This unit was written to help teachers guide young students through the process of writing a simple narrative. The unit is broken down into 5 mini-lessons using an engaging fall topic....pumpkins.
This unit ties in well with guided reading activities using leveled readers and high interest fall picture books. It is a topic my first graders love each year.They are always so proud of their accomplishments!
The lessons guide young writers through the writing process using a framework that builds throughout the week. The format is easy for students to implement. Lessons can be used during direct instruction or independently for your more independent students.
It is a wonderful way to differentiate based on learning needs and styles.
It is aligned to CC standards for first and second graders.
Thanks for checking it out!
