Try it out!
An
opinion
is a view or judgement about something, that is not necessarily based on facts. Your

opinion
is your own point of view:
what you think, what you prefer or how you feel.

For example...
"I think that every classroom should have a pet bearded dragon!"

- Stanley
"My favorite type of pizza is cheese, it is delicious!"
- Ms. Severance
"In my opinion, 3rd graders should have an extra recess every day."
- Third Grade Students Everywhere

In my opinion, the third grade class should have an extra recess every day.
