Navigate Narrative Writing – Starting with a Word Wall!

Do you have a group of struggling writers this year? We know the feeling. It is difficult for young writers to plan out a story that makes sense, follows a sequential order, and contains all of the elements that a narrative story needs. We’re here to help you do that with a simple yet highly effective narrative writing word wall to support writers on their journey to an original narrative story.

Print out and display these narrative writing word wall cards in your classroom.

A blank sheet is provided at the end of this teaching resource for any extra words you wish to add.
