This resource is best used with Eve Bunting's picture book: The Memory String.
It is a good exercise to use when reviewing the plot of short stories. Students will be invited to listen to the story and note the different parts of the plot as they listen to the teacher tell the story. Teachers will have the option to use the activity as a springboard for class discussions or as a quick assessment of learning.
