Looking for help teaching writing to your thirds?
This narrative writing pack has everything that you need!
Here's what is included"
***A year at a glance writing progression for third grade.
***A list of mentor texts that would be a great support for teaching narrative text structures.
***An entire unit of lesson plans--four days of writing instruction per week and an EDITABLE template
***Six sets of progressive rubrics and an EDITABLE template for each one
------->For this set of lessons you are building to the ultimate goal of MASTERY for the standard of narrative writing. Each set of rubrics builds on a portion of the standard. The baseline and final product rubrics are similar so that you can properly chart the growth from the beginning of the unit to the end. We use both rubrics scores and percentage grades, so you see that listed in my unit as an option. I also have a copy of the rubric with just the rubric, and then also with just circles so that you can add the numbers or percentages you'd like. The final copy of each rubric is editable except for the standard.
***Narrative prompt ideas
***Brainstorming and Draft sheets for your students to use at your discretion.
***Mini peer editing checklists...also EDITABLE if you need that!
***Sample texts that I wrote myself for your students to use as a guide for grading. There is an editable version for you to use if you'd like to write some sample texts yourself.
---------->With the sample texts, have the students work on grading based on the rubric that you present them with. This will help them to not only find things to improve on in each piece, but know more specifically what your expectations are for them as well.
***Teaching Support Anchor Posters for sentence patterns, transitional words and phrases, and quotation marks
