PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Teach the "story elements' in bite-sized lessons: character, setting (time & place), conflict, key events, climax, resolution, and theme. Culminate all in a fun way with my version of the Plot Diagram 'Hill'.

The story elements are one of the most basic components students need to grasp in language arts as we can see in the common core standards for reading literature in grades 2 through 6, standard #3. Thus, identifying story elements is a foundational skill to reading comprehension, and there are many ways in which this can be taught.

Here is my way of breaking down the traditional "Plot Diagram" into bite-size pieces. I do this so that my students and I are on the “same page” so that when I get into “analyzing plot”, “developing opinions about the plot”, and so on, I know my students will have mastered the basics of story elements enough so that they will be able to accomplish these higher thinking tasks more readily.

In this packet you get one color and one black/white worksheet for:
1) Character
2) Setting
3) Conflict
4) Events
5) Key Event
6) Climax
7) Resoultion
8) Theme
9) Plot Diagram (Teacher/Whole Class copy)
10) Plot Diagram (Student copy)

Thank you for stopping by and Happy Teaching!
