Fact and Opinion signs
Old 11-25-2007, 10:13 PM
 

Depending on how much you have already taught fact and opinion, for review I use individual F and O signs. Using index cards, I have written fact on one side (in one color) and opinion on the other side (using a different color) then stapled to a popsicle stick. We read a descriptive piece and stop at the end of each sentence. Students hold up their sticks with the side they think the statement represents. This is a quick review for me to see who gets it and who doesn't, plus they like holding up the signs. You could also have students write one of each kind of statements, put them all in a bag, and draw from the bag, allowing the class to practice on their own statements with the signs.
