Persuasive texts

This is a sheet that contains persuasive sentence starters. Cut the sentence starters our and give to children to use while writing their persuasive sentence, or paragraph, depending on the grade level. You could use these to show how persuasive writing differs from other types of writing, and the clues that we look for in writing to tell the type of text it is.
