These graphic organizers are designed to help students retell the parts of a story: Characters, Setting, Beginning, Middle and End. They are differentiated for multiple ability levels. The first and second pages align with SOLs K.9 f, g; 1.9 f, g, h; 2.8 e, h; 2.9 f; 3.5 d, f, g, h, i, j; They require the student to write the character names, setting (where the story took place) and a beginning middle and end to retell the story. The second page has a more detailed retelling, using key words such as first, next, then, after that and finally. In the retelling students can identify characters, problem, solution and use details.
The last page is for higher elementary, asking students to talk about Theme, Genre, Setting-where, when and Point of View. This page aligns primarily with SOLs 2.8 and 3.5.
All pages can be modified to have younger students draw pictures instead of write the details required. This allows older students who struggle with writing or who learn in different ways the opportunity to show what they know.
