My Summer Fun Narrative Writing

Background for Teachers


  • To teach this lesson, students will need an understanding of parts of a story. They should have had exposure to parts of a story and narrative writing in first grade.
  • However, since it's been summer break, I will make sure the students remember the elements in writing a narrative piece. I have a link below for the refresher on Parts of a Story.
  • The following resources can help teach this topic.  The 'Jack Hartman Parts of a Story' video will refresh their memory of the parts of a story to include in their writing.
  • We will be using the resource "Perfect Paragraphs" attached to this section as well. . We will be using pages 8, 9, 11, 13, 17, 18.
  • Page 18 is the rubric for grading this piece.
