FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Narrative Writing Interactive Notebook FREEBIE”

by TeachToTell
5th - 8th Grade

Your students are back to school after a much-needed vacation and they are all excited to share how they spent it, so why not have them reflect on their experiences in apersonal narrative. This will not only give them the opportunity to get an introduction/refresher to the narrative writing genre, but would also enable them to capture some great memories on paper.

✓ Pre-writing Organizer - students will brainstorm key events that occurred during their vacation. They will then choose one event to narrate.

✓ Elements of Plot Interactive Notebook template (Cover and Response Sheets) - students will organize their ideas of the key event chosen, in an interactive notebook template, featuring the elements of the plot. 

✓ Writing Templates (2 choices ) - lined sheets with/without space for illustration.

✓ Self-editing Checklist

✓ Peer-editing Checklist

✓ Marking rubric - useful for teacher to pre-assess a student's writing skills at the start of the year or semester.

→ The templates come with instructions for students to follow and are self-explanatory.

→ Students will benefit from a review of the features of a Personal Narrative prior to this writing activity.

→ The drafting, writing, self-editing, and peer-editing activities are bound to keep your students busy for the first few days of school. 

→ The interactive notebook templates, writing sheets, checklists and rubrics may be used for other narrative (personal and fictional) writing topics.

♥ This will be a great start to the rest of the year!
