Clean and concise Story Mountain or Parts of Story graphic organizer for reading or writing. Kid-friendly language and fonts. Includes descriptions of rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution. Includes fill-in boxes for main character, setting, problem, plot, climax, and resolution. Fill-in boxes include guiding questions and lines! Based off of the work from the Columbia Teachers College Writing and Reading Project.
I use this with my fifth graders during the Personal Narrative Unit at the beginning of the year. It helps students to make sure their story follows the traditional story trajectory. It also helps students to focus their story.
Appropriate for third through eighth graders.
