First Grade Narrative Writing Lesson - My Friend
Common Core Narrative Writing - My Friend
Students write a narrative story about a friend. Students add a title "My Friend_____". Students follow the prompts to write a brief narrative about who their friend is, what their friend does and what they do together. Students search for and insert one or more pieces of clipart to illustrate their story. Students learn to insert, size, position and delete their clipart. Students observe the rules of capitalization, word spacing, and punctuation. Students increase the font size to better fill the page. Students add their name and print.
This lesson plan integrates technology into the Common Core Writing Standards for narrative writing.
