For writers workshop we read a wonderful book titled “Miss Brooks Loves Books! and I don’t!” This book helped the children to understand the difference between an opinion and a fact. After the story we had a lively discussion about “what is an opinion?” and “what is a fact?” Here is a list of some of what they shared:

examples of an opinion –
– a black cat is the best color for a cat
– sharing what you like or don’t like is just an opinion
– sharing what you think or believe is an opinion

examples of a fact –
– it is something that is true
– something that is true to everyone not just you
– mailboxes are where we put our mail
