January Common Core Writing

Whew!  I have finally started to feel a little better after a very long recovery from a very minor surgery. So I apologize for the absence in the blogging world.

I've received many sweet emails regarding the Common Core Writing Activities for January and I'm happy to say that they are done and uploaded to TPT as of right now!!  Yay!  And if I do say so myself, I can't wait to let my kiddos do some of these writing activities.

The Opinion writing is probably my favorite this month.  In the spirit of authentic writing, the students will be placed in a real-world scenario.  It has snowed overnight and snow is covering the roads.  The students must write a letter to the superintendent or principal stating their opinion about school being closed due to inclement weather.  They must decide if school should be closed or not and provide reasons to support their opinions - how fun!

You can see the Preview below or download the Preview directly from my TPT store by clicking {HERE}.

I will probably be in and out between now and after Christmas, so please be safe and have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  God bless!
