I love using this from the beginning of the year with my seventh graders to gradually teach them all the literary elements they need to know! I work this into my short story unit, and they provide examples from the various stories we read in class.
****I’ve updated this to include flashcards that can be copied for student use before the literary elements test (also for sale on TPT). Enjoy!! NOW 10 PAGES****

This is a great three-page chart for students in middle school learning the literary elements. I usually teach this in the beginning of the year while we are reading short stories. Students fill in the examples of each element during this time, and when it is completed, they have a great study guide for the exam (see my Lit. Elements Exam), and they keep it all year as a reference in their binders. The elements covered are split into Plot Terms and Author Techniques, and include the following:
First person narrator
Third person omniscient narrator
Third person limited narrator
There is also some space for a couple of extras if you happen to teach any others.
