Personal Narratives

For the past month, our class has been learning about Personal Narratives.  We have read many, and even wrote some of our own.  The first personal narrative we wrote was about the school reward we earned in October.  For the second Personal Narrative, kids chose to write about their own experience.  Here are the features of a great Personal Narative.
- It has a title
- It has a beginning, middle, and end
- Events are in order
- It has a narrator
- The word "I" is used a lot
- It has good, detailed sentences

book orders

It was so nice meeting with everyone during conferences.  Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedules to come discuss your child's progress.

Just a reminder that Scholastic Book orders are due today.  Please send me a note if the books you purchased are gifts for your child that you want to keep a surprise.
