If you find teaching writing overwhelming, this is for you! Students will love writing and you'll feel more comfortable teaching it.
Be sure to take a peek at the preview of this product to see the classroom resources your students can use.
This product includes 16 step by step lessons which help 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade students meet a piece of the Common Core Standard for writing a narrative--using temporal words and adding detail.
This unit begins with students understanding details and how they are used. Students take part in activities which offer a hands-on approach to this important piece of writing. Next students take what they know about details to learn how they are connected to a main idea using props and engaging group activities.
Students then learn to use a graphic organizer which will help them to write a narrative with temporal words.
But that's not it! Once students feel comfortable writing a narrative the real fun begins! This unit includes foldables, books, and activities to help students add more details to their writing.
