Personal Narrative Writing (Grades 2-5)

Personal Narrative Writing Units (Grades 2-5)

This personal narrative writing unit includes mentor text, posters, writing prompts, lesson plans, and activities for teaching personal narratives.  Includes rubrics, checklists, and more. Your students will learn about brainstorming topics, writing introductions, conclusions, and much more! Available for second grade, third grade, fourth grade, and fifth grade students.

When it comes to writing, there is so much we want (and need) to teach our students. However, we cannot focus on all of it all at once or we will cause our students to hate writing. I have broken these units down into easy to implement lesson plans and have included all of the materials you need.

Each Personal Narrative Writing Unit (Grades 2-5) has 12 lessons. The lessons can be implemented at an easy pace---spread out over four weeks, or can be condensed to be taught in a shorter time period. Since there are twelve personal narrative lessons, you have time to build in any of your own mini lessons you feel your class needs. (For instance, if you see your students are struggling with a particular skill, such as capitalizing proper nouns, you can spend a day practicing that skill without falling behind with the unit.)

These lessons are included:
1. Brainstorming Topics
2. Picking a Small Moment
3. Remembering Details
4. Writing a Skeleton Outline
5. Developing a Strong Introduction
6. Writing the First Draft
7. Writing as a Paragraph
8. Adding Details (Concrete Details for 4th and 5th Grade)
9. Writing a Conclusion
10. Editing With a Partner
11. Revising & Revisiting the Rubric
12. Publishing

Personal Narrative student friendly rubrics and checklists.
The units include a student friendly rubric as well as a checklist they can use as they write. They help keep students focused on the skills taught during the unit, without overwhelming them.

FAQ:
I teach multiple grade levels. Are the units different?
The units are mostly similar, but include different mentor texts, and have different examples in the centers. There are a few other minor differences throughout the units that reflect grade level expectations.
