Opinion Writing 1st Grade with Minilessons


An engaging opinion writing unit for students in first grade containing minilessons, graphic organizers, anchor charts, and all you need to publish your student work.

This was a super helpful resource that I used with a student with autism who needed a modified writing program for the year as he hadn’t done the first grade writing curriculum yet. I was able to use this opinion unit with him while the class did the same genre. The materials were organized and clear so that his ed tech could use them easily!” ~ Beth P.
