Narrative Writing

This week I introduced narrative writing to my students.  I created an anchor chart in my room, but picky me, I didn't like the way it looked so I went home and made these posters.

After going over what narratives are we wrote a narrative together about our school day.
I displayed our writing above our writing bulletin board.  This hallway is a really long hall leading back to my room.  I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with this space and I think this works perfectly. 
It became the "Writing Hall of Fame."

I just laminated scrapbook paper and stapled it to the wall.  Then I clipped a binder clip onto the top to change out student writing easily through the year.

 These narratives are from Anna's Writing Narratives All Year Long Unit. 
I love teaching writing, but I also think it is the hardest subject to teach.  There is just SO much that goes into teaching writing.  However, I absolutely love to see how much progress students make throughout the year!
Also, don't forget to enter my Brag Tag Giveaway.  It ends tomorrow.

  5. I agree that writing is a difficult thing to teach. Thanks so much for these posters. They'll be very useful.

  6. Writing throws me off- I feel like I am squashing their creativity some times- or that I am putting words into their mouths (writings)

  15. Hi there, can you please - a narrative story has a problem (climax) and something about how it is resolved?

  16. Hi there, can you please add the other important elements of narratives - something like : a narrative story has a problem (climax) and something about how it is resolved?
