This activity uses a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to compose opinion pieces in which they tell a reader the topic or the name of the book they are "writing" about and state an opinion or preference about the topic or book. The topic for this opinion writing page is “playground activities.” 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 includes a title page and 1 page containing picture choices of two playground activities including swinging and sliding. Students tell which they think is the best. The page says “In my opinion (it shows the two picture choices) _____is better because…,” then it has six blank lines for students to write on to tell why they think their choice is the best. Students love telling which item they like the best. This activity encourages students to give the reason why they think their choice is the best. Teachers can also use these writing activities as a whole class activity. Assigning these activities for a homework assignment can include parents in helping increase their child’s writing skills. However you choose to use these activities, I hope your students develop a love for writing.

About the Seller
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.
