Certified writing teachers will help elementary students gain important skills in research, plot and character mapping, and recognizing their own writing errors.
Students can gain a lot of insight when they see their events laid out in order on a timeline or in a graphic organizer.
Discuss the importance of a beginning, a middle, and an ending.
Reading both fiction and nonfiction narrative stories will help prepare them for when they are a bit older, and when their writing skills are more developed.
While reading a narrative, generate a class discussion about the characters, setting, plot, problem and solution.
