Narrative Student Writing Samples (4th Grade)

Here it is: the post you’ve all been waiting for–the one I’ve promised for some time now!  STUDENT WRITING SAMPLES!!!  😉

I don’t have a lot of time today, but I wanted to go ahead and post these samples for those of you who have been waiting on me to post them.  Our internet is still not working at my house, so I’m having to type this quickly (after school hours) on my school computer.

These are samples for our first narrative of the school year.  These kids stood out above the rest, so I wanted to show off their mad writing skills.  Here they are:

Stealing Candy  A narrative written by Blake Sterling.

Go Kart Race  A narrative written by Andrew Pensiero.

Is It Me  A narrative written by Avery May.

Yes, I have permission from these students and their parents to post their work with their names.  They are all super sweet kids who are totally stoked that I am using their papers as examples for the world to see.  They were even made famous in a workshop presented by Gretchen Bernabei!  You will see them on her blog soon if you visit

    I thoroughly enjoyed your students’ writing samples! One can tell they are really working hard. Great job students and teacher!

  2. I was at the training with you last week and really enjoyed hearing your students’ pieces. It lets me know that it can be done!

  3. Great job and consider the strength that posting to the web has for students. They feel committed to post their best because the whole world is watching. A strategy to continue their desire to write publicly is to use a few iPads and iBook. This will allow your students to write authentic books. Keep encouraging your students and you keep up the good work…share it with your campus!
