Personal Narrative Writing Workshop Unit

This Personal Narrative Writing Workshop Unit has been SUCH a blast to implement! 

My sweet little writers were very productive in learning that their lives are FILLED with stories just waiting to come out on paper in personal narrative (small moment) writing. 

Having students not be stuck on "What do I write about?" has increased their volume of writing and drastically reduced their (and my!!!) frustration!

Personal Narrative Small Moment Writing

The unit encourages students to think about four main places in their life that they have stories to tell...

Then, you spend a while going deeper into each of those four parts...

Students LOVE writing the stories of their lives once they've unlocked the magic that stories are EVERYWHERE if you know to look for them. After we spent time on each 3 box planning page, kids would choose one story from one of the boxes and write a story.


When you do mini-lessons on adding details, this tool can come in very handy...

Hoping your students love this unit as much as mine do every year!
