Students learned how to use the "opinion sandwich" graphic organizer organize their thinking when writing an opinion piece. This is one of many ways students learned how to express their opinions during this unit of study. For some children, having a visual organizer can be a helpful way to organize thinking. The underlining in color on the piece we wrote as a class is not something students are expected to do. I did this as a way to help children see how each part of the "sandwich" came together in the final written piece.
