Responding to Literature - Understanding Story Elements Resource for Elementary School Students

Perfect for Google Classroom or Microsoft Teams!

Included are instructions on how to download the Google Slides into PowerPoint for Microsoft Teams - Simple, two second job

Take independent learning to a whole new level. Tap into deeper understanding with easy to use interactive slides with step by step lessons, links and editable response pages.

This is a BUNDLED unit with lessons for independent learning focusing on: Character, Plot, Setting, Conflict (& Problem and Solution) and Theme (& Moral)

***PLUS*** Included in the bundle is a final activity template to use with ANY story. Template focuses on story elements: Character, Setting, Plot (B,M,E), Conflict (Problem/Solution) and Theme. (see last page in preview)

Step by step instructions support students' independent learning, reinforced with practice activities - analyzing short films (max 4 mins) and displaying their understanding with online responses.

Some concepts are simplified for younger grades:

  • Beginning, Middle, End (in lieu of Plot)
  • Problem and Solution (rather than Conflict)
  • Moral (instead of Theme)

Included with each learned concept is a generic reading response sheet to be used with ANY story. ( I suggest assigning online books from Epic! )

This is the complete bundle - Understanding Story Elements for Distance Learning.

You can find the individual five units here:

Story Elements: Character - for Distance Learning and Google Classroom

Story Elements: Setting - for Distance Learning and Google Classroom

Story Elements: Types of Conflict - for Distance Learning and Google Classroom

Story Elements: Plot - for Distance Learning and Google Classroom

Story Elements: Theme - for Distance Learning and Google Classroom

(I suggest looking into Epic! online books. There, you can assign your students books to read and analyze using these units to support their distance learning!)
