Writing an Opinion Unit - Freebie for Beginner Writers

 Free Opinion Writing Unit

For beginner writers

I am getting busy making things for our homeschool for the coming year, and one thing we always love to do is write! My youngest especially loves writing and always looks forward to sharing her opinion. But one thing that I always find tough to do is to sort through the writing my kids do during the year and pick out pieces for their learning portfolios. That is why I started making these units!

This one is ideal for kids who are just starting to write down complete sentences. Of course,e you could also help them out by writing their thoughts down for them, or by writing it down for them and having them copy what you wrote. 

I have included a few different options for kids on different levels of handwriting too. 

You'll also find guides throughout the unit that help you practice separating facts from opinions and adding reasons or 'why's' to their opinion statements.

There is one part that can be done at the beginning of the year and is fairly simple. It just involves discussing the difference between a fact and an opinion (I've included some practice questions you can do out loud together too!) and writing two opinions on a topic. 

The second half is meant to be done at the end of the year, or whenever you feel your learner is ready. It involves writing an opinion and why they have that opinion - in very simple terms of course!

There are optional covers you can use to keep their work organized or put it into their portfolios in this way. 

I really hope this helps you in your homeschool or classroom! You can download it below for free! all I ask is that you share the link to this post or my blog, not the google drive link when sharing. Thank you!
