Narrative Writing Lessons and Resources for Grades 1-6

Narrative Writing Lessons teach students to entertain through written stories. The narrative genre includes many text types, including adventure, fairy tale, fantasy, historical fiction, mystery, personal narrative, realistic fiction, or science fiction. Writing A-Z's narrative writing lessons provide the resources teachers need to help students create original fiction and nonfiction stories. Narratives help students understand the different parts of a story—beginning, middle, and ending—and often include elements such as characters, settings, and problems and solutions.
