The main events from each story are enlarged on 8.5 X 11 pages (1 event per page). After reading, show the students an event and have them determine whether it occurred in the beginning, middle, or end and then justify WHY. Included are an anchor chart (to help them figure out which events happen in the B, M, E), and justification cards.
These two books are also great to use for comparing and contrasting. We c/c the Mrs. McNosh book with Harcourt's "Enormous Turnip". Also, there are many different Stone Soup versions available online.
