We created this product after finding a need for a simple mini unit to teach (and reteach) story elements / retell. We wanted to have something that the students could use at the time we introduced the concept, but then also have tools to use later for any books they read on their own.
This mini unit can be used with any book to boost reading comprehension.
When using this mini unit, it is important to emphasize the fact that the readers are being “detectives;” they are looking for clues to help them understand all the parts of the book. This mini unit includes materials needed to make a story elements anchor chart, story elements graphic organizers (for each SE and for all of the SE together), a story elements puzzle (to put in their book bins), text talk language frames (to use for partner work, during snack, in small group, etc.), and a Story Elements Detective “badge” for kiddos to earn after they are experts!
We have a Blog Post that showcases all of the activities in this packet! Check it out HERE!
