MAKING PERSUASIVE WRITING FUN AND EASY













Persuasive essay can also be known as opinion essay.  Its main aim is to convince, persuade and also sway the opinion of the reader.

Let the children know the difference between Opinion and fact. Give children several examples




It is very important to write about the children’s interest because this will make them write with so much passion. For a beginner, children can start with a five paragraph essay: not too long and not too short. It must also be convincing and includes facts and quotes from experts in that field.

Children should know the acronym O.R.E.O. bring the biscuit to the class and paste the pack on the board. Give it the biscuits to the children that can tell you the meaning of the acronym after teaching.

Teachers must remember that they start from children’s interest. Things you know they will like to discuss. For example;
·       Children should choose their bedtime
·       Break time should be for one hour
When we ask children to write what they are emotional about; it becomes very easy to teach them

Give children a printed copy of a persuasive essay and let them identify the different parts.

Games
·       Divide the children into groups and hand over cardboards and glue to them.
·       Give the children the different parts of a persuasive essay and ask the groups to glue it on the cardboard using the format above.
·       Go round and check their work.
 Ask the children to write their favorite food and three reasons why it is their favorite food.

Happy Teaching!
