Opinion Writing Resources

Do your students know how an opinion differs from a fact? These materials will teach children about opinions through writing. Lower elementary students can complete opinion sentences, while upper elementary children can get help writing essays that include their opinions. If students want to use their imaginations, give them an opportunity to practice creative writing.

Back It Up: Resources on Opinion Writing

It's meaningful for students to determine what they think about the world. But in order to make a sound opinion, kids need to learn what makes an idea credible. A way to form this skill is through opinion writing. The Learning Library contains a full supply of skills-based resources including hands-on activities, lesson plans and printable books. The curated opinion writing tools are for all elementary school grades from kindergarten through fifth.

All of the resources are developed by professional educators and aim to make teaching simple and effective. Lesson plans include various writing prompts that teach kids the makeup of persuasive writing. They will learn to decipher fact from opinion and how to share what's on their minds.

A hands-on activity teaches kids to reflect on the history of Rosa Parks and encourages thoughtful discussion on racial segregation. Having young students make a Thanksgiving proclamation is a way to intertwine an opinion lesson with the holiday. Premium members can access various printable workbooks, but there are plenty of worksheets available for base members, too. "
