Narrative, Opinion, and Informative
Guided by the Common Core Writing Standards, students will engage in three main types of writing: narrative, opinion, and informative. This includes personal narratives, how-to stories, and reports, covering a variety of topics. The writing process will begin with brainstorming using both drawings and writing. Students may then use a graphic organizer to organize their thoughts before writing a first draft, or a "sloppy copy," as we call it. By the end of 3rd grade, the students will be writing a 5 to 6 paragraph essay.
