{OREO} Opinion Writing!

Last week we started our Opinion Writing unit and our class focused on {fabulous} facts and {outstanding} opinions!

This week, we moved right into Opinion Writing! I always go over the standard with my students on the Smartboard, and then we connected the opinion writing standard to the OREO writing model using these anchor charts.

We discussed each part of opinion writing and then students glued in a graphic organizer into their writing notebooks.

We also looked at some great online resources- if you teach opinion writing and you've never used these websites, go look NOW!

Spaghetti Book Club has book reviews by Kids for Kids! It's a great way to introduce writing reviews or opinion reading to kids! We read different reviews and discussed if they met our standard and followed the OREO writing model!

I absolutley LOVE KidzVuz! It's a website full of kids' video reviews for all different things! We use this website to make a list of all the different things that we can write reviews on! Then, we go even further and make a more specific list of things we feel strongly about! 

We discussed {Tasty Topic Sentences} and different ways students can introduce their reviews/opinion writing pieces.

Using Spaghetti Book Club, we looked at three different ways to write a topic sentence- a question, a description, and an interesting fact.

Then, I modeled writing my own topic sentences for my topic- the book Enemy Pie by

Students practiced writing their own topic sentences independently.

Make sure to check out this {OREO OPINION WRITING} unit in my Teachers Pay Teachers store!

Next week, we will start planning out our reasons and examples and learning about ways to persuade our audience!
