This digital notebook is specifically for the following story elements: characters, setting, plot, mood, theme, and point of view. Each Google slide is designed to teach these elements and how they work together in a piece of literature.
Some slides have movable pieces that students will drag and drop. Other slides will require students to put in their own picture, take notes on the elements, or make up their own example. There are also passage practice slides where students read a short passage and apply what they have learned about these story elements.
A full answer key is included with complete notes, answers, and examples! In addition, a support document is included that will give you suggestions and/or needed information for using each slide!
It’s time to throw out those paper interactive notebooks. They take too much time with cutting and gluing, and students will lose them. Go paperless with this digital notebook! Students can access their digital notebook in their Google Drive for years, and they love working in them!
There are 35 slides included in this resource. Of course, if you think of another idea for this notebook, you can simply have students add a slide!
