I am really looking forward to using this resource with my students. It is so varied and comprehensive. There are prompts and activities to suit all ages and abilities making differentiation so easy. Definitely worth downloading!
An incredible resource that has helped my kids write better stories.
I use this pack with a fifth and sixth class and found it a wonderful resource both in introducing the topic and in supporting group work as the slides can be printed in postcard size and given to groups as they plan their narrative writing. The writing prompts and checks can also be printed and laminated and reused with a whiteboard marker in group writing activities.
A comprehensive pack of resources! In other similar packs you had a powerpoint that explained many points, however, this pack does not seem to have one. Could that be added please?
Hi Diane. Thanks for your review. A Powerpoint version of the Narrative Writing posters is now available as part of this pack.
As we explore the stages of narrative writing, I put up the associated poster and encourage students to use the displayed information as a guideline for their own writing. Bright and colourful, the posters are easy to read.
I have found this to be a fabulous resource to use with my secondary special education students. It provides a clear scaffold for the students to follow and provides them with writing prompts to stimulate their thinking and provide them with starting ideas. I found the character descrition template very helpful and clearly set out.
This pack has some amazing resources and ideas to add to daily literacy groups and the writing centre!
A great resource - good range of information posters to put onto display as well as very useful checklists for the class to use in their writing. Another fab resource from this website!
What a wonderful resource.
The Narrative Writing pack is just wonderful. The posters are so creative and colourful. I love the way you have done posters for both the younger students and the older students, that helps us our so much.
My class just loved using the opening and having the posters to refer to and remind them.
Thank you 🙂
This pack on narrative features is a great resource for middle school. Very useful in practical ways to encourage kids to use all the narrative features we are teaching them!
