This bundle is designed to help you introduce your students to how authors develop PLOT in a story. Start by introducing the 43-slide PowerPoint in which the elements of plot are presented in a step-by-step manner and includes multiple practice opportunities you can use to guide your students through identifying the plot elements in stories.
Elements of plot include: exposition (introduction), rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution (conclusion). Definitions for each are included in the PowerPoint.
Following the PowerPoint, this bundle includes several engaging practice opportunities that can be completed independently or with a partner.
This bundle includes:
1. a 43-slide PowerPoint
with a 4-page matching PowerPoint companion handout
2. task cards with 4 short stories
3. a craftivity
that can be used at any time of the school year
4. a foldable craftivity
(This features an original short story with an answer key.)
5. a foldable craftivity
(This template can be used with ANY fiction book!)
6. 5 small group readers' theater scripts
, each containing a follow-up plot diagram
As an added bonus, I created 5 days of LESSON PLANS
that outline how and when I use each of the included resources! You don't have to follow the lesson plan format I provide, of course, but it might be helpful in providing a bit of direction for you.
