Hi everyone! I hope you had a happy, happy Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I like to eat and I like to sleep. Win win! I'm enjoying these extra days off of school spending time with the fam, shopping, and of course, creating new things for my classroom! Here's what we'll be doing next week in writing.
One of the Common Core standards requires students to write an opinion piece. I've never really taught opinion pieces... I've done persuasive pieces in the past, but not opinion, so this is new for me. I decided that the bunnies will be writing about their favorite winter activity. So first things first is to create a graphic organizer to help them organize their thinking. I actually created two: one for my on-demand prompt and a blank one, should students decide to write opinion pieces in the future.

Alright, I'm off to snag some Black Friday deals. Good luck to all my fellow Black Friday shoppers!! :)
