Would You Rather Opinion Starters and a Freebie

Do you like, "Would You Rather..." questions? I have created a way to practice more opinion writing in the classroom using the would you rather questions. Your students will start thinking about and wanting to express their opinion for the given prompts. 
Would You Rather Opinion Starters has 40 writing prompts that ask students a "Would You Rather..." question. The student decides which of the two items they would want to do or have and write about it stating their opinion, listing three reasons to support their opinion, and ending with a closing statement. 

This pack has a FREE sample: Would you rather meet a fairy or an elf? Click the picture below and try this resource in your classroom today.
