Using Picture Books to Teach Narrative Writing

Using Picture Books to Teach Narrative Writing

by NAOMI LAKER
Students learn how to write personal narratives, using picture books as models. After being immersed in read-alouds that focus on key story elements — character, plot, setting, movement through time, and change — students create their own story time lines, write promise sentences, stretch their stories, and more. Week-by-week planning calendars help teachers map out their reading and writing lessons.
