We are currently working on persuasive writing in my 5th-grade ELAR class. One of my favorite things to teach is writing. It’s always so rewarding to me when I have a student or parent tell me that they hated writing until they entered my class.
It makes me do a happy dance.
It’s always hard to motivate students to write when they detest writing. My strong belief is to start teaching writing as young as kindergarten. I don’t think students really hate writing, but they don’t know how to write so the concept is overwhelming to so many students.
You do is my teaching model.

It’s so important not to skip a step in the writing process. You need to teach preciously each step. It typically takes me about 3 weeks from start to finish when I’m teaching a particular writing genre.
I created these persuasive writing prompts that include a persuasive writing anchor chart, a persuasive writing graphic organizer, and persuasive writing prompts for the Christmas season. The persuasive writing prompts are silly, but fun. I’m really excited to share them with my 5th-grade students this week.
