This product helps students take ownership of their personal narrative writing. It contains two broad categories of personal narratives:
- "A Place I Explored"
- "A Challenge I Faced"
Each category has its own Prewrite Graphic Organizer as well as a corresponding, detailed Independent Revision & Editing Checklist. (Check out ALL my Independent Revision & Editing Checklists here https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Independent-Revision-Checklists-2549551)
The Prewrite Graphic Organizers highlight 3rd-5th grade writing skills such as sensory details, personal voice, problem & solution, introductions & conclusions, and descriptive language.
The Independent Revision & Editing Checklists will DRAMATICALLY reduce the amount of time spent on conferencing, as it gives students clear and very detailed lists of revision ideas, as well as clear ways to show their teacher what revisions were made. The revisions and edits are extremely thorough, and cover topics such as organization, sentence types, vivid language, length, punctuation, and more.
