Personal Narrative: Sequencing

Personal Narrative: Sequencing

After you finish reading a story with your child, try recapping what happened by using "first, then, finally" to talk about the plot. Encourage your child to use transitional words when writing their own personal narrative stories.
When modeling your own personal narrative to your students, describe something as simple as learning to ride your bike or losing a tooth. Point out how your story has a beginning, middle, and end. When reading books, talk about the sequence of the stories and have students identify the beginning, middle, and end of the story.
