This is an awesome end of the year narrative writing project for your class! In this unit, students will work as a class to come up with a book series concept a la Junie B and Cam Jansen, and each student will write one of the stories in the series! Our class wrote a series about our class!
Unit 6 of my Year of Writing Common Core Aligned Curriculum provides everything you need to plan, teach, and assess students' narrative writing skills with a fun project in which students individually write a story to go in a class series! Written and used in second grade but easily adaptable for grades 1-3, as the standards are nearly identical.
This unit includes:
Series Mentor Text List
Anchor Charts & Sequence of events
Series Element pages
Printable Anchor Charts
Student Planning Pages
Narrative Rubric for assessment and
Student Narrative Rubrics
Reflection and Feedback pages
Class Progress Tracker
All of these pages can be used again and again any time you teach or touch on narrative writing!
