Reflection: Joy Fact and Opinion Writing - Section 3: Closure


This lesson is a keeper.  The kids liked writing facts and, certainly opinions, about their own preferences in school, and really enjoyed switching papers with friends and locating the facts and opinions from that student's paper.

When returning the papers to them, it's a little confusing because in order for the F/O paper to match the F/O writing, it must be from two different students.  I just stapled the opinion writing on top of the F/O paper and gave both to the author of the paper.
