Persuasive Writing Frames
The frames guide students to write to persuade. This is a super helpful resource when teaching ﬁrst and second graders about Persuasive writing.
This resource is a PDF file. Inside you will find:
These sheets have speciﬁc persuasive ideas and then there is a blank sheet for you or your students to decide how they might want to persuade someone to think their way!
What Ideas are included:
• Persuade your teacher to play a favorite game.
• Pretend you are a turkey and persuade the farmer not to serve
you forThanksgiving dinner.
• Persuade your principal that your school needs another recess.
• Persuade your mom or dad to buy you a pet.
A writing form for students to use to explain why they think a
particular piece is or was the most convincing and persuade the
class to think their way.
• List of convincing words and phrases.
How it works
These sheets are intended to be used as a rough draft for a persuasive piece and then for students to rewrite a good copy. However, these sheets may be used whatever way you might like to use them. When I used some of these frames, I actually played a class game that students “convinced” me to play and also had the class vote on which letters or pieces were the most convincing and why.
These sheets can easily be used in a writing station, as an introduction for writing to persuade, to enrich stronger writers, or to remediate those in upper graders who need support with persuasive writing. These pages easily guide your students to sequentially write to persuade in an easy way.
