Persuasive Writing

Persuasive Writing
by Jayla 

Persuasive writing in Glenridge means convincing someone to do something by paper.  In 5B we’re convincing our principal into letting us make a school newspaper.  We wrote her a  persuasive letter and she said YES.  Some ways we have learned to be persuasive is by reading persuasive books.  The books we read were Earrings by. Judith Viorst, I Wanna New Room By. Karen Orloff, Hey, Little Ant By. Phillip and Hannah Hoose. 
Some of the topics that our fifth graders are writing on are. . . . .
Leah is writing why her summer camp should have a soccer team, Dillon is writing a letter to his parents, convincing them they should let him play on a tackle football team, Kaleigh is writing why kids should design their own room, and my topic is on stricter gun laws in America.
