Since many of the essays that are written later in school are persuasive, it is helpful to start first graders with writing their opinion pieces. Expressing their viewpoint about a topic is important for first graders to put into writing. Many times first graders can easily verbalize what they think, but writing their opinion on a variety of topics takes practice. There is a format that the first graders need to follow. In this quiz, the students will answer questions about what should be included in their opinion pieces as well as practice answering questions about their opinions.
