Persuasive OREO Writing: Great idea for middle school! It's a way easier way to explain persuasive papers to a younger crowd. I also feel that it could maybe only be a prop because any paper writing require more attention and more description than that.
Great idea for conjunctions! Love the paper clip joining two sentences. 5 Conjunctions with clips - compound sentences! You can use this with my game/task cards for sentences! Pictures support learning at Looks-Like-Language!
Accompanied with actually giving out Oreos, this handout is a creative and effective persuasive essay graphic organizer because it teaches (and scaffolds for) students how to frame opinion pieces on topic with supporting points.
