Are you looking for some FUN digital opinion writing projects that you can implement with your students? Digital writing projects are GREAT to use in both in person and virtual classrooms. They are easy to assign, require no prep work and include ALL instructional videos needed to teach a topic.
The Best Season Opinion Writing
Which season do you find to be the best season? Let your students pick what season they think is the absolute best and defend why. Students will LOVE this digital activity, and it can be assigned at ANY time of the year. You might be shocked to read what students choose!
Cat vs. Dog
It is an age old argument… are cats better? Are dogs better? Is it best to let your students decide? During this fun project, students will read aloud a text about Cat vs. Dog, laugh a lot, then pick which animal they think is better and defend why.
The Sweetest Person
Who is the sweetest person in your life? Let students write about the sweetest person in their life and describe why they think that this person is so sweet. These heartfelt projects make great presents for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or just because!
The Best Part of Me
What is the best part about each of your students? Find out with this endearing writing project in which students will read The Best Part of Me, then decide what part of them they are the most proud of and why. I LOVE how heartfelt students get with this project, and it is so interesting to see which part of them they identify as being “the best” part of their bodies. You will be sure to learn so much about your kiddos!
What is your students’ favorite book? Let them tell you and defend WHY this book is so great! I love this project because I allow students to bring their favorite books in from home. Then, we spend time picking out reasons that this book is amazing. Students will then write their reasons into a persuasive piece telling you why you HAVE to read their favorite book. This makes a great piece to share with parents at conferences or to keep in a digital portfolio as well.
Hey, Little Ant
Should you squish the ant? Should you let him go? After reading aloud Hey, Little Ant, let your students decide what they think you/the boy in the book/they should do. This is sure to bring up a powerful debate in your classroom about right vs. wrong, but will also encourage students to look at BOTH sides of a story before forming an opinion.
The Best Candy
What is your favorite candy? What makes it so great? Let students pick their favorite candy, and describe why they think this candy is better than all the rest with this fun digital writing activity.
