Persuasive Writing: OREO....updated with PDF files

I am gearing up to teach persuasive writing. I ran across an Oreo reference for a graphic organizer and being a lover of graphic organizers, acronymns and of course OREO's...I had to work something up.  I'm also working on a powerpoint that I hope to share in a few days!



When I view this documents in Google Reader they look wonky, but when I download them and view them, they look great. Let me know if you want them and your copy is "wonky" and I'll reload them as PDF files. 


UPDATE!!!
Here are the pdf's in case you don't have the same fonts loaded that I have used and you prefer the look of what you see here.  Graphic organizer   Poster



Edit to add: I had a problem. I accidently gave people permission to edit, and someone changed the settings so that no one else could download these. I *think* I fixed it. I have the settings now so that anyone with the link can view the docs, but no one but me can edit! I hope that helps and I'm sorry if you needed them and couldn't get to them!

  3. Ian/Jen,
    I never made the powerpoint! I ended up pulling the pdf into Active Inspire and used it that way. Too many ideas, not enough time! I'm sure you feel my pain! :D

  9. I am trying to click on the PDF option and it doesn't seem to be working. I keep getting this error message: Sorry we are unable to retrieve the document for viewing or you don't have permission to view the document. Any tips? I've tried two different browsers in case that was the problem. Thanks!

  23. WOW!
    What a terrific idea! Thanks so much for sharing.
    The persuasive essay is one of the essays I have to teach to my college students so I'm going to use this idea and bring some mini Oreos.
    Even tho' they are older, they still enjoy something "different".
    I have an early elementary blog.
    Everything's FREE on my website (1,000's of printables).

  25. LOVE this! Thank you. It worked really well with my 1st graders as well. Your acronym really helped some of them remember what is necessary in persuasive writing (without even having to look at the organizer). It made for a great lesson.
