Opinion Letter Writing Planner & Papers - CCSS Aligned: 3.W.1, 2.W.1
Greetings, friends! I designed these writing materials to go along with the new Calkins Units of Study for writer’s workshop. Writing about reading is a wonderful unit that guides students through writing opinion letters about their favorite books and characters.

As an extension to the unit, I have my students write a persuasive letter to a friend or family member of their choosing – trying to persuade them to read their favorite book. The writing planner assists students in choosing an audience, stating their opinion, and providing evidence from the text to support their opinion.

This kit also includes fun letter writing stationery in 5 different designs to choose from. Each design has a letter-format first page, middle page, and closing page.

Inspire those young authors with this engaging enrichment activity kit!
