How do you write a narrative essay for 3rd grade?
Writing a personal narrative is challenging for a third-grader, but modeling a good piece of writing and breaking the work into manageable chunks can help any child write with confidence and success. Use a shared experience, such as a field trip or family vacation, to teach the components of a story about an event that happened to the writer. After writing together, guide the student as he writes his own story. The Common Core State Standards for third grade narratives include organizing writing with transition words, a catchy beginning and a developed conclusion. They also require the right amount of details and the use of dialogue. Use a graphic organizer with four boxes to help a third-grader organize his writing. The boxes should contain the words "first," "next," "then" and "finally.
