Fiction writing in second grade. Daily writing lesson plans, anchor charts, and resources to print and teach fictional writing in 2nd grade.
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.
All of the lessons are planned out with anchor charts and resources. We make it easy to print and teach!
After deciding on characters and setting, students begin planning their story and the writing begins!
Here is a fictional story that was written by a second-grade student during the month of April.
The title of his story is “Castle Crashers and the 4 Crystals”.
Lesson seven of the writing unit is about using punctuation to convey meaning. We use the mentor text, Grumpy Monkey (affiliate link) to show this writing strategy and encourage students to try it in their own writing.
Lessons 8 and 9 teach students about dialogue and using quotation marks.
Throughout the writing unit, the lessons build upon each other to develop confident writers. Here are a few more examples of fictional writing in second grade.
With so many anchor charts, make sure to keep them organized to save your sanity! Click the link below for a blog post with some organizing tips.
We are super excited to have a writing curriculum for second grade. Take a look at what we have for you awesome second-grade teachers!
