This is a year-long writing unit. All 3rd grade writing standards are included in the packet, but this unit could easily be adjusted to use in a 2nd or 4th grade classroom. The packet is broken up into 36 weeks. Over the course of the year, students will learn how to write: Opinion pieces, Informative/Explanatory pieces (How To writing, Mini-Biographies), and Creative Narratives (Fiction and Non-fiction). There will also be holiday themed writing prompts throughout the packet (Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas) Each day has a different writing topic.
