This Setting of a Story Brochure is the perfect way to help your students practice finding the setting of a story while they are reading picture books.

This easy print and go brochure has a simple format that the students understand and can complete independently.

It also helps students set the purpose for reading by getting them to look for the setting of a story as they read.

They will walk away with 5 pictures books completed and a better understanding of the setting of a story! Score!

Here’s what is the students will do in this incredible brochure:

-Write their own definition of what a setting is

-Identify the "when" and the "where" of the setting

-Decide if the setting is important to the story

-Consider how the story would change if the setting changed

-Refer to a list of “Questions to Consider” when thinking about the setting of a story

-Read 5 picture books and find the setting of a story from each book

A little about why we created this brochure and why we love to share it with amazing teachers like you!:

We don’t believe that every time you read, you need to do an activity, but sometimes our students need more ways to practice the standards we are working on. Our students read a lot, so we decided to create these brochures to give them that opportunity to practice while reading. Why not hit two birds with one stone, right?
