This activity will allow students to explore their own memories for potential topics for a personal narrative. 

A personal narrative is an authentic piece of writing that details the events of a life changing memory.  With the implementation of the new Common Core ELA Standards, the ability “to narrate” for an audience is a key component that all students need to master.  Allowing them to write about their own experiences provided motivation, insight, and an authentic audience (their family) to share their writing with.
