PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Somebody...Wanted...But...So.... is a predictable plot structure in fiction and narrative non-fiction stories. It a reading comprehension strategy which helps students understand the WHO, WHAT, WHY & HOW of a text in the following way....

a character or person....
is trying to do something....
but can't (yet) for one reason or another....
until something happens and they can do what they want to do.

Here is a fiction example:

The wolf...
wants some sugar..
but the pigs won't give it to him...
so, he blows them away.

Here's a non-fiction example:

Rosa Parks...
wants to sit on her seat in the bus...
but the bus driver tells her move to the back of the bus...
so she refuses to give up her seat...
then she got arrested which started a civil rights movement.

You supply the tag board and the stories and I supply the rest. Create this colorful eye-catching SWBS or SWBST chart once, and can re-use it again and again with your guided reading groups or with any group reading lesson. Sticky notes are are also helpful. You can prewrite what gets written on the sticky notes ahead of time or compose it together with your students.

Enjoy!
