This 5 week narrative writing unit will help you teach your second grade students to write comic strips and realistic fiction! This pack has everything you need, from complete narrative writing lesson plans to writing paper to posters to writing rubrics and more.

The lessons begin by having students make comic strips. Through these engaging lessons, students practice key skills like writing dialogue and including characters’ thoughts. Then, students begin applying those same skills to writing realistic fiction books.

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

In this narrative writing unit, students will learn how to:

- Create comic strips with speech bubbles, thought bubbles, and temporal words

- Plan and write realistic fiction

- Create a strong beginning and ending to a story

- Describe the setting and characters of a story

- Add details and vivid verbs to their writing to show what characters did

- Use dialogue to tell what characters said

- Use details to show how characters felt, and how their feelings changed throughout the story

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

- Correctly use writing conventions, including apostrophes for possessives and contractions

- Combine sentences and vary sentence beginnings

- Revise and edit their narrative writing independently and with a partner

This unit includes:

- 27 detailed narrative writing minilessons that will last about 5-6 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
