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?” This packet is for you! After implementing this unit in 3rd grade classrooms, I have included everything you will need to successfully teach this unit including teacher lesson plans, student handouts, anchor charts, and labels for Writer’s Notebooks.
This packet supports the personal narrative activity in McGraw Hill – Wonders Unit 1 Genre Writing for Grade 3. Each section within the personal narrative is addressed: Expert Model, Prewrite, Draft, Revise, Proofread/Edit and Publish. This packet is divided into 3 sections: 1.Teacher Notes, 2.Student Handouts and Labels for Writer’s Notebooks, and 3. Instructional Support documents.
This packet contains “Ready to Print” documents for both student and teacher to successfully teach the following mini-lessons:
• Beginning, Middle and End
• Descriptive Language
• Strong Conclusions
• Strong Leads
• Strategies for Peer Review Routines
