Personal Narrative Writing, Round 1
Check out our first published personal narratives for the year. We worked on zooming in on a small moment, and revising our writing to include an interesting opening and as much “voice” as possible. We also explored several strategies for generating entries in our writers notebooks: mapping our hearts; writing from a photo or special object; writing off of our literature connections; and creating "Top Ten" lists. We read Ralph Fletcher's thoughts about revising our writing, and he inspired us to become "revision surgeons" who bring our writing to life on the operating table.
