Last week I had the opportunity to work on opinion writing in kindergarten. Oh my! So much fun!
Our units do introduce writing for a reason as a unit of study. However, I like to teach opinion writing spirally! As you know, kindergartners grow leaps and bounds in their transcription skills, so I want to give them plenty of opportunities to express their opinion in writing throughout the year.
We started with a question.
I introduced the opinion anchor chart… Here is one that is included in the unit.
Here is what they came up with!
|I think the best way to get around on my own is skates because I am very good and they are very fast. I love skates.|
|A skateboard is the best way to move places because they do awesome tricks. That is the best way to get around.|
|I think the best way is motorcycles because motorcycles are very fast.|
|The best way to get around is a motorcycle because it has sharp turns. It is very, very fast. I never fall off because I am an excellent driver.|
Oh my goodness! Isn’t kindergarten the BEST!
Here is what is included in the opinion writing in unit.
