UNIT 1 - Realistic Fiction
September 14 - October 20
Our first Writing Unit will focus on Realistic Fiction. Students will take inspiration from real life to create stories with well developed characters, clear settings, and well described action. The goal of this unit is to help students improve their use of descriptive language when writing and to support our deep comprehension when we read fiction.
There are many ways to communicate information within the nonfiction genre. 4th graders will practice traditional note-taking skills, write summaries to show the main idea of a nonfiction text, and compose narratives to tell about real events.
