Happy President's Day, friends! Do you have the day off today? Thankfully I do! Usually by now we've had a few snow days, but there's been next to nothing this year! I really need a day off to catch up on things! I'll be spending all day work, work, working!
Last week we discussed story structure and I thought I'd share with y'all. We did several different activities and they seemed to finally be understanding it.
To start the lesson, we completed this interactive notebook printable, which also serves as a study guide for the quiz.
If you used my Teaching Story Elements resource, you might recognize this passage as the same one in the interactive notebook printable for that skill. I purposely did this to talk with the kids about the difference between story elements and story structure. I worried that they might confuse the two because there are 5 parts of story structure and 5 elements of a story.
We then watched this video clip and identified the structure on the back of the interactive notebook sheet. We did this part as a whole group activity.
The next day we started on practice passages!
We used these graphic organizers to help us identify the beginning, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution of a story.
I displayed these posters for the kids to refer back to.
