We are just beginning a new writing unit. In this unit, we will be writing opinion essays. Having an opinion is easy, but supporting that opinion is much more difficult. In our essays, we need at least three reasons to support our opinion.The students just completed their first opinion essay. When they were done, they went back and underlined each part of the essay to make sure they didn't forget anything. For just starting the unit, I was very impressed. I'm excited to see how we grow in the next few months!
Here is a key to understanding the parts of our essays:
Introduction = Green Naming the Topic= Yellow Stating our Opinion = Blue Three Reasons + Three Details = Purple Ending = Red
We are mathematicians, readers, writers, scientists, teammates, and first graders. We spend our days exploring, listening, and learning. We know that learning can feel uncomfortable sometimes, but as a team, we support each other and help each other reach our goals. Join us on our journey!
