I teach 5th and have to start this soon. Any tips for what works best for you to teach personal essay writing?

A small tip is to have them avoid using the pronoun "I" now. Having tutored older students in writing, it is difficult for students to grasp the idea of stating an opinion without stating "I." One exception is when telling of a specific personal experience that relates to the opinion.
