Since it’s probably the most frequently used of the four most common types of writing, your child will spend a significant amount of time learning how to write narrative writing pieces. Quite simply, narrative writing tells a story.
Narrative writing contains:
- typically, but not always, first person language.
- a sequenced order of events, either as a retelling of something that already happened or a beginning, middle and end of a story.
- a point at which the conflict of the story is resolved (climax).
- a reasonable and satisfying resolution or conclusion.
Narrative writing is used for:
- personal essays or recounting of personal experiences
- fictional stories
- plot summaries
