INTRODUCTION TO THE ANCHOR​

Anchor 3 for writing is set around narratives, both personal and creative. Students are tasked with developing a story naturally using dialogue, character development, and effective word choice. This mode of writing is ideal for the beginning of the year as you can learn more about students and work on descriptive writing. Keep in mind this video is longer than normal due to the nature of the how the standards are written. With the exception of third grade, 4-6 contains 5 additional standards that are broken down in this video.

  • W.3.3 Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, descriptive details, and clear event sequences.

  • W.4.3 Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, descriptive details, and clear event sequences.

  • W.5.3 Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, descriptive details, and clear event sequences.

  • W.6.3 Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, relevant descriptive details, and well-structured event sequences.
