I have included every step from writing an introduction "like a boss" to being able to identify and focus on the main event of their narrative. The students will also learn how to include important details that lead up to and follow the narrative’s climax or main event.
They will learn the value of using transitions to move their paragraphs and ideas smoothly throughout their story. As well, your students will complete a lesson in which they 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 these lessons and much more on how to teach your students to write a “powerful” personal narrative with this resource.
I have also included 24 personal narrative prompt task cards.

About the Seller
After spending almost 30 years as a public educator, I am currently a "Differentiation Consultant" in which I've worked with districts adding enrichment materials to their curriculum and I am an adjunct field representative supervising student teachers.
Over the years I have taught 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade; as well as serving as a Curriculum Specialist, Testing Coach and finally a Gifted Specialist for many years.
I worked as a contributor to major textbook companies for seven years which caused me to realize there is a lack of authentic, challenging teaching materials that require little teacher prep and offer the rigor needed to meet the depth of our curriculum standards that students currently face. The products I offer require little teacher prep, are fun and creative and provide the level of rigor needed to challenge even your brightest learners.
