I introduce narrative writing by starting with a class book. Our mini-lesson was a narrative has a beginning, middle, and end. We brainstormed the "Who," "What," "When," 'Where," and "Why" together. Working on wipe off boards we voted on the direction we wanted our story to go.
I quickly, and yes it looked quite messy, wrote it on large chart paper so we could remember from day to day where we left off. Once our story was completed I wrote it on large drawing paper and they illustrated.
I had two students read it at our first grade lunch. They were quite excited to share. I mean our assistant principal turned into a zombie and our principal was a witch. YIKES!! That might not have been the scariest part though. I think the kids and I agreed the scariest part was Mr. Cyr and Ms. Tuell eating ALL of the candy without us!
Sit back and enjoy...oh and I hope you don't get too scared.
