FEEDBACK FROM THE COMMUNITY
★This was such a huge help for our beginning of the year unit. Set up the writing process in a very simple and easy to follow way for my kids.
★This has been so helpful in introducing my students to all the aspects of a personal narrative. Wonderful opportunities for them to check understanding throughout and give them a break from instruction with time to generate their own work.
★Love it! Super helpful for me! Kids loved it.
★This was a great resource, and my students were very enthralled with The Bird Hunter personal narrative example provided. It really got the point across into what a good personal narrative essay is.
