Say goodbye to cookie-cutter writing prompts and HELLO to a more creative and personalized approach to writing narrative stories! This bundle of 4 seasonal narrative writing units will have your students crafting stories like a pro!
Turn even your most reluctant writers into awesome authors with these Back to School, Fall, Winter, and Spring all-inclusive Narrative Writing Units.
WHY THIS APPROACH WORKS:
- Offers choice – no student writes the same story
- Same format for all units – you don’t have to re-teach the writing process for each unit
- All-inclusive – you don’t have to look elsewhere for supplemental materials
- Great for students with disabilities and beginning writers because it provides support through graphic organizers, word lists, etc.
- The writing prompts are engaging and fun
- No two stories are alike because students get to pick and choose their story elements
- Once you have printed and laminated the elements cards for each unit, you can use them year after year – no reprinting
- May be used again and again with students creating new, original stories each time!

WHY STUDENTS LOVE THESE WRITING CENTERS:
❤️CHOICE: Your students will love being able to select the elements of their stories. It gives them more interest in writing and ownership of the story rather than every student responding to the same prompt.
❤️SUPPORT: Each writing unit provides students the support they need through word lists and graphic organizers to help them work independently and write fantastic narrative stories.
❤️FORMAT: Because each writing unit follows the same setup with element cards, seasonal word lists, graphic organizers, etc., students can work independently and don’t need instructions repeated for each center.
