A Black Friday FLASH FREEBIE!!

Hello and happy Black Friday to you!! I want to pop in for a minute and share my very special Black Friday freebie with you!

All I ask is that you leave feedback in exchange! 

I have a great essay writing pack that helps prep students for their end-of-the-year testing while also developing strong opinion writers! 

This set is perfect for your 5th graders and timely for the “holiday” today! 
With this set…
The students are taken step-by-step through the process! They begin with reading three sources on a common topic. The pages have space in the margins to write notes about their thoughts. Then, they answer constructed response questions to start forming their opinions. Finally, a set of graphic organizers walk them through setting up a strong opinion essay. Lined paper is included for them to publish their essays on! 

This resource meets multiple CCSS! Some standards addressed are:

Quote accurately from a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.

Determine two or more main ideas of a text and explain how they are supported by key details; summarize the text.

Draw on information from multiple print or digital sources, demonstrating the ability to locate an answer to a question quickly or to solve a problem efficiently.

Explain how an author uses reasons and evidence to support particular points in a text, identifying which reasons and evidence support which point(s).

Integrate information from several texts on the same topic in order to write or speak about the subject knowledgeably.CCSS.ELA-
