Narratives & a FREEBIE! - Susan Jones Teaching

Narratives & a FREEBIE!

Soo... as the year comes to an end I am in the process of identifying what struggles I had as a teacher and how I can fix them for next year!

One was very easy to identify... writing narratives.

My students became PROS at writing constructed responses, opinion pieces, and non-fiction books... but when it came to writing a personal narrative, yikes they... I... WE failed!

Around February of this year I started making a packet that has a lot more guidance and structure to teaching narratives. I tried it out last month, made a few changes, and their narratives came out WAY better and WAY cuter! I am very excited to post my new packet on TpT:

If you pick it up for next year, please let me know what you think! I am ALWAYS open to suggestions to better my teaching :)

And as my title mentioned... a FREEBIE!!

This week my kiddos are reviewing contractions, and I don't know about you, but my kids are obsessed with any BUMP game so I thought I would make one for contractions.

Go ahead and click on any of the pics to download!

Happy Sunday!
