I Wanna What?

Introduce persuasive writing by reading the book I Wanna Iguana by Karen Kaufman Orloff. In this word choice lesson learners listen as the teacher reads the book aloud. The teacher stops to discuss persuasive vocabulary and the difference between begging and persuading. Pre-writing strategies include a graphic organizer based on the book ideas, as well as an example letter modeled by the teacher. Pupils then practice writing persuasive letters to their parents.
