Opinion Writing in K

We have been doing opinion writing in Kindergarten. I modeled 2 different ones.

I read the book, Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! by Mo Willems, and my K writers discussed in pairs if the Pigeon should drive the bus. This is our shared writing:


We also read Duck! Rabbit! by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld. Students shared why they thought it was a duck or a rabbit. Here is our shared writing:

LOVE hearing the ideas of my K writers!



CF Awareness

A very sweet boy, who I look at as my own, has CF. He is 9 years old. He is the strongest, bravest, sweetest, and happiest boy I know despite what he goes through day in and day out. The last several months have been a struggle. My heart breaks each day for Cayden.

From Cindy the mother of Cayden:

With a broken heart💔 and tears 😢 in my eyes, nothing is more painful than trying to smile and remain positive, but after many tests, being poked and prodded, the person physically changes and they suffer with sadness. I know many of you do not give a hoot about this message because, of course, the cystic fibrosis has not affected you. You do not know what it’s like to have fought the fight, or have a loved one who leads or has lead a battle against cystic fibrosis. If you know someone who has led a battle against cystic fibrosis , still struggling, or who passed, please spread Cystic Fibrosis Awareness to support, respect, and remembrance. 💜
