Welcome back to the next lesson to get your students ready to ROCK 'N' WRITE! Now that your students have been exposed to paragraph writing and the writing process, it is time to move onto Narrative Writing.
1. Begin by reading a mentor text, Uncle Jed’s Barbershop by Margaree King Mitchell. Place the poster for Narrative Writing Elements on the board and discuss each element and how it relates to the mentor text. For the student portion, I've done this two different ways. I've had them take notes from the story or I've had students draw pictures relating to the element. Then have students place the printable in their interactive notebooks.
2. Next, review the Common Core Standards for Narrative Writing and inform students that they will accomplish all the standards during this unit. Have student also place this in their notebook to use as a checklist as they progress through the unit.
