Today I introduced "Opinion Writing". We first started off by discussing what an opinion is. We came up with a definition that an opinion is a personal belief, idea or thought about something that cannot be solved. An opinion cannot necessarily be considered "right" or "wrong". When giving an opinion it is important to support your opinion with one, two or three reasons as to why you believe what you do. We practiced with comparing two pictures and giving our opinion on which one we liked better and why! We will continue working with opinion writing for the next several weeks and will be eventually writing our own opinions on several topics including book reviews, animals and much more!
