Thank you for checking out my Narrative Writing Unit! I used this unit with my own first graders and saw a tremendous amount of growth in their writing. I feel that this unit can also easily be used with Kindergarten, first, and second grade.
These narrative lessons help students with the following skills:
-How to write about something that has happened to them
-How to stretch an idea/event across several pages
-How to focus and zoom in on a small story
-How to add details to make a story more interesting
There are 11 lesson plans included, although this unit took me about 1.5 months to fully teach, as I revisited certain lessons and took cues from my students for the longevity the unit needed to be.
This unit goes really well with my Launching the Writer's Workshop Unit, also Lucy Calkins inspired. Feel free to look at the preview to get a glimpse!
