Are you teaching narrative writing? Not sure how to introduce or revise the concept in your literacy and writing lessons? This is the perfect PowerPoint that you can use as a digital warm up or introduction to story writing.
Each slide outlines the basic elements of a narrative (e.g. characters, setting, problem, and solution). It is very engaging and easy for the little ones to follow as it it is interactive and full of engaging clip art.
When I started my narrative writing unit each year, I wanted to introduce the concept. I was looking for a way to tell students about what a narrative is and how it is structured. But…I needed a way to explictly teach the concept that was actually engaging. When I just talked AT students, they looked disinterested.
That’s why I created this narrative writing PowerPoint. I was thrilled to see that my students loved the colorful clip art that moved around. They enjoyed the examples and questions that encouraged the collaborative sharing of their ideas. I could see that every student was enjoying the lesson, participating in the discussions, and actually understanding the concept. It became a life saver.
Well if you know how this feels, this PowerPoint is for you.
