Have students respond to a read aloud or their independent reading with this hands on activity!
Included are circles that students can use to create a wheel about the story elements. There is also a graphic organizer that can be used beforehand to organize student thinking or check student answers before transferring information to the wheel.
Just have students complete each part of the story wheel retelling each element then have them cut, and attach with a brad.
Opportunities for differentiation:
There are two options for writing, one with lines and another without. Students can either write or draw their responses based on grade level and ability.
