What's your opinion?

We have been working on our opinion unit in writing. We know that an opinion is how you feel about something and isn't necessarily a true statement for all.
For example, "Chocolate chip cookies are the best cookies ever!"  I've gotten some groans from making that statement. 

This week we read Santa's Reindeer Games and The Elf on the Shelf. After reading each story we talked about what would be neat about being an elf or a reindeer.  After making our lists, I asked everyone what they would prefer to be and everyone came up and graphed in the SMARTboard. On Monday we are going to list our reasons for choosing what we did and then we will write our opinion pieces. 

I'm hoping to have these done by Thursday so that you will be able to enjoy them if you are able to attend the Winter concert. Speaking of the Winter Concert, there will be performances at both 9:00 and 1:00. If you are attending the 1:00 performance, you are welcome to take your child home with you after the concert. You will just need to come to the classroom to check them out.
