W.4.3 Worksheets, Workbooks, Lesson Plans, and Games

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.4.3

:
"Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, descriptive details, and clear event sequences."

Our Take: Students should aim to write real or fictitious stories that are easy to follow. Descriptive elements, as well as other grade-appropriate writing techniques, maintain the reader’s engagement. Fourth grade students often take part in pre-writing activities where they outline the setting, character, and sequence of events of their stories before beginning to write.

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