A great picture to use as a writing prompt.

Persuasive - We completed a persuasive/opinion piece of writing on "Our Favorite Season."  We read several anchor texts modeling the the elements of this genre.  They included: "I Wanna Iguana", "Hey, Little Ant", "Earrings" The children had to pick their favorite season and come up with reasons to support their topics.  We used a graphic organizer before we began writing.   They wrote five paragraphs; intro, 3 paragraphs with reasons and a closing.
