I’ve been really stressed lately about my kids’ writing and the things I should be doing and haven’t, and all that great stuff. Where has the year gone?!
Anyway, to help cement the things they’ve learned about personal narratives so far this year, I put together a unit on personal narratives. It includes an introduction to personal narratives, an example personal narrative, blank personal narrative templates, and a personal narrative checklist. We also have Literacy Night coming up in a little over a month, and we have to display some of our kids’ writing. I thought it would be sweet if they each wrote a book about their families, and then included a personal narrative about their families at the end of the book. This is included in the Personal Narratives Made Easy unit. As usual, the first 3 readers to comment and leave their email addresses will get the Personal Narratives Made Easy unit with the bonus family book for FREE!
What advice do you have for other teachers who are stressed about teaching writing? I’d love some fresh ideas!
