Use this fun story rollercoaster template to help young readers understand the different elements of a story. After students have finished their story, have them consider these who, what, where, why, and how questions as they relate to the plot.
After reading a fable or folktale, students will use this cute graphic organizer to record the most important things that happened in the beginning, middle, and end. Then they'll try their hand at identifying the moral of the story.
Then what happened? In this activity, students will choose stop and jot sticky notes from different parts of the story to practice their sequencing and summarizing skills as they respond to questions about the literature.
