Product Details

Scaffolding is breaking up learning into manageable chunks for early learners to chew on and then providing them with a tool for digesting each bite—or concept.

Here's the theme-based support you need to simplify opinion writing: a model that clarifies its purpose, an activity that motivates children to practice writing the genre, and reproducibles that reinforce Common Core skills.

Great for whole class instruction, independent learning, or homework.
