This file includes 2 story maps that can be used with any book / story to record character, setting, problem, solution, beginning, middle and end. I made one with lines for older learners and one without lines for younger learners to illustrate. The two options are also nice for differentiating in your own classroom to meet the varied needs of your students.
These organizers work well for pre-writing also. Have students plan a story in words or pictures using one of these printables prior to writing a draft.
I love having these on hand to use when I have an unexpected sub situation.
