We recommend Sentences, Paragraphs, and Narrations as the second Writer’s Workshop unit to dig into each year.  It’s way more than just writing complete sentences.  This unit is all about crafting beautiful sentences and well-organized paragraphs for maximum “kapow” in your writing!

Sentences, Paragraphs, and Narrations should take about a month to complete in your homeschool and can be used with all ages of your children at once, family style.

Here’s how to use Sentences, Paragraphs, and Narrations:

Step 1: Mini Lesson

Each writing day begins with a Mini Lesson to teach a short little tool of writing.  Some of those tools are grammar and punctuation and others are word choice or copying the sentence structure of great writers. There are tons of ideas for Mini Lessons all along the sidebars of every page in this unit to choose from.

Step 2: Exercises

The bulk of the unit contains exercises, little writing projects, usually finished in one sitting, and then put into your Journal until you get inspired to take one through the Writing Process.  Sentences, Paragraphs, and Narrations has specific exercises in each of the three areas: sentences, paragraphs, and narrations.  They include things like identifying sentence fragments as a family, then choosing one fragment to craft into a beautiful sentence for your Journal.  There’s also the one where you use a printable from the printable pack to make a booklet of paragraph parts.

Step 3: Writing Project

Finish up Sentences, Paragraphs, and Narrations by each writer choosing something from his or her Journal to take clear through the Writing Process, from rough draft to revising and editing, to publication!  There’s an idea bank for Writing Projects and guides for how to work through the Writing Process.

Parents or a mentor will evaluate the Writing Project using the included rubric, so each child gets detailed feedback specific to the skills learned in this unit.  You get to be a writing coach instead of a red pen grader.

Printable Pack

This unit comes with a Printable Pack of printables that go with exercises and sidebar Mini Lessons.
