Our last writing unit of the year is here! Hello Creative Narrative! Our primary unit is space themed (find it here), but I like to incorporate creative narrative into our reading block as well with some great mentor texts!

Without further ado, here are my 10 favorite books to use while teaching about dialogue, plot, and characters during creative narrative writing:

Brainstorming: The Best Story

Planning/Writing Plot: The Plot Chickens

Dialogue: Nothing Ever Happens on 90th Street

Fictional Events: The Night I Followed the Dog

Graphics Novels/Art as Creative Narrative: Page by Paige

Plan & Climax: The Wednesday Surprise

Descriptive Words: Mars Needs Moms

Fantasy Plot: King Arthur’s Very Great Grandson

Dialogue & Plot: Jumanji
