Workshop Wednesday - Persuasive Writing

I am linking up with a fantastic little blogger named "Jivey" over at Ideas by Jivey for her Workshop Wednesday linky.

This week's theme is persuasive writing. I love this topic. I love persuasive writing.

Here are some books I use:

Here is an activity I shared for the Christmas themed persuasive book "Peter Claus and the Naughty List". I shared this back in December but just uploaded it to Dropbox if you want to pick up a copy.

Here is a checklist I use. Here are small copies for the students.

Here is a bundle of resources that I use in my classroom:

Here is a graphic organizer I use.

I have used this book before, had my students research a dog breed and write a persuasive report on why that would be the best breed for their family. I don't have any resources to share for that activity, maybe this summer.....

Yesterday I read a great post by Tonya at Tonya's Treats for Teachers with a freebie about arguing for or against candy in vending machines at schools.

Can't wait to read all the posts and find some new books and ideas for next year!!! Hope you found something you can use in your classroom!


  1. That puppy book looks super cute. It is new to me, I will have to check it out.

    I've heard about the book Should There Be Zoos-but I haven't been able to buy it! It's always on my wishlist.
