Opinion Writing with Miss Turie's Magic Creatures

Sep 30, 2018

I have seem many lessons out there on opinion writing about pets.  There are some great mentor texts to use that support students in this writing process
  •  The Perfect Pet by Margie Palatini
  • Cats Vs. Dogs by Elizabeth Carney
  • One Word for Sophia by Jim Averbeck
  • Can I Have A Stegosaurus, Mom? Can I Please? 
  • I Wanna Iguana by Karen Orloff
 But I recently had one sent to me from Innovation Press.


Miss Turie owns a pet shop and she has one guarantee: to find the right pet for you!  A young boy comes in to find his perfect pet and Miss Turie shows him around.  Each creature is mythical and magical, but not right for him.
This book is colorful and fun.  It is full of speech bubbles and curious magic.  One of my favorite parts about this book are the last four pages.  One these pages, the author shares a little history about each of the mythical creatures within the story.  This lends itself really well to opinion writing :)

This freebie includes images of each "pet" within this book.  Students pick the pet that would be best for them.  Then they explain why.  There are differentiated versions of the webs and paper choices.
