This story elements wheel is a tool for students to use while they are reading. I usually include this as part of a contract or foldable report on the book they are reading. Sometimes the students write the elements, sometimes they draw or a combination of the two. I have also printed this off on cardstock and turned it into a spinner with a brad and a paper clip as a game to play. We did this at a make-and-take literacy night, but it could also be used as a center in reading. This could also be used by students to plan their own story.
