Writing

This nine weeks we are working on opinion writing . The students will be writing an opinion piece using the "Reading Must Know" of cause and effect. They will be writing about the causes and effects of getting to go to the PBIS celebration each nine weeks. They will tell their opinion of the causes and effects of how a student should or should not act. Not only will their writing tell their opinion, use the "Reading Must Know", but it will also remind students how we should act at school. The content vocabulary words for opinion writing are opinion, concluding statement, topic, linking words, transition words, reasons, and belief. See the video below to learn the parts of an opinion piece.
