OK….So, you’ve got Wonders and you see that there is a Genre Writing piece in the back of each unit, but you’re asking yourself, “How do I get started?” These lesson plans are for you! After implementing this unit in 3rd grade classrooms, I have written lesson plans that will walk you through each lesson.
These lesson plans support the personal narrative activity in McGraw Hill – Wonders Unit 1 Genre Writing for Grade 3. Within each lesson plan you will be given “teacher talk” to help you get started. In some mini-lessons, I have created my own examples to make content more student-friendly. Each writing phase within the personal narrative is addressed: Expert Model, Prewrite, Draft, Revise, Proofread/Edit and Publish.
Be sure to check out the Personal Narrative Bundle
unit which contains anchor charts, labels for interactive notebooks (or Writer's Notebooks), graphic organizers and practice activities.
