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!
