Common Core and You {Narrative Writing....again??}

Yes. Narrative writing....again.....well, personal narratives! :)




Here are our "ouch stories":







We started with this as our pre-write, which I also use as our first draft:


And then we moved to our final draft {we stuck band-aides to the side of our paper for the added drama}:

Love, love, love the title! And I appreciate the plain lines, too.

If there's something kids LOVE to talk about---it's definitely their boo-boos! =) I have a generic page for them to tell me all about those at our writing station and it's one of the top things they write about daily. I love your freebie! The OUCH font is perfect! Can't wait to add this to our writing next year! Thanks for sharing! :)

Great idea for writing personal narrative. I'm going to use and adapt for 4th grade. I have used "Scar Stories" to get some of my more reluctant writers going... there is always a good story behind a scar. :)

Love the freebie! Thanks! I had the hardest time teaching writing narratives my first year so I created a whole TpT packet to help me and it went WAY better this year. This is a perfect little intro to our unit!
