These four personal narrative resources contain pre-writing and planning activities that will lead your students through the writing process of writing strong narratives.

My student writers are so much more engaged when our writing prompts relate to and integrate with our current science and social studies themes! These writing activities can be linked to various units of study! Integrating the subject areas is so useful. It shows students the relevancy, power and importance of effective writing. This resource will inspire and jump start writers in 2- 4th.

Modeling in writing instruction is so important! There is a ready to go teacher model for instruction. Let’s face it… the best model essays and narratives are your own. When you write with and in front of your students and you share bits and pieces of yourself with them – that is the best way to model being a writer. However, as busy teachers pulled in a million directions, we’re not always up for it. That’s when a ready to go model writing sample tailored to your prompt is a savior. Whether you use my exact models or you use them to spark ideas of your own, I hope they can be as helpful to you as they are to me year after year.
