This narrative writing unit includes a Narrative Writing anchor chart to display in your writing center. The anchor chart comes in 10 different chevron print colors. Display the anchor chart in your writing center with several examples written by students to highlight the features of a narrative piece.
The Bats at the Library narrative writing unit also includes graphic organizers for students to record events of the story in a beginning, middle, and end format. After recording the events using sketches and notes, the students can create a piece of writing retelling the story in their own words using lined writing paper in 3 different formats offering various levels of support using transitional word prompts.
You and your students can also keep track of interesting words found throughout the story and relate them to more commonly used synonyms.
Author Brian Lies uses many words to describe the movement of the bats throughout the story. I have included a graphic organizer for students to keep track of the movement/action words.
All of the graphic organizers included in this unit come in multiple versions allowing you to use the graphic organizer specifically for Bats in the Library or you may choose to use the generic organizer to fit with any narrative story.
