teaching imaginative narrative through picture books

Hi everyone.
So, I have been teaching 6th grade math for a while now; however, My team decided that we would each take a specific style of writing and become an expert at it; teaching three blocks over the course of the year. I was assigned to teach Imaginary Narrative; to help with providing more practice towards state testing.
I am very excited to teach this; however, I have never taught this style at a 6th grade level and it's been over 6 years since I taught this to 3rd grade; and everything is different now because of Common Core.

I have some ideas; like teaching story structure through picture books.For example in the begining of school I would focus on Bully theme "Each Kindness" and "The melting pot" .

I really don't want to re-create the wheel. Any thoughts on how I can educate myself; on how I teach this to 6th graders at a common core level and still keep it fun and relatable?

Thank you in Advance,
Michelle
