• Writing Workshop

    As our children mature as writers, it's important to give them the opportunity to write using a variety of formats. Persuasive writing helps our 2nd Graders formulate specific reasons for their opinions, and provides an opportunity to research facts related to their opinions. As students develop an understanding of how writing can influence or change another's thoughts, feelings or actions, they can begin to understand the persuasive nature of the world around them.

    During this unit of study your child will:

    • learn the features of an Opinion/Persuasive Piece
    • collect information
    • learn how to organize information
    • plan, draft, revise, edit and publish 
    • share ideas/collaborate

    • use thinking maps to organize their research the city of his/her choice
    • create a persuasive travel brochure for another city brochure
