Narrative Writing Lessons

Happy Tuesday, friends!  It’s our first it’s-so-dark-and-rainy-we-had-to-turn-on-the-lights days of the fall.  Kind of gloomy, but also one of my favorite things about this time of year!  Weird, huh?

So..today we’re going to do some thinking together about writing RIGHT HERE ON THE BLOG!  I’m going to give you your job and then you will leave a comment on this post to share your thoughts with me and with the other writers in our room.  Ready?  Ok, here we go!

Below are two of the anchor charts we’ve been using during our study of narrative writing.  Reread them to yourself.

Now I want you to think about something from these charts that you know you have tried during this unit, either in your Writer’s  Notebook or your story.  Tell me about how you have used it in your comment below.   You could start your sentence with something like: “During our study of narratives, I learned…and I tried it in my writing by…”  Your words might sound different than that, but use the starter if you need it!  I can’t wait to hear about your smart thinking!  The pieces you are writing are pretty great, Rm. 202, and I’m excited to see where we continue to go as writers this year!

  1. I used the first technique on the secon poster. The one. That’s says: Dream the dream of the story and then write it in a way that allows the reader to experience it the moment with you. To me this means that you are descriptive enough that not only can the reader visualize what is happening; but they can imagine hemselves in the story as a character. Even I fiction writings I try to do the best I can in being descriptive by using extensive vocab., using similes, etc. Rhat way the reader can imagine them selves in the story without thinking.

  2. Something I learned was how to revise a writing piece without summarizing, which I performed when I was revising my writing piece, The Visitor from Somewhere Else. It helped me because I was able to recreate the scenes I had originally imagined, in a different way. It also helped me generate new ideas for my story, to make it e best it could possibly be at that point.
    At first, when I first tried it in my writing, I found that after doing it, mistakes that had been veiled before, we’re now visible, and I could correct them by changing the spelling, adding or removing words to help describe the situation; things like that, we’re the things that eventually brought me to where I am currently in my story.

  3. I learned that in my writing I could use a person in my story or a important place.in my writing I used a important place and person because I wanted to talk about my step family and Atlanta.

  4. During this quarter in writing I have learned that when you are using your writing skills you need to dream the dream!! You need to have fierce wonderings it makes your writing better when you have a great imagination!!

  5. I used the first because I usually write about people who are important to me, but I try really to write a good story or list so I can become a better writer in my own way. I do things like read it carefully in a good way so when I give it to people to read its going to be good.

  6. I use the technique of first times and last times. I like to look back and crack up of those funny times. Like when I got lost in walmart. Another example when i got lost in the woods. Another example when my four wheeler went on top of me when i was going up a hill.

  7. What I did for the techniques for raising the level of narrative writing was. The punctuation and the spelling. And how I made sure my spelling was wright sometimes I might have gone on my ipad and seen if it was right or not.And the punctuation sometimes I would read the sentence over to ask my self if it sounded right or not.
