This fourth grade Personal Narrative Writing Unit is just what you need to teach this skill! This unit has kid-friendly rubrics, anchor charts, graphic organizers, and even centers! With the included mentor text and lesson plans, you will be able to effortlessly guide your students through writing a personal narrative!

When it comes to writing, there is so much we want (and need) to teach our students. However, we cannot focus on all of it all at once or we will cause our students to hate writing. I have broken this down into easy to implement lesson plans and have included all of the materials you need. This unit can be implemented at an easy pace---spread out over four weeks, or can be condensed to be taught in a shorter time period.

What's Included in this Personal Narrative Writing Unit:

  • Mentor Text
  • Rubric & Checklists
  • 12 Easy to Implement Lesson Plans
  • 6 Centers
  • Graphic Organizers
  • Posters (These anchor charts can also be printed and put in a writing notebook)
  • UPDATE: Now includes a digital (Google Slides) version of the resource! Learn more here.
