This collection of opinion writing has five different levels of support for early writers.
This is perfect for the differentiated or split-grade classroom.

There are five different Halloween prompts where students must choose between two items and state their opinion. Students answer with:

– a Venn Diagram to explore the characteristics of each choice
– a simple sentence with starter frame
– a longer sentence with started frame
– a longer sentence with less support and self-editing
– a longer sentences with prompts for 3 reasons to support/explain the opinion given.

Each page has a spot for students to report who they read their opinion with (peer sharing accountability)
