This 4-5 week personal narrative writing unit will help you teach your second grade students to write personal narratives (small moments stories) and memoirs!

These lessons first teach students how to write personal narratives. Then, students complete a mini memoir project in which they tell a story from an adult’s childhood.

This unit is designed to be taught toward the beginning or middle of the year but can be used anytime you want to teach students how to write narratives.

In this unit, students will learn how to:

- Plan and write a personal narrative on a single, focused topic

- Create a strong beginning and ending

- Add details to their writing to show what characters did, felt, and said

- Use temporal words to show the order of events and passage of time

- Choose specific words

- Describe the setting of a story

- Correctly use writing conventions

- Combine sentences

- Revise and edit independently and with a partner

This unit includes:

- 22 detailed minilessons that will last a little over 4 weeks

- Daily language arts/grammar exercises that complement the minilessons

- Clear unit goals, daily objectives, and Common Core alignment

- Posters, visual aids, and materials to go with the minilessons (all color materials also have black and white versions included)

- Printable writing paper

- A writing stages display and materials to make a genre bulletin board

- A list of mentor texts to accompany the unit

- FAQs and important information to help you set up the writing workshop

- Rubrics, anecdotal note forms, and other materials to help you get organized

- A narrative writing rubric that you can use throughout the year

- 155 total pages of materials and resources
