With this resource you will find a step-by-step guide teaching students to write a “powerful” personal narrative in the 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 and even how to include important details that lead up to and follow the narrative’s climax or main event. Among other strategies, students will learn the value of using transitions to move their paragraphs and ideas smoothly throughout their story. Last, students learn to “word up” their personal narrative by using specific literary devices to add just the right amount of “bling” to their story and create the perfect conclusion to their powerful narrative! Print and go writing instruction!
Common Core Aligned, but suitable to any writing curriculum.
I have also included 24 personal narrative prompt task cards.
