12 Opinion Mentor Texts

EEEK! We started opinion writing last week...only my favorite writing genre to teach!

I've got my favorite mentor texts ready to go, and even found a few new books I can't wait to use!

Traditionally, I use Duck! Rabbit!, I Wanna Iguana, and I Wanna New Room for my opinion writing unit. You can find all the books shown above here.

Over the summer, I stumbled upon the Stella Writes series, and used the one for narrative and informational writing already and I LOVED them (as did my sweet seconds)! I haven't used Stella Writes an Opinion before, but I'm sure it won't disappoint!

I also came across The Perfect Pet, and was in love. I have dogs, so naturally, I'm pro pet. Most of my students either have pets or want pets, so this is going to be puuurrr-fect { see what I did there :) }

I like a having a variety of books for my students to peruse as they are writing their own opinion pieces, and these books do just the job!
