Everything you need to teach your students how to write a personal narrative!
With this 51 page resource you will find a step-by-step guide teaching students to write a “powerful” personal narrative. This resource is 100% aligned to the Texas STAAR 4th Grade Personal Narrative Scoring Guide and Blueprints.
I have included every step from writing an introduction "like a boss" to identifying the main event of their story. The students will also learn how to include important details that lead up to and follow the narrative’s main event.
Also included are lessons on using transitions to move their paragraphs and ideas along smoothly throughout their story. As well, they will 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 this and more to teach your students how to write a “powerful” personal narrative with this resource.
At the end you will also find six 4th Grade STAAR writing practice tests with personal narrative prompts in the STAAR test format.
