Personal Narratives

Personal Narrative = Personal Story

This trimester we improved our narrative writing skills.  Techkids focused on the following writing skills:

  • Writing interesting leads
  • Telling a story like a movie in our minds
  • Using a story arc to focus writing
  • Using action verbs & precise nouns
  • Using transitions to show changes in time
  • Writing satisfying endings.

During each writing unit we practice a variety of strategies to help us improve our writing.  The chart to the right highlights the strategies students can choose from when ending their narratives.

We discovered during our on-demand assessment Techkids need more practice focusing on small moments, so we will spend a few weeks after vacation to sharpen our narrative writing skills before moving on to informational writing.
