Let your students work up an appetite for writing with this opinion writing prompt. First students will consider their favorite food while they fill in the structured pre-writing planner, then they can use the second page to write their opinion essay.
Before students write opinion pieces, they need to understand the difference between facts and opinions. This worksheet teaches them to do just that by having students cut out various statements and sort them into fact and opinion categories.
Use this graphic organizer to help students plan their personal narratives by drawing what will happen. Thinking about the beginning, middle, and end of their narratives encourages young writers to stretch out the small moments they write about.
