Calling all 2nd and 3rd grade teachers! Do you need an easy opinion writing unit that doesn’t take YEARS to prep, is common core aligned, engaging, and student centered? Well look no further!
From ready to print anchor charts, to sorts, games, graphic organizers, writing prompts, assessments, checklists, etc. this pack has pretty much EVERYTHING you need to start a successful writing unit. One of the reasons I love this unit so much is because of the resources to help scaffold and differentiate instruction when needed. If you teach ELL students, this resource is especially helpful! The graphic organizers, charts, sentence stems, etc. really help every student succeed! I even included a breakdown of how to use all the resources to implement a 4o day opinion writing unit!
A few years back when teaching 2nd grade, I was trying so hard to teach opinion writing with the common core standards without having all the resources I really needed. I felt that my teaching was all over the place. I would use free revised Lucy Calkin’s lessons that I found online, various common core aligned lessons/activities/printables I found, and random books I had in my classroom library to help. While I was happy with how my students’ writing was improving and progressing, I felt lost, stressed, and ALWAYS thinking about WHAT I was going to teach next. I never really had a full plan with where I was going. That’s when this pack was created. It made my life so much easier, my students writing so much better, and it was actually a very fun unit to do! Other teachers have tried it and so far I’ve heard only positive results! I hope your classroom has the same success and fun as well!
