Product Description
The story arc is essential for summarizing, finding theme, and narrative writing. This short video introduces story elements and a short phrase kids can use to remember them: somebody wanted but then so. The video can be used for professional development or with intermediate level students (third grade, fourth grade, fifth grade).

What’s Included:
• A 3-minute video that explains the story arc, introduces story elements, and emphasizes somebody-wanted-but-then-so.
• A story arc template to use for reading and writing in your own classroom.
