The fictional narrative writing unit, recommended for grades 5 to 6, helps you teach kids how to write a fictional story.
Lessons include story elements, characters, setting, problem & solution, dialogue, beginnings, endings, word choice, paragraphs, dialogue, revision, and editing.
The required mentor texts (children’s books that model how to write fiction) are:
The Proudest Blue by Ibtihaj Muhammad & S.K Ali
Lulu and the Brontosaurus by Judith Viorst
One is a short chapter book and one is a picture book.
Not only will these books model writing crafts and skills but you’ll enjoy them for your reading and read-aloud time as well.
