Primary and intermediate students in grades K-6 can easily follow the "path" up and down the mountain to help remember the key components of a story...and it shows any classroom visitors what you are working on.
This colorful wall or easel chart is a perfect reference for elementary literature and writing and will fit into your readers' workshop and your writing instruction.
I provide two different options for creating this story mountain anchor chart:
You can use the bulletin board kit. Just cut out each part of the chart (including arrows) and build your own. This is ideal for primary grades - you decide how much detail they need.
You can use the cut-and-glue kit. Print it out on standard paper, trim it a little and put it together. Laminate it and you'll be able to use it year after year!
** This chart is included
in my Imagined Narrative Lesson Plan Bundle. Click here to see it
BONUS! I also include a small version for you to 3-hole punch and put in a notebook. Your students will have access to the information even after you take down the anchor chart.
This works great in conjunction with my Story Mountain reading and writing worksheets.
