Google Slide, PDF | 1 page | Grades: 1 - 3

A template designed to help students plan their narrative writing.

This teaching resource is a cute narrative writing template to help students plan, structure, and order their story ideas before they begin writing.

The ‘story spine’ porcupine planning structure includes:

  • Until one day…
  • Because of that…
  • That caused…
  • Which led to…
  • Until finally…
  • Ever since…

Use it with a book, and have your students note the story sequence used by the author, or use it as a framework for early writers to begin structuring their own narrative tale.

Use the drop-down menu to choose between the PDF or Google Slide version.
