Learning Objective

This is a Step by Step detailed Narrative Writing unit for 2nd Grade it has everything in it for you to teach narrative writing from start to finish for up to 8 weeks or more! This unit is fully differentiated and includes various writing center activities, follows the Writer's Workshop model and will save you hours each week of planning.

It can be used with Personal Narrative or Fictional Narrative. This unit has differentiated story maps and graphic organizers that are helpful for new and experienced writers and there are lots of opportunities for students to practice and build on their skills.

It works well for your lowest learners, ESL learner and your top learners.
