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 or for a mini lesson on opinion writing. This FREEBIE includes one page with picture choices of a plane or a car). The page says “Which do you like better? Why?” then it has five blank lines for students to write on to tell why they think their choice is the best. Students love telling which item they like better. This activity encourages students to give the reason why they think their choice is better. 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.

Emergent Reader: My Pp Book: Sight Words (we, like, the)
Oct

2017

This emergent reader, My Pp Book, is connected to several CCGPS listed below. This 12 page book is designed so that you can copy the book, cut in half, staple, and then it is ready for use. The 12 pages consist of a title page “My Pp Book,” eight pages including a black and white picture that begins with /p/ at the top of each page and a sentence under the picture. These eight pages include the sentence “We like the (then the word to match picture is shown, such as “We like the pizza”). The 8 pictures included are pig, pan, pizza, pumpkin, popcorn, penguin, pie, and pancakes. At the end of the book, there are three optional activity pages (for differentiation) which may be included depending on the level of your students. You may want to include all or some of these for intervention pages or extension activity pages. One of these optional pages requires students to circle the uppercase and lowercase letter being used in the book, one requires students to write 5 uppercase and 5 lowercase letters, and the last one requires students to write 5 words beginning with the letter. For an extension activity, students may also add a second sentence to each page giving more details about the picture. Students can benefit from this reader by tracking print, identifying spaces between words, identifying particular letters of the alphabet, recognizing sounds (beginning, middle, and ending) in each word, and reading sight words and grade level text. For extension activities, students could add another sentence to each page giving details about each picture shown. The black and white pictures allow students the opportunity to color the pictures. This reader is great for guided reading groups, homework, or literacy center activities.
