One of the goals for first grade in both the Common Core and Texas (TEKS) is to identify the beginning, middle, and end of a story. This printable allows you to print two pages each for either the Common Core or TEKS.
The first page has 3 lined boxes for students to WRITE the beginning, middle, and end. The second page has 3 blank boxes for students to DRAW the beginning, middle and end.
You can either have students complete both (writing and drawing), or differentiate for struggling writers (drawing their answers) versus able writers (writing their answers).
I am using this in my school library to prepare for an upcoming author visit. We are studying the author's books to get to know him better, while accomplishing one of our state learning goals at the same time.
Thanks for visiting my TPT shop!
