✏ Persuasive Writing - 3rd grade

We wrote persuasive letters to Mr. Adams. We convinced him that we should have a longer recess! We used the "OREO" method. We stated "O" - our opinion. We stated "R"- reasons for our opinion. We stated "E"- explanations of our reasons.Then, we restated "O"- our opinion. Mr. Adams came into our room and read a few letters aloud. We persuaded him to give us a longer recess!!! We were able to enjoy a longer recess yesterday.
