    2.W.3.1  I can write a logically connected paragraph or paragraphs that introduce an opinion with a concluding statement or section and multiple reasons to explain why a certain course of action should be followed.

    Yesterday I asked you to think of a pet or 2 that you would like to have.  Today I want you to write a persuasive paragraph. Try to persuade your adult to let you have that pet.


    Remember the key features of a persuasive paragraph:

    • It includes ideas to convince the reader.
    • Has a main idea sentence.
    • Uses reasons and facts to support the main idea.
    • May use persuasive words to ask for action (must, need, should).


    Here is an example of a persuasive paragraph.  In this paragraph, the student is trying to persuade the teacher to get a classroom pet.


         I think we should have a turtle for a classroom pet.  A turtle is very easy to take care of, and it is also very interesting to watch.  Caring for a turtle is very easy and takes very little time. All you have to do is give it some food and water every day and clean its tank once or twice a week.  I feed my dog every day. It’s easy. The children in our class can take turns caring for the turtle. Watching a turtle is also very interesting. I like to watch it move.  Sometimes the turtle doesn’t move. I think we should get a turtle because it is easy to care for and fun to look at.

    If I Wanted a Pet Paragraph


    2.CA.3:  I can solve real-world problems involving addition and subtraction within 100 in situations involving lengths that are given in the same units (e.g., by using drawings, such as drawings or rulers and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem).


    Today is Quiz day!  Good luck!
