Story Elements: Posters for Grades K-3
I have created posters for the 5 story elements: character, setting, plot, theme, and point of view. Posters can be printed as is on 8 ½” x 11” paper or cardstock and laminated to be displayed in the classroom or used in small group settings. Also, posters can be minimized into half sheets of paper so students can glue them into their Reader’s Notebooks.
