Grammar mini-lessons: personal narrative unit

Looking for sentence structure and grammar mini-lessons to teach within the personal narrative unit. Any thoughts about what would be good to cover in this unit as well as what mentor texts might help? I teach a 6th grade LA class.

Simple, compound and complex sentences
Subject/verb agreement
Pronoun work
Punctuating dialogue (and we start a new paragraph each time we switch speakers)

The prologue to Tuck Everlasting is a gorgeous description with lots of pretty sentences to use as examples. Really, any good piece of writing will have great examples. I would look at picture books; Eve Bunting comes to mind. So does Patricia MacLachlan. Owl Moon, by Jane Yolen, would be great.
