Persuasive Writing

I was a little nervous about teaching persuasive writing this year! Teaching this writing unit is a first for me. We started by writing the principal a letter about getting a class pet. 

Students had to write a letter to persuade a family member.
I think the letters came out great!
These lessons come from the book Explorations in Nonfiction Writing for Kindergarten by Tony Stead and Linda Hoyt.


  1. Melissa,
    I love that you posted these writing samples with the children reading them. SO precious. I would get every one of them what they wanted- so they did a great job! :)

  2. Miss Clancy,

    I have saved many of your posts related to writing and look forward to doing some writing workshops with my very own kindergartener at home this summer. I am looking forward to the fun!

  3. Wow, I'm so impressed with what your kids write. They are in excellent shape for first grade. (I wish they were coming my way!)

  4. Thanks to all of you for your wonderful compliments! Some of the letters are so funny! Tammy, I know you have a great post on persuasive writing and I hope to look at that over the summer!

  5. Wow!! What wonderful writers (and readers) you have. You did a great job of teaching them about persuasive writing. As always, thanks for sharing!!!
