This is a first grade narrative writing unit. It was originally designed for grade 1 ESL students. However, when it was shared with general education grade 1 teachers, they found it useful and rigorous. It includes: concise mini-lessons, anchor charts and student work samples for each lesson in the unit. Teachers will find this unit to be broken down into manageable pieces that take the anxiety out of writing (especially for ESL students) and increase students' writing confidence. There is also an assessment page (that directly aligns with the content taught in this unit) for teachers to use to assess student performance at the end of the unit.
