:
"Orient the reader by establishing a situation and introducing a narrator and/or characters; organize an event sequence that unfolds naturally."

Our Take: Students should clearly introduce their reader to the main components of a narrative, including setting and characters. Help young writers organize events within the story to make the plot easy to follow. Graphic organizers help writers stay on target when writing a story.

These worksheets, workbooks, and lesson plans can help students practice this Common Core State Standards skill.
