Children draw on their own experiences to craft a personal narrative in this essay-writing worksheet. Students learn that a personal narrative, like a work of fiction, often involves a problem, or conflict, as well as emotions that can change throughout the story. However, in the case of a personal narrative, these events and feelings are based on lived experience! Students then use a series of prompts and word banks to map out and write a short personal narrative of their own. Designed for a third-grade literacy curriculum, this worksheet supports narrative writing skills, in addition to helping students become more attentive readers of personal narratives by other authors.
