They did such a great job on their Valentine's writing! They wrote thoughtful compliments with reasons why! Plus had great conventions and use of commas!!! (finally right!?) Now we will move to deeper opinion writing. They will watch next week the two videos (on the left side) to help guide their thinking and how to convince someone else of your opinion (using because, facts, answers, reasoning) and then they will write a letter! Thank you for all the envelopes! After they have decided whom they would like to share their opinion with, they will write their letter. My goal is to have them addressed and sent in the mail on Friday to Central Office to get stamped for postage on Monday!! I am sure we will have lots of interesting and fun people and companies to share our opinion with!
