Students have been using organizers in order to brainstorm and include important events in their stories. There have been a few presented to them this year, however, the majority of students are using the narrative writing diamond for narrative stories. Look below for different writing prompts. Take a look and practice completing a narrative diamond based on those prompts! It's a great way to practice for September!
