Narrative Writing Resources

Help students create their own storytime with these materials designed to improve narrative writing skills. Writing prompts inspire the creativity kids need for narrative writing, while other resources help teach basic skills, like how to add dialogue to story or put events in order. You can switch writing up with lessons on persuasive writing.
Narrative writing, or writing about a sequence of events, may seem straightforward, but some students will need help with narrative writing. Being able to tell a good story starts with basic skills in preschool and develops throughout elementary school. With these narrative writing resources, you can choose from a variety of activities that will help students in every grade learn how to write a good narrative with strong verbs, sensory details, and the right point of view. There are writing prompts galore. Activities also help with writing narrative poetry and developing dialogue. Learning skills associated with narrative writing will improve students’ overall writing and reading proficiency.
