Lloyd Harbor Persuasive Essays: Third graders were proud to display their “Persuasive Essays” based upon things they already know about. Some wrote thank you essays to staff members at their school, including Mr. Paul, Ms. Perez, Ms. Rampi, or the bus drivers. Others wrote about pollution and encouraged others to be a hero and pick up your trash! More convincing essays asked us to stop overbuilding to save animals, or to visit Brooklyn! Students from Ms. Craco’s class were excited to share what they wrote, but even more excited to share what they learned from their fellow classmates.
