Opinion Writing for kindergarten and first grade

Opinion writing in kindergarten is one of those things, in my opinion (see what I did there) is best done spirally.

We certainly introduce writing for a reason as a unit of study. However, we want the students' understanding of opinion writing to grow as their transcription skills grow.

Recently Deedee worked in a kindergarten class and tested our new Opinion writing unit!

She started by asking the question...
Students wrote their opinion on a slip of paper and placed it on the pocket chart.

She purposely showed invented spelling on her own card, since she is really pushing this crew to be FEARLESS spellers and just put the sounds they hear on the card.

She also introduced them to several anchor charts.  Here is one that is included in the unit.
Here is what they came up with!
The best way to get around is to ride a bike because I don't get as tired.

What is the best way to get around?  I think scooters are the best because it is fast and also has a handle [bar] and you sway on the scooter.   
I think running is the best because you can get to places fast.  That is the best way to get around.

What is the best way to get around on your own?  I think that a bike is the best way to get around because you go fast.  Bikes are the best way to get around.

You know why hover boards are the best? Because I never fall off and I like it. That's the best way to get around.
Here is what is included in the opinion writing unit.
This unit is perfect for kindergarten and first grade and it's on sale until Saturday at midnight!

Swing by Deedee's blog to see the rest of the samples!


  1. MOUNTAIN HEIGHTS PLATEAU Extending from Umm Qays (also Qais) at one of the country’s northernmost points to the town of Ras-an-Naqab to the south, Air Jordan Shoes, the Mountain Heights Plateau is a terrain of rugged mountains and highlands that separate western Jordan from the arid deserts of the Badia region. The north receives the highest levels of rainfall. As such, it is a region of often fast-flowing rivers that provide water for irrigation.

    The rivers of Wadi Musa, Wadi Hassa, Wadi Zarqa and the great Wadi Mujib all flow through this part of the plateau region. Vast areas of fertile land ripe for agriculture lie either side of the wadis, and because they yield crops for consumption they have attracted habitation for millennia. Retro Jordans, Amman and the major settlement areas of Karak, Irbid, Madaba and Zarqa are located in this part of the Mountain Heights Plateau region. Here, too, can be found the remains of the ancient Greco-Roman city of Jerash to the north of Amman, and the Nabatean city of Petra in the south, suggesting the area has been populated and provided sustenance for the people since the times of antiquity.

    'Ihe southern areas of the plateau, south of the northern highlands, are characterised by a mix of steppes lying at different elevations. While the lower steppes around Madaba receive rainfall and, in turn, Cheap Jordan Shoes, are blanketed with lush vegetation, the higher and southernmost steppes towards Ras an-Naqab are, in contrast, more barren. Little greenery interrupts the rugged mountains in shades ranging from gold to the warmest oranges and reds, and at times sliced by the green-grey of granite.
