With this resource you will find a step-by-step guide teaching students to write a “powerful” personal narrative in 4th and 5th grade. I have included every step from writing an introduction "like a boss" to being able to identify and focus on the main event of their narrative. The students will also learn how to include important details that lead up to and follow the narrative’s climax or main event.They will learn the value of using transitions to move their paragraphs and ideas smoothly throughout their story. As well, your students will complete a lesson in which they learn to write the perfect conclusion.
Students will have fun as they learn to “word up” their personal narrative by using specific literary devices to add just the right amount of “bling” to their story.
You will find all of these lessons and much more on how to teach your students to write a “powerful” personal narrative with this resource.
I have also included 24 personal narrative prompt task cards.
