PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Personal narratives are challenging for many students because they don't follow a particular structure. This four-page packet guides students through the writing process, from brainstorming to listing out characters, settings, sequenced events, and sensory details. An additional cover page gives a few examples and non-examples of personal narratives. After students complete the packet, they should use page 3 as a sequencing guide and include the other details where it is appropriate for their particular story.

Cover: What is a personal narrative? Examples and non-examples.

Page 1: Brainstorming. "I could write about that time when..." There are four boxes for students to write ideas for narratives and write a short explanation of why that event is important to them.

Page 2: Who, When, Where. This page asks the student to write out the characters/people involved, the setting(s), and when the memory occurred.

Page 3: What. This page helps students think about the events of their narrative in a logical order. The page includes a header where students can write their idea (e.g., "going to the lake with grandpa last year") and what happened at the beginning, middle, and end. It also includes a box in which students can write the moral of the story or what they learned from the experience.

Page 4: How. This page asks students to dig deeper into their memory and think about sensory details: what they saw, what they heard, what they smelled, what they tasted, and how they felt.

Happy teaching!
