Grammar Activity
Song: "My Personal Narrative"

  • Remind students that a personal narrative is a story about something that actually happened to the writer. Then, have them listen to the song.

  • Have students discuss the parts of a personal narrative, then listen again to the song to identify each part.

  • Encourage students to write their own personal narratives, and ask volunteers to share their narratives with the class. (For younger students: Suggest a broader topic, such as an All About Me" autobiography. For older students: Suggest a more specific topic, such as "The Best Birthday Ever" or "The House Where I Live.")
