Fiction Writing in Writers’ Workshop

Fictional writing is such a great genre of writing! Second-grade students absolutely LOVE to create their own fictional stories. Plus they are fun to read, too! Check out our lesson plans to teach fictional writing in our newest 2nd grade writing unit,  Writers’ Workshop 2nd Grade Unit Seven Fiction Writing. This unit teaches your students to create their own works of fiction. As a class, you will explore various characters and gain inspiration from familiar stories. 

Fiction Writing Lessons

In our first few lessons, students explore fiction writing. They brainstorm characters and setting ideas.
