A story map like this one is a great reading comprehension strategy that encourages students to do just that! It allows first-grade students to utilize the new information they are learning about the elements of a story and apply that knowledge to Jack and the Beanstalk. This story map helps students to retain information about a fairytale and encourages them to analyze the structure of the story by sequencing events in the plot. The information contained in this worksheet is a great tool for students to use if they will also be writing about the story, as their ideas are already laid out for them.
