a period of time so they can work on coloring and re-reading them whenever they finish work early.
Throughout the month I have our reference anchor chart hanging on the board. It’s a huge reference help for journaling and our An Exciting New School Year opinion writing lesson.
This cute craft pennant is a hit with the kiddos. The little peeps really like to personalize this part!
I love how unique all of their pennants turned out!
The punctuation elements will continue to be part of our word work center this coming week.
