Writer's Workshop is my favorite subject in my classroom. This template provides an overview of writing Personal Narrative or Small Moment Stories. It includes anchor charts on the following topics for student writing folders:
* How to Write a Small Moment Story
* Small Moment Topics
* Focusing in on Small Moments
* Graphic organizer for generating topics
* Editing Checklist
* Ways to Bring Stories to Life
* Transition Words
The packet also includes student writing paper and an example of a personal narrative story to share with the class. The anchor charts and examples may be shown on a SmartBoard or printed to include in writing folders.
Common Core Standards:
Write narratives in which they recount two or more appropriately sequenced events, include some details regarding what happened, use temporal words to signal event order, and provide some sense of closure.
With guidance and support from adults, focus on a topic, respond to questions and suggestions from peers, and add details to strengthen writing as needed.
