A story map that is aligned to the kindergarten and 1st grade Common Core standards of Reading/Language Arts to help student identify key ideas and details of a story. This story map focuses on identifying the characters, setting, problem and solution of stories.

Lesson Plan with printable Character, Setting, Problem and Solution cards included!!

A list of which common core standards this story map and lesson plan is aligned to is also included.

Works well with entire classroom or in small groups.

I have used this in my classroom with fantastic results. The students gain independence in looking for the characters, setting, problem and solution in stories they read on a much more independent basis. The students love getting a chance to be the "teacher" during the Lesson Plan Activity.

Thanks for looking! Enjoy!
