STAAR Writing requires 4th grade students to state an opinion and explain reasons to support that opinion. During the writing process, brainstorming a topic to write about can be the most challenging part for our students. You can help with this process just by having a daily conversation with your child.
Using the topics below as a starting point, ask your child to tell you their opinion and support their opinion with 3 reasons. For example, if the topic is “a place you like to visit” your child could say “I like to visit Disney World because it has fun rides, I get to spend time with my family, and I get to eat lots of fun food shaped like Mickey.” Your child will even benefit if everyone in your family gave their opinion as well. This is a quick activity that can be done in the car, at the dinner table or as you're winding down for the day.
Thank you for continuing to support your child’s academic learning each and every day.
