This unit plans consists of everything you need to get started implementing a genre study in grades 1-3. This unit covers narrative writings including: fiction, nonfiction, fairytales and fables. You can modify and add in different sub-genres as needed!

This set up as a writing workshop method, but modifications can be easily made to fit your class setup. You can change the amount of reading focus by adding in different reading mini lessons and assessments as you see fit. THIS IS A GROWING UNIT!! I will be adding in reading workshop mini lessons and unit outlines later. For now, this is a WRITING focused unit outline.

The plan consists of:

  • 6 week unit outline
  • 6 sample mini lessons
  • example assessment templates
  • student writing reflection sheets/checklists
  • teacher checklists
  • sample mentor text lists
  • anchor charts for fairytales/fables

This will help you ROCK your planning and preparing for a genre study. Genre studies are massively helpful in changing how your students view reading and writing different genres.
