Five Suggestions On Writing A Personal Narrative Essay For 6th Grade Students

If you are struggling with your narrative essay there are a few things that you can do.

  1. The first thing you can do is to always pick something that happened to you. For this particular piece of writing you need to describe or narrate to the reader something that happened or someone or someplace. If you went to the watering hole on Mr. Johnson's farm every summer then you are the perfect person to write about what the experience was like. But if you never went to Mr. Johnson's then you will not have the information you need to really describe it.
  2. For each description that you include in the narrated story you want to cover all of the different senses. You want your readers to understand everything about the event including all of the five senses.
  3. If you are truly struggling you can break down each person , object, or event based on how it looked, what it felt like, what you felt , what it smelled like, what it tasted like, or any other unique details you can provide to make the story more realistic and convincing for the reader.
  4. You want to use concrete language. Concrete language gives your reader more in-depth descriptions about the events that you are narrating. Concrete descriptions are better than abstract descriptions because they give the reader all of the details they need.
  5. If you describe someone in an abstract manner you might say that they are a good teacher. But if you describe someone in a concrete manner you might say they are talented enough to show each student how to take their ideas and turn them into literary gold.

Be sure to review the personal narrative details too. You should ask your teacher any questions you may have about the assignment as soon as they give it to you. Then you should set up regular time during the week to work on the assignment. At the beginning of any session where you are writing or preparing your final work you want to look over what you have to do before you jump right into the project. This will help you to avoid making any mistakes or starting down the wrong direction with your outline or your rough drafts, which will in the long run save you a lot of time.
