Karissa has been learning about the writing process. To practice what she learned, she wrote a personal narrative. She brainstormed, wrote a rough draft, edited, revised, and typed her final copy. Good work, Karissa! I can't wait to go fishing again soon, too!

We thought Grandpa would like this one:

Personal Narrative

When I was six, I went fishing for the first time with my family. I saw cows, a bull, and a calf. I felt hot and cold at the same time. I also tasted Cracker Jacks. The ladies were getting hot so we jumped in the lake, but the men would not jump in because they said, "True fishermen never jump in because it scares away the fish." We begged them, then they jumped in. I can't wait to go next time!
