Help students with identifying the setting of a story. With the materials in this resource, students practice being setting detectives by finding the clues that tell them where and when the story takes place.
In this resource you get:
Written responses to reading sheets with visual clues to help students focus on where clues and when clues separately. There are sentence starters to help reluctant writers or students with lower English proficiency answer each question. One version is for a story they listened to and the other version is for a story they read themselves or during small group reading time.
A sample story where students use color coding techniques to underline the clues that tell them where and when the story takes place.
There is a graphic organizer to record their ideas as well as an answer key included.
Teachers in grade level classrooms have found it helpful for their students to use these materials after reading books independently, during reading groups or even at listening centers. They find that the visuals and sentence starters help students who may not typically answer questions in writing.
I hope this resource is helpful for your students!
