    One of the main goals of teaching Slovene is the development of communication skills i.e. ability to receive and to create text. These include the narrative of paintings whose creation should be mastered at the end of the first educational period, in the oral and written form. In practice, it is usual for students to learn to create the oral narrative of paintings in the second-class paintings, while in class 3, they learn to create written narrative of paintings. During the practical training in 3rd class, we noticed that pupils have difficulties with the oral creation of narratives along the pictures (they lack the vocabulary; they describe the images instead of telling about the events on them; they are repeating themselves). There are even more problems with narrative writing. The purpose of the master's thesis was to establish a) the progress of the third-graders in the creation of a written narrative along images in a three-month period from the discussion of the topic and after its consolidation; b) the similarities and differences in the introductory reading of the creation of the written narrative in two classes of the 3rd grade of the elementary school; and c) thought of both, students and their teachers on the topic discussed. We used a combination of qualitative (practical training of teaching, part of the analysis of students narratives, interviews) and quantitative research (part of the analysis of students narratives, questionnaire for the students). In the theoretical part, we defined the communicative ability, communication and text in general and in the teaching of Slovene. In the empirical part, we found with the research that for high-quality writing of narratives along the pictures, learning material is not crucial but the consolidation of writing and the teacher's detailed and high-quality analysis of written texts, on the basis of which they can provide students with feedback on their texts. As we anticipated, both of teachers used the term "story" (and not the narrative) in the lesson, also the whole process of creating the narrative was not sufficiently consolidated and the texts of the students were examined superficially. The results of the master's thesis can be useful for teachers of the 3rd grade, because in addition to the above, they also focus on the typical mistakes of the students in the writing of narrative along the pictures.
