Opinion Writing: Favorite Fruit (Kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade)
The topic for this opinion writing packet is "favorite fruit." These opinion writing activities are great to put in a writing center for students to choose which pictures to use to give their opinions about. This pack includes a title page with directions and 7 pages with each page containing picture choices of two fruits. The seven pages include: apples/oranges, grapes/bananas, strawberries/blueberries, cherries/lemons, watermelon/pineapple, red apples/green apples, and pears/plums. Each page includes two picture choices for students to choose between to tell which they think is the best.
I am a kindergarten teacher with 22 years of teaching experience! I received my Doctor of Education degree in Teacher Leadership from Walden University in June 2010. The title of my doctoral study is "Writing Conferences in Kindergarten: Using Feedback to Enhance Student Writing." My passion is teaching writing to my students and providing feedback for their writing experiences. I love teaching kindergarten. It is amazing to see students enter the classroom not even knowing how to hold a pencil and watching them become readers and writers by the end of the year. I love teaching in small groups and rotating student groups with literacy centers and math centers.
