This item includes a Google Slides presentation for you to show to your classroom that discusses story elements. Including: characters, setting, problem, solution, and theme.
It starts out by reviewing the story elements and asking some discussion questions, then it moves on to reading a short story and finding the elements in it. Think that part as the I Do! Then you move onto the "We Do", students watch a video and you fill out a graphic organizer together and find evidence! The level of difficulty can be changed just by the expectations. My 5th graders will have to provide great evidence, using multiple sentences. You can expect less or more based on your students needs.
Finally the students complete an exit slip after watching a second short film!
This is a great end of the year reading lesson to keep students engaged, and fun for us teachers as well! :)
The link to access the slides is in the powerpoint in the zip folder you will download. If you have any problems please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
