Lessons Covering:

Week 17: To Understand the Difference Between Expository & Narrative Writing

During this week your students will begin to transition to narrative writing. This week will be spent exploring multiple sources of writing and understanding the differences between the genres.

• Writing Conventions Covered: Verb Tenses & Linking Verbs
• Spelling Lesson: "-ay" words
• Activity Sheets Included:

Week: 18: Explore Narrative Writing

This week students will slowing begin exploring narrative writing. The narrative graphic organizer will be used. It will focus on the basic narrative timeline with a beginning, middle, and an end. We will color code to help associate words with different parts of the story. During these first few weeks we will work on retelling of stories to build confidence and understanding in our young authors.

Weeks 19 - 20: To Explore Narrative Writing Through Retelling a Story

During these two weeks writers will expand their retellings with more details. These lessons will move our young writers to retellings with three events before arriving at the climax. We will also focus on keeping our introductions and conclusions relatively short compared to the supporting information. We will be encouraging students to elaborate, use good action words, and a quotation. These two weeks we will model, model, model. The more we model examples the better our writers will become.

• Writing Conventions Covered: Quotations - "Tell Me What to Say" Activity & Verb Tenses - "What's Your Tense???" Activity
• Spelling Lesson: "eel" / "eal" words
• Activity sheets included:
✓ Cartoon Quotations Sheet
