Writing Workshop:

- In writing workshop, students have been writing personal narratives.

Writers make their writing easy to read by using finger spaces between each word. "A narrative story is something that happened to you and how you felt about it" 

-Personal Narrative use words like I, me, my, or we. 

-These words let the reader know you are telling the story.

-Personal Narratives have a setting (where the story takes place) 

-Personal Narratives have a beginning middle and an end

-Personal Narratives tell the reader how you are feeling at the end

Today, March 31, 2020 students will write a personal narrative that is at least three sentences. (include a feeling sentence) Draw a picture to match your narrative.

On Friday we will be having another Google Hang-out. You will be asked to share a personal narrative that you have written during e-Learning. Take time over the next few days to choose what you will be sharing.
