This product has all the resources for students to get started writing and understanding the characteristics of narratives. There's even an example story with directions on how to use it to introduce the elements of this genre. Also, included are examples of sensory, detailed rich settings to read aloud to help students understand how to show and not tell when choosing words.
To begin writing, students select a hook from a list, write a descriptive setting, then use sensory words, adjectives, transitions, character traits, and stronger verbs from lists they refer to when writing and revising their own narratives. Teach them to use the Writer's Narrative Checklist to go over their writing and you can score their writing using the Narrative Writing Rubric.
My students are stronger writers and enjoy writing when using the resources in this package. They keep the references in their writing folders to use all year long.
Included in this resource:
Enjoy writing with your students!
