Mrs. Catalanotti’s First Graders: Opinion Writing

The first graders in Mrs. Catalanotti’s class have been working very hard on their opinion writing. Each child has practiced writing an opinion on a given topic and supporting his or her opinion with a reason. After studying many authors, each child wrote his or her opinion about who the best author is.
